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!


Friendship's Garden Challenge Three

It's hard for me to believe that we are already on our third challenge at Friendship's Garden!  I have been so pleased with how things are going thus far!  So thank you so much for participating!

This week's challenge is simple ... Autum Colors!  You must have a leaf or leaves on your card, and use traditional fall colors.  Here is my card for this challenge ...

  • Base (kraft) card stock - The Paper Studio
  • Patterned papers - We R Memory Keepers
  • Felt leaves - Purchased at an LSS in Alabama - not sure of manufacturer
  • Vintage button and twine - my stash
  • Purple metal filigree - Michael's jewelry dept.
  • brown ink - Stampabilities
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers

  • Cricut Expression using Walk In My Garden and Elegant Edges cartridges
  • Scissors, rotary cutter, craft knife and ruler

I didn't even notice it until after I'd finished the card, but the way I turned that border and set the label on top of it, kind of looks like a Faberge' egg on a stand - isn't that cool!

I also wanted to remind you that your embellishments don't have to come from the scrapbooking store or department at your 'mega' craft store!  That filigree flower is from Michael's jewelry department and is a great focal point for a card!

Okay, so that's my card!  Please go visit Friendship's Garden and see the rest of the Garden Girls, and our guest designer's inspiration projects!  Blessings, Becky

Thank you for following my blog Becky. I am not a very good blogger, :) it is a learning process I must say. Your blog is beautiful. I love the themes and colors you use in your cards, you are great inspiration for me.
