Toast and a Lucky Hand

It's Birthday Card time at Pattie's Creations! I made one with the Toaster with Toasts image and one with a Freebie card hand that was available on the Challenge Blog a few months ago (Pattie posts a free image every month - right now there is a cute Gecko image - see the tab at the top of the blog that says Freebies).

Come join in the fun!



  1. Two fun birthday cards. I really like them both. I had never seen the birthday toasts image before, it darling and wouldn't the royal straight flush be the best gift if you were playing cards. Oh, you've set me off dreaming now and I don't even gamble. LOL Enjoy your day and upcoming weekend.

  2. Two fabulous cards, I love the toast one - brilliant sentiment. Great matching image and papers on the second one.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  3. Such lovely cards both of them. The first one is cool with it's sentiment and the tartan. The second one is very nice too.

  4. These are both fabulous Nancy, I love them.

  6. That first card had me giggling. Love it :) Well done on the second one too.

  7. Both cards are absolutely sensational but I love, love the toaster, just too cute!

  8. Those images are really fun Nancy. I like all the distressing you did a lot. Hugs!

  9. Nancy - I was so happy to see that you kept the Playing Cards image that you kept for one of your creations! I really love the distressed edges of your papers. It looks like a touch of elegance! I forgot about the freebie Gecko until you mentioned it, thanks!

  11. Nancy,
    Wow, two different cards! I love both of them...

  12. Both cards turned out wonderful Nancy. I especially like the tattered and torn look you've got going on in the first one. You've made it look natural when in fact it is difficult to achieve sometimes.

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
