Father's Day

Navy Cardstock, Cuttlebug Swirls Folder, Evergreen Cardstock, Papertrey Ink Pond of Life, Brown American Crafts Ribbon New England Ivy Ink, Sweet Leaf Ink, Desert Sand Ink

Hey everyone....

Still diligently trying to create, take a picture, post, and get into the rhythm. I am still blog surfing my favorite papercrafting designers and must admit that I am so envious that they are on Design Teams and getting work published. I will get there..I just need to keep trudging and keep believing.. This is a card that I put together super quickly for Father's Day. My husband is not really impressed by any sort of artwork, so I knew it didn't need to be much, but I wanted something worth noting. Know what I mean?

I have another one to post later.... see, I'm getting better already!

Have a great day!

Starting Fresh....

Just a little more of my background. I have been a papercrafting fan ever since I attended my first Creative Memories "party" in 1997. From there I progressed from fun albums to my wedding albums and family heritage albums (which are all complete, by the way!). Then came Stampin Up!..., a stint as a demonstrator with Creative Memories, then my introduction to Close to my Heart. I've now grown to love so many products, companies, and designers. Where I used to be brand loyal for my craft, I am now "okay to blend". A big step for me...:) I'm going to show a little of what I've done recently. I'm so hoping that this blog allows me to be a little more diligent in creating and sharing. Something I want to do, but don't make a priority. Say a prayer for me that this will change! :) Thanks for taking a minute to support me.

The picture is one of an altered clipboard that I made for one of my son's teachers at Christmas time. It's just some great DP, various ribbon, chipboard letters, and glossy mod-podge.

Have a great day!


Technical Difficulties...

Bear with me....I'm getting the hang of this!
