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.
    Bear Hugs,

  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!!

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

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

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
