Fishing Boats on The Beach

Good Afternoon! today is very cloudy here but no rain yet. First off sorry for my late post. Last night we were lucky enough to go and see the RCMP musical ride. It ended up to be a beautiful night and fun show. Unfortunately the last few days I have been suffering from severe headaches. This is why my post is late and why I should have it done up ahead of time.

I am the hostess this week over at 4 Crafty Chicks and my challenge for you is to make an Masculine card/project.

My card below is for my husband who just loves the water and his birthday next week. I tried to create something different with the layers of the card, I guess kind of like a camera. Not sure if it worked out but I hope he likes it.  The image is from Handmade Habour. The image was colored with Copics. and the embossing folder Argyle from Stampin Up.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafty Girls Challenges - Challenge #25 - Anything Goes
Mod Squad Challenges - Coastal Inspiration
Inky Impressions Challenges - Challenge #173 - Anything Goes

Thank you so much stopping by and remember we would love to have you join us this week at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Balloon Day!

Today is Thursday and that means 4 Crafty Chicks Day! I am sure enjoying this hot weather but it makes sleep at night a little harder. It is summer though so I won't complain.

I want to welcome Amy back as our Guest Designer for the month and feel like a smuck because I forgot it in my previous post.  Be sure to check out her blog Lil Cutie Creations.

Tina is our wonderful hostess with the mostess this week. She wanted us to use this color combo for Challenge #207 PINK, TURQUOISE and LIME.

For some reason I thought this color combo was going to be extremely hard but it was truly easy!! So on this day I colored the image it was crafting time with Chickie Lori. We was a blast visiting with each other.  Well the piercing tool got a good workout and I believe all the poking turnout.  I colored her with copics. It was fun configuring this layout and yes you are hearing this from me first...the flowers were fun and the little Sprigs :)  Hope you like it.
Recipe:
Stamp: Saturated Canary Stamp
Paper: Whipser White, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Pattern Paper(??)
Ink: Memento
Accessories: flowers, brads, Small Garden Sprig Memory Box, piercing tool, circle hand punch and Chalk Marker.
Copics:
YG23, BG45, R20, RV04, Y26, E11, E13, E33, E35, E57

So come on out and show us your bright and bold colors. My fellow Design Team members have out done themselves again.

Have a great day and find some time to do a little crafting.

Sometimes On The Way To A Dream....

Hello! Sorry for the late post.  We had a very nasty, nasty storm that came thru last night and messed with our internet service.  I couldn't upload my pictures to where I needed them. Write my posts or get them to post at the right time.  Silly really but it did make me very, very, very frustrated. Must say, the computer almost went out the window. It was my fault really should not have been so late getting my stuff on.  Oh well, the good news it is on here now, we have beautiful blue skies and the internet is working, very slow but working.

We have a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and our fabulous hostess is our one and only Leanne :) .  She would like us to use Pins for Challenge #206.

My card is below and the pin on this card was made for me sometime ago by Leanne. Her hubby Brian also made me a bow maker! I love it. I have always found bows hard to make and well I know there is some practicing to be done but I made one. Thanks for the both items Leanne and Brian.  The stamp on this image was given to me by my friend Leona. She went to BC and thought that this stamp fit me to a tee. It is beautiful and I adore the sentiment. I also needed to add some texture...who doesn't love texture? right?
We would love it if you popped on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and showed us your pins this week.  I look forward to coming and seeing what you create.

Have an amazing week and thanks for poppin in.

Fairy of Flowers

Good Morning! I hope you are having a great day so far! I think my eyes are still seeing dots after the lightening storm that blew in last night! It has been a busy week but the high light last week was visiting with my grandma, she is 92 and one amazing lady.

Today at Creative Knockouts for Challenge #49 we would like you to use Doily Fun. Our sponsor for this week is A Day For Daisies. They have graciously let me use Fairy For Flowers.  I tried something new and that was keeping everything black and white except for a portion of it.  Otherwise it is clean and simple design with the touch of a ribbon and a doily lace that my mom gave me.  A shout out to my friends husband Brian as he made me something to make bows.  Still working hard at trying to make them look pretty but This is way better than before.  THANK YOU Brian and Leanne :).  The coloring was done with Copic.

We would love to see you over at Creative Knockouts to see what our Doily Fun Challenge Inspires in you. 

Have an amazing week and thanks for sharing my creation with me :)

Camping Is Intents!!

