A Few Last Minute Christmas Cards

I hope you all have your holiday cards already done and mailed out, but I am slacking as always.  I have a few last minute Christmas cards to share:
This one was made with the new DRS Designs Christmas Door Knocker image and some greenery made with the Tim Holtz Sizzix Holiday Greens dies.  I colored it up with some SU! markers and Stickles. 
This one was made with the Flamingo Palm Tree Scene in the background, some fussy cut shells from the new Seashell Christmas Tree image, and the new Seas and Greetings Greeting.   I used some funky fibers and pearls to add more texture to the wreath.  The window die is from MFTs and the wood grained embossing folder is from SU!.
I made a bunch of these.  I used several different fonts to create the quote from The Polar Express movie (hubby's favorite), I  watercolored a few lines on the left side an did some splatters.  It needed something else so I stamped the bells (from DRS Designs).  Some Stickles made the bells look a little better since they were over-stamped on the watercolor. 

Many hugz and well wishes!

  4. Your talent is fantastic, Nancy! Those first two cards aren't cards at all! They should be framed in shadow boxes or in some other way become annual Christmas home decor for the lucky recipients! And the evergreen border, bells, and schplatter on the third one are utterly divine!!

    Thank you for your visit and your lovely words! Mwah!! 🎄Happy Holiday 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
