Thinking Pink/Warrior Spirit

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, my card today is for all the people out there battling this tough disease and the people who are there supporting them.  Several women in my family and close circle of friends have had to face down Breast Cancer.  Right now my Mother and my cousin are doing their second battles with it.  They are admirable women facing it with poise, courage, determination and very positive attitudes.

I love this DRS Designs  Cancer Is...Greetiing, it is very inspirational and something I could read every day.  I hand drew and cut my pink feathers and colored them with distress inks and Frantage.
I added them to represent the warrior spirit of those facing cancer.

Hope you are having a great week!  I have been spending lots of time with my grandsons lately and haven't been visiting everyone like I should.  I will be by to catch up this weekend. 

Many hugz!


  1. Wow, this is a phenomenal card with that sentiment. It's so very true. The the corrugated paper also. So very sorry your family is also affected. My thoughts and prayers will be with your Mom and cousin. I, for one, think your time is so much better spent with your grandsons. You are so lucky they live close and you can do that. Don't worry about visiting any blogs, just treasure your moments with them.

  2. What a very inspirational design Nancy! Love the textured background and added feather accents!! Enjoy those grandkids before they grow up already!! ;) 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

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?
