Catered Crop Flower Power Recipe Swap

I have been a long time fan of Linda McClain and the Catered Crop.  I love the beautiful inspiration boards she puts together to get our creativity jumping.  I am so thrilled to be able to regularly participate now as a designer!


For my Flower Power card for this week’s recipe swap, I decided to use some beautiful Echo Park chipboard and papers that I had sitting on my desk.  I am really starting to love using stickers and chipboard.  It is so fun, versatile, quick and easy. 


2013-03-20 CC Flower power WM


I was inspired by an old SFYTT sketch.  (September 2011-SFYTT) and this beautiful inspiration board aon Pinterest put together by Linda.   I added some Liquid Pearls to the center of the flower to give it a little something extra.



If you click on the inspiration board above, it will take you to the Pinterest board where you can get to the original inspiration and a few tutorials.


I hope my card and this beautiful inspiration board from Linda will inspire you to create a project for the Catered Crop Flower Power challenge.  Stop by the Catered Crop to link up your project and see the challenge details.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
