A Masculine Easter Card and some Gluttony






This card is for two challenges: IC382 on Splitcoast Stampers and Pattie's Creations Blog - Challenge #64 Easter. On SCS, the inspiration site is called Eglantyne Shop - click here to see my inspiration picture. I used a lovely sewing box as my inspiration for the coloring on the basket and for the fun embees at the bottom. At Pattie's Creations, the theme is Easter; there were no rules about having to use a traditional Easter image so I felt free to use this super fun fishing image that I received in a past PC challenge (it is one of my favorites). It has been so long since I was able to do these two challenges, and I had to wake up this morning at 5:00 to have time. I felt like I was visiting old friends. Yay for three day weekends!

This card is the Easter Card I am giving my sweet husband. I am going to tuck a Bass Pro Shop Gift card inside. He deserves it for all the errands he ran yesterday to help us finish up the wedding invitations for sweet Crystal. If all goes well they should be in the mail on Monday, and then we can start focusing on all the other 42,000 things we have to do before May 11th.

Since I had a bit of time this morning, I also did a card for the Haunted Design House challenge (HDH163) - it has been ages since I participated in that one. This week's challenge is the levels of Hell in Dante's The Divine Comedy. I chose level three: Gluttony. I know this is a bit tame for an HDH card, but you have to admit that this image is the epidome of Gluttony (plus it totally makes me smile)! The image is from Squigglefly and is done by Lynne Stansbery - it is called Dad's Food Moment. Since I have been dieting since January 1st, this inspires me.




Now we are off to the Wedding Dress Fitting in Birmingham today! Fun, Fun, Fun.

Hugz!

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 Splitcoaststampers.com 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
