Ok so I lied, I am doing one more post before the New Year.  It is an image drawn by Robert Jackson as a freebie to the ladies who completed the Scandal Challenge.  I found her to be so darn cute,( I am also partial to cowboys and cowgirls),that I made 6 cards.  They are non traditional New Year cards.  The insides say " Happy New Year, Have a great 2015, Be blessed and never stressed" .  For the crafty people it say " Have a Croppy New Year".
Hope you like at least one of the cards and maybe be inspired to make some yourself.  Now it is my time to tell you Happy New Year -Be Blessed and Never Stressed.  Peace

Hi people, back again with a little something for the boys.  I rarely make male cards because I am all about the bling and such. My inspiration to do the first card was a challenge over at Scraps of Color Called Sketch Color Create.  Tina Riley was the brave soul who picked a male image for us to mimic.  I thought I would use mine to send to a male friend for the New Year.
The next image is one by Robert Jackson that was inspired by all the unjust going around our nation right now.  It is called Hands Up.  I decided to make it more upbeat and make a  Birthday card out of it.  I love the cute image.
Ok, that is all I got for now.  I thank you for stopping by and appreciate you.

I’ve been nominated for the Creative Blogger Award!

How nice when someone thinks you are creative enough to be nominated for an award.  Thank you Princess from
This Creative Blogger Award entitles the recipient to join a group of very talented people and share their personal thoughts and secrets about their creative endeavors.  Hopefully you will learn something new about each blogger and find some inspiration along the way.

What am I currently working on? 
Holiday cards

What is my signature style?
I am for sure Afrocentric as I love the images by Robert Jackson that are so us.  I am also quirky, fun and very colorful.
How do I become inspired and stay inspired?
It does not take much.  I can look at an image or thing and I get excited.  After looking at an image I search for paper and it is on.  I love going to SOC gallery for inspiration and also another favorite in Pinterest.  Crafting is not just a hobby, it is a way of life for me.
How does my creative process work?
After seeing my image, altered piece or whatever, I get so hyped I just start going for it.  I run around searching for things I need and not ashamed to hit up Micheals or Hobby Lobby to complete my project.
Creative Blogger Nominees:
Now it’s my time to Pay It Forward.  I would like to nominate Karen Atkinson from
Karen is a crafty friend I met over at Scraps of Color.  She is a very kindred heart and loves what she does.  I tease her about being a perfectionist and lawd talk about organization.  This lady spends an extreme amount of time getting her supplies well organized and blogs about it often.
Thanks again for my nomination and please check out Princess's and Karen's blog if you get a chance. 
Everyone have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hi folks, I know it has been awhile since my last post, but I have been very busy and when I was not busy I was ill.  This year Christmas is coming to soon for me.  I did not even get a chance to put a tree and decorations up.  I am trying to get out as many cards as I can before it is too late.  I am already exhausted just thinking about everything I still need to do.  If you do not get a card from me, it is not because I did not want to. 
This past Saturday my scrap group had our annual Holiday crop where we exchange cards and have a handmade gift exchange.  This is when I get to make the bulk of my cards to send out.  Unfortunately we had to have the party later than we usually do in November. 
Ok enough chit chat, let me share some cards I made.  The first one is one my sister created and we all got to make our own.  She drew the image.  The second one is the card I created to share with the ladies.  The third one was made for my neighbor who just told me she had went to an ugly sweater party last weekend.

I also had to make a gift to exchange which I choose to alter a wine bottle.  I made some center pieces with plastic ornaments from Dollar three.  The bases are snowflake ornaments and other things from Dollar Tree.  My last gift is one I made for a Holiday Traveling gift over at Scraps of Color.  I made this for my person as I seen she enjoyed decorating for the holidays. Hope I have created something that has sparked and interest in you and you will be inspired to go out and create something yourself.  Thank you for blessing me with your presence and if I do not post again HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Just wanted to do a quick share of a couple of cards I made today while I was in the mood.  The first card is an image I drew over at Scraps of Color in the Sketch Color Create group.  I kinda liked how she looked so I thought I would create a Christmas card.  I can't remember where I saw the sentiment "Let it Fro" but it fit perfect for me.  I am also adding this to the Sista/Brotha Blogger Challenge over at Scraps of Color.
The second card is one I decided to make for one of my brothers.  He appears to like receiving my handmade cards.  I got the image off of Pinterest but had to alter it a bit as I did not want him to be bald headed.  LOL

I very much appreciate you stopping by and comments are welcomed letting me know you were here..  Have a great Friday.

Happy Mail and a Big Blessing

So I went to the mail the day before yesterday and found an envelope marked Happy Mail, Definitely not junk mail. I did not recognize the name of the sender but I knew it was a card.  I ripped it open with excitement and found the cutest Saturated Canary image on the card.  On the inside it said "You're so Fabulous, I am pretty sure you fart glitter"  Now I remember, I met this lady named Donna at a Stamping Convention in Phoenix about 5 or 6 months ago.  We were laughing at the silly stamps and I ask her what would you use that for.  She said I will think of something and send you a card.  Better late than never and it is darling.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends and realize that we have so much to be thankful for.  Don't forget to count your Blessings no matter how big or small.  This is a Robert Jackson image.  Peace.

I know I have been slacking on my blogging,  but first my computer was acting up then I got sick for a bit, but I am back (I hope).  There is nothing more I like to do than create cards for myself and others.  The cards I am posting were made for a friend of mine.  In case you don't notice, she likes everything Pink and Green.  She need a 50th birthday which is being celebrated on the beach in Florida by a bon fire, a sympathy card and 3 Thank you cards for a function held at the casino.  The last two images are by Robert Jackson. I love sharing with you and hope you will come again.

Hi folks, I have been MIA due to working Voter Registration.  It is hard working an 8 hour day after being free for 6 yrs.
At any rate, I thought I had better post my last projects before October is over.  My mom ask me to make something for two  survivors at her church and of course I was glad to be a blessing.  One was her cousin.

While I was at it I made a few Halloween cards for some of my co-workers.  We were allowed to dress up today and I enjoyed doing it and passing out my cards.

I thank you for stopping by and allowing me to share what I love to do.

Hey ya'll, I found this funky image called Pretty Big Girl over at  The artist is Sandra Caldwell. I was not sure about it as she looked sad and I was not sure what to do with it.  Tell me what you think.

Glad you stopped by.  Thank you

Hi People,  back again with another share.  All of these cards are over sized 5 1/2 x 81/2.  I really like playing with this size as it allows room for more.
The first card was made for one of the ladies at Bluemoon Scrapbooking who I heard was a Survivor.  Her reaction was priceless.
The next one is for my oldest brother who was a widower, but found love again.  How sweet is that?  Guess there is still hope for me LOL.
Last is a Birthday card for one of my FB friends for his wife.  He lives in TX and has ordered several years from me.  Hope she likes it.
Well, that's it for now.  Thanks for stopping by.  Peace

I continue to make cards and  projects for Breast Cancer month.  I was given a person to share some of my art with over at Scraps of Color.  I decided to make her a mini tote and a matching card. I hope this will brighten her day because she deserves it.
I also made a pink birthday card for my neighbor who is a bit cowgirl and loves pink.  Did I mention that I love the Prima doll cowgirl and will find any excuse to use her.
Thanks for stopping in and will be back soon.