Good, Good Morning! This week has been smokin' hot so we have enjoyed going to the swimming pool. My craft room is crazy hot with no curtains or blinds up.  Hoping we find some soon, on the bright side I guess we have our own personal sauna.  The smoke from all the forest fires has made breathing harder and my allergies are sure flaring up. My thoughts are with everyone who lives around the fires.

It is my turn to be the hostess at 4 Crafty Chicks.  I think we have a super fun challenge this week. For CHALLENGE #203 I would love to see something about the Great Outdoors.

Loving this image from Lacy Sunshine, thought it was perfect for anyone who loves camping and play in the Great Outdoors.  I used Copics to color the image, spellbinders and 5 different Stampin Up punches.  I had fun playing with the twine too. What would you do if you work up and found this when you were tenting?


I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown - #204 - Take Us On Vacation (Camping)
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog - Challenge #186 - Anything Goes
The ABC Challenge - P is for Pearls

We are very excited to see what creations you come up with this week.  Please hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks to be inspired by with more fabby creations and to enter yours.

Have an amazing week! A huge smile is coming your way.

That's A Smore Eh!

Whaooo! We are into our second week of holidays and so far we have survived my oldest sons wisdom teeth removal, physiotherapy, doctors appointments and of course the beautiful hot weather.  I am still dreaming of having everyone sleep in for at least one day during this summer :).

I am giddy with excitement to show you my new DT card for Creative Knockouts.  Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Lacy Sunshine and she has graciously let me create with the Eleanor and Pickles Smores digi image.  We are on Challenge # 45 and we are asking you to SEW IT UP - REAL OR FAUX

I picked this image because this is one thing I just love doing with my kids each summer.  Sadly we won't be able to go camping this year because of my accident but I did try to get the camping feeling on this card.  We love to tent...so I decided that this card required some real stitching.  First thing was to find my Framelits and was very excited to use my Festive Paper Piercing mats.  It is my first time using them and thought it would be the perfect thing to help me hand sew on this card. Then out came the embroidery floss and my cross stitch needle. Both layers were sewed by hand and two different styles.

Lacy Sunshine
Recipe:
Stamp: Lacy Sunshine - Eleanor and Pickle Smores
Paper: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Acorn Hollow 6x6 pad.
Accessories: Stampin Up framelit and festive paper piecing mat, Fancy Tags 1, copic markers, chocolate and yellow pearls, floss and needle.

I would love to enter my card into the following Challenges:
Stampin' Royalty - Challenge #236 - Anything Goes
Crafting By Designs - Use Dies Challenge
Twisted Tuesday - Challenge #80 - Challenge - Include Pearls on your Creation Twist Lots of Layers
Fan-Tastic Tuesdays - Challenge #43 - Anything Goes

It would be great to see you at Creative Knockouts this week. For more incredible inspiration please hop on over and see my fellow DT's creations. I would love to see how you sewed on your project be it real or faux.

Have a spectacular day! May it be one filled with tons of laughter. 

Thanks for sharing it with me!! Hugs

Inspired By A Song

Good Morning! We have had a very hot week so far and last night ended up with two storms passing threw.  Lots of thunder and lightening but it has cooled things down a bit. One of my highlights this last week was going to the brand new swimming pool in Wetaskiwin with my husband and daughter.  I must say it was extremely weird not being able to just swim but they were awesome with me and helped me out lots. It has been just about 9 months since I have been in the pool and boy have I sure missed the water. Now onto why you are here...

We are on CHALLENGE #202 at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Our wonderful hostess this week is our fabulous chick Tina.  She would like us to create something "INSPIRED BY A SONG".  There are so many good songs out there and if anything my trouble was narrowing them down to just one.
SONG INSPIRED BY NICK LOWE
"I Knew The Bride When She Used To Rock And Roll" 
I love this song! My girlfriends had this played at my wedding and we all danced to it. It was so awesome, a wonderful memory and an very fun party.  The digi is from Kenny K called the Wedding Dance. These digi's are so much fun to color up.  This particular card was made when my fellow Chick Leanne came for a visit, where we got some crafting time on. Don't faint but yes you are seeing flowers for the second time is as many weeks *wink*.  The image has been colored with copic markers. You can't tell by the picture but the dress is shiny from a clear glitter pen.
I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafting With Dragonflies - Challenge #30 - Clean and Simple (CAS)
Crafty Creations Challenges - Challenge #267 - Let's Party
Creative Moments - Challenge #46 - Anything Goes/Celebration (Wedding Dance)

We would love to have you pop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks...I personally can't wait to see what song inspires you.  Our guest designer and my fellow chicks have rockin inspiration for you too.

Wishing you a fabulous week! Thanks for sharing my new DT card with me.
