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 #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 

Pattern Paper:   The Paper Studio - All Seasons pad
Sentiment:        Paper Crafts Magazine, Feb 2012 edition   
                               (It can be downloaded from www.PaperCraftsMag.com/sentiments)
Embossing Folder:   LifeStyle Crafts - Sweetheart set

Here is the OWH Sketch
