A Hunter and a Llama

It's our team's week off at Squigglefly, but the challenge this week is one of my favorite type of challenges in the world - masculine cards - so I had to jump right in and play too. The challenge (SFC2013) is called Man Up!, and the goal is to make some Father's Day cards for your Dad, Grandad, Brother, Hubby, etc. We all need more masculine cards so I made two (hope I can find them on Father's Day - I lost the one I made my Mom and still haven't found it - opps).

I made one for my Pop who is a giant hunter. I have never tried to color something camo - I love how it came out. Isn't this image cute? It is from Diane Carubia and is called A Hunting We Will Go. I am also entering this in the Punch challenge at Card Making Mamas.

Then I made one for my Hubby using the new Lynne Stansbery image called Llama Mama. It comes with some great sentiments, but I just had to make up this one for Kenny! My Mom laughed for a long time after she saw this llama and it cracks me up everytime I see it!

I had so much fun with these images - you can get them at Squigglefly along with a zillion other fun images.



  1. Both these images are so cute, and you did a great job with coloring them. I have to admit that masculine cards are probably my LEAST favorite card to make...but you sure know how to make a masculine card!!! Well done!

  2. These two are adorable. That llama looks about ready to spit LOL!

  3. Both are adorable but the llama justs makes me smile. Love his face and your sentiment with him.

  4. Ahh, what cute cards and such fun, fun images! Great job on the camo!

  5. Both of these cards are fantastic, maybe that's why you like masculine cards, because you do them so well. Both are wonderful images and colored to perfection.


  6. Bwhaaaaaaaaa...these are just the funniest and masculine, too. I love those images. Great job, Nancy!

  7. Did you come to my blog to try and get a peek at what I sent Sure as shooting, I didn't post it as I wanted you all to enjoy it in real life before I put it up. I can be really really Love these two masculine cards. I am not sure which one tickles me most. They sure are fun.
    Bear Hugs,

  8. Hi Nancy...Just wanted to say thanks for the kind words you left on my blog this morning! I know what you mean about life getting in the way of blogging. Love both of these cards. The image on the 1st is just way too cute and the sentiment on the 2nd is so funny!

  9. Wow, both those cards are just adorable. I am not sure which one I would give my dad, probably the 2nd one because it's too cute. He was a hunter though, so he might find the 1st one great for father's day. Thanks for playing in the Squigglefly Challenge this week. Great work!

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
