Some Chilled Drinks and Some Flowers

I found a new challenge yesterday (new to me) called Drunken Stampers. They pick movies as the challenge themes and this week is The Hangover (DSC#129). I am not sure if we are suppose to drink when we create (LOL) or not, but I did have at least 3 cups of coffee before I started this card (that is a lot for me). I have to also admit that I haven't seen this movie so I had to go watch some scenes on the internet and read some summaries before I started my card.

Anyway, I went with the party theme on my card since the movie appears to have a lot of partying in it, and I glitzed it up a bit with sparkle paper, Stickles, Spica pen on my bucket, and silver gems in the corner since the movie is set in Las Vegas. I used my new Doohickey dies to make the banner (love them) and an old DudeTime Doodles image (it is still one of my favs).

Fun challenge - can't wait to see what the next movie will be.

My last card for this morning is a case of Vicki (JustCrazy) for the Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS. Vicki's card (HERE) is so pretty! I changed the colors, layout, and a few other things. Had to do another Thank You card - I still have a zillion more to do for wedding and graduation presents (both kids had major events this month). I used several punches and dies in the making of this card: a Quickcutz die for the base die cut, MFT Dienamics Rolled Rose die for the flowers, MS pine branch punch, MS leaf punch for the flower arrangement, and SU! Butterfly Embosslet for the butterflies.

Hope your Sunday is going well!


  1. Love the flag pole with the banner sentiments on the first and looky at you rocking those rolled roses on the second!! You go girl! Lovely frame and neutral pallet with a pop of blue.

  2. Fantastic card!!! Thanks for playing along with the Hangover challenge at Drunken Stampers this week...glad you found us and hope you'll be back to play again!

  3. I've heard of this Drunken Stampers challenge and wondered if drinking was involved. LOL I would say the coffee certainly gave you an edge here. These are two great cards. I like the feel of the Hangover's card and your pennants are "special". Your second card is just as lovely as can be. I also adore that background paper and your die piece on there. I wish you are great Holiday weekend.

  4. Two wonderful cards Nancy, I like the bucket of beers with the flags, I like the colours the flowers and the ribbon on the second,

  5. Both cards are fantastic! Love the way the tags are hung on the first card! The flowers on the second are lovely!

  6. Both great cards! The first challenge sounds interesting. I'm not a drinker...(unless you count coffee) but I'm sure a lot of my crooked cards look like I was drinking when I made
    Your second card is very pretty!

  7. Your cards are always so beautiful! The ice bucket is such a clever idea for a card! The 2nd has some of the prettiest colors and flowers, and that ribbon is just dreamy! I hope you're enjoying your holiday weekend!

  8. How fun seeing an old DTD image. Still miss them. Love the colors of the second one - perfect for a thank you card.

  9. Awesome card, love it. Thanks for joining us at the Drunken Stampers for the Hangover challenge looking forward to seeing what you create next week.

  10. Very cool banner dies on your first card. I've never seen those. And, your thanks card is yummy. What a beauty you made.

  11. Naccy, I remember being so excited when I first found the Drunken Stampers too :) I find actual drinking normally interferes pretty badly with my! I am so thrilled you came to play with us - and you seriously rocked it your first time around! I love that fun image & oooooh, you love Paper Smooches too? Awesome!

  12. Fabulous cards Nancy! Love your coloring on the bucket-O-beer and that cool flag banner! So glad you found the Drunken Stampers blog and played along with the Hangover challenge! Hope that you get a chance to play the next challenge!

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
