The "Martha" in me...

2 different cards



Picture frame-covered with paper, felt pieces and rub-ons.







The "Martha" in me is emerging I think. For as long as I can remember as a little girl, I have always loved paper. Yes I'm probably some kind of weirdo. I love paper. The feel of it, how it looks, smells (that's probably the strange part), different textures, patterns, colors. I also love pens...but I'm digressing, I'll get back to the paper. I used to stamp and make cards a lot when Nick was younger and I've gotten out of it...until now. In the past year I've really gotten into this, uhh... I'll tell the truth. I'm addicted. I'd probably do Martha proud...no, I don't have a perfectly arranged craft room. My craft room consists of a messy dining room table. Anyway in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin Winter, I've been making cards (and recently a picture frame) to my hearts content. It relaxes me and it's something I can do when Grace is asleep. I'm no cooking "Martha, but I can attempt to be a crafty "Martha." :)





I'll admit that the flower card was "adapted" (I changed it a bit) from a stamp catalog. I won't claim it's an original creation.

You did a great job! I especially like the one with teal/brown...2 of my current favorite colors.

I have the same addiction with digital scrapbooking. Right now I have to make myself get away from the computer and do something productive (like cleaning :)
