Some Strawberries

Don't these strawberries look yummy? I love this Pattie's Creations Image - darn that Anne Temple for getting me addicted to yet another artist (by the way Patty is having a big sale starting tommorrow)! My card is going to last week's destination station at the Teapot Tuesday Challenge on SCS; a sweet little boy who is fighting some major challenges and loves strawberry milkshakes (I think I got that right). I know this card does not look the least bit like a card for a young man, but I am fixing that with goodies designed exactly for one like a potato gun and some plastic bugs. I am entering this card in the Perfect Sentiments Challenge because I just love the sentiment I typed and it is Anything Goes in that challenge (PSC47 - Anything Goes with a Sentiment).

Hope your day is filled with something wonderful - maybe even a strawberry milkshake.



  1. Gorgeous card Nancy, I like the image the colours and the sentiment.

  2. Terrific card. Yes those strawberries look delish. I love your highlight marks which makes them look so lifelike. I also like your punch and doily. Have a great day.

  3. Fantastic card and I love that sentiment and the way you highlighted specific words. I had to laugh while reading though because just as I was thinking how you must really like Pattie's images, I found out I'm to blame :0). I'm an excellent enabler. I think the little boy will love your card too!

  4. Nancy, how pretty you colored those strawberries. That is a great image and a perfect sentiment for this little boy. He is sure to love your card and those goodies.

  5. love your project thanks for joining our anything goes challenge at the perfect sentiment.

  6. That sentiment is too fun :) Lucky for me I'm not much into sweets so I'm quite safe LOL! Mind you I could eat that whole lot of strawberries in one sitting :)

  7. Such a great card (even though I must have some strawberries now!) - great colouring and I love the way you highlighted some of the words :)

  8. Oh this is gorgeous Nancy. You have coloured those strawberries to perfection, good enough to eat! Love the sentiment too. Michelle x

  9. This is so fabulous, I love strawberries!

  10. Such a cute card. I know that it will bring a smile to his face. Thanks for joining us at Perfect Sentiment. Hope to see you back again.

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
