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 VCMP Challenge #5

No .... you did not miss it .... I skipped Challenge #4.  It is a stamping technique that I am not sure I have the type of stamps to create.  I will try it, but not this week end.

So .... on to Challenge #5 which is hosted by Sandy's Crafty Creations and it is called Howdy Y'all.  Hi Sandy !  we say y'all here is South Carolina too!!  Sandy's challenge is to create a western card. She suggested a cowboy or horse.  Well, it just so happened that I have three cards that I made over the past several months that fit this challenge.

Here they are ...........
Howdy from Cute Cowgirl
The cowgirl was a purchase from the Scrapbook Clearance - I do not remember which brand it is.
The bandana, denim and burlap papers are from my stash, probably Paper Studio brand.
I used 4 red grommets from my stash and set them with my Crop-a-dile, then laced with natural jute.
The sentiment is computer generated with a Cowboy font download from the internet.

Think of You Roundup
Stamp Image by Stampabilities - Distressed Cowboy #F1207 - found in the Clearance bin !
Stamp sentiment by Hampton Art - We Make A Great Pair collection
Patterned Paper is left over from a Make and Take - I think it is Graphic 45, but I don't remember the collection name.
Burlap is a ribbon scrap from my stash.

Warm Fuzzy Horse Love
More of the same paper and natural jute.
Sentiment is Hero Arts Everyday Sayings collection
The tiny brads were not quite the right shade of brown, so I inked them the same ink used for the sentiment. I think it was Color Box Amber Clay.
All very subtle, but I think it is warm as is the sentiment.

Let me know what you think. I appreciate your comments.  Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Love all three of your cards and each one was perfect for my western challenge! All are very nice but my favorite is the little cowgirl. She's really cute and I love those colors. Y'all have a great evening! :) Glad we can understand each other from different states. Ha, ha. Thanks for joining in on my OWH challenge!
