Weekend Cards

This week's Outlawz Paper A La Mode challenge is Focus on the Sentiment.  The sponsor is Digi Stamp Boutique.  I used a sentiment and image from their super fun Boys Toys set.  This set covers golf, racing, fishing and gaming and is perfect for those masculine cards.

I did my background with smooshing and acetate smooshing in a few distress ink blues.  I did my fish and my sentiments from the same panel.

My second weekend card is one I made when challenged to use a stick on a card.  I also used some cardboard, drywall tape, water colors, modeling paste, and a super fun Tim Holtz Crazy Bird image. 

My sentiment is from DRS Designs.  Fun card to make.

Hope you had a good weekend too!



  1. Both so cool, Nancy. Sorry, been so preoccupied with life.

  2. Two wonderful guy cards. Love the used of the stick, great idea and that dry wall paste came out fantastic. Your colors on your smooching technique work so well together. I'll bet you had fun doing these two. Enjoy your day.

  3. What a great pair of spot-on trendy cards! I love the fishy background and the crazy bird - well he's just too funny! I'm really loving that corrugated panel too!

  4. These are awesome! Love the shabby green paint on the bird card!

  5. Fabulous cards Nancy, I love the fun fish one - such a great sentiment. Your Crazy Bird looks brilliant perched on his branch and your corrugated card background is perfect.

  6. Both of these creations are really adorable Nancy!! Fabulous job! HUGS

  7. WOW, Nancy, love them both. The fish and the background is so awesome, and love the sentiment.
    And even though I just can't get into the birds, love what others are doing with them, and your card
    turned out with such great texture and design.


  8. Both of these just put a big huge smile on my face!!! So cute and creative - and adorable. Lovin' that crazy bird!

  9. Very nicely done cards! You are so creative!

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
