The newest Can You Digi It? challenge is is Giving Thanks. The inspiraton board is incrediably fun:

I zeroed in on that turkey as I am seriously craving one of my hubby's fried turkeys! He does such a wonderful job with them and makes at least two every Thanksgiving so I always get plenty!

I used the fun new Betty Edwards Turkey image available at Can You Digi It? I realize now that I should have colored the garnish green so it doesn't look wilted, but I am going with this anyway as the friend I am sending it too will laugh even more because of the wilted garnish. My bg is a page out of a recipe book. For those of you who are wondering what the inside says...

"It is all about the best ingredients, a good recipe,
and just the right amount of time in the heat."

Hope you are all having a wonderful week! Hugz!


  1. Outstanding idea to use that cook book page as your backdrop. The wilted greens got a laugh from me because it reminded me of a Thanksgiving at our house many years ago when that actually happened. The twine is a great add on as I pictured your turkey legs being tied with that twine. A total winner. Enjoy your week.

  2. Fabulous card and such a great idea to use a page out of an old cookbook. I use old book pages, but didn't think about old cookbooks. Something else for me to start hoarding - I mean saving. :-P

  3. Love how you used a page from a cook book! Great BG for this turkey image. We enjoyed ours a few weeks ago (Canadian Thanksgiving is in October) and it was yummy :)

  4. Nancy,
    your card is absolutely wonderful! The inside sentiment is perfect! Whoever receives this awesome card will be doing a happy dance!

  5. This is a great card, what a good idea to use a recipe page for the base - I love the sepia colour.

  6. Hi Nancy! Sorry I haven't stopped by to visit mom passed away and things have been crazy. I'm now getting back info the swing of things so hopefully I won't be such a stranger. Great card...I can smell the turkey now...what time is!

  7. Nancy, this is wonderful. Love the cookbook page background, creative idea!!


  8. Such a great idea for the background - too clever!! Great card and such an apt sentiment :)

  9. Wonderful inside sentiment to go with your turkey. Your bg is perfect for this great card.

  10. You read my mind....yes I was wondering what it said What a great sentiment. This card is awesome for Thanksgiving. I love fried turkey too....yum. Super terrific card!

  11. This is such an awesome card! You used this image so well! Love it! :)

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
