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

  3. Fabulous card and I love that sentiment! That feather looks amazing too. So sorry to hear your mom and cousin are battling it again.

  4. What a wonderful card Nancy, that sentiment is so true, sending healing thoughts to your Mum and Cousin

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

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
