A CAS Christmas Card

Today starts the newest Can You Digi It? Challenge and it is "Clean and Simple."

I use to run when someone said CAS, but now I love it. It is a challenge for me though as I love me some layers and paper and embellishments. CAS is super easy when you have a great image and some awesome paper which I just happened to have.

I used one of the Christmas Ornaments out of the LilyPink Christmas Baubles set and layered it on top of some of my favorite Walk on the Wild Side Digi Paper from Green Goddess Creations. To make the circles pop a bit, I colored them with a light Copic Marker and then I covered the outline of one of the circles with some Zva Crystals out of the Crystal Wheel which is still unbelivably priced at $3.50 for a ton of crystals in various colors.

I still have a bunch of Christmas cards to finish up so I totally love this challenge! I need a few birthday cards as well so I may make this a CAS weekend coming up.

If you are celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope your plans are all falling into place and things are going well. I am so looking forward to some Fried Turkey!



  1. What a cool ornament, Nancy. I do love CAS cards and they're so fun to make.

  2. Oh, back to say things really turned around over the weekend..Roll Tide! We have given away our Iron Bowl tickets...won't be able to attend. Hope things go well for my side. Ha

  4. Nancy,
    Can I just say I love, love this ornament!! I think there is a bit of "walk on the wild side" in all of us. I love the pretty DP you've used and how you embellished the DP as well! Beautiful and elegant card!

  7. Very funky! Once again, thanks for bringing out the best of my digis :) Would never have thought to use that great paper for this image but it looks amazing!

  8. How cute this is. You know this is very popular here in SE GA and NE Fl due to the Jacksonville Jaguars. We love our animal print here. This is just so fun and fabulous. Let me take this opportunity before I get wrapped up in the Holiday festivites to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. When I count my blessings I count our friendship as something to be so thankful for. Love you!
    Bear Hugs,

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
