Two Cases with Asha with Friends

I was looking through the Whimsy Stamps site last week and ran across this adorable image from Lia Stampz called Asha with Friends. One look at these faces and I had to order it! I used it with one of the wonderful sentiments it comes with to make this The Case Study card:

The Muse for The Case Study Challenge #116 is Angeline Yong. What a great artist and a super fun creation to case. I was inspired by the shading on the paper and the simplicity of her design. I didn't do her card justice, but it inspired me in many ways.

Then I used the image to add more "whimsy" to this case of LaLatty (Patty) on SCS; she is the Featured stamper of the week (FS301) and to see the card I cased click HERE.

Patty also has a wonderful style and was super fun to case.

Love this Lia Stampz image available at Whimsy Stamps. Fun, Fun, Fun.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!



  1. Nancy, I see why you wanted that image. Just so adorable and a great way to appreciate a friend. Wonderful cards.

  5. Perfect stamp for a card you want to make for a friend :) Well done!

  6. That looks like pure joy on the hug givers face...not so sure about the receiving end...but hey you can't fault her exhuberance! It's pure jubilation. Super cute cards Nancy and I sure do love that sentiment. I know why Benzi up there is unhappy!!! I watched that game and felt her pain every quarter that went by in the game!!!! On a happy Gator's won!!!
    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
