Luau Inspired Prayers

The colors on the pictures for this week's MFPSpeedyTV Inspiration Challege #74 (Luau Wedding Tables) are gorgeous:

I picked the purple and green table - I love those colors together.

To make my card, I used MFP's Cone flower and Lots of Words sets. I stamped the butterfly from Lots of Words on one of my panels instead of trying to find some dp to match everything. I water colored the bg using drywall tape and then water colored my image as well.

I hope you will join us. If you have any questions about the challenge or how to participate, please let me know. I really love MFP stamps - the sets come with so many sentiments and are so versatile. I am happy to announce that I will be joining the MFP Senior Design Team in August. Fun times!



  1. Very charming card, Nancy. I like the colour combo immensely.

  2. Love your card and that's one of my favorite color combos too. Love how you created the background for the flower.

  3. Love this beauty, Nancy. What a gorgeous flower and background. Great layers, too. Congrats on your Sr. DT position. Have fun!!!!

  4. A very gorgeous card and I also love the colors. I can definitely tell which picture you drew your inspiration from. I love the use of the brads. Congrats on being a new Sr DT member. I am happy you are joining us. Yippee.

  5. Your card is so gorgeous! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and congratulating me on my win from last week!

  9. This is a gorgeous cone flower and that background is nothing short of amazing!! You've created a fantastic WOW factor card!

  10. So glad to hear you will be one the senior design so deserve it.!!!
    It is so much fun to win one of their stamp sets. I am making a strong effort to get each inked and out to card. I have been delaying too long.

    Sometimes I do wish they would check a bit more as there are still people winning who enter the same card in other challenges that week...happened this week again! Drag

    Your card is lovely....such beautiful colours together!

  11. The purple and green really do work so well together and that flower stamp is gorgeous - such a striking card! Congrats on the DT too :)

  12. Great flower and love the textured BG. Purple and green are such a fabulous colour combo and you made them shine :)

  13. You have such a wonderful, detailed artsy style, Nancy. Your cards always have a lot going on, but I don't mean "busy". You layer things just so, and include all the "God is in the details" bits that make your creations a joy to behold.

    This card is really beautiful!

    And PS, thank you SO, SO much for always coming to visit me and leave pretty comments. You make me smile!

  14.!!! This is absolutely gorgeous!!! LOVE your drywall tape background and the layers. Just a wonderful card!!! Congratulations on your new senior DT position!!!

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
