Christmas Flowers

It is Christmas in June at Squigglefly - time to get a jump on or little dent in your Christmas card stash. I have only done a few Christmas cards this year so I was glad to have this inspiration:

I used Elizabeta Kushner's Christmas Poinsettia image and Charlene Mitchell's Merry Christmas Set Sentiment.



  1. What a gorgeous beautiful elegant card, Nancy!! I love it!!

  2. What a sweet Christmas card. A poisettia is a flower that makes my heart sing and so does your card.

    Well, we are moving to Singapore, Nancy and it is our second tenure this time. We have lived in Indonesia for seven years and I am feeling rather grateful in my last few days here. Singapore is a nice city, clean and easy to live in and safe as well. Once we settle down and have our own home, we will feel better. And ofcourse once our kids go to their new schools and make friends, it would help as well.

    Thanks for asking,


  3. Traditional Christmas elegance, Nancy! That poinsettia is so beautiful.

  11. Christmas! Wow-nice start to your stash. This is so pretty. Love the flower and the little tulle tie. I am now convinced I can post my Halloween item I had been holding off. My Mom asked me to come home so I will be leaving for CT in a couple weeks. She is not doing well. I have just been out-of-sorts as of late. Love and miss you.
    Bear Hugs,

  14. Beautiful card Nancy. I really like how you colored the background behind the leaves. That ribbon you used is gorgeous!

  15. Wow! Love what you did with the drawing! Great work! :)

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
