A Bit of Snow

The new Pattie's Creations Challenge #82 is SNOWY SCENE - WITHIN THE IMAGE. I used the Reindeer in Snow image from Pattie's Creations.

The image has snow within the scene, but I decided it needed to look like it was snowing too. I keep hearing about everyone that is getting snow and I am kind of jealous. We don't get much snow here - maybe a 1/2 inch to 2 inches all year and it typically melts immediately. I guess it is a good thing we don't get snow because no one around here can drive on ice or snow (including myself), and the counties and cities throw dirt on the ice and pray because they have no other resources. This just makes dirty ice and isn't much help. It is cold enough to snow this morning. Hubby is going out hunting and he told me he is too old for cold mornings - maybe the deer will have a bit of a chance today because he is bundled up heavily.

Dig out your snowy image and ideas and come join us!



  1. Nancy what a lovely card, I love how you have made it "snow" in your scene.. I like the snow when I am bundled up in the house watching movies with the hubby, but HATE driving in it, our drive is on a bank and I have slide down that drive every year into the garage door, really doesnt do the car good. I am kind of hoping the snow stays away until the 19th I finish work that day and dont go back until the 2nd so wont have to worry about it.. If I don't pop in before hope you have a great Christmas and all the best for 2014 xx

  2. What a wonderful scene you've created. LOVE your snow and those pretty deer. I'm surprised you get any snow, Nancy. But, it does snow there occasionally, I suppose. Dirt????? Yuck what a mess that must be.
    We're going to Franklin, TN tomorrow to 'Dickens of a Christmas, then to Gaylord in Nashville. It'll be fun and two of our little munchkins and their parents will be going with us. Sounds like fun. Hope you have a grand weekend.

  3. Lovely scene, Nancy. We don't get snow that often out here either. Too close to the water so when it does come it is a zoo in traffic, but the kids sure have fun LOL!

  4. Looks like reindeer lol sorry couldn't resist, gorgeous card Nancy, I like the scene and the snow

  5. This is cute scene but I'm glad you added your snow. It really does help with the delivery of this card. Your snowflakes are also a great little addition. Oh dirty ice, doesn't sound pretty at all. LOL Enjoy the weekend.

  6. The weatherman is telling us we're getting 4-7 inches tomorrow, hope not! Beautiful card and I really like that image. I love the snow!

  7. Love the added snow and the glittery sun. Fabulous looking card. We've already gotten a dusting, but it also included some ice. Glad I could stay home and craft instead of driving in it.

  8. This is a gorgeous card, I love your snowy scene with the adorable Reindeer.

  9. Oh Nancy! This is a perfect Christmas card! I love how you colored my image too...

  14. By the light of the Silvery Moon-that's the new name for this card. I love that sparkly moon in your snow scene-this is gorgeous. No snow here and definitely no sand on ice....that sounds really messy. Your card is just darling. My DH has not gotten a deer yet. Hasn't seen a thing. He still has the rest of the week.
    Bear Hugs,

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
