About Me

These are a few of my favorite things (not in order of importance): Creating beautiful things from paper or fabric; Loving puppy dogs (and cats, and other furry critters); Being part of the Eagan Hills Alliance Church family; Enjoying my grandchildren; Relaxing with my husband - especially someplace with dramatic nature (like the North Shore of Lake Superior); Being appreciated by folks where I work.

Mix it up Monday w/ Summer Fun, and Challenge 173

 LOL!  I just discovered this post was still in my "draft" stage - from summer 2011!  Well, I'm learning (gradually) about blogging. 

Here are a couple of new cards made for challenges.

Stamp TV's last "Mix it up Monday" challenge was to do a Clean and Simple sketch. I chose to do that sketch using summer colors to fulfill the challenge on the Crafty Purple Frog site. http://craftypurplefrogchallenges.blogspot.com/

Cute Card Thursday Challenge 173 was "Going Round in Circles" so I chose to do the card body in a circle.  Cut with Nestabilities just slightly inside the top edge, so the fold is at the top.  It made me think of a canon ball or cherry bomb, so "Have a Blast" is a Happy Birthday card.  Seen here on an A2 envelope, it shows that even with the 'fuse' lite, it will fit for standard mailing.

Card Challenges have been a great way to "push" me into doing the craft I love.

Trying Something New

I've never really been into 'blogging' but decided to give it a try.  I enjoy doing the StampTV 'blog hops' and thought it couldn't hurt to learn more about blogging.
