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.

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
