Eleanor and Pickles Reindeer Fun!

Hey there!It is Christmas Day and this is my second post for you. May this season provide you with good memories, tons of laughter, peace, relaxation and hopefully some crafty time.

My card this time is for a very wonderful blog called Creative Knockouts.  We are on Challenge #69 and guess what???? It is an ANYTHING GOES challenge :).  Our amazing sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine and they provided me with Eleanor and Pickles Reindeer Fun! Thank you so much, I just adore these images.

For the first time I have tried to do a monochromatic coloring for an image and really hope I did okay. There are so many talented crafters who make this style look so incredible.

When your have time please join us for this fun Anything Goes Challenge at Creative is time to get your crafting groove on.

From my house to yours  have a very safe Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays :)

Merry Christmas with a Sketch

Merry Christmas to you, Merry Christmas to you and Happy Holidays! It is Christmas Eve as I type this and tonight we are waiting for my brother and his kids to get here to break out the games.  It has been a crazy, crazy week trying to get shopping done and I vow right here, right now, we will not ever be last minute shoppers again.  Still can't to watch everyone open their present and have Christmas morning breakfast.

I still can't believe that Christmas is here but when you got time we would love you to join us at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Lori is hostess this week with a very fun challenge! For Challenge #226 she wants us to use her wonderful sketch. I followed this one right down to the bow.  It was a blast to create.

It has been a long time since I broke out my stamps but felt that this is what this sketch needed.  The stamp is from Stampin Up and so is all of the paper and ribbon.
If you have some spare time to get crafty, please grab a cup of java and show us (4 Crafty Chicks) your craftiness.

From my family to yours please have a safe and very happy holidays!!

A Very Merry Christmas with a little Charm

Hello from small town Millet, Alberta! This past week has been crazy busy but oh did I get a chance last night to some very incredible kids play in the band and sing.  There is nothing quite like Christmas songs to bring cheer into your heart. Everyone is so very busy but it is so nice to see everyone stop to take a little breather and just be.

Lucky me, I am your hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks and for Challenge #225, I would like you to break out the Charms. Easy Peasy right??

My creation is below and I used Trim the Tree pattern paper, a punch and a stamp from Stampin up. The snowflakes are punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. It seemed that it was a struggle to find where to put the charm on and with out came my sorely neglected brads and woo-la the rest is history.
Looking for more inspiration we my fellow chicks will not disappoint. Please hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks to check out their creation. We would love to see what you create.

Thanks for pop in and have an fantastic day!!

"I Do", He Said....

Happy Thursday!! Today, I am off to Edmonton for my second workout this week :) It is supposed to be another day with beautiful temperatures. The snow is melting very fast, which can be good or bad with the rain that tends to come with it. Nobody likes freezing rain. The best part is this week my mom is driving me so, that means a little extra time together.

My fellow chick Tina is our wonderful hostess this week and she would like us to make a ONE LAYER creation for Challenge #224. If you need more inspiration my fellow DT's have rocked this challenge out over at 4 Crafty Chicks.

My very clean and simple one layer card below, was so much fun to create. At first it had me stumped but then I remember this stamp from a few years ago...yes it has been sorely neglected. It truly is perfect for this type of card. I colored it with Copics and forgot to write down my numbers.
Please join us at 4 Crafty Chicks for our one layer challenge and show us what it inspires in you.

Wishing you a day filled with smiles. Thanks for stopping by.

It's Beginning To Look Alot Like Christmas!

Hello! It is getting close to Christmas but we seem to be having some warmer temperatures here in central Alberta, that is melting the snow quite fast.  I like that the roads will be clear when going up to the clinic each week. My week so far has consisted of basketball game/tryouts (not for me...LOL, for Tristan and Kaitlyn), Christmas parties, and a little bit of Christmas shopping.

Creative Knockouts has a new challenge for us. For Challenge #67 - Tis The Season (easy peazy right?).  Our wonderful sponsors this week are from Inky Impressions and I would like to thank them for this cute image and sentiment to use this week.

My card below is 6 x 5 1/2. It is colored using copics and the paper is Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Whisper White. The Ribbon is Elegant Egg Plant and Twine.  Hope you like it!
Come on over to Creative Knockouts to play, we would love to have you and see what this season is inspiring in you.

Have an amazing day! Thanks for stopping in.

Today, we are on Challenge #223 Animals. Our hostess with the mostess at 4 Crafty Chicks this week is our one and only Leanne.

My card below is made with a Mlejin digi called Sweet Little Donkey.  The texture was added by a Darcie embossing folder. This cute, cute image was colored with copics.  The little banner punch is from Stampin Up. My paper is from Stampin Up Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Bashful Blue.
 Hop on over and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks...there is more inspiration waiting for you.
