Health and Fitness at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Good Morning all! Thank you so much to everyone who joined into our Leaves challenge last week.  Everyone's talents are so amazing.  The inspiration each week just fills my heart with so much joy.

The weeks are just flying but today is Thursday and you know what that means a brand new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Our beautiful and very talented hostess with the mostess is Lori.  She has an amazing challenge for us.  I never really thought about doing a card like this but what a blast.  Just another reason why I love creating with my DT pals.  Thanks Lori for getting me to step out of the box.


We sure have lucked out with beautiful fall weather this last week.  It has been great to be outside. The kids in my communities and others are all out riding those bikes.  My orginal idea for my card was another fruit card with a heart on it but then I remembered that my mom had a set of Stampin Up stamps that had a bike, super perfect for this challenge.  So well my mom is gone to visit my auntie, I got to borrow a few stamps and punches (hee hee hee).

Can you believe it is already the last week of  September? Since it is the last week it is our PRIZE week.  Our lovely Leanne has supplied us with a prize for this week.  Be sure to come and play, you could win this :)

Last weekend was crazy busy with working a Casino for two days it was tons of fun with all of the wonderful people but boy was a just a tad tired.  Oh, hopefully I don't jinx this weekend but so far we don't have too much going on other than our oldest son going to play in his first high school volleyball tournament and it is 4 hours away from home.  It would be so much fun to take one full day and just create cards and it would be fabulous to get ahead on my DT work :)  I would love to enter this card into Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Please come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks for an amazing challenge! We love to see what you create.

Who doesn't love Leaves!

Good morning all! We have another new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and well I am the lucky hostess with the mostess.  The last few days we have had amazing weather although very cool at night and super windy during the day. The tree's are changing and every day we have a few more beautiful leaves on the ground.  It is thinking of these right colors and oh really the scenery is stunning.  It makes me want to sit outside, with a blanket and a good old cup of hot chocolate. 

My card was created using a Verve stamp set because I just love the leaves.  The sentiment is awesome too.  The colors are old olive, daffodil delight, cajun craze, early espresso and cherry cobbler.  It is clean and simple but I truly hope you enjoy the design.
 I would love to enter my card into Make it Monday - anything goes

Life has gotten so busy with volleyball, Tae Kwon-Do, and soon swimming will start.  A few doctors appointments and looking to add some more dentist appointments.  Truly, I need to learn how to balance my life and do some cleaning out of toxic people. It really is playing havoc in my life and my creativity. Clean and simple seems to be the way to go for me lately but hopefully one day soon I can come up with something truly inspired or just a little more fancy...hee hee.

Please come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks for another fun filled challenge.  We would love to see them and I love, love, love coming to visit.

Thank you so much popping in and sharing in my creation.  Huggers!
