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!


Tuesday Morning Sketches and Die Cuts R Us Challenges

Once again I am 'piggy backing' challenges here, but they just fit so well I couldn't resist it!  Die Cuts R Us' challenge this week is a color challenge based on My Minds Eye 'Lush' line, and we were asked to create a project using any one color from that line (black, blue, brown, pink and red) plus white.  The Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge is to make any project other than the usual card.  It could be an altered project, 3-D project - basically anything BUT a card.  Here is my take on both challenges . . .


And here is all the info . . .

Product List:
  • Patterned paper for purse is My Minds Eye Ooh La La "All Dressed Up"
  • Patterned paper for flower tag is My Minds Eye Ooh La La "Lah Dee Dah"
  • Crocheted flower is from My Minds Eye "Laundry Line"
  • White ribbon and pom-pom trim is from Dollar Tree
  • Half pearls are from Basic Grey 'opaline'
  • Rhinestone and jump rings are from my stash
  • Flap of purse is held with a velcro dot
Cricut Info:
  • All cuts were made using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge
  • Purse is purse2
  • Flower tag is flower

Wouldn't this be a lovely gift for Mother's Day???  Thanks for visiting, Becky
