About Me

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: SWAT Challenge 91

Hi all:

My procrastinating daughter told me that she needed a birthday card five minutes before she was to go out the door to meet a friend.  "Nothing fancy, but I know that she liked the last birthday card that you made for her," she says.  No pressure right? LOL

And since I've been trying to keep up with the Challenge Blogs that I like to frequent, I decided that I'd add another card to the SWAT Challenge at Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.  So, this is what I came up with.

This week's challenge twist was to create a pocket card.  To finish off the card I added a Prima cloth flower with a button to coordinate with the textured cardstock.  The tags inserted into the pocket say Happy - Birthday - Friend.  It actually did come together pretty quickly. And I scored a quick kiss on the cheek on her way out the door. Worth it!

Until next time

Prima flower, textured card stock, Crate Paper Party Day patterned card stock, MS daisy chain punch, GeorgePacific white card stock, Kaiser Craft mini alphas, swirl stamp from Glimmer Screens
