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!

Hello!  Here I am back with another card that fits the bill for two challenges!  I loved the sketch over at CPS (Card Positioning Systems) this week, and as I was planning the card, I realized the sketch would work perfectly for Little Red Wagon's challenge this week to make an anniversary card!   Here is the sketch from CPS . . .
