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 2004

Welcome to PIP Challenge 2004, an Anything Goes challenge, sponsored this week by Polkadoodles. This sweet image is called "Heart of Gold". Please visit Polkadoodles website to see all their adorable images!   I used Spectrum Noir Tri Blend markers to color the image and fussy cut it out. I found some mini-heart designer paper in my stash and made a background on black cardstock.  I wasn't sure if I should use this for Valentine's Day or an Anniversary card, so I haven't placed a sentiment on it yet. Which one would you choose?  Check out the rest of the design team's awesome cards at Challenge 2004 and uplink your creation for a chance to win a wonderful prize from Polkadoodles! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 449

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 449, sponsored this week by Newton's Nook Designs. Our theme is Layered Die Cuts, which means use a lot of die cuts!  I used Newton's Pawprint Shaker Die for the pawprint and bones die cuts, a rounded edge rectangle die, and a greeting tag die.  I also used a Newton's Woof stencil and sponged it with Tim Holtz distressed ink.  Everything else on the card is from my stash.  Please visit Newton's Nook Designs to see their wide variety of stamps and other goodies.  And I hope you'll check out our Challenge 449 and upload your creation to win a prize from Newton's Nook.
