I would love to thank them for letting me use this cute, cute, cute image called Umbrella Teddy.  We are on Challenge #91 and are doing a fun, fun, fun challenge.

Girls Just Want To Have Fun!!

As I type up my post tonight, I am overwhelmed with feelings and I must add quite a few tears. On Friday night is the first part of our oldest sons Graduation from grade 12.  Time really has flown by so fast from a baby to an adult in no time.  We are very proud of him and the young man he has become.

Over at 4 Crafty Chicks we have a brand new challenge for you.  Our wonderful hostess is Lori. For Challenge #248 she would like us to create something that reminds us of SUMMER. My card above is made mostly of pattern paper from doodlebug.  I am going to be so sad when this paper is gone, I just love, love, love it :) Nothing like a nice cold popsicle on an beautiful summer's day!  I remember several of my friends from Junior High singing Girls just Want To Have Fun by Cindi Lauper. Summer holidays were always the best, enjoy the taste of fresh fruit, sun, sand, water and friends.

Come on join us for basically Summer in May, how does it inspire you? I look forward to seeing what you have to share with us at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Sharing in you Sorrow

Hi! Welcome back to my blog.  I have a brand new DT creation to show you. It is my lucky week to give you a challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks as a hostess.  The type of creation I am asking you to make for Challenge #247 is something to do With Sympathy.

My card above is made with Early Espresso paper and old olive as well as both of those Stampin Up markers and old olive ink.  I took the time to emboss a piece of paper with Darcies Clouds embossing folder, then fussy cut them out.  I used a banner punch, old olive ribbon and the stamp is from Stampin Up Thoughts & Prayers.

My fellow chicks have some amazing creations to show you for this challenge. These items are very hard for me to make as I know it is a challenge for others. I look forward to seeing how everyone inspires us chicks this week.

Thanks for stopping by
Have an amazingly wonderful day!

Acorn Harvest!

Good Morning! It is so hard to believe that it is already May 14.  The time is flying by and well our weather is keeping us on our toes. I am very happy that we have had some sun the last few days and each day there is wind.  Sometimes it is cold others it is warm. Some exciting news our daughter so far has made the track team for shot put and discus.  She has a few more things to try out for so we will be waiting to here.  Onto why you are here.

It is my pleasure to show you my new DT card for Creative Knockouts.  For Challenge #89 we are asking you to use Washi Tape.  This is the first time I have used it have quite a bit of it but Kelly gave me the challenge of using it. White and yellow stripes and another color. The picture below I think shows the washi tape better with the flash but not the image.

Our sponsor is Sami Stamps and they graciously let me use Acorn Harvest. It was a blast to color her up and give her to her friend for her birthday. Thank you so much!

Prize is a $12 Gift Certificate
Please come join us for our brand new challenge over at Creative Knockouts.  My fellow DT's have fantastic inspiration. We would love to see how you use Washi Tape.

Amazing, Incredible One Who Does It All!

Today is Thursday and do you know what that means? It is time for another 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge. Tina has a super fun challenge for us are you ready for it? On Challenge #246 us Chevrons. 

Well this challenge was super perfect because I had just bought Chevron paper from My Minds Eye and then I ran to my Cuttlebug and broke out my Chevron embossing folder. It is a clean and simple design and the sketch I found on Pintrest but apologize for not writing down the person who made the sketch. The stamp is from Stampin Up Messages For Mom. A corner punch was used and scissors to make the tail. The paper used is basic black and certainly celery.

Please join us for this fun and simple challenge of Chevrons. I look forward for looking at your wonderful works of art.  

Thank you for popping in and looking at my card.
Have an amazing day!

Jenny Flowers and Butterflies

It is Thursday and I am back with another brand new DT creation and a brand new challenge at Creative Knockouts.  We are on Challenge #87 and we want to see you FINISH THE INSIDE. Our sponsor for this month is Color Ink Digital Stamps. I chose to use Jenny Flowers and Butterflies. It was so much fun to color her and the sentiment was absolutely perfect for Mother's Day.
Man this was a good challenge for me, since I never ever, ever finish the inside of the card until I have too. Great challenge Kelly.  A friend of mine made a resolution of sorts this year to finish all of the insides of her cards, when she makes them.  I think this should be mine for next year or maybe next month...LOL.

My image was colored using Copic markers...???
The prize is 
I can't wait to see the outside and inside of your creations!! It is an easy challenge so hopefully you will come on over to Creative Knockouts and show us your inspiration.

Sending a smile your way. May some craftiness be what relaxes you today.

Have an amazing day!!

Masculine Happy Birthday

Good morning to ya all! As I am writing up this post my cats are being so funny, it actually sounds like a herd of elephants running through the house and like car tires spinning when they go around the corners. I just love it when something simple brings so much joy.

There is a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks this week and since we have 5 Thursdays in April we will have the Top Picks and a Crazy Egg pick.  Our wonderful hostess for challenge #244 is easy....Anything Goes :)

My card is up above and the stamp is from Flourishes, sentiment is from a Totally Stampalicous set. I used Early Espresso, Whisper White, scallop punch and 6x6 My Minds Eye.

We would love to have you come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks. My fellow chicks have some amazing inspiration for you.

Thank you so much for sharing in my latest DT project.

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!

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!

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.
