Weekend Cards

Happy Monday my friends,

I went to the most lovely wedding this weekend - my niece, Carrie Jo, tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at Apple Valley Farms. She was beautiful and smiled the biggest smile (seriously - I have only ever seen Julia Roberts smile bigger) the whole evening even though I know she was melting in the 100 degree heat (one of the pitfalls of outdoor weddings). When I look at her, I still see her as a little girl helping me paint the nursery walls at church and jabbering away. It was our first really long talk and I was amazed at how insightful and smart she was - no surprise she is now a hot shot attorney. The wedding was out of town and we stayed the night, but I still got to stamp a bit Saturday morning and last night.

All the cards above were made for the Inspiration Challenge at SCS. The next card was made for the Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS and I cased THIS card.

Hugz, and I hope you have a wonderful week!


  1. Awesome cards, Nancy. I can tell you put so much heart into your cards.
    I can imagine that hot that wedding was outside but I'm sure it was beautiful.

  2. All of these are fabulous. Love the simplicity of the first three and all the dimension on the last one. Love those feathers behind the bouquet of flowers.

  3. These are ALL really gorgeous designs!! I am really drawn to the CAS style, but the flowers on the second card are stunning with the dimension too!! Great job! HUGS :)

  4. I love all 3 of those wonderful CAS cards, but I'm blown away with that gorgeous floral beauty! Who knew flowers, feathers and doilies would go together so well, especially when they're tied up with some pretty sheer ribbon! Well done on all!

  5. These are all beautiful Nancy, I love those flowers

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

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

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
