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!


Card Patterns Sketch # 125

Do you know how some times, although you start out with a great plan (say a sketch for instance) for a card project,  but that project takes on a life of it's own and before you know it, it barely resembles the plan/sketch??? That's what happened with this project today!  If you look really hard you can see the sketch there, but I'm afraid it's not an exact representation.

And I hope that's okay with the folks over at Card Patterns, cause that's just how it rolls today!  But I love the card!  Here is their sketch #125 . . .

And here is my card based (loosely) on their sketch . . .

  • Base (kraft) card stock - The Paper Company (JoAnn)
  • Patterned papers - Green floral 'Graphic 45', Yellow checked 'My Minds Eye'
  • Image - Little Birdie Blessings
  • Gems - Prima
  • Stickles 'Platinum' - Ranger Ink
  • Pink card stock - DCWV
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers
  • Pink Ribbon - my stash

Tools Used:

  • Computer and Ink Jet Printer
  • Scissors, craft knife, ruler and rotary cutter

  • Pink sentiment frame:  EE cartridge 'Snwflk-s' set at 1 1/2"

And there you have it!  While it's not exactly like the sketch, I know it's there, and I hope you can see it there, too!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope to see you again very soon!  Blessings, Becky
