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!


Mojo Monday Sketch 144 Challenge

In case I haven't told you before, I really love doing sketch challenges!  You see, my tendency is to go off in my own direction and create from my heart, but sketches push me just a little bit out of my 'free and easy' comfort zone and make me concentrate on following someone else's vision.  It's a good thing, I promise!

The folks at Mojo Monday really come up with some great sketches, and this week (#144) is no different, in fact, it's lovely!  Just the picture of the sketch is pretty, so how could a card made by the sketch not be pretty?  Here's the sketch . . .

And here is the card I made based on their sketch . . .


And here are all the details . . .

  • Card base cut using Cricut, Walk in My Garden cartridge, card2 set at 5 inches.
  • Bits and pieces cut using Carl PRT-100 Rotary Cutter - straight blade.
  • "Hello" label cut using Cuttlebug and Spellbinders 'Labels One' next to smallest die, and word hello was printed on ink jet printer.
  • Embossing was done using Cuttlebug and 'Swirls' embossing folder.

  • Colored card stock is all Die Cuts With a View
  • White card stock is Georgia Pacific 110# card stock
  • Birdhouse paper is American Crafts Backyard line "Cuckoo"
  • Birdcage with black bird is American Crafts Backyard line "Tweet"
  • Striped ribbon is from American Crafts
  • White flower is Prima
  • Flat yellow beads are from my stash
  • Stickles on birdhouses is 'Star Dust'

And that is my card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge using sketch 144.  I love it, and think it is so cheery and sweet that anyone would love to find it in their mailbox!  Thanks for visiting, and come back soon!  Blessings, Becky
