More Fried Green Tomatoes, Baseball, a Dragon's Eye, and Some Art

Hello friends! Happy T-day if you celebrate it!

This weekend, my youngest daughter turned 28 and she wanted to do a girls brunch.  She picked KimberLia's in downtown Prattville.  This is a picture of her sister's fried green tomato BLT and our waters.  We also had Mimosas and coffee, but, of course, I forgot to take a picture.  The jazz band they had playing was super loud and there was a party next to us of very loud people so it was hard to talk or think.  The service was very slow, but the food was good.  We ended up having coffee across the street just to catch up and relax. These waters are my ticket to T-day over at Elizabeth's blog. 

Baseball tournaments are in full swing this week - we have 1-2 games every night this week except Wednesday.  This is the banner for our oldest Grandson's team.
One of the mothers is a photographer and very good at making banners. 

I squeezed in some art this week too - here a a few of the cards I made.

This one was inspired by THIS  notebook.  I sent it to my dragon loving grandson. 

This was my daughter's birthday card.  She loves vintage, flowers, and Harry Potter, so I wrapped the flowers in Harry Potter newspaper. 

This one was done for two watercolor challenges on - one was funky butterflies and one was loose backgrounds. 
Hope you have a fabulous rest of the week!  




  1. Happy birthday to your daughter! Sounds like a good birthday party despite the slow service.
    best, mae at

  2. I so would like to try green fried tomatoes!
    Sad about the loud place, though. I´d go nuts....
    1-2 games every night?! That sounds like stress ;-)
    Beautiful, both, the book and your work.
    And the card, very beautiful.
    "Enjoy Today" and happy T-Day, hugz

  3. Glad you had a great celebration for your 'baby' daughter, even if it was loud. Hope the games all go well for your grandson's team. Love your cards, and especilaly the idea of Harry Potter newspaper, lovely! Have a great week, stay well and happy, hugs, Valerie

  4. Happy birthday to your daughter Nancy. Love your cards, that red dragon one especially. And I do love a bit of baseball. Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xx

  5. I've never eaten fried green tomatoes, you don't get them in our country. Hopefully I'll come to the USA again, then I'll try it... Your cards are lovely! Happy birthday to your youngest daughter!
    All the best and happy T-day 🌻🌼🌻!

  6. I don't like it when a place is so loud that you can't talk with each other.
    The card you made for your daughter's birthday is truly beautiful as are the others, but this one stood out for me. Just beautiful.

  7. Sorry the birthday girl had to put up with a noisy crowd but the BLT sounds good, even to this vegetarian.

    LOVE the cards you made, especially the one for your daughter. I almost missed the key I was so caught up in that newspaper. I loved the butterflies, too.

    What a week. You will be glad when baseball season is over, but I sure like the banner the lady made.

    Thanks for sharing your cards, your grandson's banner, and your food and water with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nancy.

  8. Nancy always beautiful cards... I had Mimosas after a Hot Air Balloon ride in Albuquerque , NM, and my parents and grandparents LOVED fried green tomatoes but not this Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  9. I do love a BLT but never had fried green tomatoes, I will try one if I ever see it on a menu.
    Love your cards, gorgeous flower card and butterflies
    Thanks for your visit earlier. Jan S

  10. What a wonderful grandparent to attend all your grandchildren's games. They will remember and appreciate that!
    Love all your cards. They are so creative and I love how unique they are to the recipient.
    Happy Belated Tea Day,

  11. So many great cards, the dragons eye is amazing and so is your little bouquet of flowers :). Wonderful colours with the loose watercolouring and the butterflies. xx

  12. Happy birthday to your daughter! Your cards turned out amazing Nancy! I love that fun dragon eye for your grandson! You're so creative 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
