Barnes & Nobles Inspired Christmas

This week my doctor limited me to one caffeine drink a day so when today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS was Barnes & Nobles, I was lead to the drinks of course! Here is the picture that inspired my card:

and here is my card:

This is a peak at the new Diana Garrison Christmas Angel image available in the Squigglefly store today. I love this image because it reminds me of the Mexican/Indian art I grew up with in New Mexico.

Happy Saturday! Hugz!


  1. Beautiful card Nancy, the background is gorgeous!

  2. Great use of the insp. picture. Great colour combo too :)

  3. Super nice card with this beautiful angel. The turquoise color really reminds my of the Indian art, which I love. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. Very nice :) Lovely colours - so nice to see something in different colours for a holiday card.

  5. Oh, what a beautiful angel you've popped up on your card. Beautiful work AND card. For some reason, I'm now thinking of turquoise jewelry. Ha

  8. Nancy, what a great take on the colors and what a beautifully ARTSY card!


  9. This is just stunning Nancy! I really like the texture in the sky and on her gown. The distressed edges are a great touch too, and of course it's wonderful how you have the other angel popped up!

  10. Just beautiful. I am trying to figure out the Angel embellishment as that design feature has me so intrigued. This is just stunning and I love how you have that Angel looking into the focal point. Its so unique.
    Bear Hugs,

  11. Simply beautiful. Love the angel in the background too.

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

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

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?
