Butterfly Medallion and a Lure

Had to play in the FS challenge at SCS and I cased THIS gorgeous card by Heidi. Had to use my new Lunette Butterfly by Memory Box. This card made me fall in love with my medallion stamp all over again!

Also played in the Mixed Media and Teapot Tuesday Challenge with this card:

Fun day playing on my kitchen counter!



  1. Just beautiful :-D I would really like to see a TuT on this.
    IKE xxxx

  2. Love both of these cards Nancy. Love the softness of the butterfly card but I also like the Fly fishing lure. Used to love fly fishing. Nope! Can't decide. It is a draw. Both are winners.


  3. These are both gorgeous! The medallion stamp card is so beautiful...and the fishing card...well, you know how I love fishing card!!!
    Great cards!!!

  4. I absolutely LOVE what you've done with that medallion stamp! What a fantastic background for that pretty butterfly, and the 2nd is a great masculine card with a quote that's so true! Well done on both!

  5. Your first card is a total Class Act! I love it and the soft sweet colors you went with. Your second card is just ideal for any male or female if she is a fishing person. Don't send it to me, because I only eat fish, I don't catch them. LOL Seriously I do love this card and the die you went with on it. Enjoy your day.

  6. Beautiful work thanks for sharing with me ,reading your profile makes me smile I like my kitchen to be sparkly clean and empty , would much rather be in the garden or craft area..............Lis

  7. Beautiful, creative cards! The first one is a great case of Heidi's card! The second one the sentiment is so perfect with this image!

  8. these are both fabulous Nancy, I like the lure with that sentiment but that butterfly is stunning!!

  10. Two beautiful cards Nancy, I love your gorgeous die cut butterfly, such an elegant card.

  11. Amazing color combo on the medallion card, beautiful! Never thought in terms of learning while fishing!

  12. Two wonderful cards. Love the background for the butterfly stamp and the feather on the fishing lure looks fabulous.

  13. Both so pretty. I like your medallion stamp as well. And the sentiment in the second one is so deep.

  14. Your cards are so pretty. I love how you spritzed the medallion stamp and made a beautiful background with for medallion stamp. The second one is so perfect for the fisherman and the sentiment says it all. Have a great day.

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
