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!

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
