Anniversary and Graduation Cards

It is make something with a pocket time at Squigglefly (SFS1913). I used the new A Time to Celebrate Image by Diane Carubia which is now available at Squigglefly. I made it so a little gift card could be tucked into it. This is an anniversary card for hubby - we have two anniversaries each year since we got married twice when we got married - once in April and once in June. We had planned and paid for the wedding in June but wanted to go on a trip to Las Vegas before our wedding so our preacher advised us we should get married before we traveled together alone. So we got married during Church Services before our planned wedding. We still went through the second wedding too since it had already been paid for (a little chapel in the mountains).

I also made another card with a pocket as well but I totally changed the image and was almost afraid to post it. My daughter Crystal graduates this month (and gets married - urghhh). I used the Graduating Girl image by Cheryl Alger (available at Squigglefly) and added more hair to her. Crystal has hair she can just about sit on and I wanted it to look more like her. In the process, I think I changed up the image a bit too much. I know she will love it so I had to share it. I am giving her more than $20 but that's all I had when I snapped the pictured - LOL!

Hugz to all!


  1. Saw on my blog roll you posted this morning....I was looking for pictures of the These cards are so cute. What a sweet story about you and your husband having two Weddings. You know I love those bears. Crystals graduation card is adorable. I would imagine after the wedding you were even lucky to have $ Hope your Mother's Day was wonderful.

  7. Nancy, I love both of your cards. The first one is so elegant and precious. I love the delicate little flowers and the touch of silver. Your second one is full of fun and I love how you personalized it. You did a really good job drawing the hair! Do I see a future digi artist in you?

  8. Nancy, Your anniversary story was sweet! Your anniversary card is so very adorable - just mademe smile! The card for your daughter's graduation is totally adorable - and I bet she will love it!

  9. Nancy, your family members are going to be very happy with their cards. The image in your first card is just precious and I love the flourish and flowers. Thanks for letting us in on the two wedding story. I think that is just terrific. We also changed our date of marriage because of a cruise we wanted to go on, however our first date had not been paid for so we just had the one wedding. It was the second wedding for both, so it was small, intimate and fabulous. Your daughter will love this card. Nice additions with the polka dots and the flowers. Sweet. They grow up so fast don't they? Enjoy the week ahead.

  10. Both great cards :) The anniversary one is adorably cute - 2 anniversaries sounds like a great idea! The grad card is awesome - love how you changed up the image to suit - fab idea!

  11. Nancy adorable card! love the bears and the soft colors and all the flowers-great all around!!

  12. Oh, Nancy, these two cards are wonderful - What a sweet story about your 2 weddings - and how funny, I did the same thing!! Bet Kenny loves this card!! He is such a big teddy bear!!!

    Crystal's card for her Graduation was made so perfectly, you would think that the image was drawn with her in mind - love how you added the roses and sparkly flourish!! Bet she keeps that one forever!!

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
