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 2337


It's time again for another PIP Challenge!!  This one is PIP Challenge 2337, an Anything Goes challenge, sponsored by PIP Challenges.  The winner (picked at random) will win a $10 Gift Certificate to Power Poppy.  My card this week was inspired by all the awesome images at Power Poppy.....so many beautiful flower images!!  I embossed white cardstock and glued my flowers onto it, then used a scallop scissors along the bottom. After adding a birthday sentiment, I added ribbon and Spectrum Noir sparkle marker to the flowers.  Layers of cardstock were used from my stash to finish off the card.  I hope you'll join our Challenge 2337 and uplink your creation for a chance to win this prize from Power Poppy.  Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

PIP Challenge 2335


Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day!!  It's another PIP Challenge......this one is sponsored by Varada Sharma. Thank you to Varada for providing images for the design team members to work with!  You can see her entire product line at Varada Sharma.  I went way out of my comfort zone this week and tried to use BOLD colors...and lots of them!!  The background had been sitting on my desk for awhile so I thought I'd finally use it.  I colored the balloon and flowers with Copic markers and used Glossy Accents over the whole image.  My inspiration comes from a recent kite flying weekend along the Lake Michigan shore in Wisconsin.  I hope you'll join our Challenge 2335 and uplink your image for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate from Varada Sharma.  Thanks so much for stopping by - have a great week!
