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?

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
