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!


Flower Shaped Card…. RAK Week 4

Our Random Act of Kindness effort is in the final week. This was a great experience and I’ll continue to things like this throughout the year. I chose to make a simple flower shaped card this week. The flower is from the Cricut Hello Kitty cartridge. I used the card feature.



Father’s Day…. Same Design 3 Xs…

Well, if you’ve visited my blog before, you’re probably familiar with my infamous last minute creations. Today is one of those days. Father’s Day cards are done. Got them done pretty quickly because I’m using the “design once repeat often” methodology. At least these are all hand deliveries!



Random Act of Kindness…. Week 3

I’m on target with my third set of RAK cards. I’ve found that it’s easier to get them done if I come up with one theme and stick with that. Well got lots more to do. Just wanted to do a quicky post.



Get Well Soon...

I couldn’t stay away from the black, white, red combo. So here’s a quick Get Well card using the color scheme that I reach for more often than not.



Random Act of Kindness….Week 2

Just wanted to drop by and post my second set of RAK cards. I certainly hope they are received in the spirit in which they are given. Feels good to brighten someone’s day.

That’s it for now, but there’s more to come.

“See” ya soon…

It’s a GOOD Thing… RAK Cards…

It’s always nice to receive cards and it’s even nicer when you don’t expect it. My Sunday School class has started a Random Act of Kindness (RAK) effort to send some cards to those in need of a pick-me-up.

We’ll be sending cards for the entire month of June (and probably beyond). All in all, it’s a good thing. Yep, it’s more blessed to give than to receive!



2S4Y 1st Annual Ultimate Card SHOWDOWN…

OK… Here’s the deal. I’m in search of my creativity. Seems like forever since I’ve done a card. That’s because my creativity just up and left! Didn’t even say goodbye! So to assist me on this scavenger hunt, I stopped by the 2 Sketches site for their 1st Annual Card Showdown. I really love the sketch. It was a challenge, but here’s my contribution...
