Cards for Danny

5 yr old Danny Nickerson has an inoperable brain tumor. As a parent and as a hospice nurse, this touched me deeply. Especially when all he wants for his birthday is a box of cards. Thankfully,  this story appeared on my Facebook news feed and lots of my crafty friends participated in making special cards for this little guy. Since he likes Legos, I created a card that I hope he will enjoy. It makes me happy to use my skills for good and makes me hug my loved ones tighter.

Heart2Heart Gratitude Challenge

I finished the reverse side of my Halloween accordion sign with "Give Thanks". I love having a decor piece that does double duty...

I also made a wall hanging to celebrate being thankful. Much more fun than cleaning and paying bills today :)

Heart2Heart Lace Challenge

I have been seeing these amazing Triple Time cards, and finally couldn't resist any longer.... I found a video tutorial on Pinterest and had to give it a try. The H2H challenge for this week is to incorporate lace, so I found a lacy stamp set and some lacy snowflakes and gave it a go. The actual lace ribbon on the snowflake card us leftover from my mom's wedding last summer, so I really wanted to incorporate it. I will definitely be using the Triple Time technique again! What fun :)

Heart2Heart Shape Up Challenge

So, last week my creation was not met with the response I wished, so hopefully this week I will redeem myself. I've been wanting to create my version of these adorable snowmen inspired by Vicki Burdick. I see them being darling embellies for cards, tags and layouts.

The first thing I thought of when I read this challenge was this fabulous,  beautiful dress form from the CTMH Find Your Style set woukd be perfect when combined with the elegant papers in For Always. And that pop of blue?!? Love it! Add some damask from Friendship, a few embellies and all done. Hope you like it, too :)

Heart2Heart challenge Au Natural

An oldie but goodie, the colors in the Boom-Di-Ada paper pack are perfect for a fall project. I was itching to try the gorgeous tree card from www.obsessedwithscrapbooking by my friend and amazing papercrafter, Joy Tracey. I loved the video so much, I watched it several times to make sure I got it right. So, armed with my new CTMH Artbooking cartridge and lovely fall colored papers, I gave it a go and really like how it came together. Tyanks for the inspiration,  Joy!

For the first time in a very long time, I'm playing along. I had a blast trying out my new supplies and love how this baby card turned out.

Love getting inspired by Pinterest

I think I finally figured out how to blog from my phone. I want to be more active in sharing my artwork,  so let's see if this works!

H2H “Go Green” Challenge

I was looking through my recent artwork photos and found this medallion card I made during Creative University. It’s easy to be creative when surrounded by all that talent. I love all the different shades of green…

01/11/13 Heart 2 Heart challenge: Snow Much Fun!

I’m in love with these snowmen! I incorporated snowflakes from several different stamp sets to create the random-stamped background, and had to add a little sparkle to the snowflakes surrounding my little friend. Simple, but fun Christmas Thank You cards.
