A new challenge has been posted over at  This is a sketch challenge but of course anything goes here.  It is a nice sketch so it would be nice to see some of you use it.  I will post the sketch here in case you want to do it

Here is what I did with it. TFL

Entering a challenge over at  It is about creating a card for a friend.  I wanted to use my new Close to my heart stamps (Fashionista).  There are 4 female images in the package so I split them up 2 and 2 and made two cards. Oh and did I mention that I bought a bow maker? I am loving it.  Thanks for stopping by.

It really isn't always about me.  Especially today because it is the day of the Lord.  With that said, I hope everyone has a very blessed Sunday.  I really like this image that I got off a refrigerator magnet that was given to me.  I had fun transforming her on to a card.  I used copics, stickles  and paper piecing to complete this card.

This motorcycle mama was drawn by Robert Jackson.  I made it for a Hot biker babe that goes by the handle NaNa.  You go Gurl.

My nieghbor ask me to make a birthday card for her sister who is turning 75.  She wanted something Bingo so I checked my Robert Jackson images and there she was.  My nieghbor stated that her sister colors her hair and has all her teeth.  She loves the card but is concerned that her sister might be offended by the no teeth thing.  I convinced her that it is all meant to be funny and she needed to lighten up and laugh
Good afternoon and Happy Friday fellow crafters.  Today I am posting some projects that I made for a Challenge over at Scraps of Color.  They are for the Robert Jackson Digi group. The challenge is  "Make me laugh".  Ok, so I am not the comedian I think I am, but had fun making the cards just the same.   The first one is a fellow blogger you all might know by Kinkybella   and is a SOC member  I am giving props to her for serving our country and being a great scrap buddy.  Thank you my sister.

The other I call  "Heart On"  He looks like he is so whipped I could not help but want to use this image.  Thank you all for stopping by and come back again.

I would like to say Happy Birthday to a very sweet lady over at Scraps of Color.  Her friend Alice B purchased this image from Robert Jackson and was kind enough to allow me a copy to make Alice H. over at a card.  Evidently she loves purple.  The inside the card says " not just the purple ones, Happy Birthday.

It is time for a new challenge over at,  It is an altered art challenge and the Design Team were to use a "Back to school" theme, but as usual anything goes for you all.  Mayzyart is the sponsor for this one so I made 2 projects, one using her image (Cleo) and one using Robert Jacksons image (School Girl)  One is an altered composition book and a pencil holder made from an empty crystal lite container.  The other project is a gift for the teacher.  I stictched a pocket on a piece of cardstock which holds ----you guessed it a big old chocolate bar.  Teacher is gonna need this at the end of the day.  Thanks for stopping in.

Blog candy on post 7/5.  Please check it out

Anybody that knows me knows that I love my Afrocentric everything.  I was so happy to see that one of Robert Jackson's new images was an  African woman called Confidence.  Of course, I had to have her.  So, with confidence I set out to create two cards right away.  I love this image and I love you for stopping by.

First of all don't forget to check out the post for 7/5.  There is blog candy.

Today I decided to break out some real stamps to make a card with.  I chose a Rubbernecker stamp called Keesha.  I have not used real stamps in a hot minute.  Digis are so much easier to use although I like to stamp and have lots and lots of  regular stamps.  I also used my new EK Success border punch.  This is a 2 way stamp and looks pretty cool when you use both punches.  I only used one.  Thanks for looking and please come back.
