About Me

My photo
Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

OCCC Remembering the Good Times

     I started out doing a technique challenge using dryer sheets for flowers, and while waiting for my stickles to dry I did this.  (As a side note, my long-haired lazy tom cat Fuzzy, was just recently wearing the smallest flower)  Anyway, I was thinking about the coloring of ef and I tried it with a SU Early Espresso paper with what I think is a Tim Holtz ef.  It didn't work.  I guess it was too dark.  But.................the embossing on that dark cs looked so good I had to keep going.
     I used my Tim Holtz blender stamp and some Tim Holtz Black Soot and got something that looked like an old book.  After remembering this weeks OCCC Buttons n Bows or Burlap, well, that finished off the card for me.

  1. Ooooh, I love this, Lisa! The embossing looks fabulous with the extra color on it and your die cut and image are just fabulous. And I believe I spy some burlap thread from The Funkie Junkie Boutique, which always gives me a thrill. Terrific take on the Buttons 'n Burlap or Bows challenge at Our Creative Corner. I am so pleased that you joined in the fun with us this week.
