Fall Wreath, The Beginning of my Decorating

Many years ago, I cross stitched a banner for a grapevine wreath.  I added some sunflowers and a bow to complete it.  For about fifteen years that wreath spent its life in the attic.  Well, I decided to give it a new look and use it.  So, here it is on my front door.



I just love making old things new again.

My Sheri Craft #135 Three In A Row

Hi everyone!  I am back from my absence with the team and so glad to be here.  I am been extremely busy completing my last year of 37 teaching kindergarten.  Packing up 37 years of my life and moving things was interesting, sometimes difficult, and sometimes exciting.  I am now officially a retired teacher!

I am excited to participate in our challenge this week Called Three In A Row.



  I chose to use items in the last vertical row of the game.  I have embossed paper,  flowers and pearls on my card.


I hope you will join our challenge and post your project on the My Sheri Crafts blog, HERE.  Thanks for stopping by, I hope you come back often.

Art In The Hills Was Great!

The art show this past Saturday was fantastic!  I saw so many people I had not seen in a while and love visiting with them.  There was a great variety of art styles at the show.  I only wish I had more time to visit the other artist.  Here are a couple of photos of my place.  I was in a great location and the weather was perfect!!!

Irish You The Best!!!

Hi! and welcome!!! Well March is here, Daylight Savings Time is with us , Spring is right around the corner, and the wearing of the green day will be here is less than a week.  St Patrick's Day is always a fun day with friends and especially fun in my kindergarten classroom.  We all wear green and eat all kinds of green things.  We do a mini unit on Ireland and listen to lots of Irish music.  We play games and I have all kind of things for the prizes.  I also have cards for the children.  Take a look at this cutie.


The little dog with the shamrock is a digital stamp from http://www.papercraftingworld.com.  I colored the little dog to look like a King Charles Spaniel all dressed up for the Wearing of the Green.  The sentiment is also a Paper Crafting World digital stamp.  I added a little yellow and green ink to the edges and layered it to dark green paper.  I used Spellbinder dies to cut and emboss the two images.  I decided to add the cute polka dotted ribbon to the card and then embellish it with sone glittered shamrocks.  Happy Saint Patrick's Day to one and all!!!

Happy Birthday, 105 Years Old!!

Hello everyone and welcome on this glorious day!  I am just so excited to be here and share a special card I made for a special friend.  My dear friend Ruth turned 105 on February 14th!  Is that amazing or what!!!  Yes, she is 105 years old, lives independently in her house.  She does her own yard work, knits caps for babies born premature, cans lots of vegetables in the summer, and best of all, makes a carmel cake to die for!!  And she does all of this without wearing hearing aides or eyeglasses.


I made this card for Ruth's birthday.  I know how much she likes pink and loves flowers.  The cute cake is a digital stamp from Paper Crafting World.  I did a little inking around the edgeswith some pink and them added the little flowers. The flowers are gummed stamps from Jolee's Boutique.  I also created a border for the card with hearts.  (I just had to add the hearts border with her birthday beingon Valentines Day)!  I topped that border with a flowered trim that I had in my sewing stash.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is also a digital stamp from Paper Crafting World.  It too was inked with some pink. Now I know that you would like to see a photo of my friend, Ruth, so……… HERE SHE IS!!


This photo was taken of us at her party.  Isn't she just adorable. Thank you for joining us today.  Come back often for more fun projects.
