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!

MFP Color Challenge 39 - pink gray blue


I saw this sketch and thought it would make a pretty card using these colors.  The sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers.

MFP Inspiration Challenge #80 - Ruby Falls


MFP Inspiration challenge #80 - Ruby Falls
The different colors really caught my eye as I looked at the pictures, so I made a background with a Stampin' Up stamp. The sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers.

MFP Simple Salutations #114 - play ball


This was a fun, fun challenge for me.  I was never a player but an avid spectator of most sports...especially baseball.  I spent a lot of time in the bleachers and always joked that I had more blankets and sweatshirts in my car during the summer than I did in the winter!!!  I made the little baseballs out of  white candies and drew the laces with a red Copic marker.

Thank you Mark's Finest Papers for choosing my card as the winner of this challenge.  I earned the ALL POSTAL stamp set.

It's starting to look like fall outside, so I wanted to use some fall colors for this card. The butterfly and sentiment are from Mark's Finest Papers.  I don't think of using circular cards very much, but this was a fun card to make and I can see me doing this more.

MFP Sketch With a Twist #115 - yellow/gray


MFP SWAT #115 - yellow and gray
I used one of my favorite sayings for this card and chose a lacy-type background of gray and black.
I don't think of using yellow and gray together, but I like it that the challenges force us to use different color combos.....opens my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities.
