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'!

CAS-ual Fridays

Good evening crafty people!

Today was "one of those days."  I was pooped out.  And took a much needed nap after work.  That "nap" lasted until 9:00pm!  Now, I'm wide awake and have "scrapping" on the brain.

And so I decided to get a few cards before I take myself back off to bed.

The card below was created for a Clean and Simple challenge blog  at http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/. The challenge for this week was to use a word to describe hopes for the new year.  My hope is to have more FAITH.  In all things.  Whether it be family, friends, my job, etc.  I'm going to try to do my best to overcome the obstacles.  And remember that "all things are possible," and you just have to have "faith the size of a mustard seed."

 And here is my card:


I used a Lifestyle Crafts roses embossing folding, sentiment, and 
scrap ribbon to complete my clean and simple design.

What's your word for the New Year?  I have more than one.  Not resolutions, but goals.  For a better ME.

Until next time

Hi Renee! I love your card!!! That embossing is gorgeous! And the simple black and white is so elegant!

Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet words on my swan card. I love purple too! I use WAY too much of it..in almost everything I make! I even have a Purple passion on the MFP ning site I write every week. That's okay because it ROCKS!!
