About Me

Des Moines, Iowa, United States
Welcome to my blog I am a card making great-grandmother just started paper crafting in 2012. I happened onto some card making sites on the computer and got hooked fast I really do enjoy it. My blog is just to share some of my cards. Leave me a comment and come visit again
I do not have any Thinking Of You cards and I use them quite often.
I will also enter this in the Repeat Impressions challenge to use a sponging
effect or braying on a card, I choose to do the sponging like the effect very
much. I used blue card stock from my stash also white from my stash. I used
some pp from Recollections and stamped the flowers from  the Woodcut Flowers
Set with versamark ink, embossed, it heat set it, and sponged it with a yellow citrus
and Memento Bahama Blue Ink and tied with some twine in blue and stamped
the sentiment with a Inkadinkado stamp.


  1. Wow Betty, this card is stunning! Like you I can always use "thinking of you" cards, and this one is a great one!

  2. Betty, this is GORGEOUS!!! I love that image and how you've popped it with the sponging. Fabulous card and thank you for bringing it over to The House That Stamps Built for the challenge.
