About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Father's Day

Hi there good people! Just wanted to make sure that I did what I said that I would do...I promised myself that I would post something, anything, if only a few words at least once a month. So here goes: To all of the fathers out there; the men who are biological fathers, adoptive father's, uncles that help some mom take care of children, a big brother, anyone who has the Daddy role - Happy Father's Day!!!! May God continue to bless you, and keep you, and provide you strength; give you mercy, hope, and joy that you desire. I hope that the Lord continues to walk with you and make you the best kinda man that you can hope to ever be!

And in honor of all of you dads out there, I've created this card. I used black, white, and kraft cardstock, with a black and white patterned paper. I also used the Martha Stewart crown punch, along with the (I think) Coming up Roses border and corner punch from Fiskars. (Don't you just love the all in one punches??) The sentiment is from a stamp that I - yes, I'll say it, CUT up! It originally said "You are amazing Dad"....but I cut it apart (so now I have two separate phrases!) You are amazing and Dad. It was a quickly made card, but I really like how it turned out. Even though I used a flower punch, it still looks 'masculine.'

Thanks for looking!
