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.

Strut Your Stuff!

Haven't been feeling well the past few days, but have been working on a few things. This card will be entered into 2 challenges:
1. Craftin Desert Diva's: On the Farm
2. Outlawz: Freebie Challenge

Papers: scrap
Digi: Freebie rooster from Sandi Huggett
Sentiment: from computer in Byron Mark I font
The red diamond paper I believe is from an old Christmas stack. I distressed the edges in white ink from Studio G to go for the white washed look. The roosters were printed on cream colored card stock and distressed with Early Espresso Ink from Stampin' Up! The roosters were colored with oil pencils before being distressed. The sentiment, which is from my head and printed from the computer, was distressed in Crumb Cake ink from Stampin' UP!

Hope you like it!



  1. Such a cute card, I love those roosters for sure. I am working on a mini alblum right now and they would fit in so well. Thanks for joing in the fun and keep on crafting.
