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!

All About the Holly!

Last Friday was the first Friday of December, so when Daring Cardmakers published their challenge, of course it was time for the flower of the month challenge.  This month's flower is either the Narcissus or the holly.  I went with the holly.  It's all about the holly this time of year!  I am also submitting this for the 'vintage Christmas challenge over at Little Red Wagon.  Here is my card based on the challenge ...




Supplies:
  • Card stock - The Paper Studio
  • Patterned paper - Melissa Frances
  • Sentiment - SRM Stickers
  • Stickles - Ranger Industries
  • Vintage buttons and twine - my stash
  • Brown Ink - Stampabilities

Tools:
  • Computer and ink jet printer
  • Cricut Expression and Walk In My Garden Cartridge
  • Michaels scalloped circle punch
  • Craft knife, ruler, paper trimmer, scoring tool

I used another vintage Christmas card image, fussy cut around her and added brown ink for more age.  I think this is my 2nd favorite card I've made this season!

Thanks for visiting!  Becky
