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!


CPS 230 "You Make Me Smile"

This week's sketch over at Card Positioning Systems is fairly simple, and that's what threw me for a little loop right at first, but then inspiration struck and I got right to work!  Here is their sketch for this week . . .

And here is my card based on the sketch . . .

Supply List:

  • Card base - Stampabilities (Hobby Lobby)
  • Patterned paper - Fancy Pants Designs
  • Image - found on Flickr
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers
  • Felt and perle cotton - my stash

Tools Used:
  • Cuttlebug
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Classic Circles Small' and 'Scalloped Circles Small'
  • Scissors, craft knife, rotary cutter, ruler

I love this little image, which is part of a greeting card I found on Flickr.  The language on the card was unidentifiable to me, but the image is just adorable!  Thanks for visiting today . . . hope to see you back very soon!  Blessings, Becky
