Frosty Wishes

I sure hope all your Christmas dreams came through and that you were able to do some fun winter activities like making snow angels, building snowmen, sledding, skiing, and ice skating.  Those things seem so fun to me because we don't get to do any of those things here in Central Alabama due to our mild winters (except on rare occasions).  I made a frosty card sing some new DRS Design Stamps and some Snowtex.

I did the card base by stenciling on some Snowtex (heavy in some spots and not so much in others).  Then I flecked on some more to make it look frosty. 

On my sentiment panel, I stamped the Girl Swirl Heart lightly on the edges in Versamark and then chalked the panel with some tan chalk.  The versamark made the swirls lightly appear. Then I stamped on the new Baby It is Cold Outside Greeting.  On the skates, I stamped the Ice Skates image, fussy cut it, and glittered them up with Stickles. 

Many hugz,



  1. That is a real nice card for anyone but especially a skater. It would be perfect up here in Massachusetts right now. Brrr! I love the swirls on the panel. It looks just like the marks made on the ice after a spin. Your whole card came together perfectly. Wishing you a very Happy, Healthy New Year.

  2. Oh wow what a gorgeous sparkly set of ice skates there Nancy!! I just love the texture and sparkle on your design!! :) Hope you were spoiled at Christmas! Wanted to wish you a happy, healthy and productive New Year in 2017 my friend! HUGS

  3. Darling! Love the sparkle. Yeah for some snow fun too :)

  4. A gorgeous card Nancy, such a fabulous background and lovely sentiment.

  5. Those frosty, glittered skates look fabulous on that great background! What a super cute and fun wintry card!

  6. Great winter card! Like how you added the "bling!"

  7. Oh I just love the texture Nancy!

  8. This is an amazing card! I just love the layout - I am so late in getting around visiting people we are moving! Yippee! Have a blessed New Year - sad that DRS closed it challenges - enjoyed entering there a bunch - I wish you the best on your new adventures! [Thanks for directing me to Bible Journaling - I am behind in that as well--- sigh] Will get doing more when we get settled in our new place in February!

  9. This is so pretty! I love them ice skates! Fab card!

  10. Wow, snow looks so real here, it is almost dancing to me and expressing itself. Love the shoes and the general effect of it all. Stylish and shabby chic at the same time.

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
