Let's Get Sentimental!


Good morning! It is time for a Sentimental Challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Our one and only Lori has asked us for Challenge #313 to create something using SENTIMENTS.  

This challenge was so much fun.  Cancer has touched most of us in one way or another so when I found this sentiment years ago, it spoke to my heart (Verses The Art of Languages Expressed with Rubber Stamps). It tells us what cancer cannot do to us and our family. I added texture with an embossing folder and then did a triple bow on my handy dandy bow maker that Leanne and Brian gave me.

Please come and join us for Lori's new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  We also have some really amazing inspiration for you to check out.

I dug way back into my Stampin Up stamps to use Silly Sealife.  The way and turtle are so very cute! It was fun breaking out the paper pack and using bright colors too.  I love summer time when you get to see so much wildlife.

Happy Anniversary!

Hello! Today is a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks. Our beautiful  hostess this week is Tina from Tina's Creative Place. Tina would love us to use FLOWERS for Challenge #307.  

Flowers can be a hard one for me to use....*gasp*.  It is true, so on this creation, I went a little overboard on the flowers.  Truly I ogle over my fellow DT's/GDT on what they create.  The card above was made using Stampin Up punches, stamp, embossing folder and framelits. Wish I could tell you where the pattern paper came from but not too sure.

Please join us this week for our FLOWER Challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks.

My card is made with Stampin Up paper and it is colored with Copic's. It sure made me giggle trying to think of a funny sentiment to go with it. Wish the picture was better but you get the idea.

Woo Hoo!

Welcome to my blog.  I have a new creation for you. This DT card was made for 4 Crafty Chicks where our beautiful hostess Leanne from Banking On Crafts.  Leanne for Challenge #306 would like us to make a creation involving SUMMER!!

My card above was made using Doodlebug Fruit Stand paper.  I was so excited to try and make this beach ball. The layout I found on Pinterest (Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking free downloads) is bigger but I made a smaller one to fit on a card.  A black stampin up marker (faux stitching), twine, marker and wink of Stella was used for the beach ball. Two circle punches were used for the woo hoo. 

It is so hard to believe it is the first Thursday in July but we will be enjoying every day of summer holidays. 

Be sure to check out our Summer challenge and my fellow DT's/GDT for more inspiration.
