Some Forgotten Cards

Two posts in one day is unusual for me, but this week flew by and I neglected to post some cards I made so I am catching up.

Yesterday, my oldest daughter co-hosted a wedding shower for one of her best friends. It was a kitchen shower and she had found THIS fun card on Pinterest for me to case. Here is our version:

At the scrapbook retreat I went to last weekend I made this fun card casing THIS card by addINKtive designs:

She used SU! digital punches - I so want to get them! I just used Word playing around with the shapes. I also used the free word bubbles available at Squigglefly HERE.

I made this card for the MMTPT Teapot Tuesday Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. It is going to my friend Carol's Mother. I made it with an image by Lynne Stansbery called I miss you and is available at Squigglefly.

Lastly, I made this card a few weeks ago but forgot to post it. It was my back up Valentines Day card for Kenny, but I gave it to a friend since I didn't use it. It is made with a new image by Carmen Gamble called 58 Impala. I had an Impala in 1989 and loved it, but this version here was the very first one.

Thanks for visiting!



  1. Wonderful cards, Nancy. What a cool impala! I love your card for Carol's is just precious. The apron card is super with all the utensils. I guess the digital punch was the stitching on your card. Super!

  2. Oh, I love all of these! Each one is so different but so cool. (Have you seen the new die set from MFT Stamps called Smartphone? Your 2nd card reminds me of that and it has word bubbles and a coordinating stamp set too. Just call me an enabler LOL).

  3. Okay, Nancy, this post requires four WOW's WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW! I love them all. The apron card is so adorable and just perfect for a shower card, The phone card cute! And the image by Lynn, just fabulous as always and you put it together so nicely. The last card brings back memories for me...we lost count how many Chev's we had through the years.

  4. Four really nice cards. I have to be honest and say I am partial to the third one. Lynne Stansbery is my favorite artist over there.

  5. This is a fabulous selection of cards Nancy, they are all gorgeous but I do especially Iove the last one - as you probably know, I'm rather partial to male cards.

  6. Wow Nancy, each card is fantastic! I especially like the card you made for the shower, lots of eye appeal and great colors!

  7. These are all really fabulous Nancy,my favourite has to be the cat
    Kevin xx

  8. What a great variety of cards! I love them all. I especially think the flags and that way too perfect and cute stop light are the best embellishments I've ever seen on a card! The pink and black texting card is really cute too.

  9. Wow, these are all so fabulous. I love your version of the apron card! The Vroom is fabulous, love the great card design. Chocolate does understand and I love the texting card. Fabulous!

  10. All so fantastic... so much goodness all packed in one post. The first card and the chocolate card with the cute kitty are very striking for me.

  11. these are so stunning nancy.i love your range of images and designs ;D

    xx coops xx

  12. Love the cards, Nancy! Don't you hate it when you give a card away and realize you forgot to take a photo of it? Glad you took pictures before sending. They're all nice, but the kitchen shower card is awesome, and I love the Impala card as well with its lights and flags..really super cute!

  13. How chickie cool all your cards are Nancy. The apron is super cute-I love that you kept with the shower theme. The little kitty face will just melt your heart, pink and black are a dynamic combination, and the car is super classic for a guy. Fantastic work.
    Bear Hugs,

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
