Some More Craftiness

Good Morning! It is a great job being a DT at 4 Crafty Chicks because we had so many phenomenal enteries last week.  Thanks to everyone who played.

We are already onto a new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks today. Our wonderful hostess this week is non other than our Lori!! She has a wonderful challenge for us.  Are you ready to see what is?


In the last few weeks, it has been so much fun breaking out the buttons.  I must confess though, I tend to forget to use them. Love how they add the extra look and uniqueness to cards, scrapbook pages and 3D art.

My new DT card is below and yes it is another black and white one.  I decided to go with another sympathy card.  I don't use my cross enough and usually I color it but this time my darling husband convinced me to just leave it black and white.  Sometimes it is hard to mix things up but I broke out my paper piercer, my cross stitching floss and needle to add a little something to the right hand side.  While digging into my stash I thought that my card also needed some twine (white from SU) to go with the buttons.  It is hard to see but the black paper is embossed using the D'vine Swirl folder.
Thank you so much Lori for the amazing challenge this week.  It was fun and again one that I always need.  Girls you sure do help me use my products and I truly enjoy that. It is fun sharing our craftiness together!!

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges, each week they give me so much inspiration.

Make It Monday - #125 - Anything Goes

Challenges 4 Everybody - #12 - Anything Goes

Be sure to hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks to get in on our next challenge, it is a wonderful one. I really do enjoy coming to visit you.  Thank you so much.

Pearls, Pearls, Pearls at 4 Crafty Chicks

Hello, how has your week been going?  My week has been busy but mostly enjoyable so far *wink*.  Yesterday, I had a visit from my fellow chick Lori.  It was the first time in a while that we have had a down day and it wasn't because I was sick...LOL.  Lori crocheted on her fabulous color filled blanket and I cross stitched and crocheted.  It was a day filled with tons of laughs and girlie time.  You can never get too much girlie time :)

Today, is Thursday and you all know what that means.  It means over at 4 Crafty Chicks we have a new challenge up for you.  I am the hostess this week and the challenges is an easy peasy one.  Can you guess what it is from the title?  I bet you can!  Pearls are like a crafting girls dream of diamonds right?

Before this card was started, I had something else in mind but sadly my brothers mother in law passed away yesterday and she was an amazing person.  Our thoughts are with their families as they remember good times and try to deal with losing someone so special.

My card has a Pearl Flourish that was given to me by my fellow chick Leanne.  Leanne is the queen at using flourishes.  The sentiment is from a set created by Verve and the butterflies from Martha Stewart punches.  All paper is from Stampin Up and the extra pearls are from left overs from my stash.  So sorry that the pearl flourish looks blurry, I took so many pictures and they all looked the same.
I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
Make It Monday - #123 Anything Goes
Challenges 4 Everybody - #11 Anything Goes

We really hope that you have time to join us over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  We sure love hopping over to your blogs and sharing in your creations.  Have a fabulous week. Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my post today :)

I leave you with this image from facebook.

Color Combo at 4 Crafty Chicks and Winner of Blog Hop

Good Morning! What an amazing week 4 Crafty Chicks had with so many amazing and very inspiring creations.  Thank you so much to everyone who left a comment on my blog and to all of my new followers.  I truly appreciate all of the comments left and that you are willing to share in my crafting journey.

My winner for my blog hop prize is #14 Deedesigns.  Congratulation :)

We are onto Challenge #124 this week and our hostess with the mostess is Melissa.  She has this amazing color combo below for us.

Here is my creation below.  My mom had brought me the soft sky and blue bayou colors but in the end we realized that I had both of these colors in my other paper stash *wink*.  Sometimes it pays not to get rid of things but sadly I guess you could say I don't use all of my stuff either....LOL.  After I took the picture I realized that I forgot to add white pearls to the center of the flowers (that will still happen).

These colors are awesome but for some reason I struggled with them.  There are two other cards started but not finished.  This card is clean and simple without a sentiment...what do you think should it have one?  Maybe the color combo needs to be worked with some more.  Guess I am feeling that it needs something but just not sure what.  Can you help?
My fellow DT's made this color combo look so easy and truly just amazing inspiration.  Be sure to stop on over at 4 Crafty Chicks to check it out!!  Oh and don't forget to stop by 4 Crafty Chicks to see if you are one of the GDT, TOP 3 or blog hop winners.

Not sure where this week is going but I do hope that the flu will leave our house hold alone as well as others.  With everyone getting sick in rotations it is getting to be a little bit mundane.  Tristans basketball team won their game 54-30, it was an awesome game.

Thanks so much for sharing in my crafting journey!!
