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 2412


It's Monday morning, and you know what that means!!!  It's another PIP Challenge!! This one is Challenge 2412, and our sponsor this week is the wonderful Newton's Nook!! They have been a long-time supporter of PIP Challenges, and we appreciate them very much!! I hope you'll check out Newton's Nook website to see their entire product line (you'll have a blast!!) Newton is a favorite of mine, and I used "Newton's Day Dream" set for my card this week.  Colored with Copic markers, I layered the image on a piece of colored cardstock from my stash, and then again on white cardstock.  A few gems were added for embellishment.  And I hope you'll stop by Challenge 2412 and uplink your creation for a chance to win a prize from Newton's Nook.  Have a great week!!

PIP Challenge 2411

Welcome to PIP Challenge2411, an Anything Goes challenge, sponsored this week by Polkadoodles.  We are blessed to have Polkadoodles as a long-time sponsor of PIP Challenges, and enjoy their support!  You can check out their entire product line at Polkadoodles website.   This image is so sweet and I couldn't resist printing it in color and then enhancing it with Spectrum Noir Tri Blend markers.  I layered the image on black cardstock and then again on a coordinating green piece of cardstock.  I think I'll be printing more of these for my Easter cards this year!!  I hope you'll visit our Challenge 2411 and uplink what you made for a chance to win in our random drawing!  Thanks for stopping by - have a great week!!

PIP Challenge 2405


Welcome to PIP Challenge 2405, an Anything Goes Challenge, sponsored this week by Lawn Fawn.  So many cool images can be found at Lawn Fawn Website - click on over and see!! We definitely want to thank Lawn Fawn for being an amazing sponsor and supporter of PIP Challenges over the years!! I was so lucky last week to find some really cool CAS (Clean And Simple) ideas.....so I used another one for this week.  I'd seen it with "Happy Birthday" words on the page and a present popped up on top......the Get Well Soon set worked just as well!  Just a little coloring with Copic markers and a hand-drawn border around the outside.  That's it!!  I hope you'll check out PIP Challenge 2405 and uplink your creation for a chance to win a really nice prize from Lawn Fawn!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

PIP Challenge 2404


Welcome to PIP Challenge 2404!  This is a CAS Challenge - Clean And Simple - which means limited layers, not a lot of embellishments and lots of "white space".  Full description can be found at the Challenge website.  Our sponsor for this CAS Challenge is Polkadoodles.  We are grateful to Polkadoodles for providing images for our challenges and for being a long-time sponsor of PIP!! I colored this monkey image with Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers.  I drew a border around the image and then drew more incomplete borders around that initial one.  The image and sentiment were printed on one layer, so the whole card is one layer on the base.  No embellishments on this one!  I hope you'll join our CAS Challenge 2404. Thanks so much for stopping by - have a GREAT WEEK!!!

PIP Challenge 2402


Welcome to PIP Challenge 2402, an Anything Goes Challenge, sponsored this week by Beccy's Place.  I experimented with some color this week, using pan pastels and accenting with Copic markers.  I tried some bolder color combinations than I usually use, so it was a definite "step out of my comfort zone moment"!  Thank you so much to Beccy's Place for being a long-time sponsor of PIP Challenges and for providing an image to work with. Check out her entire product line at Beccy's Place website.  All of these will be turned into cards of some kind....just not sure what yet.  I hope you'll join our Challenge 2402 and uplink your creation for a chance to earn a gift certificate to Beccy's Place!  Can't wait to see what you create!!
