Think Warm for the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge

Good Thursday morning! Our furnace has been running like crazy. The old man winter finally showed up not with a ton of snow but wicked temperatures. Wind chills of -45 all day yesterday. I hunkered down and stayed inside with my kids all day. With some hot chocolate, candles and a little bit of music some crafting was in order.

So this week I am your hostess over at 4 Crafty Chicks. With the last few days being so darn cold I am sure many of you are thinking of warmer places to go or summer time. So with that in mind I put out the challenge to you and my fellow DT's too


As I am typing this I have to laugh because I don't mind saying that I struggled a little bit with my own challenge. It sure was hard to get my mind thinking about summer. In December Leanne, Lori and I spent a wonderful day together. We did some shopping and hit a beautiful crafting store that was going out of business :( . When we were there I bought some pattern paper from Echo and it is called a walk in the park. The colors and words went perfectly for this challenge. Oh how I just love these colors. Then out came my Greeting Farms stamps. A little coloring with some Copic's and Stampin Up marker, some pearls, ribbon and wola a card was born.

while creating my card I popped over to The Pink Elephant and saw that there challenge this week is to use our favorite color or colors (TPE131) and oh do I love all of these colors. Papertake Weekly Challenge would like you to use Buttons, Bows, Bling & Blooms (you can use one or all of them). So I used the bling (pearls), the stamp has some blooms and maybe my ribbon might count..LOL. Make It Monday is on there 72nd challenge (anything goes) and it is a wonderful place to share you creations.

We would love to have you join us at 4 Crafty Chicks this week. It is always a blast to see what kind of creations people are inspired to make from our challenges. We appreciate you all sharing your creativeness with us. Be sure to stop bye Leanne, Lori and Melissa blogs and share some love. Their work is awesome.

Thanks for stopping bye and sharing my card with me :)
