All Ears!

Hello friends! Today, I am all ears! Bunny ears, that is. 

My two cards are made with the DRS Designs Bunny Ears stamp.  This stamp is super cute and ranges from $3.05 to $6.10 in the store depending on if you get it unmounted, cling, or mounted on a wood base.  I get unmounted and use them in my MISTI.

I used THIS wreath tutorial  by Dina at Splitcoaststampers to create the base wreath for my two cards.  It was super easy and I love the results!
I did the first card CAS.  I did a layer of ears, colored them up with my new Arteza Brush Pens, did some doodling, added some Stickles, and then topped it off with some pearls one of my Grandsons had drug out of the craft room (they are smart boys!).

My second card started with the same base of bunny ears, but I just kept adding layers of ears and eggs and doodles.  Hubby thinks it looks like Easter blew up on this one, but I think that is a good thing - lol!
I also added in some Open Leaf Branch twigs ($5 unmounted and so versatile), and the egg off the Easter Ears Leonard Pig image ($5 unmounted).  The greeting is Deco Easter Greetings ($4.50 unmounted).  Before adding the greeting, I splattered on some brown watercolor paint to add even more detail. 

Easter is on its way.  I am really looking forward to it this year because I am hiding eggs for the adults, teenagers, and kids - everyone is going to have fun. 

Many hugz,

Nancy

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
