An Auburn Wreath

Living in Alabama, you must chose whether you are an Auburn fan or an Alabama fan.  It doesn't matter if you are not from Alabama or you have another team you support, you have to pick one or the other so you have something to tell everyone who asks you.  I have lived here for 26 years and I have to say that I can't pick - I like them both.  I really do! 

The Squigglefly challenge this week is to make a Christmas card and you get a "bonus" if you make it with non-traditional colors.  Since I was watching the Auburn game when I colored up this lovely Large Holly Wreath with Bow by Pam Lehto, I decided to color it Auburn colors.  I will be sending it to one of my many Auburn fans. 

Hope you have a chance to join in the challenge with us this week!



  1. What?????? An Auburn wreath. Well, you did say you like both. You'll just have to make an Alabama wreath very soon, though. HA Your wreath and card are very pretty but can't you just image it in red and white? You know what a fanatic football fan I am. O.K., I'm going away. LOL

  2. this is gorgeous!!! I am coming to Alabama in a short bit to visit my Grandma!! Love your card Nancy!!

  3. A fabulous card, I love your wreath and Auburn colours - I have to admit I don't have a clue what you are talking about though!

  5. So beautiful Nancy!! I really love the awesome sparkle on your wreath!! It looks amazing! HUGS :)

  7. Our weather here in Texas at Christmas is more like autumn so I love your card!!! Really like those stars on it too. So beautiful.

    Well, my daughter received her Master's from Univ. of Alabama so she doesn't even have to waver on who he's for! LOL! I think they're two great teams!

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
