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!

PIP 2239

 

Welcome to PIP Challenge 2239, an Anything Goes challenge, sponsored this week by Beccy's Place.  A big thank you going out to Beccy's Place for providing an image for the design team members to work with.  This adorable snowman is the one I picked......isn't he cute?? I colored his hat, earmuffs ad scarf with Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers and then added Spectrum Noir sparker marker (clear) by the snow and star.  But by the time I was finished I had sparkle marker everywhere, so I ended up smooshing it all over.  The picture doesn't do it justice!!  Please visit Beccy's Place website to see all the beautiful images available.  And if you have time, please check out PIP Challenge 2239 and uplink your creation to have a chance to win a nice prize from Beccy's Place.  Thank you so much for stopping by - have a wonderful week!

Welcome to PIP Challenge 2238, an Anything Goes challenge, sponsored this week by Gerda Steiner Designs.  Thank you to Gerda for providing this adorable watermelon dinosaur image for the design team members to use.  It's colored with Spectrum Noir Tri Blend markers and cut out with a circle die cut.  I matched up card stock from my stash to make a background and layered it up on a scalloped edge die cut. I couldn't decide what type of card it would be, so the sentiment hasn't been added yet.  Please visit Gerda Steiner Designs to see all the great images and product available.  And please also stop by PIP Challenge 2238 to see the inspiration from the other design team members and uplink your creation for a chance to win a really nice prize from Gerda Steiner Designs.  Thank you for stopping by - happy crafting!!
