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!

Moxie Fab World - Taintor-Tude Challenge

Once again I have a card for a challenge on the Moxie Fab World blog.  The challenge this time is to make a card inspired by Anne Taintor's hilarious, and very creative items which are sold in stationery stores and gift shops all over the place!  You can see a number of examples HERE and I think you'll love them.  Here is my take on the challenge . . . 










And the info for this card is very simple . . .

Grey cardstock:  Bazzill

Black cardstock:  DCWV

Image from clipart software

And my one concession to 'bling' is the tiny dot of platinum Stickles on the brooch on the lady's collar.

I love this card!  It's so totally not me, but it just flowed from my fingertips, and I want to thank blog hostess Cath for putting a challenge out there that made me get away from my usual 'more is more' style of cardmaking and lean more to the humorous side of the craft.  Thanks for visitng, and until next time, blessings, Becky

I love the "perfect" amount of bling, and where you placed it is FANTASTIC! Wonderful funny card, it made me smile. I think I'm going to love this project too, when it isn't at all my style.
