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'!

Challenge at Brown Sugar Blog

Hi friends:

Just wanted to quickly share a post of a  card created for a friend recently.

It's a step card. Which I find so easy to make (and you don't have to do a lot of measuring!)

I had this paper for such a long time, I can't even begin to tell you honestly what the name of it is, or who makes it.  But apparently, I 'hoarded' it...because there were only three sheets of the same paper still attached to each other (in plastic no less - LOL).  It's double sided, so it was perfect to make a side step card.  I added a birdcage/gazebo to the front, along with several little flowers and leaves from Spellbinders. The patterns are so "busy" by themselves that I didn't think that it needed a lot more embellishment.

And the more that I think about it.....I think that I held onto this paper because I think the pattern on both sides make it very useful for a male or female card.Which I don't find very often.  Leaves on one side, and a sorta plaid on the other side.  Not a dark blue, not a very light blue, but just the RIGHT blue!  Masculine and Feminine.  I just love it!

The patterns look really nice together don't you think?
