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.

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 Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
