A Sneak Peak

Today I am doing a sneak peak of one of the new images which will be available in the Squigglefly store tomorrow. The image is drawn by Cheryl Alger and is called Signs of Spring. I doubled the adorable image since I am sending this card to my niece who has twins.

I was inspired by two challenges when I made this card. One is the CCEE Stampers Challenge (CCEE1318) which is calling for shimmer. You can't see my shimmer too well but I used Spica pens all over the images and on the flowers and even on each little tip on my SB die cuts. IRL this is very shimmery. The other challenge is the Splitcoast Stampers Queen for the Day challenge #163 where Peggy (Jasonw1) is the Queen for the Day. I cased THIS card - but you would never know it! I have got to get some new dies - I love, love, love her card!

I am home this morning watching over my sweet husband Kenny who had some oral surgery yesterday. Poor thing - he is all groggy and in some pain. I am sure hoping he recovers fast since we have Crystal's wedding barrelling down on us fast!

Hugz to all and Happy Friday!

  10. I love this sweet card, Nancy. I think I commented on it on SCS. It is just perfect for twins.
    So sorry your hubby had to have oral surgery. That can't be fun. Hope he is better..FAST! Weddings don't wait.

  11. Hello Nancy :)
    I saw the group Punchiez email this morning, and it sounds like you are without any time to breathe! And what you need right now IS to breathe. :) So much excitement going on (well, poor Kenny's surgery is not exactly exciting)! Breathe, breathe, breathe.

    Or...make cards! I like the way you used your dies/punchez on this. I'll have to remember this combo of the lacy frame with tiny hydrangeas.

    You are in my thoughts, my friend! Good luck with everything, and tell Kenny I hope he feels better soon.

  12. Very descriptive article, I enjoyed that bit. Will there be a
    part 2?

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
