Squigglefly Fever

Fun, fun, fun. I am one of the newest Squigglefly DT members - how fun is that! I have always loved the place with all the zillions of image choices.

This past week someone sent me an email that had some precious pictures of older people having fun and one of the sayings was: "put a twinkle in your wrinkle." I vowed to make a card with that saying the minute I read it. I found this unbelievably fun Lynne Stansbery Image called Smile Pretty. Used some glossy accents on those glasses. This card so makes me smile!

I also made a card for last week's Teapot Tuesday Challenge on SCS - the challenge was to do a card with Harley's or Americana or both. I used the American Pie image by Cheryl Alger. I stretched the pie out to make the star look more even but it looks so much more fun when it is a mile high like it was drawn.

The card is going in the mail to someone who needs a bit of encouragement due to some serious health issues. Inside it says:"and chocolate, key lime, lemon, pecan, chocolate pecan, pumpkin, cherry cream cheese, sweet potato, or any other kind of pie you like!"

Hope you all had a great weekend and that this week is full of many blessings!

  7. I knew you would have something on your kitchen counter today. And, what a fun card with the first one. That sentiment is perfect for the old man.

    Love your next card and I'm sure it will be a bright spot in the recipient's day.

    I see you have some good new to share, too. A BIG congrats on your new DT position. You'll wow them, that's for sure.

  8. So wonderful to have you join our happy Squigglefly family! I know what you create will always be wonderful such as the two great cards today! The sentiments for both are perfect and I might have to CAS!

  9. Congrats on your new dt! How exciting! I can't wait to see what all you do with all their images - you're off to a fantastic start. Love both of these cards and the sentiments on each. The pie one should definitely cheer up your friend.

  10. So happy you are on the Squigglefly team. What fun. Yikes, does Kenny know you have a man on your kitchen counter today? :) I love this card, it is cute and you have colored it wonderfully. I like the pie card, too, I will take a piece of each flavor, please.

  11. Nancy your cards are wonderful! I really love the sentiment you used the Smile Pretty image - it's perfect and makes me smile! The glossy accents on the glasses is great too. Super coloring! Your pie card is such a great choice for the teaparty recipient! I love what you put on the inside of the card too. Everyone at Squigglefly is so thrilled to have you join us!

  12. Such great cards, Nancy! I love the first because he is so funny! And the second for that fab layout and use of papers!

  13. Beautiful cards Nancy!! Love the twinkle in your whiskers card - your coloring on the elderly gent there is perfection, and I love the sentiment too. Also loved the apple pie card - beautiful design and wonderful sentiment - inside and out!

  14. Oh my gosh, Nancy, like you are running on all cylinders here! - Congrats on the Squigglefly DT - you have so many wonderful and off the wall ideas - I am always so pleasantly surprised by your wonderful cards.

    The older gent is the perfect subject for this sentiment you found and I love how you framed him out - the Americana card from last week's teaparty I missed, sad to say, but it is Americana and tradition at its best, for sure! Love the checkered and red and blue BG and your rusty star is a great embellishment! A very sweet card to lift someone's spirits!! Sending lots of hugs - yes, I finally made it here!!

  15. Look at you, Miss Squigglefly! Congrats! These images are different and interesting. Love the old dude and the way you've framed him.

  16. Hey, congrats on the DT!! Looking forward to seeing what you do :)
    love both cards - the sentiment goes perfectly with the image on the first one and the American feel to the second card is fabulous!

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
