Weekend Projects

I always show what is on my kitchen counter since I craft there, but today I want to show you what was on my kitchen table this weekend:

It is a Little Blue Truck painted on a giant 6 ft box.  It covers my super large kitchen table.  My daughter and I painted it this past weekend for my Grandson's 1st Birthday.  They are going to cut it out and use it for a picture prop at the party.  So fun!!!

I made a few cards this past weekend as well.  This one was for the Splitcoast Stampers Black/White Inspiration Challenge and the Fan Club Challenge for June/July:

This one is for the Outlawz Paper A La Mode challenge.  The image is from A Day for Daisies and is called Wedding Mum.  I sponged the bg and the images (I used three copies of the image).

Hope your weekend was wonderful and your week is going well.  Many hugz!


  1. Nancy, that big blue truck for your grandson's 1st birthday is great!!! What a fun photo prop! You'll have to post a pic of your grandson with the prop.

    Beautiful cards too. I really like the black and white butterfly one. Those tiny flowers on the butterfly look gorgeous!

  2. Your cards are beautiful Nancy, the first one is so elegant and I love the beautiful colours on the second one. What a fabulous truck - your grandson is going to love it.

  3. That sympathy card looks sensational with the flowers on the butterfly's body! Gorgeous and so creative. I really like the wonderful colors and dimension on the floral card, and I just know that big car is going to be a hit at the party! So fun!

  4. Well that is one great photo backdrop. Love the license plate. LOL Your cards are beautiful but I am totally struck by the sympathy card. I would have never thought to use the flowers on the butterfly, and now I see I should have thought of it because it is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing with us. Enjoy the evening.

  5. What a fabulous backdrop for pictures your car will make! I see that your daughter has inherited her mother's talent!!!
    Butterfly is lovely. Really creative use of the tiny flowers, makes this butterfly extra special.
    Sponging of the background and the flowers are awesome. Love the colors you chose. You have been a busy lady...........


  6. Gosh, there's a lot going on on your table this week Nancy!
    I love all of your creations! The truck looks like a fun photo prop too!
