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 Tutorial Challenge #122

MFP Tutorial Challenge #122

This was a fun, fun challenge! I can see me using this a lot in the future!!  I used gold paper to cut the stars out of and some red circles from a repurposed string of tree trimming. The red velvet ribbon was from my (enormous) stash of ribbon.  :-)   The stamp is from Craftsmart.

I would like to thank Mark's Finest Papers and the Friends of Speedy TV group for choosing this card as the winning entry.  I earned the Hot Air Balloon stamp set.

MFP Color Challenge #42

MFP Color Challenge #42 - rust, green, blue

I found this piece of rust- colored paper in my stash and matched it up with a blue and green scrap I found.  It was interesting using all three colors together. That's whatI love about color challenges - it makes us think outside the box!

MFP Tutorial Time Challenge #121

MFP Tutorial Challenge #121 - Quilling

I'm not very experienced at quilling so I wasn't sure how this card would turn out. Once I got the hang of it, though, it was pretty fun!  I added a sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers to my butterfly card.

MFP Inspirational Challenge #83

MFP Inspirational Challenge #83 - Unusual Snowmen

What a great challenge - who doesn't like a snowman card??  I liked the "sand" color of the one picture, so I made my card from kraft card stock to represent the same color.
