Some Hugs and a Few 'Flies

Can you ever have enough "I am thinking of you" cards? I love this sentiment stamp from SU! Makes me feel warm inside every time I see it. All my supplies are SU! other than the Sizzix tag die and Walmart wired ribbon leftover from Christmas.

Wow moving from a laptop to a desktop really magnifies the flaws in my cards and photography!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week - there is a chance of a few snow flakes here in Middle Alabama. That is a rare occasion so everyone is either excited or freaking out (even me - LOL - I just don't know which one to do). A few days ago it was in the 70s so we are a mixed up bunch.



  1. Wonderful card to remind someone you care! Hope you get a little snow, enjoy!

  2. Just glad you're getting to upload this pretty card, Nancy. You've had too much puter trouble. You better not get snow and the people in North AL be left out. I don't think I'll see a flake...just more rain. We've had 13 inches and maybe a little more since the middle of December. We're close to needing an ark. I'll be checking the windows for a flake to fall. LOL

  3. Wonderful card. Love the argyle background. Glad you've got a computer to use, even if it's a desktop :-). I hope the snow waits till I get back to AL before starting - hate driving in it

  4. This is gorgeous Nancy, I like the backing paper the tag and the butterflies.

  5. This is so classy, Nancy! I really like that argyle patterned paper. Looks like you got a work out punching those butterflies!

  6. Love this!! The yellow and grey colour combo - check, the butterfly - check, the sentiment - check. It just works so beautifully together :)

  7. Pretty, I like the designer paper you used, and the color combo!

  8. My kitchen is the heart of my home. This is where my family gathers. It lives with my kids running around fighting for the last cookie! I want it stylish because we spend so much time here. Getting Quartz Kitchen Countertop was the cherry on the cake. I love it!

  9. What flaws? I don't see them! I had some of this paper, I think. It's Stamping Up, right? Love the cluster of butterflies. :)

  10. Bust me up girl....what are you talking about "flaws"???? Your cards do not look any different to me. We are most critical of ourselves sometimes to the point of taking away are creativity!!! Make what you love, love what you make. This is so pretty. I love that paper and the embossed butterflies are perfect.
    Bear Hugs,

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
