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 Virtual Card Making Party (VCMP) Challenge #1

Hello !  Labor Day has been a 'wash out' - it has rained almost all day.  Not so good for our home town Labor Day Festival or a BBQ, but a GREAT day for card making!!  I have actually been at it since Friday evening after work.  My goal for the weekend - to finish off a box of cards of at least 100 cards to send to Caro.  When I reached 95 sometime on Saturday, I stopped counting.  I have 110 cards as of this moment.

Operation Write home hosted a Virtual Card Making Party on Saturday & Sunday.  I had cards in my box that fit some of the challenges and they are cards that I have not previously posted, so I am posting them for the VCMP. I spent some time Sunday evening and today trying to make cards for the rest of the challenges in VCMP.

Challenge #1 - OWH partnered with  Our Daily Bread Designs monthly challenge to create cards with Scripture or uplifting quote or sentiment.  I already had this one prepared.

Matthew 19:26
This card was assembled using scraps and flowers from my stash, Jubliant Waves embossing folder by  Lifestyle Crafts  and All Things Are Possible stamp by  Stampabilities .  I did not have a brad in the right shade of yellow, so I colored a pale yellow brad with a Copics  sketch marker to achieve the shade coordinating with the yellow cardstock.

  1. What a lovely choice of colors you used on this card! I love chevrons...I'll have to look into that embossing folder. Great job, and thanks for sharing!
