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!


Scrapbook Trends Challenge - No Pink or Red and SophistiCats Challenge - Love

The challenge over at Scrapbook Trends cards blog this week was to make a 'lovey dovey' valentines type card, but with no pink or red in it.  When I read that, I knew exactly what paper I wanted to use - don't you just love it when that happens?  And SophistiCats challenge this week is to make a 'love' card, so this card fits there, too!  Here is my card . . .

Isn't that cute cherub the sweetest thing???  There's another one behind the bow that is just as cute, but the bow had to go somewhere!  Here's all the info

Products List:
  • Aqua cardstock and cherub/text cardstock both from Die Cuts With a View 'Be Mine' cardstock stack
  • Seam Binding from Donna @ Bluebird Lane
  • Bling is from Prima e. line Pearls and Crystals
  • 'Love' rub-on from an old (very old) set from Walmart
Cricut Info:
  • Base card and cherub paper both cut on Walk in My Garden cartridge.  Card 2 set on 5" and card 1 set on 4 1/2"
  • Frame cut on Home Accents Solutions Cartridge @ 3 1/4"
I'm so loving this card, and I hope you like it, too!  This one may actually go to my hubby for Valentines.  Then again it may go on my Etsy shop!  Now, I've got a pesky squirrel to go run off of my bird feeder, blessings folks!  Becky
