PWCO DT Newbie


Today I get to share some good news. I am now part of the PaperWorks Co DT!   I remember being introduced to them through my friend Sheena B. Thanks Sheena! I have also had the pleasure of creating with Steph J, and with Danielle.  The craft community can seem so big, but I have been truly fortunate to meet wonderful ladies and maintain friendships with them as well, bridging the geographical gap.  So I am really excited about this new adventure.  Thank you Peggy for taking me on as one of your DT members!

I am always inspired by sketches, but this week I tried out the PWCO recipe “A shaped card (anything besides square or rectangle), a sports image, and some embossing…“ I think these recipe challenges are my “new thing”! I was stumped at first as to where I should emboss, but then I saw the red stars in the design paper and had that AHA moment, and embossed the edges of the scalloped circle card. The embossing powder even smells like cherries! Hence the inspiration to add the word Summertime to the card, cherries to me are a summer treat.

Like I said, I had so much fun with this one. Right down to making the Zach’s hair messy looking. I finished the card off by adding the gingham ribbon, and balancing out the colors by putting a safety pin in the center, adding some red and green beads. I hope you enjoy my “debut” project.
