You're Invited at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Good Evening! Sorry, my post for 4 Crafty Chicks in a few days late.  My whole family so far with the exception of my wonderful husband have been dealing with the flu/cold virus for the last few weeks.   I have been without a voice for quiet a few days, my vocal cords, throat and chest hurt so badly. Not to mention the high fever, headaches, aches in my back, coughing and being sick to my stomach.  My kids might have enjoyed me not being able to talk...but now my voice is back...well not completely but enough to annoy them...LOL.  We are all still dragging from it. We taught our kids to share just a little too well *wink*. So as I am typing this, may the healthy force be with you. This isn't anything I would wish upon anyone.

The plus side is that I felt good enough last night and today to work for short periods of time, on getting my craftroom cleaned up. We had a new furnace put in, but the mess from drilling and all of the saw dust in my craft stuff was enough to make a person want to scream.  It took me more than a couple of hours to clean it up, but now my craft area is awful pretty :). Even did a little bit of reorganizing...thanks Lori :)

Over at 4 Crafty Chicks, on Thursday we had a new challenge brought to us by none other than Miss. Melissa!  For Challenge #120 she asked to make an Invitation.


Tonight, clean and simple came to mind while making this card.  I got to break out something new and a few old things. When this challenge came up, there was some worry for me because I didn't think I had any kind of sentiment to go with this challenge.  While cleaning, I came across this older Stampin Up set called Lots of Thoughts! saved the day and worked like a charm. It is good to have a true challenge because you never know what hidden treasures you have in your craft room until you start looking :) Thanks Melissa.

Stamps: Lots of Thoughts (Stampin Up)
Ink: Bravo Burgandy
Paper: Cranberry Crisp, Basic Grey and Whisper White
Accessories: button, twine, (stampin up products)- large tag punch, basic grey satin ribbon and Chevron embossing folder, stampin dimensionals.

Can you believe that there is only one week left until Christmas? Yikes...I am not even close to being done.  Here is too some power shopping this next week :)

Please come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks for this wonderful challenge! I would love to hop over to your blog and get to see your inspiration. 

Thanks for stopping by to share my card with me.  Please stay safe and healthy this week!


  1. I'm so sorry that you ALL were so miserable. (We moms definitely need our voices!) I love this simple invite - the embossing folder is perfect for a fun party!

  2. Very nicely done friend, hope you are feeling better soon, and hugs!
