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 #115

This is a fun sketch!  I am packing for a business trip next week, or I would be making several more cards using this sketch tonight. 
Woo Hoo Card
In Sandy's Vlog today, she shared that our Heroes asked for "brown" cards. While they are most likely asking for masculine cards, I literally made a card in brown monotones using today's sketch.

Paper:         American Crafts, the goods series - Cummerbund, Boutonniere, and  Confetti.
Sentiment:   Hero Arts This is Big set CL570.
Ribbon:       Clearance bin at A.C. Moore for a quarter .... Woo Hoo.  LOL

I packed my clothes for my trip, but I have also packed a craft bag to give me something to do in the evenings!

Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are appreciated.


  1. Oh so masculine and brown. The guys who asked for brown are sure to love this one.

  2. Love this card and I'm sure the recipient will also. I have to get my browns out also. Thanks for sharing and travel safe.

  3. Oh, I love that. And, although it's brown, it's very gender neutral. That's super! And wow, aren't you efficient taking crafts on a business trip!

  4. Love the monotones! They asked for browns and they're getting browns! lol Great card.

  5. Great monotone card, Susan! And I love that sentiment! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  6. This is a fab monotone card! Love clearance ribbon!!!

  7. What an awesome card! I like the colors; so elegant with a surprising, fun sentiment. Woo Hoo!!
