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!!

PIP Challenge 1808

Welcome to another PIP Challenge.....an "Anything Goes" Challenge sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps. They graciously supplied an image for us to use, and I chose this adorable "Nuts About Gardening" image.  Thank you Bugaboo!!  Please visit Bugaboo Stamps to see all their wonderful products.

I ended up posting 2 cards, because I couldn't decide which one I liked better!  Please leave a comment and let me know which is your favorite.....I'd love to know!  On both cards, I used colored pencils and paper from the stash.  On the purple card, I used a Fun Stampers Journey grass die cut and an unknown fence die cut.  On the other card I used oval die cuts.  Both cards were very fun to make.  I appreciate you stopping by...check out our Challenge 1808 to see the other design team members' awesome inspiration, and join us with your linked project for a chance to win some Bugaboo product!  Have a wonderful day!

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #380, a sketch challenge sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter.  They generously provided this "Party Chooks" image for the design team to use, and I had so much fun working with it!  Please visit their website to see the other adorable images as well as other product.

I colored these little chooks with Copic markers and added just a little sparkle pen from Crafters Companion to their hats.  Following the sketch, I used orange ribbon, blue pennants and black gem stones to finish off the card.  I hope you will join us at this week's challenge...I'd love to see your take on the sketch!  Thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
