Flashback Friday on Sunday Night

My blogging buddy Vicki has a Flashback Friday challenge. Vicki is trying to encourage herself and others to use their OLD stamps in new ways. The current challenge is to use an old Valentine image. You need to check out Vicki's cards and her challenge HERE. I dug out an old Valentine's stamp and here is my card:


This old set has several fun images, but this one is my favorite. The set is from SU! circa 2006.

Fun challenge Vicki!

Here are a few more cards I made this weekend for various challenges on SCS:

  6. Busy weekend for you and a very creative one. I remember that SU set and I loved it. I did the same thing yesterday, I dug way into the back of the closet and took out older stamps. I think it is nice to love them and ink them up again. Your first card is darling and I adore the others. Each one beautiful. Enjoy your day.

  17. you've done a great job "reinventing" the use of your older stamps - I am so enjoying wandering through my collection and slowly using all those pretties which have been neglected for far too long! What truly amazes me when visiting your blog is that I never know what to expect - always something "old, yet new", always something different (but not), and such a wide array of techniques and styles! You are a gifted artist! hugs, de

  18. The designer will ask you a few questions. Make sure you ask your own questions too.
    Ask for pictures of Kitchen counters that he has done before.
    Do not accept kitchen manufacturers Kitchen counters. If the designer cannot give examples of Kitchen counters then move on.
    It would be best if the designer has done projects similar to your Gold Coat Kitchen

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 Splitcoaststampers.com 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
