A Tree, A Snowman, Some Flowers, and A Baseball Player with An Attitude

I had some time to play yesterday (until we went to the medical clinic to resolve Hubby's Pink Eye anyway). Here are some of the cards I did:


This one is a case of the very talented Pat Smethers (Blooms in a Box on SCS). I cased THIS card by Pat. I needed a very good Sympathy card for a friend at work who just lost her husband. Sad and heart-wrenching! My image is SU! Lovely as a Tree and I used some old hymnal pages as my dp.

Then I checked out the Mix-ability Challenge on SCS which is to drip a medium in some way. That sounded like fun so I did these three cards (I saw something like the coffee card on Pinterest and the other two are made with the SU!Inspired by Nature stamp - I just dropped SU!Reinker dye directly on the images):


Then I cased the Featured Stamper at SCS - LuvLee - I cased THIS card using the Small Talk image by Cheryl Alger (available at Squigglefly):


Lastly, I had time to do the Teapot Tuesday Challenge at SCS which has the teapotters (hope I can still call myself one since I haven't participated in ages) sending baseball cards to Jason who is recovering from a very difficult surgery. I used another Cheryl Alger image called Play Hard or Go Home - Noah which is now available at Squigglefly.


Hugz!

  5. Goodness, Nancy, you are rollin' out the cards. I absolutely love that hymnal card. Of course, they are all winners. I spy a snowman card....love it. Pink eye? Oh, that couldn't be good. Hope hubby is doing better.
    Yes, I knew you were a Lobos fan but had forgotten it. I was thinking you were for that 'other' Alabama team...you know the one. I can't say it. LOL

  13. I think you and Charlene have both kidnapped my mojo! These are all such creative cards Nancy - each one more beautiful than the last! I absolutely love the tree stamped over the sheet music, and I love the old feeling the paper has. Your coffee ring card made me smile and your flower silhouettes are gorgeous. I especially love the warm colors you used for the background on the sympathy card. Your snowman card is darling - a favorite image of mine too. I like the netting and I'm going to be stealing your idea for how you did the sentiment on that! Your last card is really cute too. I love the layout you used and that baseball paper background is the best! Now set my mojo free!

  19. Holy smokes! You've been busy with cards (and a medical visit to boot! hope DH feels better), Nancy. Doesn't it feel GOOD to crank out creations?? I am inspired by the simple sympathy card in the middle of the mix. The coneflowers look neat the way you stamped them in a watercolory sort of way.
