Hi everyone, what a nice three day weekend...even if I did have to go into work on monday so that I didn't get behind with my work. Actually, I will admit that I worked from home so it wasn't too bad. I got off work on Friday a little early so that was nice too. My kids were off camping and having a good time. However, it was very nice to have my grandson here with me for the weekend. I always enjoy having him here. Another week has rolled around and here it is Wednesday again. I always look so forward to Wednesday to see what my fellow DT mates have created. I am always in awe at the beautiful cards that they produce each week.

Why don't you come and take a look. I would love to have you join us over at

  1. Hi Nancy, I just love your card, such a cute image and those flowers are just lovely. Glad you had a special weekend with your Grandson I bet he kept you on your toes??? I can just see my son carrying his cat around like that just after he's fed him and wonders why the cat cries!!!

  2. Very sweet card Nancy. You colored the image beautifully. I really like those flowers - the patterned paper give that something extra.

  3. Oh how I love pink! I think I will always be gravitated towards anything pink - this is no exception!! Love those flowers Nancy!!

  7. That is so cute and i just love the image. Gorgeous flowers!

  8. Nancy, what a wonderful card! I love Meljen's images too - they are so fun and cheerful! Your color combination is great and I'm such a fan of embossing - it really brings out the color in card stock and makes a card stand out so well! Great flowers! Good that you had a nice weekend even if you had to work from home. I used to do the same to stay on top of things - nothing like stress when you get behind, huh?

  9. Great minds think alike! I'm glad we used the same image and I love your flowers. Your coloring of the blue jeans is just perfect.

    Peace & Luv,

  10. Hi Nancy! Gorgeous card, your image is so sweet. The pink, black & grey are fab together & such pretty flowers as always :)


  11. Hi Nancy, glad you had a good weekend with your grandson, that's so special for both of you.

    Love this pretty card, those flowers look fantastic and that image is just adorable and so beautifully coloured!

    Thanks for the blog visit, always lovely to "hear" from you.

    Have a great week Nancy, take care!

  12. Oh Nancy your card is just to sweet. I love your coloring. Your hand made floers are the best. I think youll have to teach me how to make them when you come. I cant wait to have you visit. Have a sweet day!!!

  13. It is sooooo nice to still see some bright colors. It has been a bit gloomy here in Alberta and you can tell Fall is coming so your card made me smile yesterday and this morning. We had a great long weekend too, so glad to hear you did too. It is awesome to see what the DT's do with the sketches too. I really enjoyed working with it.

  14. Hi Nancy, I love comments too so thanks. We would love to have you at 4 Crafty Chicks to play. I am so excited. Each week will be something different.

  15. Hey! I'm glad that you got to spend time with T but it would have been fun to have you join us camping. It was really nice! I really love your card and the flowers are too cute!
