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 Sketch Challenge #114

Hi everybody!!!.  It is Sunday and at OWH it is Sketch Challenge time again.

OK .... I will be perfectly honest and tell you that I am not a huge fan of this sketch. I did, however, manage to put something together that might just work.  
Sunshine DAD
I've been wanting to use this SUNSHINE stamp for a while, by trying the Starburst technique. I will call it the "Sunburst" technique for my card. My idea is for it to appear like the  sun rising out of the dark morning sky. Originally the sentiment was going to be on a circle, but I was inspired by today's sketch to use a diamond. I think it works!

I can almost see this used as a "Spotlight" card for graduation or a recital, play, etc.

Today's OWH Sketch #114

Thank you for stopping by to take a look and leave a kind word!  God bless you!


  1. I thought it was a hard sketch also - stamping on the diagonal is not easy - you did a great job on both cards - and yes I see the spotlight.
