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

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
