Bring on the challenge…

Time for another CPS challenge.  Please visit their site for the sketch image. It has been awhile since I have posted.  Amazing how time just flies by and you don’t even know a month is gone. Our niece is turning 15 this weekend!!!  Amazing.  Her card is being mailed off this morning… talk about cutting it close.  Hopefully it will make it on time. I’m in the mode of using up scraps.  So I used the sketch and also challenged myself to use up some leftovers from some cards I had been working on.  I just love this little owl, …

Color Inspiration #44

I have been wanting to do one of Kristina Werner’s Color Inspiration Challenges and I guess now is as good of a time as ever.  This was a difficult one for me.  For some reason, just using black, grey and white was really hard. Sorry for the poor image.  I had to scan this one to keep the card shut.  The top was trimmed so the white inside saying was revealed. Materials: Cardstock: Bazzill Stamp: 7 gypsies Ribbon: Unknown

CPS106 and Caardvarks Card

This card is a 2-for-1 as I am submitting it to both CPS and to the Caardvarks challenges. The Caardvarks challenge was to use critters. I am loving my new stamp set by Colorbok.

I woke up one morning with an epiphany and decided to cut off the front of the card! The bottom middle photo shows how the card front …

Baking with Starter

My First Bread Post

I have two hobbies… scrapbooking and baking. I have been scrapbooking for over 5 years now, but baking with a natural starter has become a new passion. I think it has only been 6 months or so since I started my one and only starter: Harvey. I call my starter Harvey and he has been doing pretty good. I bake bread maybe twice a month, so he stays pretty dormant most of the time in the fridge. I’m still learning how to wake him up and get him going before I need to bake. It is a learning process you …

Mojo Monday 76

I’m getting these cards in at the last minute. Hopefully, I’ll do better next time and not cut it so close. Here is my version of the Mojo Monday 76 sketch. This has a bit more of a purple cast than it should. Again I used my new MemoryStor paper. I have a bunch of Studio G dollar stamps, but am finding they do not stamp very well. I stamped this and had to go over it with a marker for a smoother finish. I created some dimension with popping up the flower square as well as the flower center. …
