Dreaming of Travel Valentine

I wanted to do a different kind of Valentine so this Seaside Dock image from DRS Designs was perfect. The image reminds me of how a dock would look in Italy or Spain  - two places I would love to visit.  I added a splattered and glittered bg panel using the Splatter BG image  since I made this for the latest DRS Designs challenge which is Sparkle and Shine!
I also added the Medium Daisy Bloom image which I added Stickles too and a glittered up gem plus the Medium Script Valentine's Day sentiment.  After adding all this, I realized it needed something more so I tucked in a few punched hearts.
Hope your Valentine's preparation is going well.  I finally decided I am giving Hubby a Yeti cup filled with his favorite candies (Milky Ways and Kit Kats) - he is tough to buy for so I am glad I have that figured out. 
Many hugz!


  1. I would think along the same lines as you with the docks in Europe seeing this image. I love that nice bright flower and the hearts were just the right little something needed. I'm laying scrabble with a friend and I can use "Yeti" right now, so thanks for mentioning it. I hadn't even thought of that word. Nice morning, I get to see your beautiful card and get help with my game all at the same time.

  2. What a beautiful design Nancy!! I love the color combo along with your flower accent!! Really beautiful! HUGS

  3. This is delightful! So pretty with just the right colors and balance. Love it!

  4. This is a brilliant Valentine card Nancy, such an original design.

  5. Fabulous Valentine's card and such a great image to use for one. Love your design too.

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
