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 "What's The Point?" and Inspirational Card Sketches # 50

I just love it when I can get two challenges in on one card!  This is one of those times, and I really like the card - it would be great for a teacher, a child, a friend, just about anyone!  The challenges were . . .

Daring Card Makers "What's the Point?" challenge is to make a card with points, such as a star, arrow, or even pins with points.

And Inspirational Card Sketches was sketch #50 below . . .




And here is my take on both challenges . . .







And all the info . . .

Yellow cardstock - DCWV 'Brights' stack
Glittered orange cardstock - DCWV 'Citrus' stack

Patterned paper:
  • Sassafras Lass 'Vintage Yummy' pleasantly puzzled front and back
  • Sassafras Lass 'Vintage Yummy' blossomed front and back
Versamark Ink

Ranger 'evergreen' embossing powder

K&Co. Jewel

Green bakers twine from stash

Cricut Info:
  • Card base cut using Walk In My Garden cartridge, card 2 set on 4 3/4"
  • Stars cut using Plantin SchoolBook cartridge set on 3, 3 1/4 and 3 1/2" sizes.  I glued the large one to the card, popped up the center star with foam squares, and scored the points ot the top star to give it an Amish Barn Star look and glued it onto the top, glue on edges only.
  • Tag cut on Plantin SchoolBook cartridge, tag 1 set at 2 1/4".
Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a great weekend, Becky
