A Sparkly Horse and a Camo Flower

The CAS challenge on SCS is celebrating its 200th challenge with a big birthday celebration during December. There are lots of challenges that posted this weekend and they run through December. Challenge C is to use the Dazzing Diamond Dust technique. I couldn't get get to my Embossing supplies due to the continued remodeling in my craft room, so I had to cheat and use glossy accents and some Dazzling Diamond Dust. If you are interested in joining the challenge here is the link and the code: CAS200PARTYC.

I used my very favorite stamp set from SU!, Wild Wild West. It retired several years ago and I totally love it. I needed a birthday card for my niece, Holly. She loves horses so I focused just on the horse in the canyon scene. I had to cut out DA MAN, but he can't ge the star all the time - LOL!

This card was done for the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS. This week's Featured Stamper is Mayodino. I cased her card here. This is for my husband's birthday so I used the sleeve off one of his hunting shirts (he cut it off not me so don't worry). I know he is going to laugh hysterically when he gets this. I used the Tattered Flowers die from Tim Holtz to make the flower.

Have to run do some cleaning which I have been neglecting. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by and many Hugz!


  1. Two beauties, Nancy :) Love the negative in the star (sparkly cowboy for Mz. Pamzi by any chance LOL!) and love all the woodgrain on the second. Lovely bow and flower too!

  2. Great cards! Inspired choice to use your hubby's recycled clothing and it looks fantastic :)

  3. How lovely and rustic these are, Miss Nancy! I like the bold plaid ribbon on the first one...goes well with the horsies.

  4. Both cards are beautiful Nancy, I like the horse and the ribbon, the cut out and wood look on the second card.

  5. Two outstanding cards. I agree that the man doesn't always need to be the star. Love that big ribbon. Your husbands cards is a keeper that's for sure. You'll have to let us know what he says about it, if he can stop laughing that is.

  6. Beautiful cards! Love the gorgeous ribbon you used!

  7. Both cards are so nicely done. You are so fortunate to have that fantastic stamp...great job using it. I've never seen a card made with that stamp that I did not like it...and yours is great too.

  8. Both are gorgeous! Love how you focused on the horse with a star and the shirt flower is fantastic.

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
