Birthday cards

I needed a bunch of birthday cards for May, June and July so I’m trying to use blogger again to post them. Aagrrhh somewhere along the line I’ve been switched to google+šŸ˜¬šŸ˜¬ Now how do I pull in my pics from my iPad photos? I miss Blogsy, it made updating and importing pics so easy.  geez, we have to use google photos. :/ Oh by the way, I’m on Instagram now, Nan Gustafson (esk918). Hope to see you there.

First up a couple where I was actually able to do some ink blending! I haven’t been able to hold the blending tool for years. My hand was out of commission for a few days after this session ... guess that’s the end of ink blending using Tim’s tool.

Next up are a few water colored flowers. I used the altenew peony spray stamp and die cut them. Also used a NBUS stamp from Unity on a gel press painted background.

Well I see blogger has screwed things up even more. Did I mention that I’m on instagram. That’s easier for me to use one handed. Catch me there as I don’t see myself using this messed up blogger anymore. 
Crafty hugs,
Nan and the Girls


  1. When I emailed, I didn't realize you were still only able to use one hand, Nan. I can see where any extra steps would make it too difficult for you! I'm glad to see you still making cards, however. All of these are really dynamic and beautifully executed! I wish you all the best!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Oh dear - Blogger and blending both going all wrong for you by the sound of it - though that last (?) blended card is a really pretty one. I'm glad you managed to get it done. I always love those wading birds. The peonies are delightful too, and you can probably guess how much I love that girl enjoying the meadow breezes at the end.
