Still Dreaming of Snow

I am still dreaming of snow - hope I don't sound like a broken record! For right now, my little snowy Christmas card is the closest thing I have to snow other than if I decide to chip off the frosty ice forming around my freeze door. 

I used the new Simple Christmas Ornament and stamped in the Triple Tree with Snow image.  I stamped the Triple Trees with Tim Holtz Dress Ink and blurred them with some water.  I stamped them in on my top card layer and did the same thing.  I added some Snow Tex and then stamped the Large Script Merry Christmas.  Inside I made a similar scene.

This also qualifies for the current DRS Designs Challenge: You Left Me Hanging! (a card with anything hanging, dangling, etc.) - today is the last day and we would love to see what brilliant creations you can make with this theme. 



  1. I love the look of this card. Such nice dimension and of course that snow looks so good right now. We are just coming out of a heat wave so your card is leaving me with a nice refreshing feel. Thanks for cooling me off this morning.

  2. Gorgeous card and I love your design!

  3. Nancy, this is so brilliant!! I love the way you've blurred the trees along with the texture of the snow!! Really brilliant creation!! Thanks for sharing! HUGS

  4. This is beautiful Nancy, such a fabulous technique - a wonderful Christmas card.

  5. Your card is beautiful with the snow. We are not dreaming of the same thing. LOL They say we are going to have a bad winter so I am not looking forward to it. Hugs.

  6. Such a lovely design, a gorgeous card!

  7. What a beautiful spotlighted ornament card! I love the "snow" you added. Perhaps you may have wished a little too hard for the snow, because according to the Farmer's Almanac, we're going to be deluged with lots and lots of it this winter! LOL They're claiming that anyone who now gets snow will have a white Christmas, so you'd better do your shopping and delivering mighty early! :)

  8. Another gorgeous holiday card. Love the orament, makes it look like the spotlight technique!! The texture of the snow is awesome too.


  9. Brilliant!! Love the ornament aspect with the layover scenery.

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
