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.

For You!

Sorry it took so long to get back to posting. I actually fell asleep. Anyway, this card will be entered into 2 challenges on the same site:

I (heart) sketches:  the weekly sketch challenge and the monthly stamp challenge.

The stamp is the monthly release from I (Heart) Sketches. I colored it in oil pencil. The purple border is scrap paper. The flowers are from my stash. I think I got them at a garage sale. The vertical stamp is from the Fresh Vintage Stampin' Up set and is stamped in Wonderful Wisteria (I think that's the name). Sentiment was printed off the computer.

Here you can see that I added glossy accents to the flowers.

Rather cute don't you think?

Have a great evening!



  1. Interesting interpretation of the sketch ! Mean the flowers instead of the stripes. Beautiful card !
