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'!

MFP/Oriental Sketch Challenge 16

Happy Sunday!

Today was a good day.  Not necessarily for me.  But then again, I guess it was!

It was a joyful celebration today at church.  Uplifting. Inspiring. And brought me some peace in my storm.  A celebration in many ways.  It's the Advent season and the pastor's sermon was "Oh! It is Jesus!"  It was something that I really needed to hear.  And I could go on and on about that subject, but I won't, it would take too long.  And for the first time in our church's history....drumroll please! There was a MARRIAGE PROPOSAL! Oh my, it was such a beautiful, beautiful moment for us all.  Shocking. Loud. Noisy. Joyous. Amazing. The soon-to-be bride was in shock!  As I sit here now, I feel teary...but a good teary, you know? We're all so happy for the couple!  They're such a sweet, sweet couple.

Ok, on to the project for Mark's Finest Papers http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/page/oriental-sketch-challenge-16-12-21-13.  You're provided a sketch to use.  And your project must use an Oriental image/character or paper that makes the card obviously oriental in nature.  Of course you can add to the sketch, switch direction, make it a square card, or add embellishments.  I really don't have a lot of things in Oriental nature, although for those of you that know me know that my great-great-great grandfather was Chinese.  So of course, I improvise.  I use whatever "feels" oriental in nature to me.  I like how this turned out.

Products used: Inkadinkado Crane wooden stamp #92127, white, red, and black card stock, Bic markers

I've  been blessed today and I hope that you have been too!
Until my next go around, 

 must use an Oriental image/character or paper that makes the card obviously oriental in nature. You can add to this sketch, switch directions, make it a square card, or add embellishments.
