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'!

Hi all:

Just a quick post here...
I've been having a blast blog hopping all over the place.  And I've stepped out of the "I sorta know her" comfort zone. LOL.  So, I've been subscribing to blogs that are of interest more often now.

PapertreyInk has become a new one for me.  See http://www.ipalamountain.com/2013/09/papertrey-ink-september-blog-hop/ if you'd like to join in on the blog hop fun.

And a new challenge there is to create wreaths.  Did you know that Christmas is less than three months away?! Wow! What happened to summer????

 So this little CAS card was created for that:

I've used green card stock cut into snowflakes using the MS snowflake punch, added a red grosgrain ribbon, and backed it with a layer of white card stock and patterned paper from Color Bok.  I then added a few pieces of bling to give the effect of the the wreath lit up.  I like the way it has a "glow."

Wish me luck!

Until next time
