A fun birthday card I made really fast the other day. The paper and ribbon seem to make it. I used some packaging for cream to make the gold butterflies. Hope you have a wonderful Friday.



  1. So pretty, Nancy. The gold butterflies really pop against that dark paper.

    The snow came for a while but the flakes were so tiny I could hardly see them. Just a few miles away, it was really coming down from what I saw on the news. Shucks! I want a big snow. :-)

  2. Fabulous design and great paper choices. I can see how it would make itself.
    It took us 6 1/2 hours to come from Nashville to B'ham yesterday. Normally, it's a 3 hour drive. I almost typed in "tour" instead of drive as the Gilligan's Island song popped in my head :-). Cullman County was a nightmare to go through - lots of ice and snow and wrecks on I-65. Luckily we made it safely, but wouldn't want to drive through that stuff again.

  3. This is so sophisticated, Nancy, and I adore those lovely warm colors. A beautiful creation for this fine Friday! I hope you have a super weekend, my friend! :-)

  4. An elegant card. I have that designer paper, and you are right it's makes great cards...
    Thank you for the nice comments on my blog...In regard to my paper bag books. I find them to be very addicting, I want to make a couple more. I like the fact, that not only are they easy to make, they are also quite inexpensive too. I like your idea of putting recipes, etc. in the paper bag pockets. In fact, one of the friends that I gave the book to, is going to make one herself, and do just that...make it a recipe book with extra recipes in the pockets to pull out.

  5. Very elegant! Love that you let the beautiful DP do the work! Gorgeous card!

  6. Yummy paper and I just love the shape of your focal panel - not to mention the gold butterflies. Great card!

  7. Beautiful Card!! So glad to see your computer up and running again. Missed you :-)

  8. Gasp! Very elegant, Nancy. I love that paper. Have a good weekend!

  9. Another gorgeously elegant creation! Love how you're churning these fabulous creations out :)

  10. Beautiful card Nancy,I like the sentiment the paper and the butterflies, have a great weekend.

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
