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.

OPERATION WRITE HOME - Sketch Challenge #211

Today's Sketch #211 at Operation Write Home Blog, Stars and Stamps is a very simple one. I have several ideas that I will try using this basic layout.

They are predicting some winter weather for us again this week.  Yesterday was like a spring day reaching the lower 60's.  By tomorrow evening, or Tuesday morning, we are supposed to have some frozen precipitation.  It is too early for the 'experts' to call what form the precipitation will fall. It is a big deal for those of us in the south.

So .... in pursuit of spring, I decided to make a spring card featuring a cute bunny die cut.
Some bunny loves you
Die cut image: Imaginisce Die Cut package #003763  (picked this up at a local $1 store !)
Pattern paper: Paper Studio Mirabelle Plaid
Card Stock:  Scraps from my stash
Embossing folder: Darice Basket Weave (5x7)
Sentiment:   I created the sentiment attempting to copy one that  I had downloaded on line quite a while back but could no longer find in my computer files. The fonts are not exactly the same, but they work.

  1. Like how you used the basket weave EF and the plaid paper - so Easter like and your sentiment is great. You gotta love when you find something so adorable in the dollar store. Nice job. TFS.

  2. Love how everything matches with those soft colors. :)

  3. Susan your card is adorable! The plaid paper is so pretty and the basket weave EF adds so much texture. Great job on the sentiment. Wish I could find cute things like the bunny at my $1 store. Thanks for playing!

  4. Awesome...I had made a couple of cards using that pack also purchase from a local $ store. A job well done on your sentiment...I may need to CASE it! tfs!!!
