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.

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
