About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

colourQ Challenge

I came across a new challenge at http://colourq.blogspot.com/. The inspiration is a color palette. 

So, I thought, why not? Then I got started. I gathered the colors and the was stuck. It seemed like no matter what combination I came up with, they all looked awful. So, I decided to just start and see what happened. This is the final result.
Obviously a "cherry cobbler" base, then kraft. Then, cherry cobbler wrapped in white velum. Cherry cobbler and gold ribbon, coral flat back pearls, and daffodil flower with white pearl brad.

Let me know what you think!



  1. Your card is lovely, Miranda, I love that beautiful yellow flower! I also love cards made with what you have, so don't fret, you were able to create such a nice card. Hope your issues are soon past issues and you can get back to doing what I am sure you love. In the meantime, thanks for joining in the fun at the colourQ, keep creating using whatever you have and enjoy!

    Please turn off word verification, word moderation works just as well.

  2. I'm so happy you found us! I think your card turned out really sweet. Glad you hung in there with these colors. Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ.
