A Cute Snowman

Have you ever finished a project and then realized that you forgot a key point or requirement?  Well this week's Squigglefly challenge is You're a Dear - use a dear sentiment or a deer.  I finished my card, uploaded it and then looked at everyone else's cards.  They all had deers and dear sentiments and mine had neither.  Had to go back and add a little IO deer to the bg - looks like of funny back there, but I am going to give this one to my Hubby and this weekend was the start of when you can hunt deer in AL with regular guns so it is appropriate for him as he is in deer hunting mode now - he probably even dreams about them!  My image is by Cheryl Grant Alger and is called Star Bright Star Light - the sentiment is by Charlene Mitchell

Come join in the challenge fun!



  1. Yes, I have done the exact same thing. I love this card. The pink background is a very nice change of pace for a snowman and the deer is looking to be hiding behind the snowman so none of those hunters can find him. All and all it turned out to be a fantastic card. Wishing you a great week ahead.

  2. I think we have all done that at some point Nancy, I know I certainly have!
    This is a fabulous card, I love your fun snowman and your deer looks sweet peering out from behind him.

  3. I think the deer is precious poking his head out to get a glimpse of that fantastic snowman - and hiding from all the hunters at the same time!! LOVE your card and those colors are so fun and pretty.

  4. That snowman just makes me smile :) Such a great image and fabulously coloured too. Glad someone else gets to the end and has an "oh oh" moment LOL! Great recovery and sure hubby will love it.

  5. What a fabulous card, I love that snowman, he's great!!

  9. Wonderful card, and I think it was a happy accident you forgot the dear and had to stick him back there since this card is for your husband. The white dear on your card blends in as well as the real ones do in the woods!

  10. This is so cute, I love that snowman and your colors are so happy and pretty. Oh, yes, I have forgotten the key to a challenge lots of times. You made a great save on this one.

  11. How cute! Love your snowman in pinks.

  12. Nancy,
    As always, your card is wonderful and adorable. I see the pretty little deer behind the sweet snowman!!

  13. so gorgeous nancy.i love the happy bright colours and your jolly snowman is stunning ;D

    xx coops xx

  14. Nancy, this is SO CUTE! very sweet brilliant colors! hugs, de

  15. Oh my goodness-isn't that just so darn cute. I am in love with this. And it's pink. I am having a pink Christmas this year. I haven't been all that much into it. I didn't even put all my things out. But I made myself put up a tree and 1 garland. I always have a tree in my foyer that I decorate for each season - so two trees instead of 4 or 5 . So they are all pink. Something new with not a lot of memories attached.

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
