Splitcoast Stampers FS159_Jovialjudi/Judi Rose

This is the card I chose to case.

Judi's card:

Things I changed:

color of cs



inside design

I used a stamp from B Line Design stamped in India Ink black.

Kept the same embossing folder/Manhattan Flower by SU.

The cs is Very Vanilla and Basic Black.

the sentiment is SU/Whimsical Words.

The inside is done in Basic Black with a layer of Very Vanilla with a punched edging.

I added little black pearls for the jewellery and popped the top of the scarf and flowers.

Judi, I hope you like it.
Hugs always, Nicole

CAS54 Challenge Spring is in the Air

For this card I used a new stamp set from SU/Garden from the Heart. I love it....
I stamped the hat on WW with Palette Noir black and colored with Copics and then cut the image out.
The dp is by SU/Tea Party. I also used Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla and WW.
For the matting on the main panel I used rectangular Nesties in plain and scalloped.
I popped the hat onto the Very Vanilla panel.
The sketch is from SC266.
I hope it makes you think of Spring which I hope comes real soon.
Hugs always, Nicole


My friend Vicky Gould honored me with this amazing blog award. I was speechless when I saw that she had chosen me for this as I've not been blogging much these days. Vicky, I thank you with all my heart.

Now I have to tell everyone ten things about myself, not going to be easy....LOL

1.In my opinion I have the very best of husbands and best friend all rolled into one.
2. We have a blended family of 5 children....2 mine and 3 his, 8 Grandchildren ranging in ages from 7 to 26 and one Great-granddaughter that I've not had the priveledge of meeting yet.
3. I love to travel and do so as often as money allows.
4. My favorite place to go is Florida, I love everything about it.
5. I've visited every Province in Canada which I think is quite an accomplishment.
6. I have 2 fur-babies "Papillons" named LilBit and Dora and they are my constant shadow and keep me from ever feeling sorry for myself.
7. I love, love, love to read. My favorite books to read are fantasy, anything to do with wizards, fairies, dragons, vampires, lycanthropes.....well you get the gist of it I'm sure.
8. I'm retired and love it, I can't wait till Chuck retires and we can be together all the time. I think that I'm the only person who wants their husbands around 24/7. LOL
9. I'm an only child and always wished for a sister to grow up with.
10. I have a few hobbies...stamping "number 1 right now", painting, quilting, photography and decorating.

I can't believe I actually thought of 10 things, not too exciting but I LOVE my life.....

I think that if I had not found SCS when I did that my life might have been different. You have made that much difference. I so enjoy all of my SCS friends and cherish each and everyone of you.
You Vicky are a very special friend and I thank you again for this award.

Now I have to present this terrific award to 4 people - Here are my choices:
HamiltonGal/Laurie Tirone
JoJot/Joanne Grezlak
Anne Ryan
Cheryl L Rowley
