Hi, My latest card is for a swap on Stamping Queens using either scraps or card parts... I chose scraps to create this card. I included 2 photos because it is for someone whose email is akindajoy@ and so I thought I would include it on the card.  Oh, and the ribbon is seam binding that I dyed with distress stain. It wasn't done deliberately but I love how the ribbon color matches the scraps I used.  Thanks for looking...

A Challenge Card

I haven't participated in a challenge in years but this post will be my first since I've come back to paper crafting. I follow a challenge group called Case Study but have never participated in their challenges, until this week. Here is the entry I will link to this week's challenge:
It was great fun to create!!!

This post would not have happened (and probably any future posts) if it weren't for you. I was utterly frustrated until you helped me.
Now on to the entry I was trying to post.  I'm kind of exhausted after the problems I've had, but the only resolution I made for 2013 was to begin an art journal and below are 2 photos of my first page. I have spent a lot of time learning by following incredible artists who journal regularly (I love Julie Fei Fan Balzer). I also spent a lot of time being scared; afraid to put anything down on a page and finally, I got brave and really heard that I need to be free to just play with my supplies and the page, with no concern for the final product and here is what transpired.  I actually surprised myself...
and it felt really good. And now, thanks to Terry, I can share my accomplishment...
