Ornaments at 4 Crafty Chicks

Good morning everyone! As I am typing this my Christmas tunes are playing.  Walking in a Winter Wonderland is the perfect tune for this morning.  A cup of hot chocolate will be in order later on today as it is just a tad chilly. What is your favorite Winter drink?

Today we have a new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and I am the lucky one to host it.  I love this time of year with the up beat Christmas songs and when you walk into the stores not only do you see chocolate but you see tons and tons of ornaments.

Challenge # 118 - ORNAMENTS
(paper, stamps, glass etc)

Here is my simple Christmas tree ornament.  I used several thin pieces of paper that I folded to put inside.  Then I added white Rub-Ons from Stampin Up on the outside.  It sure doesn't take long and is a little something for one of Kaitlyn's teachers.

Make It Monday #117- Anything Goes and Challenges 4 Everybody #8-Anything Goes are a few challenges that I would love to enter my ornament into.

Leanne, Lori and Melissa sure have a some inspiration to share with you, so please make sure you pop by 4 Crafty Chicks to share some love. Be sure to share your creations with us. I just love coming to visit your blogs.

Today is report card day for Robin and Kaitlyn it will be interesting to see how they are doing at their new school.  Hopefully we can get everyone in school for the last day this week :)  Be safe and stay warm.

Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing my ornament creation with me.

Tropical Destination over at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Good morning all! Well it is snowing here and I can't seem to get warm.  It isn't even as cold as it usually is here in Alberta.  Lori is our wonderful hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks! She really has a heart warming idea to help us out and dream about something warm with our chilly temperatures.


My creation this week is one of my favorite Riley's and truly one of my first ones I got a chance to buy.  The Palm trees remind me of a couple of trips one to Mexico and one to Florida...don't mind saying a trip back to either one would be wonderful.  I went with Cherry Cobbler because really that would be the color of my skin (LOL) and the Daffodil delight is for me the warm and beautiful sun.  My sentiment would be one normally used for Christmas but I was thinking why couldn't I use it for a holiday card, letting someone know to enjoy there holiday.  Let me know if you don't think it works.  Other than that it is a pretty clean and simple card.  Thank you so much Lori for a wonderful challenge...way warmer than my Winter one last week. Hopefully it is a creation you would like too.

I would love to enter this little guy at Make It Monday - Anything Goes!

Come and join us for some Tropical fun at 4 Crafty Chicks! We love seeing your creations.  Be sure to check out our what my fellow DT's have this week.

My quote for this week is one that my friend Lori posted on her facebook and was one I needed to see.  Hope you enjoy it.

Winter meets 4 Crafty Chicks

Walking in a Winter this song! It is fitting for how our outdoors look.  The trees are gorgeous.  There are ups and downs to winter but for the most part there are things I love about it too.  One of my favorites is being in a cozy pair of jammies with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book or crafting makes for a great day when the temperatures are in the deep freeze.

This week it is my turn to be hostess at 4 Crafty Chicks. We are on Challenge #116 - WINTER is the theme.  So please pop on over to show us what you got.

My creation this week is clean and simple and it is one of those Christmas cards that would be easy to mail.  All products on here is from Stampin Up!

 Sorry you can't really see the sentiment but it is there...LOL.  Should have went with a darker color.
I would love to enter this into the following challenge at Make It Monday-Anything Goes!

Please hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks...I would love to see what this challenge inspires in you!

Thank you so much for sharing in my post today!! Have an amazing day!

Getting Sketchy over at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Good morning from a very blustery and snowy central Alberta! Yesterday was quite a day going to the city to renew our passports.  It was snowing, blowing and crazy slow going but it was a great day spent with my mom and dad.  Who know exactly what the weather holds today but regardless, I have to go out.

I am super glad to announce that it is Thursday and over at 4 Crafty Chicks we have another fun filled challenge for you. As for last weeks entrants, I will apologize for not leaving any comments, it sure wasn't for the lack of trying, for some reason hardly any of them were accepted. The creations were unique and amazing.  Melissa is our hostess-with-the-mostess and she has come up with a fabby sketch for us all to get crafty with. 

 Here is my card.  While making this card, I got the chance to cyber craft with my pal Lori.  This is so much fun but often wish you could add more people and have a cyber craftying party *wink*.  If you can't see one another at least we have cyber space right?  This sketch screamed texture for me and I hopefully gave you some texture to enjoy. It was a good opportunity to make another Christmas card for my hubbies work.
I would love to enter my card over at these fabulous challenges:
Make It Monday  #114-Anything Goes.
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations Challenge #195- No flowers (boy did I get giddy when I saw this flower just a snowflake :)
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog #101 - Lots of layers (this sketch screamed for layers :)
thanks for the awesome challenges ladies :)

My fellow DT's and our Guest Designer Erin have truly amazing creations to share with you this week.  Please be sure to stop by 4 Crafty Chicks to see their master pieces. While you are their please don't forget to join us.  We truly love seeing what you create and share with us each week.

A Day To Remember at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Good Morning! Well it is official, it is the first day of November.  We had so much fun seeing all of the great costumes last night and the little ones are so precious.

Can you think of a better way to celebrate the 1st of November than with a new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks?  Leanne is our wonderful hostess this week and she is supplying us with the idea for our challenge.  With the start of November we have another amazing Guest Designer  joining 4 Crafty Chicks and her name is Erin Gonzales.  She has some tons of inspiration to share with us.


The card I made for this challenge is clean and simple.  My friend Helen asked me to make a card for her but it needed to be a birthday card and it couldn't be too thick or layered as she had to mail it to Wales. She was thinking of a dear friend who was turning 50 and she just really wanted her know that she remembered her special day.  A spellbinder was used with a dauber to create a shadowed frame behind the flowers.  Ink, stamp and paper are from Stampin Up.

I would love to enter my clean and simple card into Make It Monday #113 - Anything Goes.

One thing I forgot to mention is that we had some totally spooky and just awesome creations over at 4 Crafty Chicks this last week.  You all made it so hard to chose because the coloring, layouts, inspiration were so fabulous.  Please pop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks we would love to see what you have for us this week and I would love to come and visit your blog.

Not sure where I saved this picture from but I thought was good.

Have an amazing week and thank you for stopping by to share in my creation this week.
