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.

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

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

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb
