Here For You / NAC #48

Pin It
Hey y'all. Happy Saturday! Another week has come and gone and that of course means it's time for another Nacho Average Challenge entry. It's always such fun to see what they are going to bring each week and the Amazing ideas from their design team. This week is certainly no exception.

Do you ever have an idea for a card or project and you can see it in your mind and it comes together just like you visualized? That doesn't happen very often with me, but today it absolutely did. The only thing that I hadn't visualized was the sentiment, but I think even that turned out. Let's see what you think. Here's this week's NAC entry-

I used the Pleasant Poppies stamp for today's focal point. I kept the rest of the card pretty simple because I wanted the poppies to really be the star.

I stamped just a portion of the stamp in VersaMark and then used Black Embossing powder to set the image. I used my blender pens to color in the image. I really love how easy it is to get so many color variations and a watercolor effect with them even on plain card stock. I used the Petite Pairs for my sentiment and my Ticket punch to create a label and border.

Here's this weeks challenge-

You know how I like pretty insides, so I had a little fun in there too-

I'm so excited by how this card turned out. Love when that happens. :) What do you think? I hope you like it and I really hope the fabulous NAC DT do too. Of course, since this is a Nacho post, I have a picture of my sweet little Nacho too-

She's turned 2 months old on the 30th. I can't believe how big she's getting!!! I miss my sweet little girl. Luckily her momma sends me pictures almost every day and we get to Face Time too. (Thanks Apple!)

Well, that's all I have for you today. I hope you liked my card and it inspires you to get creative. If you have questions or comments, I hope you'll leave me a message below. I love hearing from you and I read all of your comments. They really do make my day! If you'd like to +1 or Pin today's card, I've put the buttons on my blog for your convenience. Friends and Followers are always welcome too! :)

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to stop by my little corner of the world. You are very appreciated! Till Next Time-

Remember- Life is often more about the storms than the peace they seek to overwhelm. It's not about Waiting for the storm to pass, but Learning to Dance in the rain.

Be Safe,
