Weekend Cards

I had a chance to play in some challenges on SCS this weekend (color, inspiration, and Featured Stamper) and here are my cards:

The first three cards were made with SU! and Verve images/sentiments and the bottom ward was made completely with DRS Designs images, background, and sentiment.  This may have been the last weekend I have to play a bunch with my stamps as it looks like Crystal will have her baby this week - I can't wait to meet little Lewis and be a grandmother! 



  1. This is a beautiful array of cards. Your second card is one of my favorite type I cards. I love to do that center script on a card. It just looks so nice. Even though that one strikes me a bit more than the other, I think the others are just as gorgeous. I will be sorry if you don't have as much time to play with card making, but so happy for you that you will have something so much better to play with, little Lewis. Please share pictures with us every now and then. Congrats Grandma!!!!!

  2. Wow you've been so busy Nancy!! :) I just LOVE all of them!! I have to say that I think that lobster is my fave!! Such a cool design, but then again, I think you've pretty much rocked them ALL!!! Thanks for sharing these!! HUGS

  3. These all look awesome! Love how you used the same colors with completely different results. Congrats on becoming a grandma soon!

  4. Great set of cards. Love the colour combo you used on them. Great trio of sea themed cards and love the texture behind the feathers on the first one.

  5. A fabulous collection of cards Nancy, they are all gorgeous but I especially like the last one with the wonderful texture.
    I hope the baby arrives on time and you can enjoy being a Grandmother.

  6. Fantastic cards Nancy! Glad you were able to squeeze in card making before the big event! Enjoy the journey!

  7. Your cards are just wonderful! Congrats on your becoming a grandmom soon!

  8. The thank you card with the wooded background and feathers really speaks to me!

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
