Words About Friends and a Toaster

I woke up early and made some cards - good thing since we lost power about 8:00 and just got it back in time to start lunch.

I visited the Can You Digi It? blog to see what my old friends were up to and noticed they are having a Sketch Challenge this week. I couldn't resist. My cool highway digi paper is from Green Goddess Creations and is available at Can You Digi It? My favorite song this week is The Highway Don't care sung by Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift and I thought some of the lyrics would go really well on this card:

After I made my first card, I dropped by Retro Sketch and Dilly Beans and couldn't resist playing along with them either. It is think pink at Dilly Beans and I cropped up this fun Amalia and Laylah image and the Retro Sketch this week is wonderful.

Next, I caught up on the Queen for the Day challenge (QFTD #162) at SCS where Jeanne S. is the Queen for the week. I looked through her gallery and found THIS cute card. I was going to favorite it and then realized I had already favorited it before - good to know I still have good taste! LOL! Love Jeanne's work! I used a fun Pattie's Creations toaster image since it was the closest I had to Jeanne's fun sliced bread image. My twine got a bit messed up in the picture taking - so just pretend it is straight when you look at it:

Now off to my Great Nephew's Birthday party for some great hugz and party food. Hope you are enjoying your weekend! Hugz!


  1. Sorry to hear you lost power, but glad you got a change to make some cards in the mean time. All of these cards are super nice but my favorite has to be your highway card. It's just lovely. Hope you have a fun time at the party and a good week ahead.

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 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
