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 Mid Week Throwdown - Turquoise & Silver

It is a color challenge for the Mid Week Throwdown over  at Operation Write Home. The colors are turquoise and silver.

The sample card posted is by Marlene at Cubbyhole Creations  and it is beautiful, but this is not a color combination that I usually think of.  I've been wanting to use a cut file posted by Bird over at Birds Cards so I decided to incorporate that into my MWT card today. The dot on the snowflake in the lower left corner is Ranger white enamel accents

OWH Sketch #145

Hello everyone!  Wow, I can not believe that November is here already.

Today's Operation Write Home Sketch #145 is a simple sketch, but it will be a great one to use for many different occasions.  I have started making Love and Valentine cards for OWH, so that is the theme for Sketch #145.

The background pattern paper is a XOXO tone on tone design, so the sentiment repeats that. My center piece is only 3 x 4.25 instead of 3 x 4.5 because I had a scrap already cut to that size. It is embossed with "love" words and symbols.

XOXO Love
