Fun Weekend Cards

Yesterday, I tried to do a few of the Dirty Girl Challenges on Splitcoast Stampers.  I had intentions of doing at least half of them but I only got a few done.  The first two are done with DRS Designs Images and the second two with Tim Holtz Crazy Bird Images (the bg in the third is DRS too).  I had fun making these, and that is all that matters right?


Hope you had a fun weekend too!  Hugz!!!


  1. WOW these are all fantastic! Gosh I haven't checked out the challenges at SCS in quite some time ... thanks for wonderful inspiration! Have a great day and keep up the amazing work!!

  2. Your cards are stunning Nancy, I especially like the first one with the trees, such gorgeous colours and the TH Crazy Bird ones are such fun.

  3. Wonderful weekend projects. The last two definitely make me smile.

  4. Each one of these are super special cards and your backgrounds are amazing. The faces on your chicken and fish are just precious. Enjoy your week ahead.

  5. Fantastic cards! Always enjoy seeing your very, nicely done, creative cards!

  6. You've been busy! ADORE the first one - that BG is gorgeous with the trees and fabulous distressing on the second! Fun faces on the critter cards.

  7. You make great cards mf...these are just how well you get your blending to look.

  8. WOW!! You have totally blown me away with all of these creations Nancy!! I just love how you've created the sky on the top card!! Really amazing and thanks for sharing! :)

  9. Nancy, your cards are so cute. I am loving the backgrounds you have created. Sorry I haven't been around lately. Life seems to have other things for me to do other than crafting. I have two new grandbabies, one had to arrive early at 2.4 oz. She is doing good, but she is in a hospital 2 1/2 hrs away. I went to visit your daughters blog. I love her remakes on the furniture. You two are going to have lots of fun with her new endeavor. Hugs.

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
