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!


Mojo Monday # 124 and More Amethyst

Wow!  I almost let this card slip by without posting about it.  I made it earlier in the week, set it aside and promptly forgot about it.  I had originally made it for Mojo Monday Week 124, but when I found it I realized it would also work for Daring Cardmakers dare to make something in the color of February birthstone - amethyst.

Below is the sketch for Mojo Monday . . .

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

The product info for this card is really easy, mostly because almost everything was in my stash!  That includes the pink polka dot ribbon, the flower, button and both the striped and heart patterned paper, of which there were only small pieces, and no pattern or manufacturer info.

That said, here's the rest of the info:
  • Cardstock is from DCWV cardstock stack 'pastels'
  • Digital image is from PC Crafters
  • Rub-on is from Melissa Frances
Cricut Info:
  • Base of card cut using Walk in My Garden, card 2 set @ 5"
That's it!  How easy was that?  It's a windy, dribbly day here, but they say  the sun should shine through sometime this afternoon and tomorrow should be bright and shiny.  I hope you have a bright and shiny weekend, too!  Blessings, Becky
