So glad you chose to stop by!

I hope to use this blog to share some of my handmade cards as well as some of my scrapbook pages and maybe a few pics here and there that may or may not make it to a scrapbook page.

Scrapping for me is simply a fun hobby that I don't do often enough. More often than not, I'm a collector of all things scrap... i.e. tools, paper, embellishments...

Now to become motivated... Maybe this blog is just the way to do it...

Enjoy and come back SOON!


Thinking of YOU... CP Sketch #3

As I was doing my usual surfing, I came across another Card Sketch site called Card Patterns. I had a little extra time this week, so I thought I’d join in with them. I need to build up my card supply so participating in the sketches serves a twofold purpose: I get to have fun & and I get to focus on a goal.

It’s a WIN-WIN situation…


Enjoy the Little Things … 2S4Y Laura #20

Here’s a card based on 2 Sketches 4 You Laura #20. I loved the sketch. I chose to make a birthday card for my mother. If I keep up with the challenges, I’ll have my cards done well before I need to send them. This is for an “end of March” birthday… I'll even have time to make some of the miscellaneous cards that I need to do. Could this be the end of my procrastination? Only time will tell.



MILESTONES...2S4Y Kazan's #20

Here’s card based on 2 Sketches 4 U - Kazan’s Sketch #20. I made this one just in the nick of time since the deadline is tomorrow. I love to combine black with nice vibrant colors. In addition to combining colors that I love, I also got a chance to use my new Fiskars’ punch and some new digital brushes.

Sounds like a good day to me.



Feb ’09 Valentine’s Day Cards

Here are a couple of Valentine’s Day cards that I made. I chose simple designs (as I do with most of my cards). I said that I wouldn’t use the standard Valentine’s colors for the cards, but in the end I stayed with the familiar. One day I’m going to step outside the box and get fancy with color… But today is not the day.

Until next time,



Have a WONDERFUL Bday … 2S4Y Laura #19

2 Sketches 4 You has really provided lots of inspiration for this year’s cards. Here’s another February card that must get mailed today. The card is based on the 2S4Y SKETCH titled Laura's Sketch #19.

I decided to flip the orientation and change the shape slightly. This one was fun and I’ve gotten another birthday card ready to go. Can’t ask for more than that.



Simple Happy Birthday Card & Matching Box… 2S4Y Kazan #19

I’ve got a couple of February cards that I need to make so headed over to the 2 Sketches 4 You site to see this week’s sketch. Kazan’s Sketch #19 was perfect for this quick and simple card. Since the card was so simple, I decided to make a matching box and fill it with candy… The box was a free Pazzles file that I got from one of the online Pazzles’ Yahoo groups.

Well, if you haven’t guessed by the look of the card and the Mike & Ike Tropical candy, this card is for an early teen. On the inside of the card, I adhered a small envelope with a gift card inside.

That’s it for now.
