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!


Whole Lotta Love Challenges Going On!!!

And I'm just loving it!  This next card is for two challenges . . .

The Just Buggin challenge for this week is to make a "Love" card, using your cricut, and

Three out of the six February Card Challenges on - theme (love), colors (red, white and pink), and product (hearts).

Here is my card based on these challenges . . .

The product info . . .
  • All cardstock is by Die Cuts With a View
  • Rhinestones by Basic Grey 'bling it'
  • Glitter is Crystal Glitter, Ultrafine Gold by Mark Enterprises.  (Side note:  The glitter looks white and sparkly in the bottle, but gold on the card.  Go figure that one out for me!)

Cricut Info:
  • Base card cut using Walk in My Garden cartridge, card 2 set on 5"
  • Red squares cut using Walk in My Garden cartridge, card 1 set on 2 1/4"
  • White doilies cut on Mothers Day 2010 cartridge, doily 2 set on 2 1/4"
  • LOVE cut on Home Accents, LOVE set on 2 1/4"
I haven't shown this one to hubby yet, so I'm thinking this may be his valentine since he's already seen the aqua one from the other day.  Stay tuned, I have another card for the Daring Card Makers and Tuesday Morning Sketches coming right up!  Blessings, Becky
