Indian Summer

Can You Digi It?'s new challenge is Indian Summer and here is the inspiration board:


I love the colors of Indian Summer and Fall, and this year I am going to really celebrate them because this past Summer in Alabama was tough. I am praying for nice cool weather and a really cold Winter (at least cold enough and long enough to kill the bugs who are my evil nemesises).


I used Green Goddess Creations' Walk on the Wild Side paper pack and Zva Crystals which are both available in the CYDI? store. I changed the background colors on the papers in MS Word so that they would go with the theme. The leaves are cut out with Spellbinder Leaf Dies and the little branches were made with the Martha Stewart Branch Punch.

Before I close this post, I wanted to thank everyone who comments on my blog. You are all so wonderful and you make me feel so much more connected in the world of crafting and blogging. I appreciate your time because I know how valuable it is! I promised to give away blog candy to one of my followers who commented on my Fresh Brewed Designs blog hop post. The random number generator selected Kevin! Kevin, I will put your prize (some Antique Brads from SU!) in the mail this week.

Hugz to all!

  1. Ooh, Nancy..how cool are all those patterned leaves and I love the colored branches. Great card and soooooo pretty.
    Now, stop praying for a cold winter...I HATE cold. Even with the hot, hot, hot temps this summer, I loved the season. It is my favorite and I hate to see it go.
    Congrats to Kevin, also.

  4. Such a clever use of those great papers!! Love the idea of using animal prints and unusual colours for this theme :) Can't say I agree with wanting the cold to come though - I'm not a fan of the cold winter weather :(

  5. You always have such fun ideas, Nancy! I never would have thought to use animal print for leaves, but it SO works! :O)

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 Splitcoaststampers.com 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
