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'!

Simon Says Use Heather's Sketch & 613 Avenue Create Challenges

Hi - all my crafty friends:

It's time for another challenge at http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com.  This week we get to

Use Heather’s Sketch  

heathers sketch 2

Challenge #47 - Anything Goes 

Optional Twist: Create Your Own Challenge

In this challenge you use 1-3 items from all of the columns

And this is the card that I came up with

 I actually did two versions of the card in which I didn't add Glossy Accents, lace, and the flower on the left.  I just really liked the colors that I chose (I used a very similar layout and colors on another card) 
and just love, love that Inkadinkado rose stamp.  
I think that I prefer the second version  better.

Unfortunately, I don't have a recipe to give you for the making of this card.  I'm trying to use up the bits and pieces that are scattered all over the place and my room.  But all the same, I like how it turned out.

What do you think?  

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous  Simon Says Stamp Store and 7 Bugaboo digis is up for grabs at http://avenue613.blogspot.com/2013/11/challenge-47-anything-goes-optional.html if you win!

Ta-ta lovely ladies!
