Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other craft projects. Might even share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

Happy New Year

I spent Jan 1&2 making a few new cards. Need to get a few completed before I go back to work on the 5th. Oh my break is almost over. 

The first card was from SFF010215 and PPA234. SFF was a sketch challenge posted 1/2/15 and 
PPA was a color challenge posted 1/1/15.  I am a little disappointed in the way the colors turned out on my card. The "Best Wishes" is stamped in Wisteria Wonder but it looks gray. I layers the 3 colors of ribbon to accent and add some pop.

Stamp: Best Year Ever
Ink: Wisteria Wonder
Paper: Night of Navy, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White & Shimmery Silver, scrap of Flirtatious DSP
Accessories: Night of Navy seam binding ribbon, Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon and Silver ribbon, a fishers border punch, 1 3/4 x 7/8 oval and scalloped oval punch, dimensionals, Wisteria Wonder marker

This above cards is a sketch from OWH245. I absolutely love their sketches and an going to try to make another box of cards for them again in 2015. Hopefully they will get in the mail in the next 4-5 months.

Stamp: Crazy About You (new for sale on 1/5/15)
Ink : Calypso Coral
Paper: Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White & Best Year Ever DSP (new 2015)
Accessories: Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon, Tag Maker Punch, New Flower Medallion Punch, 
Decorative Dots embossing folder, dimensionals

This last card is also from OWH244. Another wonderful sketch. Always need cards for the SCS BRAK.

Stamp: Butterfly Basics (also new 2015)
Ink; Basic Brown, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana
Paper: Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Whisper White & Best Year Ever DSP (new 2015)
Accessories: Crushed Curry Polka Dotted Ribbon, Blender Pens, Small Butterfly Punch,
