Some Tea and Christmas Thoughts

This card was a case of PegMac71 at SCS who was named Queen For the Day this week. I was inspired by her lovely Enjoy the Season Cards. I kept her Tea theme, but changed up the sketch a tiny bit and added a few more layers. I am also entering this in the Pile It On (patterned paper) and the My Heart Pieces (layers) challenges. The image is from Pattie's Creations.

I love this darling Pattie's Creations Pattieboop and Allie Waiting For Santa image. I am entering this in the Pattie's Creations Challenge #52 - Embossing.

The other Day my friend Sue Worthington and I decided to buy exactly the same image at exactly the same time. We agreed to buy this darling Mo Manning image. The plan also includes doing a card and loading it before Monday at noon. I was inspired by the Featured Stamper at Splitcoast Stampers this week Angela R. I am entering this card in the Mo's Challenge DP2 #151 (Anything Goes) and the Creative Card Crew Challenge #18 (Christmas).



  1. WOW three outstanding cards. I love your "tea" card. That gorgeous cup looks like something my grandmother would have had in her kitchen. The doily seems to go perfect with it and I love all your little gems and papers. Just beautiful. Your second card is so very cute with your embossing and that adorable image. Your third card is just fabulous. Great idea with the three panels and your coloring on your image is spot on.

  2. I love all the three..beautiful cards..

  3. What a gorgeous trio of cards! I adore the first one--the doily is an amazing frame for your teacup!!! Gorgeous work! :)

  4. Loving the doily behind the tea cup on the first card - perfect for the card. The window you created on the second is adorable!! Love the touch of snow :) And loving the image on the last card - so precious and wonderfully coloured! Well done on all three cards :)

  5. I love your card layout it is beautiful. I especially love DP you choose for the image. The details are beautiful. Thanks so much for joining us at Mo's Digital Stamps.


  6. Wow, all three are absolutely gorgeous! Each one has wonderful details. So glad you joined us for the embossing challenge at Pattie's Creations! :-)

  7. Fabulous card for that yellow teacup, so pretty! All your cards are great, Nancy. Funny about the two of you getting that precious image at the same time. It made such a gorgeous card and the music bg is just perfect.
    Yes, you can have my stacked snowman card for Christmas if you like. It is a winner at CASology today. How exciting is that? Of course, if Pamzi finds out you asked for it, she'll be asking, too. LOL

  8. All three are great cards, Hard to pick a favorite, but I am always drawn to cards with teacups and teapots (Must be because of the SCS teapot I like how you did it in yellow. Stunning! The Christmas card is so lovely. Must go look at Sue's card too, TFS...Blessings, Jill

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
