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!


The Kraft Journal "Father's Day" Challenge

It is time once again for The Kraft Journal's Make It Monday!  This week's challenge is to make a project with a Father's Day theme.  Here is my card for this week's challenge . . .

And here are the details:

The Supply List:

  • Kraft card stock from The Paper Studio
  • Patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety
  • Red card stock is DCWV
  • Stickles 'platinum' and 'diamond'
  • SRM Stickers sentiments
  • Image found on Flickr
  • Feather from Hobby Lobby
  • Ranger Glossy Accent

The Tools:
  • Cricut Expression and Walk In My Garden and Elegant Edges cartridges
  • EK Success medium corner rounding punch
  • Scissors, craft knife, ruler
  • Computer and ink jet printer

And that was how it came about!  I actually made the card on Monday but it was today before I could get to Hobby Lobby to get the feathers!  You could tell the original card the image was scanned from had a red feather on it, and I wanted to add that dimension, and whimsy!  When I look at this card I think of the song by Rodney Atkins called "Watching You".  It's a very cute song, and the words of the chorus fit this card perfectly.  If you want to see all the words, you can click on the 'Watching You' above, but  here are the words to the chorus . . .

He said, "I’ve been watching you, dad ain’t that cool?
I’m your buckaroo, I wanna be like you.
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are.
We got cowboy boots and camo pants
Yeah, we’re just alike, hey, ain’t we dad?
I want to do everything you do.
So I’ve been watching you."

Thanks for visiting today, and please come back soon!  Blessings, Becky
