Happiness is...

Good good morning! We are heading towards our Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. We had some huge winds this past weekend and boy oh boy did the leaves fall down to the ground. The richness of the colors just keeps me in awe of the beauty of nature.

Over at 4 Crafty Chicks we have a brand new challenge for you.  Tina is your hostess this week and she gave us a fun, fun challenge. 


Believe it or not this is the first time I have done something like this. Fall colors were in my mind and well I was trying to recreate a sunset but not sure if that happened.  Stamps used were from Stampin Up and Verve.  Markers from stampin up.

Please breakout your crafting supplies and come crafting with us over at 4 Crafty Chicks. We would love to see your creations.

Have an amazing day!

Nature Tots Series - Flower Sent

Good afternoon! It is a sunny blue skied day here in Millet Alberta. The wind has slightly picked up and the colors of all of the trees are simply an artists portrait.

 Sorry to my fellow Creative Knockouts family for the lastness of my post this week.  I got messed up on my weeks and then when looking for my card, I realized that it was given away. Did I take any pictures nope. It was then that I took notice of the mess that I got myself into.  I was super super frustrated.  Now for my newly colored image and new card.

We are on CHALLENGE #109 and Kelly would like you to make a creation with LOTS OF LAYERS.

Our sponsor for this week is Lemon Shortbread and they are offering up a chance to Win 3 Digi's.

I am using the Flower Sent image, love, love, love it.

Please hop on over to see the marvelous work of my fellow teammies and show us what lot's of layers looks like to you.

Thanks for stopping by.

Breaking Out The Washi Tape

Hello and happy 1st day of October! It seems like school just started but some of my friends were talking and saying that their kids in College/University are writing midterms already.  I just couldn't believe it.  Today, is my lucky day, I get to go watch Kaitlyn's team play a volleyball game but before I get to go play the work needs to be done.

It is Thursday and the very first week of the month.  So we have our very talented Leanne with our challenge and we are introducing Guest Designer for this month.  Her name is Emily!  

Challenge #266
Washi Tape
So this challenge was super dooper fun.  I started making my card and well to be honest got a little bit stumped after I got the washi tape laid down.  My mom gave me these long sheets of Washi Tape by Stampin Up, it is sooooooo cool.  You can use it with die cuts make it as big or as small as you want. Each strip is a from one in this package.  My stamps have been a little lonely so, dusting this one off, it just seemed like the right size.  A touch of bling and ribbon/bow to finish off this quick and easy Washi Tape creation.

Hope you enjoy this card.  My fellow chicks have amazing creations for you this week.  We would love to see yours.

Remember to share a smile it just might make someones day!!

Happy Anniversary!!

Welcome to my blog from small town Millet, Alberta.  As I am typing this the sky is a beautiful blue and it is breezy. The sun is getting ready to set but a very nice fall night. It is hard to believe that we have already welcomed in fall and that September doesn't have many days left in it.  My excitement for today is that I get to watch my daughters first volleyball game of the year and she already has a tournament this weekend. So awesome. Let the games begin :) .

Today is a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and our hostess is our beautiful chick Lori.  For Challenge #265 she would like us to use Sparkle and Shine.  My card above has sparkley or shiny paper.  I also used dazzling diamonds and my Wink of Stella.  The brown paper is very shiny and sparkly.  The flourish of pearls was my touch of bling. My layout is very simple but I wanted to highlight this stamp.

Please hop on over to our 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge Blog.  I would love to see you amazing creations. My fellow teamies have amazing creations to share with you.

Thank you so much for taking a peak and leaving comments for me.  I truly appreciate them.

Happy Fall Y'all

It sure is starting to feel a lot like fall now. We never turn our furnace on until the middle or end of October but we broke down the other day and turned it on. It has been chilly and cloudy here the last few days with rain.  I won't complain because the air smells wonderful and we really could use the rain. Unfortunately once again it is at the wrong time as the farmers are trying to get their crops harvested.

Kelly has a brand new challenge for us over at Creative Knockouts. For Challenge #107 - Happy Fall Y'all.  Easy right.  I love this time of year with the rich multitude of colors.  I would like to thank Sami Stamps who is our sponsor this month for letting me use this very, very cute image Little Acorn Hoot.

Prize: $12 Gift Certificate
My fellow DT's have inspiration that will knock your socks off.  Please hop on over to Creative Knockouts, share some love and grab a cup of java and join us. 

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.  Here is to many blessings coming your way.

Celebrate with a Bang!!!

Hello! I have my post ready to go this week and on time...Hee hee. Another crazy week here in the Camp house hold. Just like everyone else. Let Volleyball begin :)  September flying by the month is half over...wait a minute didn't it just start.  

