Thanks for visiting!

Welcome! This is the place where I share my artsy and crafty projects. I am an evolving artist these days ... finding myself enjoying less of the cards and mini albums that I have made for years, and turning to art journaling and more artistic endeavors. I have always enjoyed some craft or other, and some of my earliest memories of my mother helping me make paper dolls and other crafts. I am now in my 60's and finding myself more passionately enjoying creating beautiful things and learning new skills and techniques and products.

While you are here I hope you will find inspiration and ideas for making your own projects, however any images or projects you find here are my personal property and should not be used for your own monetary gain, or for contests or challenges. Thank You!


CPS # 84 - A gift for you!

Just a quick post to tell you about my entry for CPS's sketch 84 this week. I loved that sketch, and since I was making Christmas Cards anyway, I couldn't resist making a card that's also a holder for a gift card.

The base is Bazzill cardstock, the patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye (LOVE their stuff!) Be Merry - Trim the Tree. The envelope is from an old kit of Anna Griffin stuff I got on QVC years ago. I punched a hole in the flap of the envelope so I could thread the ribbon through and it would hold more securely. Add some brown ink around the edges, a tag, and a bit of organza ribbon and you've got a great way to give out those gift cards this Christmas.

Don't forget this Saturday is World Card Making Day, and I hope to post a picture very soon of the RAK I'll be giving away over on during the challenges I'm hosting this weekend. We'd love to have you join us! Blessings y'all! Becky
