Funky Beer, a Future Roadtrip, and Some Art

Hello friends!

I discovered a fun beer this week at my local rural grocery store (still surprizes me that they find such interesting beers!).  

It is a coffee milk stout from Wiseacre Brewing Company in Memphis, Tennessee.  The name and the can are creative and the beer was outstanding.  I looked them up online and now I want to go visit and try a bunch of their beers - check them out HERE.  They have a restaurant and store too so I am feeling a weekend trip may be in the cards for me after peewee football season is over - lol!

This is my ticket to T-day which I totally missed but I am going to link up anyway and check out what all the other T-day gang has been up to over at Elizabeth's blog (our clubhouse)

A little art from the week to share too.

Back to school card for my youngest grandson to give to his teacher - I did some stamp surgery on a Sassy Cheryl image and added in his little face from a recent picture. 

Had to make another one for another grandson:

A cute cat and dog card (images are all DRS Designs).  I cut the heads off three stamped images to make this tic-tac-toe grid.  The card fold was cased from Lisa Curcio who was the Featured Stamper this week at  If you want to see her card click HERE.  

Hope you are all having a fabulous week and happy late T-day!




  1. Good morning Nancy, so glad you dropped by. I love your back to school cards-I am thinking they love them too. the beer sounds fun, and I look forward to your post if you get to visit them. we have a ma and pa type grocery store not too far from us and they have a huge liqeur department I usually find a fun bottle of wine there. Happy T a bit late and good to "see" you again Hugs from the lake and Happy T Kathy

  2. Hi Nancy! Thaat beer sounds strange, stout wit coffee? But perhaps I need to try things which are out of my normal range! You r cards are gorgeous, and it's a lovely idea TO SEND THE NEW TEACHER A GREETIng!! Have a great week, hugs, Valerie

  3. Cute cards! I love the sentiment on the dogs/cats card. It made me laugh! 😊

  4. I must say that can is really pretty! I might even like coffee flavoured stout! I love those back to school cards. What a fun tic -tac-toe card. Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx

  5. I am so glad I checked the links today. I got caught up in the beer link you sent and I was reminded that I have had Irish Stout (Guinness, of course) and American Stout (Red Hook Brewery in Seattle where I took the tour, and Samuel Adams Stout, which a friend bought at a local liquor store. I would LOVE to visit that store in Memphis. Their Milk Stout sounds wonderful. Sadly, I doubt we get it here. We also have a local brewery that makes stout. When we go, everyone orders the combination, which comes with five different beers. No one wants the stout, so I get everyone else's. I am SO glad you shared this beer and the link, too.

    Those are adorable cards. I bet the teachers will feel extra happy and your grandsons will stand out to the recipients. Nice way to put their foot forward. You are a great advocate for those boys, dear.

    Thanks for sharing those adorable cards and your Milk Stout with us for T this week, dear Nancy.

  6. A super Beer Nancy, the can looks fabulous, I bet you visit the company soon!
    Great back to school cards, a fabulous idea to add the photographs and I love the cute dogs and cats and great fold on the final card.

And the cat and dog card is soooooo cute! I love the sentiment! Take care and thanks again!! Hugs, Sharon

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
