A Old Truck and a Deer

Now that the holidays are over, I am hoping to have more time to stamp and visit blogs.  I do plan to catch up with everyone soon.  This weekend, I had a bit of time to craft in between looking at new cars.  
I played in a few of the SCS challenges.  This one was made using the crackled glass technique.  I used a new Christmas Truck stamp I bought at Mike's a few days before Christmas (it was on a great sale so I had to get it).  The stamp is from Stampendous and is really large, but I focused on the truck and used the DRS  Designs Stained Glass Oval stamp to give it even more of a cracked glass feel.  My bg panels were all stamped with the DRS Designs Woodgrain stamp and sponged.  Everything on this card other than the berries started out as white.  I love me some ink!

The next card is made with a Delicious Doodles deer image - I love this image.  The challenge was an inspiration challenge.  I picked a fun deer picture as my inspiration.  Most the pictures in the challenge had splatters so after washing the image down with some water colors, I splattered the remaining color on the image.  The paper is from My Minds Eye. 

Hope your week goes well!

  3. These are both absolutely amazing! Love that crackle and the deer are fab!

  4. Whoa, Nancy, these are true works of art ready to use as decorations for next year!! I hope your Christmas was wonderful and I wish you all the best in the new year!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Love the fab images and details,fabulous

  6. Two outstanding cards here. I love both of them. The first one has such a great look with the crackle. and I love that you added the ferns and berries. It was as though the car was a gift all wrapped up. Your second image was just gorgeous and the splatters really made it look like they were in the middle of a snow storm. Your leaves, twine and back ground papers all came together perfectly to make such a beautiful card. Happy New Year.

  7. Beautifully done time two. Love the cracked glass! Happy new year to you and blessings for a great year ahead :)

  8. Gorgeous cards Nancy, I love the crackled glass effect and fabulous deer.

  9. Two really amazing designs here Nancy!! Love the images and I especially love the stained glass concept as well!! You are so talented!! :) HUGS

  10. Wow, these cards are amazing! I especially like that cracked/stained glass look on the truck!

  11. The cracked glass card is quite impressive with those rich colors and gorgeous texture. I thought you'd hand-drawn the deer on the 2nd card - it looks like a hand-made watercolor and it's beautiful! I hope you had a great Christmas season!

  12. I really think this is beautiful!
    Thank for your always encouraging me

  13. That card with a truck is so cool, as for me. I love cracked glass, that's why I like this card so much. This truck stamp on a cracked glass looks amazing!

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
