Birthday Humor

This week at Dude Time Doodles it is a fun inspirational challenge:

I used Mitch Magistrate for my card. I needed a birthday card for a friend at work, and I know he will love this image.

I love sentiments and often use them to add humor and fun to my cards. This week we are sponsored by TLC Creations and the challenge winner will receive a $10 certificate. I just discovered TLC Creations, and their stuff is AMAZING! They have any kind of sentiment you could think of - funny, sweet, touching, inspiring, current, vintage, etc. Here is a card I just made with their Leaves of Fall Sentiment set:

Hope you will join us in our Add a Sentiment challenge (remember your creation should be for a Dude).



  1. Mitch is terrific! Love the great background. Sweet worry card, love its simplicity!

  2. Brilliant! Fabulous colours and a perfect sentiment. Michelle x

  3. Mitch just scared me. I opened and the sentiment downloaded but there was an empty space where the front of the card should be, then suddenly Mitch popped up. It was quite a scare. LOL
    Your friend is sure to get a kick out of this fun card.

  4. Fantastic design! Love how his chin and finger are outside the box! Great looking card and I know your friend will love it too.

  5. Fabulous image and sentiment also. I know several guys that would love to receive that card. Great job.

  6. Brilliant cards Nancy, Mitch looks like he is coming out of the card, I like the sweet leaf card too.

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 Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
