Blogaversary!

Wow!
Can you believe that my blog will soon be 8 years old?

On October 2nd, I will have been blogging for 8 years.

I will have posted at least 1,445 posts - yikes!

Some of you have been with me from the get-go, offering encouragement when needed, 
offering kind words about creations that were not deserving (hee hee),
but mostly, offering friendships.

I feel so blessed...

Paper Crafting and blogging have brought so many of you into my life that I'd never
have had a chance to know otherwise.

I have friends in nearly every country, and nearly every state in the US.

When we travel, my hubby tries very hard to be sure that I get to meet a fellow paper crafter.

My very dearest friend was my paper crafting teacher in the beginning.

I remember eight years ago, getting my very first blog follower, and it is so humbling
to know that there are so many of you that want to take time from your busy days
to drop by and see what I've been up to.

Thank you to each of you!

Be watching for a bit of Blog Candy on October 2nd!

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs and smiles,

Patti J.

Heather's Happy Birthday Challenge at The House...

Hello!

I hope you are enjoying your week - Happy Wednesday!

It’s challenge day at The House that Stamps Built, and we have a great Designer’s Choice Challenge for you. RI Rock StarHeather, is hosting and has a wonderful theme challenge for us. Please join in our challenge, and create something using the theme:
"Happy Birthday".

Here's what I made using these Repeat Impressions Stamps:


For this card, I scored some random lines, and swiped an ink pad over my front panel.
Then I colored in some of the lines and added a bow. The inside gifts were colored
with copics.  Easy!!!




And now it’s your turn!
We hope you will create a card that has a focus on the DCC Birthday theme, and enter it in our challenge at The House that Stamps Built!  Remember, your creation does not have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you would like to include our designs we would love to see them!  Plus, there’s an added bonus… you will get an additional entry in our random.org drawing for using our stamps in your submissions!
One lucky person this month will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate!

Now, it's time to see what my DT friends have created!

Joy...

Hi there!
Happy Friday!

Today, I'm sharing another easy Christmas card that I created with products 



A little bit of coloring, a bit of Washi tape, and some pretty Shimmer Cardstock, and voila!

I wish you could see the sparkle that these Sparkle Pens have!
I colored the entire image, and the two blue strips at the top and bottom of
focal panel with the Sparkle Pens, and it's just so pretty in real life!

Color Challenge at The House that Stamps Built

Good morning!

I'm back with a new challenge for Repeat Impressions
Our challenge this week is a color challenge - look at the happy colors Wendy
gave us to work with:



And, here's what I made using these Repeat Impressions Stamps:





I thought these colors called for a happy occasion, so I stamped a birthday gift, sitting on a pretty party colored table!  Wonder what's under all of those packing shreds???

Now it’s your turn! Create a card using the colors above, and link it up at The House that Stamps Built. Remember, your creation does not have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you would like to include our designs we would love to see them! Plus, there’s an added bonus… you will get an additional entry in our random.org drawing for using our stamps in your submissions!
