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 Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 277 - make a sympathy card

I chose a new embossing folder to work with and a sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers.  I wanted it to be a clean and simple card.

MFP Challenge 275

MFP Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge #275 - Border Punch Both Sides

I  like using border punches...it can really change the look of a card and they are a quick and easy way to add the little extra touch.  I embossed my background first, then used this flower border punch. My flower is from Mark's Finest Papers.

This was an awesome tutorial by Lois and I knew the minute I s aw it what I was going to do!  This is a birthday cake for my sweetie with all the things he loves. The patterned paper themes are fishing and hunting. I used sentiments from Holiday Tags, ATC Cards and Firefighter.   Shhhhhh, don't tell him......we're celebrating his birthday this weekend!!

Thank you to Mark's Finest Papers for the "Snowflakes" stamp I earned for trying the tutorials in the Christmas in July blog challenge.  They were fun.....can't wait to try more of what I learned!!
