Tis The Season


Good afternoon friends!
My post for 4 Crafty Chicks is a few days late
It has been a hectic time but it sure is 
nice to get into my craft room and create a new
creation each week.

Our wonderful hostess this week is Nance
and she has a fun filled challenge, that had me digging
into my old stash of stamps.

Challenge #381 Christmas/Winter Critters

The first thing I did this week was remember this stamp
Animals at Christmas time are super dooper cute
I adore penguins and I love, love, love bears.
Just had to find this oldie but goodie.
So out came the dazzling diamonds, the copic markers,
dies, embossing folder and pattern paper to create this card.

We would really love to see you join us this week.
You still have time to play at 4 Crafty Chicks
as our challenge ends on Tuesday 12 noon
Mountain Standard Time
Be sure to share some love with our fellow DT's and GDT
Their inspiration is simply fabby

Merry Christmas


Good morning!
Today at 4 Crafty Chicks, we have an Anything Goes Challenge
Lori is our hostess for Challenge #379.

Summer found this cool card that she cased last weekend from Pinterest. Should have taken a picture of her favorite one (next time, she is very talented). Click for details from Gemma Evans 
DIY Christmas Cards: Reindeer Fingerprint Cards
It was fun to try and do my own take on this card. 
It was a little different in my head but I think a reindeer tree is kind of fun.
Creamy Caramel ink is what I used for the reindeer faces, along with my fingers. The noses were made using real red ink and a pencil eraser. A fine tip marker for the antlers and eyes. A green felt marker for the tree, and of course some dazzling diamonds.

An easy design and one that will be so much fun to make with our grandson Emery one day!

Please come and join us this week. We would love to see your creations.
Thanks for sharing this card with me.
Have an amazing day

Let It Snow!


Good morning! 

Happy Thanksgiving to our family/friends in the states.

Our wonderful hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks is Lori!

For challenge #378 she is challenging us to create using the theme of Winter Activities.  

It has been snowing and blowing here so it was fun to think of what stamp to use. I got thinking of all of the snowball fights that we used to have with our kids and snowman building. So digging in my old stamps sets I went.  This stamp set is from Stampin' Up, an oldie but a goodie. Hope you like it.

Please join for our latest challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Brrr....


Good morning!
I am the hostess over at 4 Crafty Chicks this week 
and I have a really fun challenge.
A Recipe challenge.

Challenge #377 - Recipe
1 Bow
2 colors
3 snowflakes.

I love these kinds of challenges but have to be honest, that I struggled with this one. Hopefully this clean and simple design still does some justice for this challenge. I would like to try it again when my mojo is flowing better and share the results of that one with you too.

The red and purple colors were chosen because while out shopping today, I saw someone with a shirt this color. The snowflakes have Wink of Stella on them, wish you could actually see it as it adds a little pop to the them. Everything you see here is from Stampin' Up.

Wishing you an amazing day! Thanks for sharing in this card and please come and join us for our latest challenge.

Thanks For Your Kindness




Good Morning! How is your week going? My week is full of some ups and downs but crafting has helped with some of the down moments.

Over at 4 Crafty Chicks our one and only Nance is our wonderful hostess this week.

Challenge #376 - Give Thanks

Love this challenge because it always makes me take just a little extra time to think about everything that I am grateful for. Today, I am grateful for little moments of clarity to help solve struggles we are going through. Nothing like a cup of java or tea to help you think and process life. It snowed here and it was sunny, so I tried to create my space where I was sitting. Such an awesome stamp.

Above I wanted to show my dazzling diamonds for the snow, looking out my window.  My walls are green and the sun was shining beautifully out the window. It was so quiet. Copic Markers were used to color the image which is from Your Next Stamp. The sentiment is from Verve and the paper/punches are all from Stampin' Up. Enamel dots are also from Your Next Stamp.

Thank you so much for joining me; hope to see you again.
