Happy Founders Day 2018

My friend Mary Joyce at Scraps of Color gifted me with these dies and I'm having way too much fun.  I used my sorority colors Crimson and Cream with a neutral color black to create this card.  Sketch Saturday made it easy with their sketch challenge.  Thought I would have a little more fun adding my die cuts with a goal of getting together more often from Cut It Up.  My sorority sisters are all busy ladies, but sometimes you have to get away from it all and take time to fellowship.  Craftycatz has a twist with One for the Ladies so this is my creation.

Crafty Catz - #399 ATG with an Optional Twist - One for the Ladies
Cut it Up - Must use die cut and a Resolution or Goal

What a Prize!

I was a winner at World Card Making Day!  It made my day.  It was that kind of week when I had so many deadline projects and goals to meet at work, personal goals to stay focus with and trying to stay calm in all of it got me feeling pretty exhausted.  But there was a Silver Lining.....When I arrived home late last night, I was thrilled to pick up this huge box filled with goodies.  Let me share it with you!  You will be seeing some projects real soon.  I don't have any of these items in my stash so I can't wait to play in the craft room.  WOW, What A Blessing!  Sad to see so many craft stores have closed their doors, but is still striving and inspiring us to craft!  Got to love that place!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy DSP week!

I'm sharing cards made for our Direct Support Professional team at SRVS!  It takes a BIG heart to work with people with disabilities.   The cards are all made from scraps I was going to throw away.  The paper was too pretty to trash, but I found a purpose for it.  Cardmaking is a great way to use your scraps.  The sentiment is by Verve's Stamps!

Flip Book Swap

Well Hello friends,
I suppose you thought I took a Sabbatical, but actually I've been doing so many requested projects!  From shadow boxes, graduation albums and altered gift bags, I didn't take the time to take photos for my blog.  So without further delay, let me share this Friendship Flip Book I made for Mary Wooding over at Scraps Of Color.  Sweet Shirley was our hostess that got it all together.  SOC is closing this month.  My heart is heavy just thinking about it.  They are sisters I've actually not only connecting via on-line, but have arranged to meet in person.  Oh what wonderful fellowships we've had together.  And you know if we met, we visited a craft store in the city right?!!  Well back to my flip book, Mary requested pink and black combo.  Let me share the pages of which I used a Recollections 6 x 6 paper stack.  (Warning Photo overload)  Enjoy!!!
