Supplies for this card:
Turquoise Stamp pad
Various colored markers
A Jillian Vance Design Notebook set
A Jillian Vance Design Autumn Leaves set
I just loved this way this pumpkin looked a little like a sketch (If only I could draw like that). I stamped the notebook paper with Turquoise ink, cut it out, punched the holes out and stamped "Just a Note" and the Give Thanks bible verse in Brown. I colored the pumpkin in various colors and stamped it at the bottom. I mounted the page on Kraft cardstock. Inside I tore a part of another stamped notebook sheet and stamped the sentiment on that. This little notebook page is wonderful for scrapbook journalling, too. Both of these sets can be found at:
Look for my new designs each Monday in October!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
Welcome to Witchy Wednesday! For this little lady, I used Black cardstock, Hot Off the Press Hammered Gold paper, Stazon Black ink, and Adirondack Paint Dabber in Gold. I stamped the witch with the gold Paint Dabber,then added design with a gold pen, tore around the image and inked the edges with the Paint Dabber. I stamped "Wicked" with black Stazon ink. My favorite witch and Wicked are both from A Jillian Vance Design Witchy Poo set, witch can be purchased below. Ok, I know I spelled "which" wrong! LOL!
Until next time,

This is a tag that I designed for A Jillian Vance Design Team. I used Craft Cardstock and Black Linen textured paper by Canson. The Black cats and Brooms and "Free Broom Rides"are from A Jillian Vance Design Team Witchy Poo stamp set which can be purchased at
The ticket is a Tim Holtz Journaling Ticket. It is attached with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. I wrapped Black Licorice Divine Twine around the tag and used black fiber and black and white gingham 3/16 inch ribbon for the top. Divine Twine may also be purchased at the above web site.
I welcome all comments!

I cheated a little on this card. I found the perfect die cut at Red Letter Journals. The tractor was already cut out for me. I added the gold brads to the wheels. I put a little
" Thank You" on gold cardstock. I used brown cardstock to mount the tractor and distressed the edges and inked them in chocolate brown. The card is made with craft card stock. Inside, You're a Deere" is stamped. This cute saying is from the Down on the Farm set of A Jillian Vance Designs stamps. I liked it because it is a good card for a male. Those are hard to find.

This is another witch card I designed with Jillian Vance design stamps. I just love the witch from the Witchy Poo set! I made the card on craft cardstock. I cut the moon out of bright gold cardstock. I liked the looks of the bare tree from the God's Art set for Halloween. I also added the cute little owl from that set. Inside it is stamped with the verse:
When witches go riding
and black cats are seen
The moon laughs and
whispers, tis Halloween.
That verse and many other adorable sayings are in the Witchy Poo set.
Until next time, happy scrappin',

I designed this card using Sizzix Texture Fades Patchwork Embossing folder on black cardstock. I added dimension to it by inking it with a Radiant Rain Dauber in Egyption Gold. I made the moon in gold cardstock and then dabbed it with the same color dauber. I then stamped the witch with Jillian Vance Design stamp from the Witchy Poo set. I put the front on a craft cardstock card and stamped the inside with "Flying by to say Hi". I have to say that this is one of my favorite designs. The "13" on the patchwork texture just seems to pop out when you actually see the card.

I know it has been a while since my last entry (which was also my first entry). I have been busy card making and scrapbooking. Last weekend I went to Amish country to a weekend crop with about 20 fellow scrappers. I made a butterfly-shaped album that my friend Sumi gave me. I also made lots of cards with Jillian's stamps. I had so many ideas running through my head that I started to draw little pictures of the cards I wanted to design. I took a card class on Monday and made a dozen cards. Then yesterday I went to another all day crop at our church and finished covering two word albums (BASEBALL) for my nephew, Brock.
This week my project will be to sort through my scrapbook room and see if there is anything that I can bear to part with, for a Scrapbook Garage Sale that my friends are having this Friday and Saturday in Plain City. As one friend put it, we will all be our own best customers! Busy, Busy! Good thing I am retired!
Until next time, Happy Scrappin'!

I am really excited to be starting my own blog. I am not really very techy but this seems pretty self-explanatory. I will begin very soon to post some ideas on this site. I would like to show some of my pages and cards here for everyone to view.
Welcome to my new blog!
Just a few cards I made a while ago:
