About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Terri. My grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels when I was a little girl, and that started my love of crafting. Over the years I tried different things but my favorite is still stamping and card making. And what makes it better now is that my 2 sisters like it also!! It's fun when we can get together and make cards!! I love learning new ideas and techniques and give hope to others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....follow along if you'd like and see what we can create!!

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.
