So this is what I was working on yesterday....

The first two pictures are of a card with multiple folds.  Haven't decided yet for what occasion I'll use it.  Any suggestions?

The next picture I plan to submit to Mojo Monday.  I love making the crocheted flowers as embellishments.

And the last picture is of 2 card fronts I pieced together with scraps from the first 2 cards.  I find it easier to quickly make card fronts while I have the coordinating pieces all together.  If I file the scraps away, they seem to get lost.  (By the way, these are Kathy Knight papers and were a freebie that came with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.)

In case you were curious......

My father made this jewelry box for me when I was 15 (over 40 years ago).  Since I do my stamping, papercrafting in my dining room, and I wasn't using the jewlery box, I decided to refinish it and use it to store embellishments, etc.  It is a constant reminder of my father, who I dearly love;  it looks nice in the dining room; and is an ideal spot to prop up my cards to photograph.

This afternoon is my CTMH card class.  Can't wait to see what we'll make today.

  1. Beautiful cards. Love your jewelry box. I can't believe you have a blog! Way to go.
    Now I know I can ask you questions when I set one up. The first card would make a nice wedding card or housewarming card. (HINT: I need a wedding card for Saturday)


Thanks so much for saying hi.
