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 #154

We have a very fun sketch today for Operation Write Home.  OWH is also promoting cards for kids during January, so I combined the two for Sketch #154.

I am dedicating this Smiling Face Card to my friend Sherry in NM whose second daughter, Mia, was born on Friday, January 4.  Sherry sent me a picture of her beautiful little girl and it made me smile.

Here is today's OWH Sketch #154:


  1. Where is the image from? I absolutely love this card! Tfs!!!

    1. Hi Linda! I actually adhered the image before I made a note of who it is by. I bought a lot of die cut images at the Scrapbook Clearance Store in Pigeon Forge, TN, in November. Most of them are My Mind's Eye and Next Generation and are probably retired. I usually by at least two of each die cut, but only picked up one of these adorable smiley faces ... now kicking myself. Here is a link to their website: http://www.yourscrapbookstore.com/

  2. Very cherry fun card for kids. The smiley face is ideal for this sketch.

  3. Oh my goodness this is so cute! I love how this turned out-- stinkin' adorable!

  4. Your card put a big smile on my face and I'm sure it's going to do the same thing for our heroes! I hope you make some more!

  5. The card is adorable! Everyone loves a smile!

  6. So cute! I love the yellow white an black color combination.

  7. Love your color combination. The patterns are the perfect proportion for the card - well done!!!

  8. Great card. I have the same problem too I finally find the perfect use for something and then see I've only got one.

  9. What a lovely card. Love the color combination and the smiley face.

  10. Oh what a fun and happy card Susan. I love that you used a smiley face. It's a very simple but fun design. Thanks for playing!

  11. A smile never goes out of style! Thanks for the sunshine.
