Apple Emma


Hello! It is Thrusday and I am back with another DT card for 4 Crafty Chicks! Our lovely hostess this week is Lori and for challenge #243 she would like us to create something INSPIRED BY A BOOK.  I love this kind of a challenge because I love, love, love books.  As I was looking through my stamps, there were many that were suited to several books but Apple Emma by CC Designs has been ignored for a very long time.  While I was looking at her it popped into my head that I could use it for the book SNOW WHITE.  The apple at the top of the page is the only one colored with Wink of Stella for the poisoned apple.  The rest of it was colored using Copic's and the stamp at the bottom is Simply Said from Stampin Up.
We have had a busy week and the weather has been so beautiful.  We went and got my son his suit for graduation oh man did he look good and well I must say it was hard to hold the tears back.  Kaitlyn finished off her Provincial volleyball for club but is walking on crutches.  Their was many positives for me at my rehabilitation center this week too.  Hope your week has been one made of some memories.
I would like to enter it into:
One Crazy Stamper - April - Anything Goes
Addicted To Stamps Challenge Blog- Challenge #141 - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination - Challenge #30 - Anything Goes

Please come on out and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks. I just can't wait to see what Inspired by a book has you create!!

Thank you for sharing my new card with me!

Thank you to a Day for Daisies as they are our sponsor for this challenge. They kindly let me use the image called Small Friend.

I have gotten a chance to get a little bit crafty this past weekend which was nice.  When we went shopping, there was an awesome deal on copics so I bought a few.  Not to get those color combos working...yahooo! Here is hoping you have gotten a chance to get a little crafty this week.  We would love to see you at Creative Knockouts.

Have a fantastic day!!

Hello Dolly!


Hello my friends! It has been a great week so far filled with tons of wind, some rain but the sun was a beautiful sight. I even got to have a good weekend with my family and friends. 

So we have a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks this week, where I am the hostess. I would like to see what FAIRIES inspire in you for Challenge #242.

My card above was my attempt at a monochromatic card. Not sure how this turned out for a fairy card, but I do love this CC Designs image.  It was colored using copics. Wink of Stella was also used but unfortunately there wasn't the right light for it.

Please come join us at 4 Crafty Chicks. We would love to see what fairies inspire in you.

Thanks for popping in.

Have a wonderful week.

No image and no sentiment

Good Morning! Today is Thursday so we have a brand new challenge for you over at 4 Crafty Chicks!!  Our extremely talented Tina is our hostess this week.  For Challenge #241 she would like us to use Die Cuts.  So I broke them out, circles, squares, the pointed circle, the flourish and of course it was fun to tilt the stripe papers in different directions. 

My kids are home this week for Easter holidays and I must say it has been very, very nice.  Our treat was going to see Fast & Furious 7. It was one of the best ones but also very sad.  They did an amazing job writing Paul Walker out and paying tribute to him.

We would love it if you showed us what and how you used your die cuts on your creation this week.  My fellow DT chicks and GDT has tons of inspiration for you.

Have an amazing day and may it hold some smiles your way!!
Thanks for sharing my latest card with me.

Cuddle Bun Baby


Good, good morning! We have had some amazing weather this past week and boy has it been nice. One very nice thing about my weekend was that on Sunday I was able to cheer my daughters club volleyball team on, see Lori, Kim and I actually drove my longest distance yet. it makes for a great day.

We have a brand new challenge for you over at Creative Knockouts for Challenge #81. Kelly would love to see you make a Shape Card.  This is a challenge for me but I love challenges.Our sponsor for this week is Meljens. I would love to thank them for letting me use this very cute image Cuddle Bun Baby. Their shop is closing so hurry on over and look for some great deals, not to mention the many fabulous images.
Meljen Designs
My card is above and it was super fun to color this image (using copics) and to decide what shape card I could make. I had to face time my friend Leanne to help me remember how to cut out the shape card so it could open.:)  So when I completed the card and tried to take a picture I never once considered that the rounded bottom would not let it stand open....oh man. :0 

Please hop on over to Creative Knockouts and join us for our new challenge. I would love to comment on your card. Looking for more inspiration well my fellow DT's will not disappoint.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a blessed Day!!

Hi...


Good Morning! This week, is going to be awesome and very busy. Visiting family and watching Tristan and his basketball team, also the girls basketball team at Provincials too. Enough of this and onto why I am posting.

It is my turn to be the hostess over at 4 Crafty Chicks! Well I chose to do an inspirational photo for us and of course with spring around the corner, we get to see lots of flowers and quite a few kittens wandering around. I love kittens and thought this one was adorable. My take on this picture is above. The image on my card is a free one from a coloring book.  I just love the image and the cats smile.


If you are looking for more inspiration then please, hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and see what my wonderful fellow GDT and DT have for you. 

Have an awesome day!!

I'm So Glad....



Good, good morning! I am super excited to share my latest DT creation with you from 4 Crafty Chicks! Our wonderful hostess for Challenge #235 is our one and only Lori.  She would like us to use her wonderful SKETCH to design a card! It is a super fun sketch to create with!

This past week has been super busy for going to rehab, (working my mind and body), cheering for our sons basketball team, doctors appointments, counselling appointments and trying to play catch up on some house work.  Truly wish that my body would/could do more at once, alas it is still a long journey ahead and some days I am on top of the world kicking butt and other times my body just does not cooperate.  What is in store for your weekend? We will be watching our daughter play in a U13 volleyball tournament,

If you are looking for more inspiration please do not hesitate but hop right on over to 4 Crafty Chicks where our GDT and fellow chicks have rocked it out. I look forward to hopping to your blogs.

Have an amazing day!!
