More stash to share...

Hi there!

I'm back to share a few more cards that have never made it to my blog.

If you have any questions, feel free to give me a shout.

Thank goodness for beautiful patterned papers, and beautiful dies - right?

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hoping to do some blog surfing on Wednesday when my internet turns over a new month!

I'm still here!!!

Hello out there!

I hope that all of you are well, and that you are enjoying a nice day today.
It's 79 degrees here today, and supposed to get icy, sleety, snowy by Saturday a.m.
Gotta love Missouri weather!

I've been getting emails, FB messages, and today, I got a beautiful handmade card in the mail (thanks Laurie Unger!)  Thank you all so much for being concerned about me.

It's been a busy winter here, so I stepped down from all but one of my design teams, so that I could focus on some much needed clean-up and renovation here at home. It's also been tax time and end of year reports and things for hubby's business. We were on the road a few days to see our beautiful family, and I just haven't spent much time in my girl cave!

Anyway, thanks again for your concerns!

I'm going to begin sharing a few things here and there that I never had time to post.
I'm not going to tag companies and supplies, so if you have any questions, let me know,
and I'll get back to you quickly.

I'll be back soon with a few more!

Thanks for stopping by,

Hugs and grins!

Scor-Pal - Anything Goes!

Good morning! There is a NEW Scor-Pal Challenge this month, and it's an easy one. Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge #45 is "ANYTHING GOES".

For this months project I made a cute candy box that was inspired by Linda Parker. Click on her link to see a video tutorial!  The finished dimensions of the box are 6 !/2" long x 1 3/4" square. 

This is a quick and easybox that you can fill with many fun things.  Perfect for craft fairs, shower gifts, or just because!

I used my Scor-Pal Eighths Board to create the box.
All adhesive was Scor-Tape and I used both 1/4", and 1/2"

I hope you stop by the blog for more information about this months Scor-Pal Challenge #45, and see what the other designers created to inspire you!

Come join us!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

One sheet wonder gift set

Hi all,

Hope you have had a good weekend. It's been a good one here - the temps have risen quite a bit. Today has been dreary and rainy, but the upside???  We looked out the window earlier and there were 12 deer in our yard, just nibbling away!

I thought I'd share a pretty set that I made one day several months ago. A friend, Sally McDonald is our local Stampin'Up gal, and she had us all out for a one sheet wonder day. She just brought out OODLES of stamps, inks, cardstock and embellishments, and let us create.  

I had been wanting to make a nice set to send our daughter-in-law, who sends quite a few cards, so here's what I made for Alicia:

Thanks for stopping by!  Hopefully, I'll soon be done with taxes, remodeling, and road trips, and be able to stalk ya'll a bit more often!

Hugs and smiles,

Patti J.

Finally created something...

Hey there!

Can't believe I am finally back with a quick project. I began the intensive jobs of remodeling our fireplace, preparing 1099's, and getting tax info together.  Whew....busy here!

Thought I'd play along with a fun sketch challenge at Power Poppy. The challenge was to go to PageMaps and grab a sketch, and create something using their beautiful products.  Here's what I made:

I used this sketch (map):

Cute, right???

I used the Power Poppy digital set 'Get Wool Soon' for my card. Since my recipient is not sick, just someone that knits A LOT, I used a die cut instead of a get well sentiment.

All coloring is done with Copics, the designer paper is some Stampin'Up scraps, not sure who made the die cut, and some Glossy Accents were added to the mug for a bit of dimension.

Hope you're having a good January. I'll try to pop in and out of here once in a while!
For now, it's back to my ladder!!!

Hugs and grins,

Patti J.

I used an online random drawing program, and my winners are:
