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!!!!

MOJO248 Happy Birthday

     It's Monday, which means MoJo Monday and a new sketch challenge #248.  It also means that I normally procrastinate for a few days.  Well, today is different.  I've done some touch-up painting in the house.  I've been to town.  DH is down to the river fishing.  (Hope he comes back with a stringer full)  Now I've got my Monday MoJo Groove going and here's the sketch...

     For my card I decided to go with Graphic 45's Little Darlings.  It's such soft sweet colors and designs.  And SU Pear Pizzazz cs went so well with the green.  I couldn't find a flower I liked for the lower left hand of the sentiment, so I just punched out the flowers of the dsp and pop-dotted them.  The ribbon is "HugSnug" seam binding that I wet and crumpled up until dry to give it a wrinkled look. (I got that from the Funky Junkie-she also colors hers, but I wanted the cream anyway).  I am now the proud owner of 300 yards in three different colors.  Anybody need a few feet?   The sentiment is from Verve's "Hope Blooms" set.  FYI, I have a couple new sets coming in the mail so I can start using different ones.  And that's about it for how "clever" I am today.  LOL!  Here are a couple more views....

Stamps:  Verve "Hope Blooms"
