Note of Love

Today, we have a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Our beautiful hostess is Lori from Caffeinated Creativity. She would like us to make a creation using our Favorite Designer/Company. It was a fun challenge but a tough one for me too because I love so many companies.  After lots of thought I decided that most of what is in my craft room is Stampin Up, so this is the company I chose.

The above creation is made with the following Stampin Up supplies:
Stamp: Lots of Thoughts
Paper: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Brick Wall & Chevron embossing folders, squares from the Window framelits, Banner framelits, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Banner punch, Sizzlits 4-pk Lots of tags, Jewels Basic Pearls, Jewels Basic Rhinestone

Here is to hoping that you have enjoyed what I designed with the Stampin Up product in my craft room.

Looking for more inspiration our GDT and my fellow DT's have highlighted their favorites Designers/Company beautifully. We would love to see who is your's at 4 Crafty Chicks.

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.

Let's Par Tee

Hello! It is my pleasure to show you this cute image from Fabrika Fantasy, it is called Champion Eagle. They are our sponsor for this week's challenge over at Creative Knockouts.  Our new challenge is called ANIMAL ANTICS - #151.

Prize: 3 Images

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.

Come over to Creative Knockouts and show us what Animal Antics mean to you.

Thanks for stopping by.

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.

Hello my friends and thanks for visiting! I hope this last week has been a good one for you.  It has been an excellent one for me our middle son Robin got his license and our oldest son surprised us with a visit for a few days.  I really treasure those time, we get to spend with them. Next will be our daughter getting her Learner's.  Let's get to why you are really here.

Today is Thursday and 4 Crafty Chicks has a brand new challenge and a brand new Guest Designer.  Our guest designer for the month of June is Melanie from "mycraftysmell". Our talented hostess this week is Leanne.  For challenge #301 she would like use to create something Masculine.  I am so thankful that she choice this challenge because man, I tend to have problems doing these cards. 

With Father's day coming up around the corner this was a perfect time for a masculine card. My inspiration for my card is from Stampin Cafe by Lana. I didn't have everything to create this so made some changes. I would like to try this card again. Below is another picture with a gift card in the front. On the inside is a personal message to my dad. 
My fellow chicks in our hen house have some amazing and wonderful creation to inspire you. We would love it if you joined us at 4 Crafty Chicks with your Masculine creations. I need more inspiration friends.
