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!!!!

WMSC105 Still Crazy

WMSC105     It's time for that Dancing Mouse again.  This sketch challenge (WMSC105)  is done by Teresa Kline and a nice sketch it is.  Of all of the sketch challenges I know (which is few, but.....) Waltzing Mouse just makes me think of vintage.  So I went to my "Vintage Paper" Box and pawed through all the Melissa Frances paper (which I love) but got to the odds and ends papers.  I came across some Anne Griffen paper that I thought was just beautiful so I decided to use that. 

     I paper pierced the corners of the middle sections (the one with the bigger flowers) but it really didn't look very good so I covered them with pearls.  Believe me, I listened when they said that there are NO mistakes, only embellishment opportunities.  LOL.  I'll show you both and you be the judge.   Leave a comment on which one you like better.  The choices are below.  I also sponged the edges to give it a more vintage look.   

Stamps:  Waltzing Mouse "Compact Sentiments & Vintage Label 10"
Paper:  Anna Griffin; SU Rose Red & Very Vanilla
Ink:  SU Rose Red
Accessories:  Paper Studio Pearls; Lace Trim
Tools:  Spellbinder Label 10


  1. WOW this is a lovely card with those colors! Like it very much! Love from Holland.

  2. Ooooo love that paper and those perfectly placed PEARLS! Such pretty pinks...and you are right, they are so fabulous with your vintage frame and sentiment. So glad that you could play along with the WMSC this week!

  3. Gorgeous card! Love all the pearls. Beautiful paper!

  4. So beautiful...love all of the pearls you put in the corners, so perfectly lined up. Such a classy look.

  5. very pretty, Lisa! With the main panel being low, the pearls add some balance and draw your eyes back to the top...nice!

  8. Love your choice of paper and the pearls are just the finishing touch. I agree the pearls work better than the paper peircing. They're more visible since you used patterned paper.

  9. Beautiful card, Lisa! Love the papers with the pearls and the gorgeous lace!
