Help Comes From The Lord.

Welcome back to my blog. Today's inspiration is made for 4 Crafty Chicks.  Our wonderful multi talented hostess is Tina.  For Challenge #284 Tina would like us to break out our BLING.

My design is made with all Stampin Up paper, memento ink, verve stamp, My Favorite Things die and Stampin Up Die.  I found this flourish pearls and it gorgeous and thought it would look very nice on here.  Sadly I realized that the sticky stuff on these pearls gets old and they don't stick.  There was much time picking pearls off or trying to glue them back in place.  Moral of my story.  Use them before they get too old and don't stick any more. 

Please come on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and show us your BLING.

Thanks for sharing my latest work with me.

Welcome Friends

Hello, as I am typing this we have clouds on one side of our house and blue skies on the other. I totally prefer the blue sky as it has been very cloudy here this past week.  A few days ago we had a rain storm just like it was spring, it was really weird since it is the middle of Winter.

Over at 4 Crafty Chicks we are on Challenge #283 and our beautiful and multi talented hostess this week is Lori.  She would like us to make NO CARDS.  Well did I ever have to put my thinking cap on for this one.  So I thought and I thought just like Winnie the Pooh. There were these plaques that are very old that were being sorely neglected and Rub Ons too that have not seen the light of day for quite some time.  So a light bulb moment happened and a crafty project was born.

The project up above is for a friend.  They are renovating a very old house and I am hoping the colors match. She loves homemade stuff and thought it would be something brand new to put up in her home when they finally get moved in.

We would love to see you master pieces that you make over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  For more wonderful inspiration please hop on over to see what my fellow Chicks have for you.

Thanks for sharing my latest creation with me.

For Challenge #125 Embossed Delights.  I adore embossing because of the different textures you can add and heat embossing can pack a punch too.  My image is colored with Copics and the circles are spellbinders.  The ink and paper are both from Stampin UP. As you can see for the above picture, I used Wink of Stella on the Daisy. I just love this stuff for a touch of sparkle.

Cupcakes are good at anytime but I love them with as a birthday gift too.

Book Lover

Creative Knockouts has a brand new challenge for you today.  I am so excited as always to share my latest DT creation for them with you.  We are on Challenge #123 ALL that GLITTERS.  I would like to thank the sponsor this week (SLS Lines Digital Stamps) for letting me color up Book Lover.

It is hard to see all of the glitter that I have going on here but there is alot.  I have dazzling diamonds going around the first oval.  Then a darker silver around the outside.  I also used Wink of Stella on her eye lids, the book pages and on the binding of the book. I love glitter and I tried something new this time.  Doing just the edges.  It was tedious but a lot of fun.  I haven't used actual glitter in a long time. Some paper piercing and texture highlight this image colored with copic markers.

Prize: 3 digis
Hop on over to Creative Knockouts and see some more wicked inspiration by my fellow DT's. We look forward to seeing you.

Have an amazing day!!

Beach Cat...4 Crafty Chicks & GDT call

Hello, Hello, Hello! Welcome back to my blog this week. My latest creation is for 4 Crafty Chicks. Our hostess this week is our one and only Leanne. For challenge #280 - Tropical is what she would like to see.  We also are holding a Guest Designer Call for the months of February, March and April. If you are interested please add GDT behind your name when entering our challenge.

The temperatures have been dropping here in my new home Wainwright, Alberta and we have gotten a wee bit of snow.  Really can't complain about the weather but it does make one dream of a warm vacation.  My card above is well not as tropical as my teammies but when making it I thought of our trip to Mexico and the beautiful flowers and thought it was paradise.  The cat image is from Inky Impressions and well I just love cats and this is what I would look like on the beach, hence the name Beach Cat. I fussy cut the cat out and popped it up over the glittered flower.

Looking for more inspirations be sure to hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks our DT will knock your tropical socks off. Don't forget we are having a Guest Designer Call.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sakura Maiden

Good, Good Day!! It is a sunny and beautiful day! Today, I am showing you my first card made in my brand new craft room.  We moved to Wainwright, Alberta during December and it has been crazy.  It has been a blessing this Holiday season as we have had our family around us.  We will being missing family and friends but will always look forward to seeing them and spending quality time together.

We have two brand new sponsors for you this month. We are on Challenge #25 and as always it is easy peasy...ANYTHING GOES. The image I colored with my Copics is called Sakura Maiden and is created by MoonFlower Digital Stamps.  The image is super beautiful and was fun to color.  Thank you so much for letting me use this image to create with.

Let me tell you my brain was a little sluggish while creating but it felt awesome to make a card and color. You can't see it but I used Wink of Stella on the red and white flowers to add pop and it does look gorgeous just wish you can see it.

Prize ~ 3 Images

I would like to wish ever on a Happy Christmas Eve and a Merry Christmas tomorrow. May this Christmas season bring many blessing big or small to your family and friends.

We have  a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and Lori is our hostess this week.  Even though it is a super busy time, if you get some new crafty goodness, I hope you can still share your creativeness with us this week. For challenge #278 Lori would like us to create something to do with a Wedding.  When I was little I dreamed of a winter wedding, a sleigh ride, trees with white lights and a Christmas wedding.  This card popped into my mind.  Hope you like it.

Wishing a season of new memories to cherish.

Hi! Thanks for joining me while I share my latest DT creation for 4 Crafty Chicks.  We are so close to Christmas, spending time with family. As I think about when I kids were younger I can remember the snowball fights, snow angels and it was always a blast making snowmen.  It is my turn to host the challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and I would like to challenge everyone for Challenge #277 to break out their snowman/snowmen creations. A clean and simple creation but I love this image and stamping up creation.

My fellow DT's and GDT have amazing inspiration for you.

The image in the card above is made by All Dressed Up and they are our sponsor for this week. I colored It's Snowing with Copics and of course just couldn't wait to break out the snowflake embossing folder once again. Boy, I am getting ahead of myself.  My lastest DT creation is for Creative Knockouts and for Challenge #119 Winter Wonderland. My fellow teammates have amazing creations with you.
