Welcome to Scrap Tower, my little corner of the world, where I share my creativity with you.

I enjoy many forms of crafting, from paper crafting to sewing. I make custom greeting cards for family and friends. I've made unique custom cards commissioned by friends.

I am proud to have been a card maker for the organization Operation Write Home (OWH) for several years supplying 1,000+ handmade cards for our HEROES.

I continue to make cards as gifts or to sell and I am testing a few other sewing and crochet projects to sell.

My current charitable project is Sew Powerful Purse and I have sewn and donated 20+ purses in the past two years. I plan to donate 10+ purses in 2018.

I enjoy sharing my creative passion with others, including children in Sunday School and Bible School, etc.

OWH Cute Character Challenge

This week's OWH Midweek Challenge is Cute Characters.  I decided to use this cute pre-colored digital image from Art Explosion's Scrapbook Factory Deluxe (v3.0).  

I had no idea for a layout, so I perused the OWH Sketches for inspiration. I selected Sketch #14 for the layout. I thought I would 'throw' this card together in no time, but I struggled with the elements and colors to use to compliment the image. Please let me know your comments. Do you think this works?
Happy Birthday Elephant
The sentiment is from Hero Arts You're The Best Set #CL545. The background cardstock is BoBunny Buttercup Dot #12BCD396. I used EK Success Swiss Cheese Edger Punch for the blue strip. The blue cardstock and gems are from my stash.

Later I may try to fussy cut the elephant image and try another layout.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing your comments!

Later on Saturday evening ......  

This is the first background I had started for the elephant card above.  It wasn't working for the cute little guy, so I set it aside.  
Elephant ..... this is not working
When I came back to my craft room and saw this one on the desk, it looked like a tie to me.  So .........  LOOK what happened !  
happy DAD day .... now it is working
This took just a few minutes to make the pocket and assemble the card.  Cool huh ???
LOL .... how about that !
