What? A card? Shocking!

Cross stitch fabric and Copics…love.


Finally found that vacuum cleaner stamp I’ve wanted for so long

Old American Crafts patterned paper, new American Crafts stamp…

The hardest cards to make…

…are sympathy cards. Even more difficult is figuring out what to write inside.

Got Wood?

So a recent trip to Hobby Lobby led us once again to the wood section.
Because it’s fun to cut.

The poor lighting is due to the fact that a) I’m too impatient to wait till morning and b) I’m using my phone because, well, I’m too impatient to get out the D-SLR and do the whole uploading thing. (Noticing a trend here? As I like to say: I used to be a patient person; then I had kids.)

Thanks for looking…and I’d love to see what you make out of wood!

PTI Contest

Here’s my entry for the PTI Third Anniversary contest for Day 13:

My sheet of embellishments (for a crafty friend!) and the card I made using one of them.

Thanks for looking!

PTI Challenge – “paint” by number sketch

For some reason I had a really difficult time with this and I’m not happy with the way it turned out, but luckily it’s a random winner, nothing talent-based!

Since  my username begins with K, my color palette was:

and here’s the end result:

Boat-Load of Buttons…

So…last week was rough (any week in which you are repeatedly googling medical terms usually is)…but I feel that a corner has been turned and things are going to get better. (At least that’s what I’m telling myself!)

I was able to make some cards yesterday, though, which certainly improved the mood. What do you think?

The new Everyday Button Bits stamp set from Papertrey Ink is fab…and I’m having a blast actually USING some of those buttons I’ve been hoarding.

Ok, so true, the last one doesn’t have any buttons…in all honesty, I actually made it about a month ago. But it’s been sitting here on my desk (yes, I have a recipient in mind), so I decided to throw it into the photo shoot.

Supplies? I bet y’all can figure them all out…but if you can’t, just give me a shout-out. Most of ’em are from PTI.

Thanks for looking…

Peace out
