Some Halloween Cards

Did a few last minute Halloween cards this weekend - I need to get them in the mail - these will be the only ones I am mailing this year.
This card is for the Outlawz Paper A La Mode Challenge - this week it is all about Halloween.  The sponsor is A Day for Daisies. I was unfamiliar with this company until this challenge and I have to say that I love their whimsical images.  This is Little Witch on Fence and she was so easy to color up.  I colored the fence, the cats, and a few parts of her outfit and then I sponged on some super Halloween colored Distress inks.  Added a few doodles and some white gel pen - didn't take long at all!

This card was done for the Splitcoast Stampers Inspiration challenge.  My inspiration was a tiny ghost charm.  Can you find my little shy ghost?

My images are from DRS Designs - Silhouette Majestic Pines and Silhouette Grave Yard.  Sponged the whole thing with Memento black and TH Distress Victorian Velvet.  Added in some SU! Dazzling details.  Super fast card with no coloring. 



  1. Both cards are fabulous! I love that adorable image on the first, and the colors on the 2nd are fantastic! I love the tiny graveyard with those majestic trees! Great Halloween cards!

  2. Cute first card and love the sparkly wisps of clouds and great bg on the second!

  3. Both are wonderful! Love the shading on both cards. Really make them scream Halloween and fun. I did spot that little ghost too!

  4. Two super Halloween cards Nancy, I love the way you have coloured your sweet little witch and the colours on the second card are gorgeous.

  5. Love both of these cards. That first image is fabulous and looks like it was fun to color. The second one is beautiful with your glittered clouds against that gorgeous sky. I did find the ghost, but I had to look twice before I spotted it. Old eye I guess!!! Enjoy the evening.

  6. Great cards for Halloween! Love the little witch on the fence and I love the eeriness of the glitter clouds among the trees.

  7. Both cards are fabulous Nancy, I do love the little witch with her cats, I hope the baby is doing well

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?
