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 Challenges (3/28/14)

Hi all:

This card was created for the Inspirational Challenge (#56) over at Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. The pictures below were to be used as inspiration for creating your project:

The pictures reminded me that Spring would eventually get here!  It's been a really long Winter here and frankly, I've had enough of the cold and snow.

I wanted to experiment with using my Faber Castell Gelatos differently, other than using them in my art journals.  And so I decided to use them along with a stamp.  This is the result


 The second card was created for the challenge at Tutorial Time on Speedy TV. The technique tutorial this week is to create sponged sunrays.

Sentiment says: Everything will be OK, even if we can't see what OK is yet.

Can you tell how ready I am for bright sunshine, warm weather, and maybe a little beach time???? LOL

Until next time
