Torn, Worn and Loved

Hello my name is Nancy, and I am a addicted to Snowmen. Isn't admitting addictions the first step in any rehabilation? Isn't this Dilly Beans Stressed Snowman Digi fun?

The Shakespeare quote is very thought-provoking to me. I am not sure which masterpiece it came from or the context it was written in, but I have had it in my quotes to use collection for awhile. It has so many possible meanings. It could be the Romeo and Julet kind of love or the love that God has for us (even though we say stupid, horrible, meaningless things, He still loves us with a real, true, and forgiving love). Ok, enough deep stuff!

Truth be known, this snowperson image represents how I feel most days since my medically induced menapause (or is this how everyone wlse feels around me? LOL).

I am entering this in the following challenges:

DillyBeans Designers and Friday Challenges
- Worn, Torn and Distressed
Pile It On - PIO#33 (Bingo - Ticket, image, faux sewing on the image)
Crafts and Me Challenge #96 - Use a Digi



  1. That poor little snowman looks like he has had a rough day LOL! I was close to that after spending a week in a 32' trailer with two adults and four kids while we went camping with friends!! Love the menopause comment - hang in there ((hugs))

  2. I love this Nancy, I agree with Marisa he does look like he has had a rough day lol
    Kevin xx

  3. This poor snowman does look like he's having a rough day, sort of how I think mine will be today as I'm moving my son back to college and his first apt). Wonderful thought provoking sentiment.

  4. Fab card Nancy! I love this "stressed out" snowman. Admitting that you have a problem IS the first step. I admit that I have a paper addiction but I don't know what to do next. Lol ~jeni :)

  5. Oh - ha ha - I got a kick out of your interpretation of the challenge "Distressed" - how clever!!!! Thanks for joining us at Dilly Beans. :)

  6. Great choice for the distressed challenge! Love that little guy and your quote - very apt to a whole load of situations :)

  7. LOL You're too funny. I came to see what was on your kitchen counter and found a snowman!!!! Now, you don't want to get over this's a good one. I am also addicted to those cuties. Guess you knew that. Love your funny post about your medically induced --pause. You crack me up. Great card!!!!!

  8. Your litle snowman looks frazzled. Love the color combo and the big red heart!!


  9. Hope it's ok to post this here Nancy. Since you are addicted to snowmen, you might find these freebies fun - keep scrolling as she has tonnes and tonnes of free images and quite a few snowmen :-) Hope you enjoy! (P.S. I'm not connected to her - I just found the blog through Free Digital Stamps)

  10. not only is this one of my ab fab fave Dilly Bean images, but you added a Shakespeare quote!!! can't get any better than that! :)
    so happy you have played along at Pile it On!

  11. Ha-menopause (the couple years when my husband said "yes, dear", "no, dear" stage) hahaha. This was me on Thursday when that crotchety old man I work with came to my office to yell at Gosh he needs to retire. This is just so fun and does really make me think of that day. I was so

  12. OMG this is just as cute as can be. I love the image and the sentiment is perfect!

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
