Humble Pie

This week's Featured Stamper at Splitcoast Stampers is Cynthia (aka StampinAK)and you can click here to see the card I cased from her blog. Cynthia did the card for the last Can You Digi It? Challenge. I loved the sketch and her use of super fun papers. I actually was going to use a dog image, but... you know how that often goes.

Unfortunately, I needed an "I am sorry" card today. The recipient loves bees so I thought the use of the lovely bee paper from Prima would help me get back in her good graces. Actually, she forgave me in less than 5 minutes, but I thought I would send a card anyway. The bowl full of pie ingredients is from Clear Stamps by The Paper Studio (was the closest I had to a pie image).

I am also entering this card in the Ribbon Carousel RCC61 challenge (Buttons and Bows) and the Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude Challenge #18 (Anything goes).

Hugz to all!


  1. Love these soft colors and what a nice way to say I'm sorry.

  2. Love this layout, Nancy!! Great case!

  3. Good for you for reaching out to say sorry :) Love the humble pie sentiment - yeah, I eat that myself LOL! Darling card and glad things are forgiven and you are able to carry on :)

  4. Fun card and great color! Pie always has to start with the dough!

  5. Very sweet of you to make this card and glad things have worked out well. Your card is so cute and I love the bee brad.

  6. What a cute card and how sweet of you to go the extra mile making this card when you are already forgiven. I love the humble pie sentiment, I have not heard that saying in a long time.

  7. Lovely wee card and the bee is really cute.
    Thanks for joining us over on Fat Pages With Attitude.
    Hugs Alison x x

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

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

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
