About Me

Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 54 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, jewelry making, stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

CAS Outlawz Challenge January 13, 2013

This week’s CAS challenge on The Outlawz was to make a card with a music theme. I used spirelli to create my image. I sponged ink onto the background and tag to give it some depth.

The Outlawz CAS challenge 1/6/2013

I was honored to be asked to be a guest designer on The Outlawz CAS team for the month of January. My first card theme was to “use something new”. I’m new to tatting so I started there. I added some new tatting thread, a new crystal teardrop, a new stamp and there you have it….my new card.

Monday’s card challenge on the Outlawz was to create a project with a vintage feel. Nothing feels more like vintage than a pretty piece of tatting….and nothing says vintage worse than a misshapen piece. This heart is terrible but it wasn’t my fault…really…the pattern had two mistakes in it!
