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!


Unscripted Sketches Challenge # 75 - World Card Making Day!!!

Happy World Card Making Day!!!  Doesn't it sound cool just saying that???  I'm hoping you've found a forum or group or LSS or SOMETHING where you can spend the day making cards on this special occasion!  Two years ago I hosted a day of challenges on but last year on WCMD I had just lost my Dad and was sick as a dog with the flu, and didn't even give it a thought!  So it's really good to be back in the swing of things and participating once again. 

The Unscripted Sketches Design Team is proud to be a part of this day, but have not scheduled any special challenges (aside from our usual sketch) because we have bigger things planned two weeks from today for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Please join us every week, but especially that week for some fun surprises!

Okay, on to this week's sketch . . .

And here is my take on the sketch . . .

And here are all of the details . . .

Product Info:
  • Base card stock is Die Cuts With a View.  The red card stock is from my stash, and I don't remember the brand.
  • Patterned papers are both sides of Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 'peppermint twist'
  • Image is from a clip art software
  • Chipboard tag is from Basic Grey 'chipboard hardware'
  • Silk ribbon is from an online store that is no longer in business
  • Image was printed using a stamp from Walmart, Versamark Ink, and Ranger green embossing powder.

Tips, Tools and Techniques:
  • Card base was cut using Cricut Expression, Walk in My Garden cartridge, card2 set at 5"
  • Patterned paper base was cut using Cricut Expression, Walk in My Garden cartridge, card1 set at 4 3/4"
  • Edges of papers, image and tag were inked using brown ink.

This is the first Christmas card I've made so far this year, and I'm just beginning to get wound up and ready to make lots more.  Have you started making your Christmas cards yet???  Blessings, Becky

Hi there, Becky! How are you? I was so excited to see Camellia Cottage on the WCMD blog hop list. Love, love your Christmas card. I just adore that paper line, and the vintage image you used is fabulous. I also really like how you tied on the sentiment tag. Thanks for sharing and happy WCMD.
