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'!

CFC126/CAS-ual Fridays

Hi all:
Just a quick post before I call it a night....6:00am comes really fast when you "HAVE" to get up in the morning!

This card was created for CAS-ual Fridays.  The clean and simple challenge blog.  And this week the theme was to do color blocks.  And so I pulled out my underused stencils.  You know the ones you buy, buy, buy and then they just sit, sit, and sit?

I thought that I could make a quick and easy clean and simple card using them.  This card was stenciled using one by Americana Classic.  It's an 8 1/2x11 size, so it makes it easy to create it in a large scale and then cut down to size. I started out with paint and decided  that I didn't have the patience tonight to wait for it to dry and photograph.  So, out came my Stampin' Up! ink pads in Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz, along with an Ink it Up! ink pad in True Red.  I used GeorgiaPacific card stock in white for the base of the card.

This week, the winner of this challenge gets to choose the stamp or Fri-Die set of their choice from

And I have my eye on several stamps sets from their store on my wish list, LOL, so wish me luck!

More tomorrow!
Until next time,
