Happy Mail

I love mail and this week's DRS Designs challenge is all about mail - envelopes, mailboxes, letters, writing, mailmen, etc. 

I used the new Happy Mail Image fussy cutting the mailbox.  I also used the Script Font background stamp, some leaves from Happy Mail and some from Leafy Tree Branch.   Then I added the Sitting Here sentiment. 

Fun challenge - hope you will join us.



  1. This is such a nice card with all the text in the background and the snail mail theme. I love how you tucked the greenery behind the edge too! Who doesn't love getting a nice card in the mail :)

  2. This is fabulous Nancy, lovely muted colours and fabulous design.

  3. Love those leaves on the side of this beautiful mailbox! A gorgeous card once again.

  4. Absolutely terrific! Love your layout and wonderful background!

  5. Wonderful card Nancy I like the mail box and the distressing

  6. I love yours too Nancy! After seeing the first two on the challenge I decided that something had to been done differently!!! Glad to see yours different too and really lovely with the script in the bg my friend! thanks as always for commenting on my blog!

  7. Love the leaves down the side and the sponging is fabulous!

  8. Oh I do love me some happy mail!! :) This is a wonderful design and I love your sponging along the edges to give it that Vintage flair!!

  9. I was wondering why this card struck my fancy so much. The color combination is perfect but what really set it apart is the background to the mail box and the sentiment. How perfectly you matched them. The mail box finishes the card excellently. Perfect.

    Hugs and Blessings

  10. Love this!! What a fab design! The leaves down the side are brilliant!

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
