About Me

My photo
I am 45 YO, am married to my VERY Best friend. My husband is my support and inspiration. We have 7 beautiful kids, all grown and on their own except the youngest two boys who are both 15. I have loved Art my entire life. As a person, I consider myself to be a lifelong learner and a constant work in progress. My favorite saying is: It's never too late to be who you might have become!-Author Unknown.

Some WIPS!! (Works In Progress)

Both are Gate fold cards, wow, I can't believe I didn't even open the green one for pics, something to look forward to later!  NOW IT'S STAMPING TIME!

It's almost that time of Year!

Learning to stamp the edges of my cardstock, what a difference that makes!

 Oh how I love my Cricut!

These are Tea Bag Books, they are a blast to make, decorate and give4 away, they make awesome gifts!

As you can see, you simply slip a tea bag into each sleeve, you could probably enlarge template to accommodate Hot Cocoa.

Just a closeup, LOVE my stickles!

OK, so I probably need a little Purse Card Counseling! :)

My first exploding Box card, needs ribbon, this one is not quite finished!

 Still not finished, have LOT'S more cool stuff and stickles to add!




 CANNOT WAIT until Daddy let's me get those Copic Markers!!

Don't it make your Brown eyes BLUE!

This also was a lot of fun, this is a Navy Metallic cardstock purse, the inside paper and of course the box to match, all thanks to The Ultimate Crafter's Companion!

I especially liked this one!

OK, OK, so I love the Purse Cards!

This one is a file from the SUPER TALENTED Ms. Penny Duncan, she is a genious. Her website is www.pennyduncancreations.com. This was my first attempt at the Screen Door Card, what a blast.

Inside, the little green door also opens for a secret message if wanted.

With Secret Door Open-THANKS PENNY, will definitely make more!

An all occassion, love anything with Bling, just wish the lime green would show up better in the pic's.

A really fun dress card!

More Bling for summer flip flops!

Another set of Brilliant cut files from Penny Duncan!

I did this one for my boss!

LOVE anything with Dragonflies or butterflies.

The Inside.....

And of course, the matching envy.

Love the blue and lime green!


My first attempt at a gate fold!

The inside but not real clear, sorry!


 THIS WAS SUPER FUN! My first Baby Dress Card!

A really cute PINK purse Box!

NOT too thrilled with how this one turned out but it was fun to make!

Wow, so much paper, so little time!!

Just beginning to upload some of my Art, would just love to get some feedback from my fellow artists, designers and bloggers.

This was a Purse Card from a template I found, I really love the colors, I think it turned out OK.  Have made several since this one, maybe I will just upload the fronts of some of them.
