About Me

My Photo
I am a retired nurse and at home mom to my 2 beautiful kids Chelsea and Jake. Although my daughter is now going into fourth year University away from home...she's still with us in the summers. My son will be going into third year at our local University this fall. I find that I have lots of time to scrap and make cards. Lovin' it!

Try Me Tuesday at My Creative Time



It's Try Me Tuesday at My Creative Time. This week we are supposed to use MCT dies to create a stencil. I chose to use the new "A Thankful Heart" leaf dies, and acetate to make a stencil. I then used Tim Holtz distress inks to do a little sponging. Love how quick this was...and how CAS and pretty it turned out. Thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann :)

Made in Minutes



Today is Made in Minutes Monday at My Creative Time. We were supposed to use this pic as inspiration...
This card took about 17 minutes...with a little cheating. I already had the card designed in my head...and the paper picked out :P I am loving the Stitched rectangle die set...I reach for it all the time. It seems to be on everything I make lately. Anyways...I made my own bucket using the chunky jar dies...I think it turned out super cute!! Thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann :)
