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!

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
