A card from Last Week!

This card was made for the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge last week - I just didn't have time to load it. Last week was a blur! I worked late most days trying to finish up work before a deadline and tried to get some last minute shopping done. I can't wait until I can drive again!!!

I love to do the ODBD challenges - they seem to inspire me so easily. I love white with a touch of color (that was from the Twisted Sister Challenge last week - those girls are so fun).

The card did receive a tip of the hat in the challenge. Can't wait until next week's challenge.

Merry Christmas to all! In all this hustle and bustle - may you see the true gifts of Christmas: God's true and pure love for us all, the delight in a child's eye (even if the child is 60 years old), the warmth of a real hug, the touch of a friend (even if it is an on-line touch), the comfort of a warm hug and a wonderful meal, and the unseen richness of true freedom (of religion, of decision-making, of movement, from fear, etc).

Hugz to all!!!


  1. This is gorgeous! Christmas blessings to you and your family (((hugz)))

  2. Merry Christmas to you, my cyber friend for now! But one glorious day...

    Your card is wisdom for this day, this week, this year.

    May you find rest, Nancy in family, friends, and artful pursuits.

    Blessings in the coming new year.


  3. Merry Christmas from our house to yours. I am so glad that you and Crystal are still enjoying the Church card. You make me laugh girl-you "can" make cards just like me. I have the hydrangea card that you sent me for my birthday and that is exactly like the cards I make!!! Look at this card!!! WOW it is just gorgeous. I stopped in my tracks when I saw it posted on SCS. The flowers and embossing are just exquisite. Love the sentiment-so true.

    And another thing you are not a bad friend. Today I a feeling great-it was the shot I got on Tuesday to get rid of this. I think it was residual from when I was sick in Nov. I had to get an anti-biotic for a bacterial infection this time instead of viral.

    Enjoy your day with your family. Mine is fantastic. Waiting for Wesley and Jessica to come back from her parents house so we can all enjoy the Packer Game tonight.

  4. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas...the best in 2012! I'll be back after the 1st of the year to see what you've been up to!

  5. This is absolutely stunning. I love a card with the sentiment as the focal point, and the flowers and bee are wonderful. Happy New Year and best wishes for a happy healthy 2012.


  6. Nancy, I sure hope you had a wonderful Christmas (hope you're still enjoying the 'tree' card. Or, has Pamzi slipped in and taken it? Wouldn't surprise me. LOL Your card is such a beauty and I love your post...lovely reading. Hope you are having a wonderful New Year's Eve. Hubby and I are staying boring. We went out last night to a nice restaurant and should have waited. Oh, well.......
    Hugz my friend.

  7. Oh, Nancy, I LOVE this! ONe of of my faves of yours, that's for sure.

    Hope you had a chance to really enjoy your holidays. :)

  8. Gorgeous card. Love the tone on tone. Great sentiment and pretty flowers.

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
