A Flying Pig

The news DRS Designs Challenge is to make a Spooky or Cutesy Halloween card.  I went with Cutesy although the thought of a pig flying a broom is a bit scary!

For my background, I stamped the DRS Designs Starry Background stamp all over and then sponged a bunch of SU! Elegantly Eggplant.   I used a Spell Binder die to cut the main panel and sponged it with a bit of green.  I added the Leonard Pig's Dance of Joy image (I popped it up) and the Butt Look Good Greeting on the panel.  I added a little black hand cut hat to Leonard so he would look more like a warlock and I handmade my broom from some burlap, a toothpick, and some rolled kraft paper.  The spiderweb doily is from SU!

Fun challenge - hope you will come and play too.

  4. A brilliant card Nancy, such a fun image and sentiment - I really love the broom.

  5. OMGoodness, too funny! I love the sentiment and the pig is just as cute as can be!

  6. This is such a fun card with that great image and all of the purple color. However - I hope there are no flying pigs in the air when I'm outside! LOL

  7. Too fun :) Thanks for making me laugh! Cute card!

  8. The hat was a wonderful thought. I don't think the broom makes his butt look big at all. LOL Very cute card, you nailed that challenge. Have a non-scary day.

  9. The butt is not big but sure the broom looks super real. It is so well made. Love it.

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

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

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?
