Santa Molly

Good morning! We have had more sun this month already than we did for the whole month of October. Seeing the sun more sure has brightened my days and having the extra hour to sleep has brought my world back in line. It has been wonderful enjoying time at home.

We have a brand new challenge that is starting today over at Creative Knockouts. We are on Challenge #169 Tis The Season. It is funny how fast the time is flying by. I am not sure exactly when I am going to go Christmas shopping but holy smokes it is coming quickly.  Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights and they have graciously let me use  Santa Molly highlight this week.  My daughter and I colored this image together and she said yes and no to my layout.  

My image is colored with Copic's and the paper and top note frame was made from Stampin Up.  I also used spellbinders for where my sentiment is. It is a clean and simple design, hope you like it.

We would love to see you, please show us your inspiration over at Creative Knockouts.  My fellow DT's have wonderful creations for you.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Winter Wonderland

Hi, my crafting peeps! Our challenge hostess Lori over at 4 Crafty Chicks is thinking Winter Wonderland for Challenge #326.

I found this cute image in my pre- stamped pile and it was so much fun to color up.  I can totally think of cute penguins, bears (mostly polar bears) and snowmen out in the cold. My embossing folder of snowflakes just reminds me of shaking a snow globe and watching the snow fall. It is another clean and simple layout hopefully you like it and think it represents a winter wonderland.

I look forward to seeing your blogs, so please join us for our Winter Wonderland challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. Looking for more inspiration be sure to hop on over to our challenge blog to get some.

Have an amazing day!

Never Regret Anything That...

Hello everyone, welcome to our newest challenge for 4 Crafty Chicks. Today, I am your hostess for this weeks challenge. For Challenge #325 I would like you to break out the FABRIC!

The reason why I picked this challenge was because my mom gave me some homemade jam for Christmas a few years ago and well I looked at the cloth and thought I could use this for crafting. Who knew I would struggle so much with how to use the fabric on a card...*wink*. After cutting most of the fabric up, flowers popped into my head. So here is the creation I made with the flowers idea.

Please come and join us for this fun-filled Fabric Challenge. My fellow Chicks Leanne, Nance, Lori and our GDT have some amazing inspiration for you.

Just for You!

Hi everyone, welcome to my 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge Card. Before, our challenge is revealed; I would like to welcome our newest member of our Hen House. Please join me in welcoming the very talented Nance Salkeld from Soul Stampin'. We are lucky to have her creative inspirations with us weekly and believe me, you will be inspired by her masterpieces. Make sure you hop on over and share some love with Nance.

Our challenge this week is brought to us by Leanne. Today's challenge is Vintage for #324.

My card is made using all Stampin Up products except for the pearls. I decided to go with the story on the pattern paper and distressed the edges as I felt that it would really give it that vintage look. The idea for this card was from a card I saw on Pinterest. It was designed from Thinking Inking Debbie Olson Designs.  To make it my own, I changed some things up, added some layers, pearls, and some texture.  Her design also used musical paper instead of paper from a book.

We would love to have you come and join us this week for our Vintage Challenge. 

Have a wonderful day!

Your are my sunshine!

Hello! I am excited to be back today to show you my card for 4 Crafty Chicks.  It is the first Thursday of the month, so that means your hostess is Leanne.  We are on Challenge #323 and Leanne would like us to break out the SWIRLY PEARLS. 

It is with a very sad heart, that this week is our Chick Tina's last hen house post. Tina has been a huge blessing, friend and a crafty inspiration to me(us)/our blog. We know that life has a way of busy and is taking her in a different direction but she will always be one of the chicks. Sending you love and hugs my friend, thank you for the wonderful blessing you have brought into my life. You are the DA BOMB!!!

I would like to welcome Nicola from Amethyst Lily Designs to our hen house as our Guest Designer for the month of November.

This was an awesome challenge as all of us chicks like to use pearls.  I didn't have big swirls in my stash but I did have this one to use on this cute card.  I picked bright colors and this cute little turtle to color up. My image was colored up using Copic Markers and I used chocolate chip ink for sponging around the edge of the sentiment.

We would love it if you join us for 4 Crafty Chicks. Looking for more inspiration our GDT and chicks from the hen house have lots for you.

Have an amazing day and thanks for stopping by.
