A Scrappy Card

The Squigglefly challenge this week is to make a card using scraps - how fun is that! I decided I would make a card made entirely from scraps - the base and every single other part of it. No coloring and no embellishments. I used Dizzy Gal by Sandra Caldwell.

This was so fun, I made another card with scraps too (this image is by James Horvath and is called Cow Fisherman):

Squigglefly added three new artists this month: Norma Burnell, Tam Hess, and Angela Charles. Check out their images - you will love their styles!

Hope you will join us in the challenge and use up some of your scraps. Hugz!


  1. These are the nicest scraps I've ever seen. Wonderful cards. Enjoy your Week.

  2. Such nice distressing and I like the variation in both the cards. One seems ideal for a lady and the other for a man.

  3. Your cards are so cute. I especially love the first one and the paper piecing. I love the pink hair with the sprinkles.
    You did a fab job using those scraps.

  4. What fun cards, Nancy. They are both so scrappy and fun. I love the sentiment to go with the last one. LOL

  5. Both those cards are just adorable but I totally love the Sandra Caldwell one. Your papers and layout are stunning. WOW

  6. These are both too cute! Love the added newsprint on both.

  7. Two fabulous cards Nancy, I love the pretty colours and your brilliant paper piecing on the first one.

  8. Nancy, this is the cutest EVER! I love how you combined these techniques and styles together. How clever - and what wonderful cards! hugs, de

  9. Both cards are really cute and clever! Love the cow fishing!

  10. They made me smile. Well done times two.

  11. Nancy, really big smiles and giggles for this most adorable card! I love the image you've colored and your card is awesome.

  12. What fun cards Nancy! I really love the use of the newspaper print!

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 Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

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
