Some Hearts and a Kitty

There is so much snow and ice here in Central Alabama that I couldn't go into work. I almost didn't make it home yesterday - my normal 30-40 minute drive took 2.5 hours as several bridges closed down and we had to turn and go another way. Today, I am catching up on a few comments and challenges.

This week's Squigglefly challenge (SFC0414) is "Have a Heart" - use a heart on your creation. It is our team's week off but I just had to play in this one as Valentine's Day is moving fast and I need some more cards. I used the very adorable Kitten image by Enid Barnes and a cute sentiment by Lynne Stansbery which can be found in her I Miss You set (it also has a kitten in it). Both sets are available at Squigglefly.

My card is made with papers from The Paper Studio and Recollections and my flowers are from The Paper Studio. I even used an old orphan earring circa 1980. My name is Nancy, and I am a hoarder...

The challenge runs another 4.5 days and the DT cards are super inspirational.

Hugz and stay warm!

  2. Nancy, I absolutely love this precious kitty image. Your card is super and the sentiment is so sweet for a valentine.

    I emailed you last night to find out if you were snowed or iced in....hope all is well. We just had a dusting of snow yesterday morning. Extremely cold. Hubby said it was three degrees on his car temp this morning. I hate it.

  3. I absolutely love this card! The sentiment and image go perfectly together; plus I'm a sucker for anything with a cat on it. :-) Hope you missed the snow and ice yesterday. We were in B'ham and barely made it out in time.

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
