A Few Fun Cards/Pages

I had a chance to play around a bit this weekend - it was so nice!

I made this card for the MIX challenge on SCS where participants were to use some type of packaging on their card or as a tool to make their card. I used the packaging from a Prima flowers package for the smaller flowers, sprigs and leaves (I painted them a bit with water colors and glittered them up but you can still see the writing on some of them). I colored all my papers with water colors and glitter.

I also have been trying out different card designs to make at work for a rewards craft day. The workshop will have lots of men so I wanted to come up with a card that would be interesting for them. This one will not be the one as I won't have a die cut machine. I used the Inspiration Challenge at SCS as my inspiration for this one:

The Queen for the Day challenge at SCS was ReginaBD and I cased her fun scrapbook page HERE. I only have about 19 more pages or Allie's Freshman scrapbook!

Lastly, I played in the Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS and cased This fun card.

Hope you had a great weekend too!



  1. Wow each one as spectacular at the other. Love every one of these, Nancy. Your fist card is just gorgeous, both the card and it's elements but the sentiment. So soft and beautiful. The masculine card is just outstanding. I love it, what a creative mind you have. Any guy would so appreciate this one. Alli's scrapbook page is precious and I love the circular picture next to the journaling. Your last card is just lovely as can be. The vintage look is just a thing of beauty. I so enjoy all of your posts all of the time. Enjoy your day.

  2. Wow! Nancy, you had a fun weekend and did some beautiful work. Each card and the scrapbook page is just fabulous. I know you're having fun.

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