A funny story for you.  I have my very first cell phone, I know it is a terrible shock for everyone who knows me (giggle, giggle, snort).  Well I was driving with my middle son to his school orientation and we used the maps app to get there (Edmonton).  He asked me if I could tell where we should turn.  I said no this stupid thing isn't working, I started it and everything (in fairness I did). There was no voice, like on my husbands or Tristan's phone telling me turn right in 300, 250, 30 meters etc.  Well apparently the part I turned on was only showing us what direction we were travelling in. After a few trials of no I you need to turn there and Robin saying where is there (my brain could not for the life of it think to say move over to the left lane, all I could say was there...hee hee)(brain fart #40). I was pointing but apparently that wasn't enough.  He gets the app working at the stop light and we get to where we are going.  He starts laughing and says. "Mom do you remember when we were younger and we used to say something was over there.  You would get frustrated because you didn't know where over there was, well I just experienced it. Where actually is there?" We laughed so hard. Hopefully this makes sense.  I tend to confuse everyone since the accident, so forgive me if my rambling doesn't make sense.

It is my turn to host 4 Crafty Chicks this week and for Challenge #264 please break out the circles. I love circles! You can use, buttons, dies, punches and oh don't forget those embossing folders.  It was a blast to color this image and to use these colors.

Please come and join us this week. We would love to have you. Looking for more inspiration my fellow chicks have done an outstanding job.

May plenty of smiles come your way!
Thanks for sharing this card with me today.

Happy Birthday!

So sorry for the extreme lateness of my post.  My mom informed me that I didn't have my card posted today.  It has been a crazy time here with me having a bleed in my left eye and my hubby has not been good healthwise. Lot's of appointments.

Tina is our hostess this week and she is challenging us to Birthday for our Challenge #263 over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  You still have time to play.

I love this image and it was fun to add the texture to the image.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have an amazing day!!!

I just realized this so you can personalize the book. I actually just noticed this when linking the image for you...LOL.

Guest Designer Call and Fall Challenge

Hello!!! I hope this 1st Thursday is going well. Last night I have discovered that I have definitely lost my crafting mind. Thinking I have not completed a project to only notice when I go to post it that I have already done this weeks challenge.  For another one, I colored an image three weeks in advance and then realized that I wasn't coloring the right image when I looked up what the challenge was.  So it might be the first day of school for my daughter but my brain needs a break....LOL.

Our hostess with the mostess is our one and only talented Leanne.  Her challenge for us is to create something to do with Fall for Challenge #262.  We are also holding a Guest Designer call for the months of October, November and December.  If you would like to join our team for one of these months please added GDT behind your name.  The Chicks would love to have you.

My image was colored on a weekend away with two of my chicks. It was so nice to laugh, color and just enjoy one another.  The paper is from Stampin Up and the flowers, leaves were from my long forgotten stash.

Please come and join us this week with your Fall creations. We would love to see you. Don't forget my fellow chicks have some very cool Fall master pieces to show you and put GDT after your name if you would love to join us for a month.

Thanks for joining me for my second post today.  Happy September 3rd.

Unusually Colored Hair

Good morning! The last couple of days have been warm but oh man have they been smoky.  My thoughts and prayers are with everyone fighting the wild fires and those that have been moved from their homes.

This past week has flown by but I am here with my newest DT creation for 4 Crafty Chicks. Our beautiful hostess this week is Lori and for Challenge #261 she wants you to do something with Unusually Colored Hair.

So with my above card, I got a little crazy and colored the Donkey's hair pink.  It was so much fun...what would you do if you actually saw a donkey's hair died pink.  Maybe I can start a trend *laughing so hard*. Pretty clean and simple but I was super happy to break out my flowers. Tying the knots in the ribbon I haven't done in a long time. Had to dig deep into the memory bank.  My image is from Your Next Stamp and so is the sentiment.

We would love to have you join us and I would love to pop in and see your creative works. My fellow DT's and GDT have awesome inspiration for you. Please hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks to check it out.

You Da Bomb

Hello all! Today is Thursday and I am back with my first post of the day for 4 Crafty Chicks! Today, I am your hostess with the mostess and for Challenge #260, I want you to DISTRESS your creations.

My image up top is this cute little bomb and the sentiment are both from Your Next Stamp.  The image is colored with Copics and the sentiment ink is Memento Tuxedo black. This little bomb was colored while enjoying Lori and Leanne's company, it was so much fun.

It is hard to believe that school is just around the corner for us.  The weather has been amazing and honestly really nice. Some how once again, I have not been able to hang with my friends but the time with my family has been a blessing too.

The winds of grace....

Good morning! It is another glorious summer day here in Millet, Alberta.  The weather has been very hot this week. I am looking forward to seeing our daughter as it is her first time away at camp.

Today is Thursday and you know what that means....a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks. Our wonderful hostess with the mostess today is our one and only Tina.  For Challenge #259 she would like to see the Nautical Theme.

My card above it made out of pattern paper my mom gave me at Christmas time. It is super cool. Leanne had given me this really cool anchor but for the life of me I couldn't find it.  So I took an sentiment from an old stampin up set and fussy cut the octopus and the whale. The twine is what I thought could be like rope on a boat. Another clean and simple card from me.

We would love to see you join us at 4 Crafty Chicks this week for our Nautical Theme challenge.

Wishing you a fabulous week, may it include some crafting.

Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting.
