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!!!!

Penciled Flowers

     Hi all!  As I mentioned yesterday, I have been watching ALOT of Darlene's blog.  Her videos are so informative and easy to follow.  Although I have a long way to go before nearing her talent, I have improved so much in my coloring with but copics and pencils.  That's what my card is done with today. I stamped the Hero Arts floral stamp in Gray ink on Neenah Solor White Paper as a background.  I die cut it with Spellbinders Label 8.   I stamped to same stamp again and colors with pencils and a white gel pen for the centers and little lines on the petals.  Then I used pop-dots to pop it up.  I embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment in SU pewter, punched it out, pierced holes on both side and threaded gray floss through it.
     Well, I'm off to watch another of Darlene's videos.
