Caramel Creme Cheesecake, Peaches, and Art

Hello Friends!

On our way back from the 8U State Youth Baseball Championship on Saturday (we lost to the State Champions which is an accomplishment in itself and it was a super fun game), we stopped into Peach Park.  Some of you may have been there since it is a big attraction when driving I-65 through Alabama.  The have a ton of different drinks there ranging from cokes to peach cider.  I bought this awesome coffee flavoring:

I am guessing you can buy it a lot of places, but it was the first time I have seen it.  It makes your coffee taste like it cost $6 and has zero calories.  It is my drink ticket to get in the T-party over at Elizabeth's blog.   

Here are some more drinks they have available - I really considered the peach cider....
The sell tons of peaches, peach pies, peach cobler, peach bread, peach ice cream (hubby had some) and every other type of peaches you can think of, plus they have a fabulous cafe.  They had live music on Saturday and the singer was very good.  They were selling the peaches faster than they could unload them. 
After the last game, we took our youngest grandson to the arcade in Oxford, then to wafflehouse, and then to Peach Park for ice cream and the playground - we scored a bunch of Grandparents points.  In fact, he told us we could have a ton of hugs and kisses.  

Some art for the week.  For my first card, I cased THIS card by Anna Marie who was the Featured Stamper at  If you are a Trekkie or a scottie lover you will like this one. The Scottie is from Stamping Up and the die is from Close to My Heart. 

Also the watercolor challenge for the week was Atmospheric Landscapes using THIS tutorial.  The minute she said the branch looked like a hand, I was thinking Halloween....the graveyard, bats, branch and sentiment are all from DRS Designs. 

That's all.  Happy T-day if you celebrate it.




  1. Yum, peaches in everything!
    best, mae

  2. Oh, now I have "Sweet home Alabama" in my ear.
    We saw Forrest Gump in the world-oldest open air cinema in 995 in Broome, Western Australia and in Mataranka up North it blared from a jukebox to Salt and vinegar chips, hmmm
    Thank you for the memories!
    So sad my stomach cannot take coffee anymore - sounds yummy and zero calories sounds as good.
    Oh, I can´t remember when I had a peach last time!
    YES to beaming! Oh, and Halloween sure really kinda lurks around the corner - very well done.
    Have a happy T-Day, hugs

  3. Hi Nancy. I hope you get to taste the peach cider one day. I tried some in Charleston and it didn’t have a lot of flavor, but I love the idea of a peach flavored cider. Too bad your grandsons team lost, but it is a big deal to get that far. It’s exciting. And your art is really fun this week. It isn’t too long before I’ll be thinking about fall and Halloween art. It’s exciting to think about. I hope your t day is a good one and happy week ahead. Hugs Erika

  4. Love your cards Nancy! And all the peachy goodness looks wonderful and yummy... When i was little my Grandparents took me to a place in GA that had a GIANT peach like up on a pole or something... I've never seen it again so i can't tell you where it was.... but i'd love to know.. Have you? Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  5. Very nice cards. What a lovely place to visit. I do love peach in my drinks. Sorry aobut the loss, but that is how kids learn to be good sports, and good people. Next year maybe.

  6. Isn't I-65 the road that has all those garage sales for hundreds of miles? Or do they even do that anymore?

    That flavoring sounds wonderful. I'm going to see if Spice Merchant carries it the next time I go. Sounds like you really made great grandparent brownie points. Loved seeing the photos of the peaches, the ciders, and the bottles of other drinks.

    Your cards are adorable. Loved the Scottie. I adore a good pun. But that other one is spooky and awesome. Thanks for taking us with you to Peach Park, as well as sharing your amazing cards with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nancy.

  7. I love seeing your work. Thank you for sharing it with us!

  8. Wow the peach place sounds delicious and somewhere I would love to visit. I especially love the photo of all the peaches on the truck - yum! Love your cards too, the first one is cute and your watercolours are always amazing. Happy T Day Elle/EOTC xx

  9. Too bad they lost, but like you said a great game for them. I would love all that peach stuff. Peach cobbler sounds so good. Love your cards, especially the little Scottie card. I think I would love to go to the Peach Park for ice cream. Can I come and be your grandchild? :) Happy T Day, Nancy.

    1. Yes, Sharon - come on and I will definately take you to Peach Park!

  10. Even if the GS team lost, it was still exciting for them to get there. Peach Park and granny points sounds like a good deal. Love the cards especially the Halloween themed card. Happy T Day

  11. Well those peaches are probably so yummy especially inside of a pie!! My husband loves peaches! That drink looked so yummy too! Your little scottie card is super cute and I love the sentiment with him! I'm a big Halloween lover and your scene looks amazing! Beautiful painting on that! Thanks for sharing your wonderful post my friend!

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 Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
