Some Christmas Goodies

Hello blog friends - I am still here.  We had snow in Alabama this week so it really looked like Christmas around here!  Hardly ever snows so it is such a treat for us!  

Here are a few recent Christmas cards I have made:

This one was made with an old SU! set - Natural Beauty.  It is one of my favorites.  I challenged a friend to make a Christmas card using it as it is one of her favorites too.  This is my creation:

This one is the Christmas card I mass produced this year.  I used DRS Designs images:  Frog on a Log, Santa Puppy and Triple Holly.  I sponged the bg with various colors, colored the images with Prisma Pencils and flecked on some Snowtex.

Here is a fun little Christmas tag made from an Amazon box and lots of Snowtex and gold micro beads.  Super fun to make.  The rolled sentiment is from DRS Designs - Christmas Especially to you.
Hope you are getting ready for Christmas and enjoying the season.  Hugz!


  1. These are amazing! I just love the awesome wreath - stunning! And the corrugated tag with that precious sentiment banner really wows me. Hugs, Autumn

  2. Wow!!! Three gorgeous Vintage, Distressed, Nancy W styled Christmas Creations:-) You are amazing my friend! Our styles went into such different directions since our early SCS days. Even if I tried, I could not come up with one of your gorgeous designs. Your cards are works of art, Nancy:-) Thank you so much for sharing. Hugs and Happy Holidays.

  3. Hi dear Nancy,

    What a pleasure to visit your blog and see the delightful new creations.

    Hope all is well with you and the snow.


  4. Fabulous creations Nancy, they are all beautiful but I think my favourite is the gorgeous tag.
    Most of the UK had snow over the weekend, we just had wind and rain in the south - it would be so nice to have snow for Christmas!

  5. Wow! These are ALL so beautifully done!

  6. Wow, snow in Alabama must be a treat!! Your creations are sure a treat, too, Nancy! My goodness, your talent is awe-inspiring! That leaf wreath is not a card, it is a wall decoration! And you know how much I love frogs, so your batch card has me grinning! And the tag - well, speechless!! Happy Holiday hugs, Darnell

  7. These are amazing!! Love the dimension and texture on all of these. Loved scrolling down to see all the other amazing things you've been working on. Sorry I haven't been around in quite a while. I'm doing more of the background stuff on my teams and that doesn't leave me much, if any, time to visit others or create many projects.

  8. That top card is amazing!! LOVE the wreath!!! and the corrugated tag - love!! Trust you had a fabulous Christmas and blessings for an amazing 2018 ♥

  9. These are gorgeous, Nancy! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog even though I haven't had anything new to post for ages. I'm hoping to FINALLY be able to make some stuff this week.

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
