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.



  1. It's been a while since you've been here - but came back with a bang. ALL Of these are just awesome!!!!! I have so many guys in the family that would love these cards. Great images and fabulous cards - each and every one! Good to see you again too.

  2. It's lovely to see you Nancy, a fabulous collection of cards - I think I agree with you, the last one is my favourite as well, those colourful boots are brilliant.

  3. Wow, Nancy...your Western Themed cards are gorgeous!!! All 5 of your cards have beautiful and creative designs with all your new products. Thank you so much for sharing my friend. Hugs..

  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!

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

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

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
