One Hot Message

HDH133 is "Hot As Hell In Here!!" - these Haunted Design House Challenges get my Mojo flowing! I patterned this card after a sign on I-65 North towards Birmingham, Alabama. I have passed by it on my way to Birmingham 1,000 times, and it always makes me smile. Watch this amazing YouTube video and you can experience it too. I totally love this video!!!!

I used some clipart pictures and typed in my sentiment. I distressed my bg panel and burned my main panel with a candle - that was an experience. I kept praying my DH did not walk in because I think he is close to damanding I get an OSHA certification before I attempt additional creativity (I also cut myself making breakfast this morning). I coated my devil with some Glossy Accents, and I used some of the Blood Red Stickles on the flames and the Devil's eyes. IRL this looks amazing.

Another 5:00 AM card! Hope you all have a special day - don't forget to watch that YouTube Video I linked here - it is sooooo great. Hugz to all.


  1. Ha! I watched the video - too funny! Are those lights or cloven hooves on the top of the sign?
    Fabulous creation with the devil and the flames! LOVE those red sparkly eyes! I did all my burning while the husband was away. He's so afraid I'm going to burn the house down with all of my candles, he'd have had a fit to see me burning papers in the sink!
    Thanks for fanning the flames with us this week at HDH!

  2. LOL I watched the video too very very funny......FAB creation ..... love the burning edges and the burning eyes of your deveil. Thanks for sharing with us at Haunted Design House :)

  3. LOVE IT! LOL on the video. The music is great. Looks like something my MIL might have in her yard. Way cool card. Love the "devil" and flames. I can't believe you did your burning in the house. Would have been a rough wake up for hubby if sirens came screeching up. I'm so glad there's another pyro playng along. Thanks for sharingwith the Minions, and for the laugh. I'll be forwarding that vid to a few friends for sure. xxD

  4. I really like this card you created, and now I'm off to see the video! Sorry that you've been dealing with more than your share of woes lately, but hopefully everyone in your circle is going to move into the sunlight real soon! {{hugs}}

  5. Soooo funny on that video.... I thought they looked like hooves on the top too but it must be lights right ??!!!!!
    Fantastic card creation and I love the red glossy accents. So glad you did burn yourself doing it !! Thank you very much for sharing with us at Haunted Design House this week :-D xxxxxxxx

  6. Awesome card and love the. Video

  7. This is a great project, my mom would always tell us kids this, IMO my mom was a "Holly Roller" well sorta, She always dragged us kids to church. Or she would always go. I am going to go check out that vid. but wanted to tell you I think your project is great! And I totally understand your comment about OSHA and your DH that was funny! I am accident prone myself so I understand about when you burned some of your project for the effect, I might have lite myself up, so I just stayed w/ paper flames LOL! Stay crafty!

  8. Yep, Im back. Okay I watched the video. Is that the same one you see????

  9. If they are lights - then the designer had a great SOH. They do look like cloven hooves. You used your flames to good effect on this card. love the sheen and shimmer of the fire. Thank you for sharing this with us at Haunted Design House this week

  10. Oh how fun! I knew exactly where you meant as i"ve passed this sign coming from Montgomery to B'ham hundreds of times. Fantastic card!

  11. My gosh, know I've seen this sign a zillion times on my way to Montgomery. I didn't realize it was on YouTube..should have known. Your card is a good representation of it. Don't burn your house down!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Nancy, this is cute and oh, how true it is. I had to giggle about your OSHA certification.
    Too, funny.

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
