I hope that everyone had a truly wonderful Christmas! Mine was perfect and one of the best things of all... my internet is working once again. Yeah! It's the little things isn't it? LOL ;)
I'm so glad that you are taking time out of this busy holiday season to stop by for a new Sweet November Spotlight as we kick off a week of sneak peeks and blog candies for the upcoming January release!
Today I want to shine the spotlight on an amazing paper crafter and stamper, Nancy Thomas! I was first introduced to her gorgeous work back in my scrapbooking days at the Lifetime Moments message board, where she was on their design team and created beautiful pages that were clean lined in design with whimsical touches thrown in. Sadly, the LM store shut down but after awhile I found Nancy again through blogging and, like myself, she was stamping and card making too. Nancy's signature style had transitioned into a new medium and is as delightful as ever... luckily for me she is a big fan of Sweet November and I love seeing how she brings the SN characters to life on her cards . :)
Alrighty, time to share how Nancy answered the SN questionnaire...
1) What color do you feel represents your personality and why?
Pink definitely. I've always been a girly girl.
2) Is your style of dress/ home decor similar to your style of card making?
I think both my style in fashion and home decor are somewhat similar to my card making style - classic with a twist, nice clean lines.
3) What one thing always puts you in a good mood?
Playing with my granddaughter.
4) If you could visit any time in history when would it be?
I think the 60's. It was a revolutionary and liberating era for women. And the fashion was radical.
5) If you were a mythical creature ie. fairy, elf, mermaid, troll, wizard, witch etc., what kind would you be and why?
I think I would probably be a fairy. You know, cute, sweet and thin! Plus it would be fun to flit here and there easily.
6) If you are a fellow Gleek, which character from McKinley High do you most identify with?
Sorry, not a gleek at all. I think I've only watched one show actually. My television watching tends toward the darker side like Fringe.
Hey, nothing wrong with that, Fringe is pretty awesome too! :)
Check out this fab card featuring Winter Penelope and Juniper that Nancy created. It was an easy one to be inspired by as the soft pastel color palette and touch of sparkle really caught my eye. I also followed her same basic layout design, just flipping it a bit to better suit Winter Darby. All in all this came together so quickly and I don't think I've ever had Darby looking as soft and delicate as she does here and I've got Nancy's pastel color inspiration to thank for that. :)
Nancy will be joining Traci, Rachel and myself in the January Sweet November sneak peeks starting tomorrow! This new release celebrates that wish all little girls entertain at one time or another... the wish to be a princess, so be sure to come back and take a peek! ;)Supply list:
