Some Fun Cards

This week's Sassy Cheryl challenge is "Outdoor Fun and Games." I used this great Sassy Cheryl image which is only $1 in the store right now. I also used a cool card shape called the Layered Window Frame - HERE is the tutorial if you want to check it out.

I made this card for a friend at work who just lost her Grandmother. For my inspiration, I used THIS card by Sabrina (Cook22 on SCS). Sabrina is one of the Queens being revisited on the Queen for the Day challenge at SCS.

This card is my case of Sue (coffeestamper on SCS) who is also one of the Queens being revisited on . Sue loves caffeine so I couldn't resist doing a coffee card. HERE is Sue's card I cased.

Can you tell I woke up at 5:00 this morning? My friend Jill shared THIS great video this week and I am passing it on - you need to watch it and if you have seen it, you need to watch it again. It cracks me up every time I think about it!



  1. Five a.m. is too early, girl. Although, I was awake by 6:30 a.m. or before.

    What super cards! I love the window frame on your first card and the one honoring Sabrina is just beautiful. Yep, that caffeine is coffeestamper Sue for sure. Great houndstooth. She uses it quite often, too.

  2. Great card with Sassy Cheryl image. Love shape, window and sentiment.
    Thank you for joining us at Sassy Cheryl’s Outdoor fun & games Challenge, hope to see you again next week.

    Thanks for playing along in the Outdoor Fun & Games challenge this week with my Sassy Gals!!!

  8. Yep, that's me to a tee!!! Thank you for sharing that video-I laughed all the way through it. Now I know to blame my addiction on "YouTube". My husband is as much to blame because he is my enabler. That man asks me every week if I want to go to Michael's. Who am I to say no!!!! Last weekend he took me to Michael's, JoAnn's, and Hobby Lobby in one day!!! Oh my goodness that gave me an attitude adjustment this morning. Exactly what I need to put my big girl pants on and get me to Love that window frame card. I pinned it to my tutorials as I want to do that in the future. Your sympathy card is so elegant-love that embossing. Cute coffee card as well-love the paper.
    Bear Hugs,

  9. Beautiful cards, Nancy. What a video. Now that poor lady has no room to work on her craft table with all her new "stuff" from you tube. :)

  10. Loving all your gorgeous creations! That Sassy little gal is one of my all time faves! Beautiful work! I'm so glad you joined us this week for the Sassy Cheryl's challenge!

  11. OMG, a three-fer! You have been busy. Little girl at the beach is adorable.
    Love the little sentiment sign too. And what a great design!

    Your second card is stunning, your friend is going to be so appreciative that you
    thought of her with this beauty.

    Your coffee card is so darn cute, love the papers and colors you chose.

    Great work, Nancy, love them all.


  12. Nancy your cards are always inspiring. I love the work you put in to them. Never too much, always just enough to say "classy". The little Sassy gal is just beautiful. She looks like a picture of a little "Pawleys Island" girl. Love it.

  13. Ooops, I clicked publish before I thanked you for playing along with Sassy Cheryl. Always love your creations.

  14. All of these are amazing. Love your take on the layered window frame (so much better than the original). The second one is a fabulous monochromatic card and LOVE that background (is it a stamp or embossing folder?). And the color combo on the coffee card is a great combination.

  15. Wow, you have had a productive morning!! They all look great - the layered frame is fabulous, love the muted colours on the sympathy card and the coffee one is so much fun :)

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
