Woot! Big Announcement & a Second Design Team

Hello everyone!

I am soooo excited to announce that I have joined the design team over at Creative Corner Challenges!! I will be providing a creation for them every other week.  New challenges are posted every Friday and I hope that you will come and join along with us!

I am really excited to join this team as it is led by my friend Mel B. in Germany!  We "met" through a cardmaking group and have become awesome friends ever since.

This week's theme was "Girly" - and what screams more "girly" than pearls, lace and GLITTER?????

Here is my card:


Supplies used:

Close to My Heart: For Always Paper Pack, Glitter Paper, Colonial White Card Base, "Your Own Kind of Wonderful" Stamp Set, Ruby Ink

From stash: pearls, lace ribbon

Other: Memento Black Ink, ATG Adhesive, Tim Holtz Distress Ink

Until next time, keep crafting!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #69


I just love being on this Design Team!  It is really getting me to create on a regular basis (and update my blog too!). 

Here was our sketch  and what I created this week:

I decided to grab what I had left of Ivy Lane paper to make this card.  The colors I chose are Hollyhock, Gypsy and New England Ivy.  The stamp set is from the new Close to My heart book and is called "Your Own Kiind of Wonderful".

I chose to make it a birthday card (I can never have enough of those on hand!!)

Inside of card

I used our new ShinHan twin touch markers to color some white pearls too!  I love that I can buy basic white pearls and color them to whichever color I choose!

I hope you enjoy this week's creation for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!

I will be back on Thursday with my card for my NEW design team :). (Of course I am staying with AHSC as well!!). Stay tuned!

I Love Custom Orders!


I just love when I get custom orders with creative freedom!  Since my craft room is still in disarray, I had limited access to supplies, so I had to get SUPER creative!

I was asked to make a 50th Anniversary card and had so much fun doing so!  These types of cards are super special to me as it is for such a great occasion!  You rarely see couples making it to 50 years these days!  I was also asked a while back to make a 100th Birthday card - talk about a SPECIAL occasion!

Here were my creations:

For the Birthday Card, I made an easel card!  I had never made one before, so it was a lot of fun!

I am always posting new pictures on my Facebook page - I would love to see you there too!

I hope you enjoyed my creations!  See you next time!
