Computer Vacation Creations

My laptop is still sick, but I drug the desktop out of "storage" because I just can't stand it any longer. Maybe Kenny will take a day or two out of his busy hunting season and take the laptop to the doctor (one of his friends). If not, I am going to have to resort to Geek Squad - LOL. While I have been off-line, I have made a lot of cards. Here are a few:

Made one of these for a friend at work whose husband is going to long-term rehab due to some serious health issues that totally came out of the blue and I gave the other to my sweet Mom to send. Mom sends lots of cards. She makes most herself, but she always uses any I give her too. She loved this one so much she copied it and made some like it. How fun to be cased by your Mother. The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread and most the paper is from SU!.

This was the birthday card I made my Mother for her 77th Birthday. She has always reminded me of Audrey. I love this image from LilyPink Designs (available at Can You Digi It?). I used SU! Dazzling Details to add sparkle to her lips and hair. Mom loved it.

I shopped the clearance rack at SU! and found this beautiful paper really cheap. I have made a bunch of cards with it and they all came out beautiful. I got the idea for this one out of the 2012/13 SU! catalog since I couldn't get inspiration on line.

I have missed you and will make it over to visit you this week - I promise!


  1. I hope your lap top is better soon, there is nothing worse and you realize just how much you rely on them. At least you have more time to make your wonderful cards. The Audrey card is very Hollywood.

  2. What a wonderful mix of cards. Love the iron gate border around the sentiment on the first ones and the torn paper and colour combo. What a fun, glamorous second card with the touches of sparkle being perfect. Great snag on the paper and loving the monochromoatic tones of brown. Fingers crossed for the computer. It it doesn't work, try pointing one of hubby's shot guns at him to see if it gets him moving over to his friend's house wink, wink LOL!

  3. A wonderful collection of cards. Really love the first one with the framing, torn paper effect and the lovely sentiment. The second is very glamorous with lovely touches of sparkle. The buttons look fab on the last one.
    Sorry to hear about your laptop. When mine was out of action it was not good, felt like my arm had been chopped off. I am so reliant on it. Hope you get it sorted soon.

  4. Fantastic collection of cards! Sorry to hear your computer still is not working, hope they are able to fix it soon for you!

  5. Nancy, I LOVE that first card and it reminds me of the song, The Anchor Holds. I think I'll have to go online and listen to it. It is a super song.
    Your Mom's card is so pretty and I'm thinking she loved it even more that it came from you. It's so wonderful that you can share a hobby.
    Your button card is beautiful, too.
    Oh, that computer.....hide Kenny's hunting guns until that puter gets fixed. LOL

  6. So sorry your computer is still sick :-( Don't know what I'd do without mine. LOVE all your cards.

  7. I'm so glad you are back online again, Nancy, even if it is a band-aid fix. Looks like you have been busy. Your anchor cards are my favorite! Nautical things are really hot right now :-)

  8. Hope you get your computer woes sorted out very soon! Love the cards -bet you can't get which one I love the most!!! :)

  9. Welcome back - I've missed you. I know this is a temporary fix, but at least we get to see some of your wonderful creations. I love all of your cards - the first set is just beautiful. Wow, what an inspiration to be able to share the art of stamping with your Mom. And the second card is gorgeous!! Such a beautiful creation! Love your Happy Birthday card with the fab find paper - it's really pretty too!! Isn't it strange going to a paper catalog for inspiration? But hey, whatever it takes, right? And more importantly it worked!!! Hope everything is back to normal soon. Sending you and your computer HUGE HUGS!!!
    And Blessings,

  10. I don't know how it has happened but I seem to have missed some of your wonderful creations, I love this one, I like the doily with the buttons and the punch work.

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
