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!


Finally! Time for a Challenge - or two!

Hi Folks!  Things have been kind of crazy around here lately!  Not only have I just started a new card making challenge blog, but the last two weekends I have spent long 12 - 14 hour days working my booth at a craft show in the mountains a little over an hour north of here.  It was so much fun, and I think fairly successful!  It was amazing how some people walked right by my goods, and  others stood and went through everything and drooled ... a few even bought some things!  But all this has left little time for crafting other than for design team assignments! 

But not any more!  Today I'm here to share a card I made for two challenges:
And here is my card based on both challenges ...

And here are the details ...

  • Card stock - The Paper Studio (kraft)
  • Base patterned paper - Pink Paislee
  • Two other patterned papers - My Minds Eye
  • Image - Flickr
  • Ribbon - Offray (Walmart)
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers
  • Leaf - Purchased on vacation at a scrapbook store - don't know name of manufacturer
  • Stickles 'Platinum'

Tools Used:
  • Cricut Expression and Elegant Edges cartridge
  • Computer and ink jet printer
  • Rotary cutter, scissors, craft knife and ruler

I think this is a cute card, and the image is just adorable!  Thanks for visiting today, and please come back soon!  Blessings, Becky
