Challenge #19 at 4 Crafty Chicks

Good Thursday morning! It sure has been some wild weather here in central Alberta. The last few days have been above zero, which is not too common at the beginning of January. Then buy Monday we are supposed to be down to -20...what a swing...LOL. You know most people tend to relax when their kids go to school, not me, my kids went to school Monday and I got sick with the flu on Tuesday and now have a head and chest cold. I have not been feeling too good. I could have thought better ways to spend my day...LOL. Enough of my blah, blahing and onto the really good stuff.

Leanne is our super fabulous hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks. I love the way she thinks. For challenge #19 the theme is "Travel". Now what a fun challenge this was for me. It wasn't one that I guess I would have considered doing...but let me tell you I loved it! Oh and to let you know we will be posting out winners sometime Wednesday night from now on and then our challenges on Thursday. Hopefully you will enjoy not scrolling so far down to enter your creations.

Stacey's Stamping Curtain Call Challenge was just the colors I was looking for to go with Leanne's theme.

On wards to the sketch from Melissa at Tuesday Morning Sketches, it was a fabby and worked really well with our Travel theme and the colors.

Here is my card! He is so cuuuute. I was given this stinkin cute stamp bye my friend Leanne. It has made me smile and boy oh boy it was fun getting him inky. Gus (Totally Stampalicious) kind of reminds me of my dad...LOL. Pile It On Challenge #1 Brand Spankin New (my new items were both of my stamps (image & word), my pearls and a new pair of scissors. Card Makin Mamas Challenge #11 is Anything Goes (a new challenge blog for me and it look like a lot of fun). I just love this time of year when I get to use new things that really, really like.

Recipe: Stamps: Totally Stamalicious and Cloud9 Design simple thoughts - Travel; Paper: Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, whisper white, Cajun Craze and always Artichoke; Ink: Versa Fine black and always artichocke; Accesories: small and large circle spellbinders, pearls, copic markers and SU markers, herringbone and swiss dots embossing folder, clear embossing powder and dimensionals.

Everyones cards last week were soooooo creative! Thank you so much for sharing them with us. Congratulations to each of the winners.

We would love to have you come over and play our travel theme with us. Lori, Melissa and Leanne have rocked it out of the park again with some awesome inspiration.

What are you up to today? I am up really early to babysit before and after school today. During the day catch will be what I am playing. In between catch up, it will be wonderful to just stay in my house for most of the day...except maybe driving the kids to school.

Have an amazing day and do come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks this week, we love seeing what you have to share with us.
