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

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
