A Bunch of CAS Cards and a Gift

This lovely beauty arrived in the mail this last week.  It is a kitchen towel and card made by Ann Merry.  Ann is so talented and I covet her kitchen towels.  She has sent me one every year for the last three years and I love every one of them!  Isn't the card cute too?  She is amazing!

I was talking on the phone with Sue Worthington (IrishGreenSue on SCS)  last night and I made a bunch of cards while I was talking to her.  I think we were on the phone an hour, but for some reason she inspired me.  My neck still hurts this morning!  Thanks for the Inspiration Sue!!!  Here are the cards I made yesterday (warning - there are a lot of them!). 

Here is another....

And another.....

And another....

And another....

And this one I made in the morning...

I actually made several more, but I am running out of time this morning - got to get ready for work.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  I will be making cards can you believe it?




  1. You are giving that ornament punch a work out LOL! Great mix of cards using it! Think the first one is my favorite - loved the punched out image, the musical score and the darling bows you added.

  2. Aren't you a fortunate person to be receiving this pretty towel..and a pretty card, too? Very sweet person, I'd say.

    Your cards are super. I didn't see the gorgeous, purple one on SCS and I LOVE that color and it is so elegant and royal looking.

  3. Beautiful cards! And that towel is so nice, my sister does machine embroidery and makes lovely things. So many cards, I'm jealous....


  4. Wow, did you do all of these in an hour? They are all awesome and all have their own special appeal. You accomplished so much. Beautifully done. I love you towel too. So much pretty details on it. You can't beat a pumpkin and pumpkin pie image.

  5. I just love what you have done with the ornament dies. Going to use that idea in the future! Now I am inspired. (she types just before she rushes off to her studio) tfs!!!!!

  6. well, well, Nancy, just look where the muse took you and these lovely Christmas cards. Since purple is my very favorite color, I'd have to say it is my favorite, too.

    I had a peak at SARK's books over at the ' wonderfully inspiring...loved the titles. And definitely on my list to peruse at my favorite thrift...

  7. Ooooh these are GORGEOUS! I love your style...I'm a new follower and will be visiting you often. Thanks so much for the comment on my blog!

  8. Bless your heart for being able to talk on the phone and do something else at the same time! I have a feeble brain, unable to do that. And I definitely can't craft while drinking wine; I lose all focus and creativity!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
