A Cart Full of Flowers :)

Hello!! I am back with my second post for today and am so excited to share my card with you. It was so much fun working with The Stamping Boutigue image Flower Cart. Thank you so much for letting me highlight this image.

My card below was design for our Creative Knockouts Challenge #73 and Kelly would like you to use LOTS OF EMBELLIES. I am embarrassed to admit but I created my card took the pictures and went to place it on our DT blog when I realized that did not follow the challenge. I did not put a single embellishment on except for maybe the ribbon *gasp*. How could this of happened? Well frankly, I just don't know everything is better with embellishments right?? *giggle, snort*.  Thank goodness it was something easily fixed. Out came my brand new pearls and pink candy dots. My top note die one of my favorites. So this is what I came up with, hope you like it.

Copics used E33, E35, E57, RV02, RV66, V05, YR16, BV02, BG45, B12, R29. Top Note, pearls, ribbon.

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
Party Time Tuesdays - Challenge #194 - Anything Goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog - Challenge #221 - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations Challenge - Challenge - #281 - Something New, Something Old (New:image, pearls and candy dots, Old: ribbon, top note die).

Come join us at Creative Knockouts and break out the EMBELLIES. We would love to see what they inspire in you.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  A smile is coming your way :)

There's An App For That...

Good Morning!! Another busy week has come and gone with appointments, rehab work, birthday parties and just enjoying the kids.   Yesterday before we got to my one appointment it started raining and by the time we came out it was frozen. This winter just seems so weird, freezing cold and snow one minute, warm and raining the next.

Today, is a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks! Our hostess is Lori and for Challenge #230 she would like use to do something to represent Best Friends.

Here is my card below.  The image is from Kenny K and so is the sentiment. They are both brand new along with the fabby pattern paper. I was excited to use this image because I have a couple of friends who we are always discussing our apps.  This is so perfect. The papers are from Stampin Up as well as the punch. I had fun coloring this image with Copics. It was a blast putting together all of these colors.  Unfortunately you can not see the Wink of Stella on there eye lids.
Copics used B91, B93, B95, B97, V05, V06, V09, E50, E11, E13, YR21, YR23, YR24, YG93, YG95, YG97, E31, E25, E47, C1, C3, C5, C7, RV66, RV02, YR16

Thank You!!

Good Morning! I hope your week has been a good one. My week has been super busy and trying to get my rehabilitation schedule into something a little more organized...LOL. Not sure this will ever happen but I do have faith. Oh and loving the warmer temperatures too.

Today, I get to share the brand new challenge with you from 4 Crafty Chicks.  We are on Challenge #229 and Flowers is what we want to see.  For me this is something I struggle with even creating this card, I had my idea but then realized after it was glued down that I forgot to add the texture to it. A few words were said but not sure if my faux stitching worked to spruce it up.

The paper, die cuts and stamp was all from Stampin Up.  It is a clean and simple design but hopefully one you like.
Please come on out and join us for this challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks, we would love to see you.

Have an amazing day! Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Christmas with a Sketch

Merry Christmas to you, Merry Christmas to you and Happy Holidays! It is Christmas Eve as I type this and tonight we are waiting for my brother and his kids to get here to break out the games.  It has been a crazy, crazy week trying to get shopping done and I vow right here, right now, we will not ever be last minute shoppers again.  Still can't to watch everyone open their present and have Christmas morning breakfast.

I still can't believe that Christmas is here but when you got time we would love you to join us at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Lori is hostess this week with a very fun challenge! For Challenge #226 she wants us to use her wonderful sketch. I followed this one right down to the bow.  It was a blast to create.

It has been a long time since I broke out my stamps but felt that this is what this sketch needed.  The stamp is from Stampin Up and so is all of the paper and ribbon.
If you have some spare time to get crafty, please grab a cup of java and show us (4 Crafty Chicks) your craftiness.

From my family to yours please have a safe and very happy holidays!!

A Very Merry Christmas with a little Charm

Hello from small town Millet, Alberta! This past week has been crazy busy but oh did I get a chance last night to some very incredible kids play in the band and sing.  There is nothing quite like Christmas songs to bring cheer into your heart. Everyone is so very busy but it is so nice to see everyone stop to take a little breather and just be.

Lucky me, I am your hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks and for Challenge #225, I would like you to break out the Charms. Easy Peasy right??

My creation is below and I used Trim the Tree pattern paper, a punch and a stamp from Stampin up. The snowflakes are punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. It seemed that it was a struggle to find where to put the charm on and with out came my sorely neglected brads and woo-la the rest is history.
Looking for more inspiration we my fellow chicks will not disappoint. Please hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks to check out their creation. We would love to see what you create.

Thanks for pop in and have an fantastic day!!

"I Do", He Said....

Happy Thursday!! Today, I am off to Edmonton for my second workout this week :) It is supposed to be another day with beautiful temperatures. The snow is melting very fast, which can be good or bad with the rain that tends to come with it. Nobody likes freezing rain. The best part is this week my mom is driving me so, that means a little extra time together.

My fellow chick Tina is our wonderful hostess this week and she would like us to make a ONE LAYER creation for Challenge #224. If you need more inspiration my fellow DT's have rocked this challenge out over at 4 Crafty Chicks.

My very clean and simple one layer card below, was so much fun to create. At first it had me stumped but then I remember this stamp from a few years ago...yes it has been sorely neglected. It truly is perfect for this type of card. I colored it with Copics and forgot to write down my numbers.
Please join us at 4 Crafty Chicks for our one layer challenge and show us what it inspires in you.

Wishing you a day filled with smiles. Thanks for stopping by.

It's Beginning To Look Alot Like Christmas!

Hello! It is getting close to Christmas but we seem to be having some warmer temperatures here in central Alberta, that is melting the snow quite fast.  I like that the roads will be clear when going up to the clinic each week. My week so far has consisted of basketball game/tryouts (not for me...LOL, for Tristan and Kaitlyn), Christmas parties, and a little bit of Christmas shopping.

Creative Knockouts has a new challenge for us. For Challenge #67 - Tis The Season (easy peazy right?).  Our wonderful sponsors this week are from Inky Impressions and I would like to thank them for this cute image and sentiment to use this week.

My card below is 6 x 5 1/2. It is colored using copics and the paper is Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Whisper White. The Ribbon is Elegant Egg Plant and Twine.  Hope you like it!
Come on over to Creative Knockouts to play, we would love to have you and see what this season is inspiring in you.

Have an amazing day! Thanks for stopping in.
