About Me

Hello! I have been crafting ever since I can remember. I am retired now, and have gotten more into making handmade cards. I have also done some scrapbooking and a couple orders for wedding invitations. I really enjoyed doing them! Also have a few baby items I have made, used to sew all the time, but the cards have taken over now!

Welcome to my craft room.

This is the place where I keep track of the cards I have made.

Glad you could stop by and take a look.

Christmas Slider Card

This is my challenge card for http://incywincydesigns.blogspot.com/ Challenge 15.

This is the first time I have done a Slider card, used a dark green linen cardstock. I also used Tracey's free pinstripe paper and poinsettias, from http://www.fredshesaid.blogspot.com/

I don't use a lot of embellishments on cards, so only used a few peel offs, and some glitter glue, as I thought the flowers where enough of an embellishment.

Monochrome Christmas

Just decided at the last minute to do the Challenge card from http://allsortschallenge.blogspot.com/ I am trying to build up my supply of Christmas cards, so far have 2 made!

Krafty Kards Christmas Theme Challenge

Well, this is my first Christmas card made this year, and probably would not of started yet, if Liz had not done this challege!! So I guess I am ahead this year! hehe.

Also is the first time I did any stitching on a card, as I am too lazy to pull out the sewing machine....but I did manage to do it today! ( cause I do have some sewing to do). Not so sure it was a good thing to do, cause the thread kept getting jammed for some reason, but I did manage to do it.

Made this card using some backing papers I got from Handmade Cards.com, I went crazy last year and bought all her Christmas Kit downloads, but did not get to use them, but I am going to use them this year!

Mouse and Cheese

This is my entry for the Wild Animal, Challenge 13 at http://incywincydesigns.blogspot.com/
I received this stamp in the mail today, from Liz at Crafty Salon, which by the way was so kind of her! So I just had to use it on my challenge card. It is also the first time I have ever coloured a stamped image, I used watercolour pencils.

Sister's Scrapbook

Here are some of the pages for the scrapbook that I have gotten done, still need to add more embellishments to some of the pages yet, but thought I would wait until I have every page done!

Have been working on a Scrapbook for my sister for her 55th birthday. Some of the photos are not quite showing their true colours. Anyway it has taken awhile trying to figure out how to group, what pictures together, trying to use all the photos we have. Her daughter went looking for the photos while her Mom was at work, and she is the one who wanted me to make up a book for her, she has been able to come and help me a couple of times, so that was a help as I need to get it done before the end of next week and still have some more pages to go!!


Made a quick Anniversary card, cause some people wait till the last minute to order one...lol
Used some beautiful scrapbook paper with red roses, for background, insert and a 6x6 square envelope.
