Some Fun Western Cards

Hello friends.  I have to admit that I almost forgot I have a blog.  Life just gets to moving so fast that things fall by the wayside.  This morning, I had a few minutes and thought I would share with you some great new Western images at DRS Designs.  There are pretty cowboy boots, hats, cactus, a barn door, dancing cowgirls and cowboys, nd fun western words.  Here are a few that I have made with them so far and if you check out the DRS Designs Blog, you can see a bunch more.

This last one is my favorite with the colorful boots and fun feather in the hat.  The boots and hat are from one stamp called the 4-in-1 Cowboy Gear.  The sentiment is off a Western Word Square with 9 different sentiments that can be used individually or as a bg stamp. 

Fun stuff.  Hope you are doing well.

  4. Welcome back to blogland again Nancy - it's good to know you're doing well and still crafting :) Love these great western-themed cards! I just love those piggies, but like you - my favorite is the boot scootin' boogie card with those awesome colors!

  5. Hi Nancy,
    How nice to have you blog again. I have been missing you. Strange we haven't ever met yet we share such a special bond of craft and togetherness.

    Your cards are so fab - ALL of them. I do like the piggies very much though and the one with the cactus too I see to lean to. You are so talented and I love your style.

    Getting used to my daughter going away and when it is too much I just pray and hope that she is taken care of.

    We are in Singapore and she is in New York and I know many kids go so far away. Have to make my heart stronger.

    Lots of love,


  6. These are ALL amazing, Nancy! Wow, you should be on the payroll at DRS! You have showcased these images in the best way possible! Each one has fantastic details and I have to agree with you on that last colorful design! That feather is everything!! Please don't forget you have a blog, lol!! Hugs, Darnell

  7. I love all these cards! So very nicely done! Don't ask me to pick a favorite!

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
