Fun with a Coffee Cup!

Happy New Year friends.

DRS Designs has a fun new Paper Coffee Cup image and I have had some fun playing with it this past week!  For my first card, I made some paper bacon and eggs using water color paints, several layers of gel medium, paper and a heat gun.  I used a brush to splatter on some real coffee in the bg and added the fun new paper coffee cup and part of the Hugs, Kisses Valentine Wishes Greeting.

On my second card, I used two of the paper coffee cup images, added the new Coffee and Friends Greeting, and added some little playful critters:  "Shell"don The Turtle and the new Love Bug.

My last card is super easy.  I just made another coffee cup and did the bg with an embossing folder and a ton of Snowtex.  I was trying to express that coffee is warm when the weather is super cold outside:  Warm versus Cold.

Hope you are all staying warm.  It is even freezing in Central Alabama and that is saying something.  I can't complain because it will mean less bugs the rest of the year.

Hugz,

Nancy

  5. You are hereafter and forever dubbed The Queen of Texture, Nancy! I am blown away by these cards! If you haven't done a video or step-by-step of making those bacon and eggs, you should! And you're telling me it SMELLS like coffee, too??!! I've never seen anything that realistic on a card!! The critter card, of course, stole my heart, and the warm v. cold, especially right now, is a textural treat!! Happy New Year! Hugs, Darnell

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 Splitcoaststampers.com 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
