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!


Daring Cardmakers Sketch

Me again! I told you I was working on this card, and it's now finished - my entry for the DCM sketch dare this week. What do you think???

The base cardstock is from Bazzill and the green polkadotted paper is from the same old Wild Asparagus stack as the previous card.

The flowers are from Prima, the ribbon is from Michaels, the chipboard butterfly is Scenic Route and covered with Sassafras Lass 'Lil Brudders' paper. All the buttons are from the huge bag I recently bought at a yard sale.

The verse is one of my new favorites "Flowers whisper what words cannot say." Wouldn't this just be perfect to send to a friend or loved one who is going through a hard time and needs a pick me up or an encouraging word!

Okay, that's all from me for a day or two. I've got to get this house picked up, and dinner made. Tomorrow has been chosen as the day my mom and I make our annual pilgrimmage to the N. Georgia mountains to buy apples, sweet potatoes and cabbage, so I won't be making any cards until Friday or Saturday. Have a blessed day! Becky

Love all the different layers on this card, nice and bright also. What a great find at a yard sale, a big bag of buttons!
