Birthdays

Hello and Happy February to you!

I hope winter has been a mild one in your neck of the woods. We have been enjoying beautifully warm days with highs in the 70s and low 80s! The few days below 60F have been tolerable. My kind of winter for sure!

I'm popping in today to share my batch of February birthday cards. There's three watercolored panels

and one stamp layered flower. The flower card is my version of spotlight coloring.

Hope you get to do a lot of crafting/coloring/painting this month. I'll see you in March for another #30DayColoringChallenge.

Crafty hugs,

Nan and the Girls

Supplies: Stampin Up, Penny Black and Altenew stamps; SSS fog, bazzill black and Neenah solar white cardstock; staz-on and distress inks; Hero Arts infinity circle dies.

NBUS #9

Woo hoo my second NBUS challenge entry!

I've made a valentine card! Well, actually it's a postcard. I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day or of making such cards, so I've stayed away from the usual pink and reds and love theme and created a grungy distressed valentine.

My NBUS on this card are the pattern papers from various collections that were hoarded hiding in my stash for ages and the straight stitch die.

I'm linking up with Darnell's NBUS#9 Challenge.

Stop by Darnell's blog http://www.djkardkreations.com/2017/01/nbus-challenge-9.html and say Hello and wish her a quick recovery.

Sending warm hugs your way sweetie!

Crafty hugs,

Nan and the Girls

NBUS #8 Challenge!

Hello,

I did it! Jumping for joy, well, clapping hands, no, waving one hand frantically ...that's it....I finally have something made so I can join the NBUS challenge!!!! Darnell has only been having these for two years!

NBUS = Never Before Used Stuff

My NBUS for these cards is the SSS Spring Floral die and the Colorbursts. I was playing with the Colorbursts to see what they did. Sprinkled a bit on watercolor card and spritzed with water. One color on a card. So now what to do with them. Then I saw a pic on Pinterest and used its layout for inspiration. Darnell's optional theme was to color on Kraft. Well, I have colored flowers on krinkled kraft! Close enuf.!

Here's the two birthday cards I've made for a couple of my neighbors.

Be sure to pop over to say Hi to Darnell (http://www.djkardkreations.com/2017/01/blog-birthaversary-surprise-nbus.html )You'll be glad you did. She and Hammy are a hoot.

Happy Anniversary, Darnell and Mister!

Happy Blogaversary too!

Crafty hugs,

Nan and the Girls

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hi y'all,

I'm sharing a couple of my miniature paintings. Love doing these using mdf blanks, an ATC size and the other is 2"x5". These are my abstract impressions of photos.

The first is of the first snow in my Maine friend's backyard.

And next is my impression of a harvest moon pic also taken in Maine by Paul Cyr.

I want to wish everyone a very creative, heathy and happy 2017! Hope you are creatively challenged throughout the year.

Merry Christmas II

Happy Christmas week everyone. I hope you can relax and enjoy the festivities this week. I've been listening to the new Pentatonix Christmas album. Love their voices.

Any who, I'm back today to share my Christmas cards. I had four designs and made a total of 30 this year! I pretty much CASEd designs that I saw in blogland.

 
Forgot to take a pic of these next ones with their white hemp bows.
This last one goes out to all of my followers and blogland friends!

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone! Hope Santa brings you oodles of new crafty goodies.

And may your 2017 be healthy, filled with love, happiness and lots of crafting!

Hugs
