Some Ants and a Magnolia

I just had to use the Doodle Pantry images I won in the Pattie's Creation Blog Hop - the ants in this Kite Ant image are so cute! I used The CASE Study Challenge #138 as my inspiration. JJ Bolton is the April Muse and she is such an artist!

This card was made with the Doodle Pantry Movie Ants Image.

I also made something for the Pattie's Creations blog challenge - Anything but a Card - #66. I used Pattie's Magnolia image and printed it out an old poem and some fun new dp I bought at Hobby Lobby. The wavy cardboard on the tag is from some packaging I saved out of some Wedding presents my daughter Crystal has received.

Hope your weekend is going well!


  1. Goodness, you've been creating up a storm! Each one is fantastic but I love, love the ant cards! Such cute images!

  2. You've been busy - all fantastic cards and tags. The ants crack me up even though I'm allergic to them.

  3. Cute ant cards and just love the tag!! The corrugated paper and shape are fabulous as is the flower :)

  4. Love those Doodle Pantry ants! Have a few I need to color up myself. That double layer of clouds on the first card is so cool looking and your magnolia card is really lovely. Hugs!

  5. Nancy, busy girl! Love the ants, always getting in trouble. So darn cute and colored to perfection. Fun cards for adults and kids alike. Your magnolia card is gorgeous, love how you used left overs on it too.


  6. Those ants are great - love both of the cards with them, very stylish! The magnolia image is extremely striking and I love how you contrasted it with the corrugated card :)

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
