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'!

Mark's Finest Papers FOSTV99

Hi all:

I'm entering this Thanksgiving card into the challenge for http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/page/friends-of-speedy-tv-challenge-99-thanksgiving.  I see so many turkey images used on cards that I decided to be a little bit different.   I've had this image for a long time and never got around to using it.  So this was the perfect challenge.

Yes, it's already that time of year! Summer didn't stick around long....sigh.  Pumpkins, turkey, sweet potato pie, the changing weather and  leaves, the beautiful colors of Fall.  That's the good stuff right?? And I usually look forward to big family dinners and love the smells and warmth.  However, I'm not really in the mood to make a really big dinner this year.  I'm feeling quite lazy about the whole thing.  I  guess my family would think it strange if I decide to not make a 30lb turkey with all of the traditional trimmings....What I'd like to do is make the turkey and stuffing, some kind of potato dish, a vegetable and dessert and call it a day.  But somehow, I don't think that's going to happen! We shall see......

The image used was a free digi.  And I used Copics, Prism, and Bic markers to color the scarecrow.  I also used scrap pieces of cardstock to back the image and added a piece of satin ribbon to finish it off.

See you around soon!
