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 Papers Challenges

Hi all:

Playing catch up with some of the challenges over at http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/.

Use buttons

Oriental theme Sketch

Round  those corners 

Again, I think that there is a conspiracy against me concerning my computer and camera.  For some reason all of the pics want to come in horizontal.  Sigh, again I must call on my son who will no doubt reprimand me for some weird thing that I've done to the computer and camera AGAIN.

Until next time...keep scrappin'!

Sketch, Color, Create Series: 11/30/2014

Hi everyone:

I'm here again with another entry into the Sketch, Color, Create Series featured at Scraps of Color.

You can find it here:  http://scrapsofcolor.ning.com/group/sketch-color-create

This sketch is from an unknown artist and was used as the basis for inspiration.

This is what I came up with

If you know me, you know how much I love pencil sketches.  Love this one so much that I chose to do a pair.

I love getting practice in whenever I can. I think that's why I like these challenges.

Until next time

MFP:SWAT Challenge #120

Hi all:

Just a quick post.

Since I seem to be all caught up on projects  that were due, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things and join in on the fun at some of my favorite sites.

This quick and simple card was created for Mark's Finest Papers' Sketch With a Twist.  The twist was to create a winter card.

This is the sketch we were to follow

Here is my card

The card was made using just a half of sheet of green cardstock and a half sheet of light blue.  I used the Sizzix Evergreen Tree pop-up die to create the tree, a Martha Stewart snowflake punch (I used dimensional dots to raise them up), and the sentiment which has been stamped using American Crafts pigment in Cricket.  The snow "drifts" were made by just curving the cuts in different places in the white cardstock.  Voila! Done!

Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time
