Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Pets Swap

  This swap is about pets. I have two little cairn terriers that I adore. I love taking pictures of them. I even make clothes for them. They are really quite spoiled but yet they are very obedient. On occasion I make scrap book pages of them. I can't imagine life without them. They follow me around the house all day long so it's not unbelievable that sometimes my projects pick up a dog hair or two. This time as I taped the envelope sealed to send my ATC's to the swap hostess I trapped a dog hair beneath the tape. It could have been worse...it could have been stuck somewhere on the ATC.


 THIS IS THE ATC THAT I MADE


   I have quite a few rubber stamps. I seldom use them. This stamp I love. If you ink it lightly and don't press too hard it hardly makes a mark on the paper. It gives a few lines like a sketch like I do for drawing. It gives me the freedom of getting out my watercolor paints and painting it. My kind of fun! I stamped this onto a tan colored card stock. The bones and footprints are another rubber stamp. I then cut out the word "Love" with my die cutting machine. I finished it with a little footprint plastic button.

THESE ARE THE ATC'S I RECEIVED

   I want to thank the artists for the fun little cards that I received. I had a great time making mine and it looks like so did everyone else.Well, I'm on to my next project and I hope that you are too.

Take Care
Kathy
