All about Love

Hi folks, I know I am posting kinda late, but I had one of those days.  Just could not get it moving today.  Anyhow, I hope you all had a much more productive day.  I did manage to get two cards completed since I wanted to enter one in a challenge that I have not participated in before.  Over at Jen's Digi Stamps, she is having a challenge called It's all about Love.  I found an image of a really cute freebie bear that I thought would be good for this.

I also found another free image by I think JadeDragon that I found to be interesting.  Hope you do too.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hello friends and crafters.  Last Saturday I attended an all day crop with 6 of my crafting friends.  We all decided we would make paper sack albums to display ourselves for 2013.  Our books have enough pages so that we can add a picture each month of this year of something fun or whatever that we did for the month.  We really had fun creating this personal albums.  I am posting my album and my first entry plus my sisters and my friend Kharmyn's book covers.
Don't forget that there is still time to enter for the picture frame in January 22 post.  Thank you all and have a blessed Sunday.

Hi crafty people. Looks like I need a few more followers to hit 100. Tell you what I am gonna do, I am gonna give a little incentive to get to my goal. Todays project is one created for the Sistah/Brotha Blogger Challenge over at Scraps of Color called "You've been frame." (alter a frame) Since I had the honor to pick the challenge I thought I had better get right too it. I had just got a cute image from Sherri Baldy called Cherry Blossom, so I thought I would just go with an Asian flair. My incentive is this--if you like this altered frame, all you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment here with a way to contact you. I will do a random drawing on 1/31 for a winner of this project. I am also gonna enter this in Thank you for being a follower or a new follower. Peace out.

Hi folks, it's me again with more Valentine Day cards.  I enjoy making these and what I don't sell I will send to my family and friends.  Nothing more special than receiving some happy mail that is hand made.  I can not remember who makes this beautiful African Woman, but it is a rubber stamp I bought about a year ago.  I use to be hooked on stamps but then I discovered digis.  Much  easier to print instead of stamp.  My Betty card is an image I found online and the Queen image is from "I brake for stamps".  Thanks again for stopping in.

Last night I got motivated to complete a challenge going on over at Scraps of Color.  I kept seeing these wonderful projects that some of the other ladies were making and I felt somewhat lost.  The challenge is set up for a different alterable item each month for this year.  This month we were to alter a soap box (Dove bar soap or similar).  I got my thinking hat on last nite and came up with a goodie bag for Valentines Day for my mother.  I did not stop there, I decided I needed to make her a card also so it would be a set.  I love the paper I chose.  It is from Echo Park called Love Story by Lori Whitlock.  The lace border is a Martha Stewart punch and the Branch is a die by Memory Box..  The beautiful pink flower on the box was a RAK (gift) from Maria Na from Portugal.  She made these by hand and was kind enough to bless me with some. The image is by Anji.   I hope ya'll enjoy my project as much as I enjoyed making it. Peace out.
