A Cool Winter Scene

It's only a few more months before Winter is here, and I am counting down the days already! Since I am so looking forward to Winter, I chose this beautiful Snow Birds Birdhouse image from Pattie's Creations for the new Anything Goes Challenge at Pattie's Creations.

I think this is my new favorite Pattie's Creation image - the birds were so fun to color!

The challenge will run for 2 weeks and remember there is a prize for the entries not using a Pattie's Creation's image and one for the entries using a Pattie's Creations image. Be sure and check it out.

I am also entering this card in the Crafty Boots Challenge which is Christmas in August - how fun is that!

Hugz - cool ones if you are wishing for cooler weather and warm ones if not!


  1. What a cool sketch for this gorgeous image, Nancy. I love the sparkle in the snow. Super creation! For me, snow is the only thing I like about winter and guess who doesn't get much most winters...if any? LOL
    Have a fabulous weekend.

  2. Fabulous card and such a cool design. Love the patterned papers you chose and the glittery snow on the image.

  3. So very pretty! Love your touches of snow and glitter here! TFS! HUGS :)

  4. how nicely you have drawn and colored the bird on the top, certainly the bird is feeling the cold but i guess is contemplating focusedly on something...where the cold is not able to reach n distract the bird..i loved this beautiful car

  10. Nancy, I love your card - those birds are so pretty! Now I'm not a huge fan of winter...but then I'm lucky to walk upright on dry ground much less add snow and ice to the mix. :)

  11. I must admit, I like fall & winter better than summer, but I still enjoy all 4 seasons! This is the cutest birdhouse, and I love the snow you added!

  12. Beautiful card Nancy, I like the bird sitting on top of his house the papers and the layers.

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
