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!

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
