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!!!!

Hey, How Are You?

[WMSC122%255B5%255D.jpg]     Hi!  Today is my birthday.  Happy Birthday to me!!!!  I've had a dinner with my family, tons of well wishes on facebook, and next week is the Gigglers monthly birthday dinner and this month is MINE!  So lots of beautiful cards and great friends and lots of giggles.

     My card today is for two challenges.  The Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge#122 which is a cute sketch by Renee Lynch.  And this sketch works right into Joan's Challenge at SCS for Layered Scallops in TLC402.
     This card is made with just blue and white with a little brown sponging.  For my scallops I used both a punch and a die.  I learned how to do a double bow at the CKC in Lancaster this year, but I tried a triple.  Hope you enjoy it.    And for all of you that are still up, the election is over.  Which means tomorrow I will not have 15 calls from faceless recordings, elected officals recording, and few real people, and a really exciting call from Clint Eastwood.  Although I would probably have voted for anyone that would promise not to call me in the afternoon when I'm taking a nap because I have a cold.
