Spicy Crafting

This card really excites me.  Not because it is any great beauty but because of how I colored it up.  The Fall Leaf with Acorn (I cut off the Acorn) images were colored with these things (in order):

*Lipton Tea with Honey in Pineapple Mango
*Yellow Tail Merlot
*Tabasco, Coffee Grounds, and Paprika

The main scripture is Psalm 100 Thanksgiving Greeting - one of the recent stamp releases by DRS Designs. 

Each leaf smells really good too!

I haven't been posting on my blog much lately.  So many life things going on.  Spending lots of time with family (it becomes even more important when you lose one of them and realize you should have spent more time with them soaking up even more love and stories) and trying to get our rental house ready to rent again (it has been storage for our Junque Booth for awhile).  Also some very exciting new things:

*Another Grandson on the way - that will make 3! We are planning the family football team now!
*I am practicing for our church Christmas Play - I am playing the Mom role and I am trying to remember all my lines which is not as easy as I had thought.
*I am on the SCS Dirty Dozen! What an honor!

Hope everything is going well for you. 



  1. Your card is beautiful with that verse, Nancy! And I want to eat those leaves as a Thanksgiving Day appetizer!! I'm sorry to hear you've had a loss in your family. I have been through that and agree with your thoughts. That's why I always end my posts with "life is too short." We just never know. Congratulations on the start of your Grandson League, lol, and for being on the SCS Dirty Dozen!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. A beautiful card Nancy, very clever colouring and fabulous CAS design.
    It sounds like you have lots of exciting things going on in your life at the moment - I hope the play goes well and your latest Grandson likes football when he arrives.
    Take care.

  3. Hello you :) Great card and a huge congrats on the Dirty Dozen!!! Three grandsons will definitely keep yo busy too LOL! Way to keep the priorities straight - live is so short and yes, spending time with family creating memories is worth more than anything. Have a fabulous Thanksgiving ((hugs))!!
