Peanut Butter and Jelly Ale, a Flower, and Some Butterflies

 It's T-Day over at Elizabeth's where we share something related to drinks.

This week I have a fun Peanut Butter and Jelly Ale from Catawba Brewery.  It is fabulous and, of course, my grocery only had the one pack.  I may have to drive to South Carolina and get some more!

I also have a  few cards to share - I made one of them a few weeks ago and can't remember if I shared or not.  The flower die on the first card is a current one from Close to My Heart.  I fell in love with it at my aunt's house and had to buy it.  The background is modeling paste added to an embossing folder and smooshed on card stock (by hand). 

The butterflies are from DRS Designs - I am having fun with them. 
Hope you are having a wonderful week and happy T-day!




  1. PB&J is definitely an unexpected flavor for any alcoholic beverage!

    best… mae at

  2. Oh! That beer looks fantastic!!!! Hmmmm, would I want to try that!
    And the cards are wonderful, too.
    Wow. That was a short one (I´m a bit... "disappointed" ;-)
    Have a great and yummy T-Day! Hugz

  3. PB and jelly beer. I'd try that. How does the jelly taste? I like PB beer so why not add jelly. And Nice cards too. You inspire me to try making some more as I used to make a lot of them. The white one has some gorgeous details. I hope you have a great T day and week ahead also Nancy. Hugs-Erika

  4. Wowz that beers sounds amazing! I'd love to try it, such fun 😀. Your cards are so beautiful too, the flowers and butterflies both look so elegant - stunning! Happy T Day wishes! Hugs Jo x

    Happy T-Day,

  7. PB and J beer-hmmmm...
    your cards are just beautiful !! Happy T day!

  8. I can't imagine PB&J beer lol. I love your cards and that flower die makes beautiful flowers. I would be sorely tempted to buy one if I wasn't trying to save money. Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xx

  9. I can't imagine PB&J beer either! LOL! Both of your cards are absolutely stunning! Love the delicate look of the flowers on the top and the pretty design on the butterflies on the second! Wonderful inspiration today friend!

  10. I am not sure about the combination of PB & J would go with beer, but it must be great if you are willing to drive out of state to buy more.

    I absolutely LOVE your cards. Both are fabulous. Reinforces why I don't make cards. They are both absolutely stunning and I am delighted you took the time to explain them to us.

    Thanks for sharing your beer and your cards with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nancy.

  11. You always find the most interesting beers. I think I stick to straight beers, though. Your cards are beautiful, I especially like the one with the butterflies.
    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog!

  12. That drink sounds good as I love me a peanut butter & jelly sandwich. Your cards are gorgeous. I am glad I am not the only one that can't remember what I have shared! Happy T Day!

  13. I can't imagine what PBJ beer tastes like :) Love both cards, especially the flower ♥

  14. PB&J beer sounds like fun. Beautiful cards. Happy T Day

  15. Oooh! Your drink looks intriguing! Love your cards too. Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx

  16. Beautiful cards Nancy, I love the one with the beautiful, bold flower.
    The Ale sounds interesting, not sure if I would like it to be honest.
    For some strange reason blogger is putting your comments straight into my spam folder, along with quite a few others!

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

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

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
