College Memories

I am pretty sure you are wondering why this post is entitled College Memories but the card is of a wolf howling at the moon. I went to the University of New Mexico and our mascot is a Lobo (a type of wolf). I always think of my college days when I see a wolf - strange but true.

This week's mission at the Haunted Design House is to Case one of the very talented design team members (HDH131). When I saw that was the theme of the week, I was hoping they were going to go easy on us - they had other ideas! All the work was really detailed and very artistic - art gallery kind of stuff - not just level 10 - but level 11+. Since the rules actually suggested you could copy everything, I thought I might purchase Teri's Black Pearl digi (from her Digi Store Delicious Doodles Shop) and attempt to case her card; however, once I got into her digi store, I saw this wolf image and I had to have it. I popped up a couple of the snowy branches and the wolf since Teri did that on her card, and I added a computer generated sentiment that seemed to go with the image. I think I could do more cards with this image about nature and with some poetry - can't wait to make more. Sue Worthington (IrishGreenSue on SCS) sent me the silver swirls and snowflakes in a RAK that arrived just yesterday (I thought the swirls kind of had the same effect as mermaid tail on Teri's card), so I placed them on the card. Lastly, I addded a black feather since Teri's card also had one.

Fun card. I am giving it to a friend at work who seriously wants to scream right now (she is having some pretty major life struggles). I know this will make her laugh.

Hugs to all!


  1. I love this card,I love wolf's I like the colours the swirls and the feather.

  2. I think this card is amazing!
    I changed it up a tab bit, and now you can just be inspired by a Minion, but your project must reflect theirs in some way. Just make it obvious who you are CASEing.
    Hope this helps, and I can't wait to see what else you come up with.

  3. This is one gorgeous card and Teri has some amazing digis, you have seriously done some brilliant work with this one. Thanks for sharing with us at Haunted Design HOuse xx

  4. The wolf image is fabulous. What a perfect card for your co-worker and bless you for bringing a smile to her face as well as encouragement.

  5. Cute card with a fun sentiment. I think I could use that card right're in the midst of remodeling...need I say more...LOL

  6. a fabulous card and I'm sure your friend will adore it. Teri's images are amazing to work with, aren't they.

  7. This is a very creative and wonderful way to CASE. Your card is brilliant. thanks for joining us for MM at HDH. xxD

  8. You're so creative, Nancy. Love your card to give a co-worker some cheer in her life. Yes, I could scream are here working at my house. Hate that! Actually, I'm having a new heating/cooling unit installed...big bucks. Now, wouldn't it be more fun to spend that money on craft supplies? See why I could scream loudly?????? LOL

  9. Beautiful card! I'm sure Teri will love your interpretation of her card :)

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 Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

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
