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.

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
