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: Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV 1.12.2014

Hi crafty folks:
I don't know what's wrong with me.  But it's 5:00 am Sunday morning. And I haven't been to sleep all night. I'm "hyper" I guess.  Not sleepy at all. YET! But when it's time to get up, I'll be sleeping like a bear in hibernation though.  And come Monday morning when I have to get up and go to work, I'll be meaner than a junkyard dog I suppose...from lack of sleep of course.

But after I've finished this post, I will most certainly take myself off to bed.  So here goes....

This card was created for MFP Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV.  The technique that was taught is called the Faux Label Technique.  You can find a quick tutorial here - http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/page/faux-lable-technique.  I've done this for several cards before and it looks great even when you cut the pieces into squares (tiles).


Unfortunately, I think that my grand"monster" has gotten into all of my markers. And the caps were not on all of them. So you know what that means right? At least 50 dried up markers - and yes, some of them Copics! If I were an emotional woman, I probably would've cried.  But I wanted  to get the card done and so I pushed on with what I had in mostly bright colors.  Didn't turn out too bad, but I'll definitely give it another try when I make a run to the store to buy several more packages of markers in the next few days.

Anyway, off to bed I go
