Merry Christmas!!

Helloooooo! The mornings here are getting a little more chilly and so are the nights. Time to cuddle up under a blanket with a nice cup of hot chocolate. I am still in shock of where October has gone....can we all just say slow down some already. *wink*.

Today at 4 Crafty Chicks our hostess with the mostess is Lori. This month we have 5 Thursdays so that makes it our Crazy Egg and an Anything Goes Challenge for #218.  My fellow DT's and our wonderful guest designer have some amazing inspiration for you.  Thank you to Tenia for being our GDT, your creations were amazing each week.

I am so behind on making Christmas cards so I finally buckled down and made another one.  The image is Ava & Deacon Merry Christmas Sign by Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  I colored the image with Copics, used Microbeads for the snow, and dazzling diamonds. I had to break out some sequence and of course used Trim the Tree pattern paper.  It is hard to see here but I have Merry Christmas stamped on the right side of the card in memento black.
 I would love to enter my card into the following Challenges :
Fab'n' Funky Challenge - Challenge #235 - Christmas
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog - Challenge #201 - Anything Goes

We would love to have you come on out to play along with us at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Anything Goes is super fun.

Thank you for sharing my new card with me.  Have a fabulous day!!

Kiss The Bride

Good Morning! So excited today is my only day home tonight. I do believe that this just might call for a pajama day!! Wahooooooooooo!

I have a brand new spankin' card for you and it is for the new Creative Knockouts Challenge. We are on Challenge #61 Patchwork Pretties.  I would like to thank our Sponsor this week from Sassy Studio Designs for giving me this beautiful image to use Kiss The Bride.

My card is below and boy oh boy was I excited to do this challenge. I got out my black and white pattern paper from Stampin Up and my square punch and went to town.  I colored the image with Copic's and used wink of Stella on the veil, headband, eye lid and bodice. 

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

Happy Wedding Day!

Hello! I hope this post finds everyone doing well! This past week has been a very hard one for me, emotionally and physically. It is so shocking how a year can fly by even when you are healing and mostly stuck at home.  Yesterday was the one year anniversary of our car accident! So I am trying to put everything into perspective and continue working on my healing process. Onto more happier things.

Our hostess with the mostess is our one and only very talented Lori.  She is challenging us at 4 Crafty Chicks to use Coral, White and Black for Challenge #217.

My card is below and I used two stampin up punches and the arrows stampin up embossing folders. Black pearls were used, along with a Die-namics die and two stamps from Verve.  It is another very clean and simple creation.  At first for some reason I struggled with these colors but next thing I knew it all fell together quite easily. 
We would love to see you at 4 Crafty Chicks to see what this color combo inspires in you. My fellow DT's and our Guest Designer have some amazing creations for you.

Have a fabulous day! I am sending a smile your way :)

Cocoa's Pumpkin - Thanks

Hello friends! I do hope you are well this morning, afternoon or evening where ever you are. Yesterday was a bit blah weather wise, cloudy, rainy and a little on the cool side. Here is hoping today brings us some sun. When big yellow is out my mood is always a little bit brighter.

Today, I am sharing my second DT card but this one is for Creative Knockouts Challenge #59 Animal Friends.  Our fabulous sponsor this week is Sweet'n Sassy Stamps. My cute little image is called Cocoa's Pumpkin. It was so much fun to color this image with my Copic markers.Thanks you very much for the image to color.  There is still so much I need to learn about coloring but personally, the kid comes out in me when I do.  The image is fussy cut out and is surrounded by the border with the Filigree Frame Textured Impressions folder, along with a heart border, with a touch of bling.
My copic colors are Y11, Y15, Y17, Y24, Y28, W1, 13, W5, YR16, YR18, E00, E000, E04, E11, E31, E33, E35, R20.

There is tons of inspiration over at Creative Knockouts and truly you won't be disappointed by my fellow DT's creations, they are simply rockin.  We would love to see what our Animal Friends Challenge inspires in you.

May something bring a smile to your face today and thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!

Happy Birthday!

Hi! I am excited to share my newest DT card with you for 4 Crafty Chicks but first I want to tell you that last night was a night filled with some almost tears(tired not to do my ugly cry) and lots of laughter with my brother.  He took me to watch Tristan's very last home volleyball game of his high school career :) Now we just have a few away games that we won't see and some tournaments that we hope to see. When people tell you high school goes fast it sure does :)  Onto why you are here.

The hostess with the mostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks is me and well there is no better time to break out a Happy Birthday creation.

My card is below and the yummy image is CupCake Cherry On Top from Bugaboo. The sentiment is Teeny Tiny Wishes, Banner Framelits Dies, Bitty Banners, window punch, white bakers twine, chalk marker and button from Stampin Up. A Martha Stewart punch, Wink of Stella.  When coloring the image, I used Copics: E25, E27, E29, Y11, Y13, R29, R59, BG05, BG07.
My fellow Chicks and I would love to see your birthday creations. Please hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and show us your crafty goodness.

Wishing you an tremendously good week with positive thoughts coming your way.

Good Morning! Sorry for the late post...for Creative Knockouts! There were some problems with my image the outline of the image kept bleeding so it was printed 4 times.  The last one worked perfectly.  Of course there are times when you have a deadline and it doesn't work either with family problems.

Creative Knockouts is on Challenge #57 and this week they are asking you to use Lace/Ribbon.  You can use one or both your choice.  Our awesome sponsor this week is The Stamping Chef.  I would love to thank them so much for letting me use this fun image. The image is called Knowlege.

My card is below and has been colored with Stampin Up Alcohol Markers and Copics. I was totally stoked about the layout of my card unfortunately as you will see, I forgot the ribbon/lace.  In the next day or two, another image will be provided for you following the ribbon or lace or both challenge.

 Okay my crafting that I am more awake. Here is the same card missing the pearls but I chose to add Ribbon to my card just like we were supposed to do for our DT projects. The new card is below.
We would love to see how you use the lace/ribbon on your creations this week.  So please hop on over and show us what you got. My fellow DT's have amazing creations to share with you.

Keep smiling and creating!

Hi! Sunshine Anyone?

Good Morning! Can you believe that it is already October? September blew bye in the blink of an eye but for the most part the weather has been beautiful. Yesterday, being the 1st of October we enjoyed blue sky and sun in the morning but by afternoon it was raining and it had cooled down quite a bit.

Singing is Thursday....YAHOO!! Leanne is our hostess with the mostess this week over at 4 Crafty Chicks and for Challenge #214 Sunshine.

Below is my card and well I had an amazing image that was colored up and ready to go.  All I needed was a way to add some sun to it since....shockingly there is not a sun die in my collection. Next best thing Lori said "Why don't you cut a circle hole into something and then dauber a sun in" So thinking that was a brilliant idea, is exactly what happened.

We would love it if you would join us at 4 Crafty Chicks for our challenge this week.  The chicks have some really amazing inspiration to share too.

Thank you for stopping by and have an fantastic week :)
