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!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

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
