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!

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
