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 #117

I am still working on Father's Day cards, so I used today's Sketch #117 to create another one. The sock was inspired by a card I saw in Paper Crafts Magazine (May/June 2012, pg 77).  I created a sock pattern and cut the pieces with my Craft Robo.  My circle is a little bigger than 2.5", so I re-positioned the the two 1.25" x 3" pieces a little farther apart than the Sketch.
Socks for Father's Day
Papers are SEI Grandpa's Attic and cardstock and ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado Happy Everything set.

Below is OWH Sketch #117.


  1. What a fun card! I love the papers and the socks are great! :)

  2. This is a great mix of patterns - it works so well! Love those socks!

  3. I love the great mix of papers. The argyle works so well with the stripes. (Mixing those papers was what threw me at first when I saw the challenge because it's such a straight line. I like how you divided them. And the socks made me laugh. Too cute!

  4. I definitely need some of that paper! Thanks for sharing...there are alot of great cards to case in that issue!

  5. Love all the papers you used. The card is funny.

  6. Such a great mix of elements for a Father's Day card. :)

  7. Really nice! And thanks for giving us the Paper Crafts mag citation. Someone's father will enjoy receiving this one ;)

  8. Great Father's Day card!! Your papers are a great choice for your awesome card. thanks for sharing ~ Pam

  9. How fun! Those socks are too cute! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!
