Monster Hugs!

Thanks for stopping by, I am excited to share these goofy fun loving monsters with you.  They remind me of Monsters Inc.  These stamps are from Your Next Stamp, aren't they cute?

It is a pretty clean and simple card that I made for our Anything Goes and Crazy Egg Challenge #318 over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  These little guys were colored on a girls weekend with Lori and Leanne. Those are far between but honestly are always a blast.

Honestly, not sure where the month has gone but I am happy with my progress for meeting people and exercising. Trying new things can be scary, it is way easier when you have kids involved in activities.

My friends Lori, Leanne and Tina have some really amazing inspiration for you, please hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks to join us in our latest challenge.

Sassy and Guest Designer Call

Good morning my crafty friends.  Welcome to my blog, where I have a brand new DT creation for you.  The card I am sharing with you today is for 4 Crafty Chicks.   For Challenge #314 our hostess with the mostess is Leanne from Banking on Crafts. Leanne would like us to do some Fussy Cutting for this challenge.  We are also looking for 3 Guest Designers one for each month October, November, and December.  Please type GDT behind your name to enter to become a GDT.

My image is from Sassy Studio Designs and is colored with copics. I am sad to say that they have closed up shop but at least I have some fun images to create with. Fussy cutting was done with scissors and a knife. Some embossing with Stampin Up folders, the die cut squares are from My Favorite Things.  The layout design is from Skipping Stones Designs.

Honestly, it is hard to believe that this is the last weekend of summer holidays and then school starts for another year.  I am however looking forward to meeting some new people where we live in Wainwright. Finally being brave enough to put me out there. Wishing everyone a very safe and happy long weekend.

Let's Get Sentimental!


Good morning! It is time for a Sentimental Challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Our one and only Lori has asked us for Challenge #313 to create something using SENTIMENTS.  

This challenge was so much fun.  Cancer has touched most of us in one way or another so when I found this sentiment years ago, it spoke to my heart (Verses The Art of Languages Expressed with Rubber Stamps). It tells us what cancer cannot do to us and our family. I added texture with an embossing folder and then did a triple bow on my handy dandy bow maker that Leanne and Brian gave me.

Please come and join us for Lori's new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  We also have some really amazing inspiration for you to check out.
