Sweet Wishes for Stefanie

My sweet niece Stefanie (and her husband Josh, of course) will soon be having a little one. Sweet little Logan is due in February. Josh is a big hunter so I wanted to make a card for next week's shower that incorporated camo in it. I love this little House Mouse image - I think every card I have made with it came out unbelievably cute.

This week's House Mouse and Friends Challenge (#110) is to make a card with something old and something new. My camo paper is new and my great nephew will be really new too. Also, the Twisted Sister Challenge is to make a card with something new but no pink (I cheated and used pink on a part of the pacifier).

I used the following on this card:
*House Mouse Monica with Pacifer Stamp
*Spellbinders Circle Die and Scalloped Circle Die
*Prima flowers
*Martha Stewart Branch Punch
*Marks Finest Papers - dark chocolate ribbon
*Stampin' UP! Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
*Hobby Lobby Paper Studio camo designer paper
*Glossy Accents
*Ranger Diamond Stickles
*Copic Markers

I get to make my favorite pimento cheese recipe for the shower next weekend. I will post a picture when I make the sandwiches for 80 next week. Here is my recipe:

1 cup of shredded cheddar
1 cup of shredded American Cheese (I like the kind that is not individually wrapped)
1/4 up shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1/2 teaspoon of Tabasco
large jar of chopped Pimentos, drained
3 eggs chopped
1/4 cup bacon bits
dash of sugar
Mix in enough mayonnaise to make the spread the consistency you like (I like Kraft for this recipe).

Hugz to all, but special hugz to Stefanie and Josh!

  4. Totally awesome. What a great card for a new baby boy, his parents are going to love it! The camo is great! Thanks for joining us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.


  5. I already commented on your adorable card on SCS, but I just had to visit your blog for that yummy recipe! Thanks!!

  6. I love the card and know that STef and Josh will too. It is adorable and as usual you did a great job with it. Love your cards and love you,

  7. How adorable, Nancy! I love that mouse with the HUGE pacifier. And, I bet that camo paper will be a huge hit with the dad-to-be.

    A recipe to get me into trouble. I made the peanut clusters after Emily Keaton left a recipe on her blog. I surely gained weight eating those yummies over Christmas. Thanks, though. This sounds great.

  8. Oh, this will be perfect for your niece, Nancy!! Totally fun for a hunting family. :D

  9. What a cute image and I love the foliage with the flower you created at the bottom. Fabulous card!

  10. Hi ya
    wow what a stunning card, awesome colouring, beautiful papers & embelies, thank you for joining us at House Mouse & Friends this week, sue,x

  11. This is adorable Nancy. It has a wonderful outdoorsy feel to it with the greenery and the Camouflage paper. My family is all hunters-so I "get it" How fun having a new baby soon in your family. Any news on the "wedding" colors??? lol Exciting times in your future I see. Have fun and enjoy every minute of the blessings!

  12. Wow. Love your house mouse card. I honestly thought that greenery was "real" or atleast a fake branch. I didn't know it was paper until I read your post... very pretty!

  13. Nancy, what a thoughtful, sweet way to include the 'hunter' in this baby card! I've never seen a camo baby card before! Maybe you'll be starting a trend. Who knows?

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
