About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Terri. I started crafting at an early age when my grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels. Over the years I've tried many other crafting mediums, and have found my favorite in rubber stamping. My wonderful guy (Craig) supports me in everything I do........I'm very blessed!! I love learning new things and hopefully will inspire others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 451

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 451, where our theme this week is "Use Your Favorite Color".  I can never decide if blue or purple is my favorite color.....you see a little of both in this card. But I ended up going with purple, so I guess today that's my favorite!  Our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter, and I'd like to thank them for this beautiful image for the design team members to use.  It's called "A Refreshing Drink" and is colored with Copic markers.  I used some purple papers from my stash to create the layers and added a quick thinking of you sentiment.  A little Spectrum Noir sparkle marker was used on the sunglasses.  Please visit our challenge HERE and uplink your creation for a chance to win a nice prize from The Paper Shelter.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Tuesday Throwdown Chalenge 447

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 447, our last challenge of 2019.  I really appreciate you stopping by!  This week's challenge is an Anything Goes Challenge, and I chose to use up lots of scrap items from my large stash!!  The designer paper was a gift from a very special friend and I highlighted some of the flowers with Spectrum Noir sparkle marker.  The sentiment is one of my favorites from my go to box (sorry - don't remember who it is from).  And the ribbon is from my ribbon stash that I thought brought out the darker colors in the designer paper.    I hope you will visit Challenge 447 and check out the great inspiration from the other design team members.  It has been a great year and I hope you will continue to follow us in 2020.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

Welcome to PIP Challenge 1950, an Anything Goes Challenge.  Our prize this week is a gift certificate from Mo's Digital Pencil.  Be sure to check out their wonderful images HERE.  I was given this beautiful designer paper from a special friend and used it to make a sympathy card to send to my cousins who recently lost their mom, my Aunt Kathy.  She was a really neat lady and I wanted to send them something special.  The sentiment was from my box of go-to greetings (I believe Stampin' Up, but I'm not sure).  I added the ribbon for embellishment.  Please check out the great inspiration from our design team members at Challenge 1950.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
