No Stamping Zone at 4 Crafty Chicks

Hey all! How has the last week been for you?  Well I have been to a conference with my husbands work and then spent the rest of the weekend at Tristan's volleyball tournament.  We had a good time at my brother and sister in-laws. It was all so much fun but really tiring.  Now of course it is time to play catch up...LOL.

Thank you so much to everyone who played in my Boys Dig It challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. All of the creations were marvelous.  This week at 4 Crafty Chicks is our prize week and a new challenge of course.  Our beautiful hostess-with-the-mostess is LORI (Inkingly Yours). 

Challenge #87 
No Stamping Zone
use chipboard, rub-on's, paper, ribbon...but no stamps.

When Lori shared with us girls what our challenge was going to be I was sooo excited.  My brain started working a mile a minute and the result was that my lonely rub-on's were going to be broken out of the wrappers.  The funny part was when using them, one of them said November 2009 man have they been sadly neglected.   So thanks Lori for reminding me that we don't always have to use stamps.

Now I keep seeing all of these gorgeous cards that are clean, crisp and simple.  They are one layer only the card base and they look fantastic.  No stamps and one layer, well you could say I was sweating bricks...LOL.  I think there might be too much white...yes Lori I said it...LOL.  Any way the Rub ons are from Stamping Up.  As you can tell by the one date they are probably retired *giggle*. The words are from Chit Chat and the flowers are ??. and the paper is Whisper White. 

Thank you so much to Kasey and Heather for your beautiful and wow popping creations this month.  We have truly been lucky to have you share our challenges with us.  Be sure to stop bye and see all of the girls their work is just amazing.

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:

Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Thank you all so much for stopping by, you are always welcome and the support is awesome.  Share a smile with someone today, you never know when they might just need one.

Boys Dig It at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Hi everyone! This week it is my turn to be the hostess with the mostess at 4 Crafty Chicks. I don't always have masculine or boy cards around and well to tell you the truth sometimes, they are just plain hard for me to make. So I thought for Challenge #86 we should do a Boys Dig It challenge.

Challenge # 86- Boys Dig It!!

The card I am showing you is one I made for my son Robin. He loves his music and saved for an Ipod Touch a few years ago. Now it is always with him and he is always singing something. This Kenny K stamp is called Teen Idol. It fits him to a tee. It is hard to see that I used the embossing folder with the lines from Stampin Up on the blue back ground paper and I also used for my sentiment a stampin up stamp. The markers were copic and stampin up Cajun Craze. Robin is a clean and simple teenage and that is what I did for his card. The DC charm is actually something I found on the floor, it is from Robin's hoodie...recycle right.

Hope you like the card! My fellow DT's as always have rocked this challenge out of the ball park, gaming park...which ever park you like...they did an amazing job. Be sure to check them out at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Come on out and show us what inspires you with the title of Boys Dig It. It is going to be a blast coming to visit you.

Using Fabric at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Good morning! The last few days have been very windy here but oh the sunshine sure makes up for it. How was your Easter? Ours was very good, we enjoyed our time together. My kids are nearing the end of our Easter holidays, so that is a little sad for me. On the weekend we will be celebrating my daughters birthday. Can't believe she will be 10 already...LOL. It has been a week of picking up another love of my crochet. I am working on finished up a project that has been on the go for a couple of years. Can't wait to show you the finished project. Thank you Lori for encouraging me to pick it back up.

Thanks to everyone who played Leanne's flower challenge. The inspiration was totally incredible. We loved all of them. At 4 Crafty Chicks this week we are onto challenge #85 and let me just say, once again our DT have totally out done themselves. Our beautiful hostess with the mostess this week is Melissa.

CHALLENGE #85 - FABRIC (ribbon does not count).

She got me digging into my stash and using something that was bought a few years ago and sadly was just stored until now. Using fabric is something that I totally forget to use. It sure does have an amazing effect. The flowers are made out of felt! It was so much fun to use. This card would have worked so well with last weeks challenge too...LOL. Thanks Melissa for getting me to go outside of the box and digging into my treasure trove.

Everything used on this card is from Stampin Up!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenge (thanks for the opportunity to play):

Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations # 165 - Flower Power

So come on out and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks, we love see your creations and stopping bye your blog to say hi. Have an amazing second week of April.

Thanks for sharing my card with me!

I Mustache You A Question.

Hello, today I am happy to share one of the newer stamp sets from last month with you by SP and Company Stamps. I took my cards into the store the other day and they just loved the mustache. So I broke it out again and thought another masculine card was in order. This fun stamp set is called Mustache Madness. It has some super cute sayings and who wouldn't like this cute stache.
