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!

  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!!!

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
