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 1850

Hello!  It's time for PIP Challenge 1850, sponsored this week by Polkadoodles.  Thanks very much to Polkadoodles for providing an image for the design team to use in our challenge.  Check out all their great products....you won't be disappointed!  This image is called "Buying the Tree".  I printed it in two sizes and decided to color them both the same and finish them off differently.  I can't decide which I like better - what do you think? Copic markers were used to color the images, and then I used my very favorite Spectrum Noir sparkle markers to highlight areas.  The blue paper is embossed with a swiss dot embossing folder. Please visit our challenge HERE and upload your project for a chance to win an awesome prize from Polkadoodles.  We really enjoy seeing what you create! Thanks for taking the time to stop by - I hope you have an amazing day!!

PIP Challenge 1849

Happy Monday, and welcome to PIP (Pammies Inky Pinkies) Challenge 1849.  We are sponsored this week by the lovely Di's Digis.  Thank you so much to Di's Digis for being such a wonderful sponsor of our challenges.  We really appreciate them!  Please check out all their products HERE.  This week my goal was to use up some Christmas paper I had been holding onto (for a really long time). I used a Crafters Companion rough edge circle die cut to frame the tree and then simply scored the tan paper 1/4" from the edge all around.  It adds just a touch of dimension.  The twine was from my stash and the sentiment from Endless Creations. Thank you to my friends Judy and Pam for letting me play in their craft rooms!!  Please visit PIP Challenge 1849 to see some great inspiration from the other design team members and uplink your creation for a chance to win a $12 Gift Certificate from Di's Digis…..what an awesome prize!!! Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful day!

PIP Challenge 1848

Hello, and Happy Monday!  It's time for PIP Challenge 1848, an Anything Goes Challenge, sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps.  So thankful to Bugaboo for providing an image for the design team members to use.  This cutie is called "Snowman Peeker" and makes me smile every time I look at it!  You can check out all their adorable images and product HERE.  I colored the image with Copic markers and fussy cut part of it out so it would "peek" around an edge that was layered with a piece of Crafters Companion designer paper. The snowflake is a Crafters Companion die cut, and the inside is embossed with a Sixxiz embossing folder.  The sparkly gem is from the stash. So glad you stopped by today - please visit our challenge this week and uplink your project for a chance to win a gift certificate from Bugaboo Stamps! Happy Crafting!
