Fall is in the Air!

Yes, I am totally in love with this time of year - I love the trees full of color and the chill in the air!!!
OK, this card is one of my new favorites. I love the combination of old and new stuff. I used TAC's,, Spring Dream set and the Mega Happy clear stamp set from Stampendous, Inc., I purchase purchased at Archivers!!!, and i used Palette inks. I colored them with colored pencils and smudged with my colorless blender pencil from Prismacolors!!! That is a total necessity when using colored pencils!

I found on the he online webiste Create for Less,, has the Clever Lever scalloped punches - yes, I got the circles and ovals! LOVE THEM!!! This set is one of my favorites sympathy sets from Stampin' Up,
Thanks for looking! Enjoy the fall colors - they'll be making their spectaular debut soon! Keep your eyes watching for colors all around us!

August is here!

My favorite set these days is Spring Dreams - it's the level C hostess set I got at Seminar! Those swirls are awesome!!! I've been putting them on everything! They add so much sophistication to my stuff! I just LOVE them!!!!

I've been working on so many cards - my inspiration has been tapped by making so many cards from the magazine called "Cards."

I've just been recovering from surgery, and enjoying my time to be alone and quiet by making cards. What a wonderful way to spend a day! I hope you enjoy some of my creations!

Lazy Summer Days!

Though, not a good scan, here are more examples of my screen door card.

I just found this great idea to storing unmounted stamps! What an awesome idea!!! I have so many CD's full of stamps, tho, what will I do with all those empty jewel cases? Well, I am forever looking for the best organizational tips! I think I found one!!! Follow this link and you, too, can get this great idea from Craft Critique!

Well, baseball and softball season has ended with my children! We had 4 games a week, and I was getting a little overwhelmed! But now the lazy days of summer have set in, only to give way to getting ready for school. My favorite time of the year!!! Ha ha ha! I am keeping up with my walking/running exercise programme and feeling healthier even tho my scale has not moved at all!!!

I have had great response to my template! Thank you to all who have checked it out and have blessed me with an order! I am truly grateful!

Great news!!! I am offering a Trading Card Size of my screen door template as well. I've had some customers request it! So, I am adding the TC size template. Email me for more info and if you'd like to place an order!!!!

Enjoy the rest of your summer! Caio, caio!

Newly Created!

Hi to all that share my same love of paper crafting! Whether you were at Seminar 2007 or not, you can still preview and purchase my Screen Door Template. I promise you will never look at rubber stamps in the same way again!
I created my screen door card by accident really! I was doodling and created a door, found some old screen pieces that Vince had laying around to fix a window. Hence, my screen door card was born! That was about 3 years ago. Unsure on how to share this creative card, I kept it to myself. I felt so selfish and stingy. I decided to share my creativity with others who can actually use the idea for themselves. I believe that once you are blessed with a gift, you MUST share it! (Wisely, of course)
So, around January 2007, I entered my card into a TAC contest. I did not win, BUT, I did get published!!! WOW!!! My dear Sister-in-law and fellow Angel Danine, called me and told me to check out the website. Under Terrific Touches, there was my card. I was excited and humbled all at the same! Check out this web link to see it too. Thanks for looking!!!
I was so lovingly blessed with such wonderful blessings when I shared my card in a trading card size version that allowed me to share with other Angels who were at Seminar 2007! BTW, Happy 10th Bday TAC!!! So excited about the response, I created this Blog and gave way to AD/COMM on webeAngels yahoo group.
SO, here it is, email me
