Anything Goes

Happy New's Eve and New Years Day to family, friends and everyone around the world.  May this year bring new memories, a reason to smile, happiness, peace and time for everyone to get a chance to relax.  Thank you all who have taken the time to play at 4 Crafty Chicks this past year for the comments you leave for me. Without you all 4 Crafty Chicks wouldn't be what it is today. It warms my heart.

Hopefully you might get a chance to join us this week at 4 Crafty Chicks. Leanne is our hostess and it is the 5th Thursday in the month so we have an Anything Goes Challenge for #279. We also have a crazy egg badge up for grabs to along with our Top Pick. Just inspire us with your creation.  My card above is designed by me but my daughter Kaitlyn colored this image quite a while ago.  I told her that I would use it and well the time was now.  She has done an amazing job.

Have a beautiful week!

I would like to wish ever on a Happy Christmas Eve and a Merry Christmas tomorrow. May this Christmas season bring many blessing big or small to your family and friends.

We have  a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and Lori is our hostess this week.  Even though it is a super busy time, if you get some new crafty goodness, I hope you can still share your creativeness with us this week. For challenge #278 Lori would like us to create something to do with a Wedding.  When I was little I dreamed of a winter wedding, a sleigh ride, trees with white lights and a Christmas wedding.  This card popped into my mind.  Hope you like it.

Wishing a season of new memories to cherish.

Hi! Thanks for joining me while I share my latest DT creation for 4 Crafty Chicks.  We are so close to Christmas, spending time with family. As I think about when I kids were younger I can remember the snowball fights, snow angels and it was always a blast making snowmen.  It is my turn to host the challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and I would like to challenge everyone for Challenge #277 to break out their snowman/snowmen creations. A clean and simple creation but I love this image and stamping up creation.

My fellow DT's and GDT have amazing inspiration for you.

What does Winter mean to you? It means to me lots and lots of snow. Beautiful scenes and sometimes the snowfalls that have the big and fluffy flakes are like being in a snow globe. I like to burn candles at this time of year and sit in front of a fire place. Hot Chocolate also means Winter to me.

We have a new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and our beautiful, very talented Leanne is wanting you to create something to do with Winter. We are on Challenge #275 - Winter.

A clean and simple winter card. When I think of Winter I think of big fat snowflakes. Each one so different, it is like being in a snow globe.

Have an amazing week!

Christmas Pixy Two

Hi there! Welcome winter was sure welcomed in this week. High winds, some rain and a good dump of snow.  Monday and Tuesday sure were hunker down and stay in the house if you could days.  The sun should be peaking out today and melting some of the snow.  Be careful friends and family give yourself extra time to get places.

Today, I get to highlight this cute image called Christmas Pixy two and it is by A Day for Daisies. They are our sponsor this week at Creative Knockouts.  Our Challenge for #117 is Festive Fun.

Prize: $12 Gift Certificate
The image above has been colored with Copic markers and the my oval dies are from My Favorite Things. The paper, punch and embossing folder is from Stampin Up! This is my favorite time of year. I love the music, songs, lights and the decorations.

Wishing you all a fantastic day.  Remember my fellow teammies have wonderful inspiration for you over at Creative Knockouts.

News Kid

Happy Thanksgiving to our friends in the U.S.  I am wishing my family, friends and fellow crafter's many new memories with loved ones. Grateful for each and everyone of you.

Don't we all love it when the news tells us about snow? Well I can honestly say this year not me, sometimes I cringe but usually I like to hunker down and get my crafts out and go like mad making stuff.  Our beautiful and talented Lori is our hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks.  She would like us for Challenge #274 - Masculine.

I always feel for our news paper kids who walk house to house on those cold days.  My card has a snowflake textured background to add to the image but other than that it is super clean and simple. The image is colored using Copic's. 

Have an amazing week.

Santa Claus is Coming To Town.

Good Morning! What is new this week?  Well we had our first snow fall of the season and some rain that made it slippery but the snow is melting fast.  The wind has been a little bit cooler the last few days.

Anjelicia's Giant Pumpkin

It is hard to believe that October is almost over.  On Halloween night my cousin and my nephew were born on this night. The best Halloween ever. My daughter and her friend will be trick or treating and they made their costumes this year. So proud of them. Coloring with ones eyes dilated after a specialist visit is not recommended.  I did that with this picture, it is super hard to do and not my best work.

The Challenge #113 for Creative Knockouts this week is Halloween Time. Our sponsor this week is Inky Impressions and they let me use this amazing image called  Anjelica's Giant Pumpkin 
Prize: 3 Digis
We would love it if you come and play with us over at Creative Knockouts

Thanks for stopping by. My newest creation is made for Creative Knockouts, where our sponsor is from Kenny K Downloads.  They kindly let me use this fun image and it was a blast to color her up with my copics. Thank you.

For Challenge #111 -Metal Mode (use metal of some sort on your card-charm, metal foil, etc) . Kelly would like us to dig into our stash and find some metal to use on our projects. My fellow DT's have some real master pieces to show you. (Sorry for the picture, it doesn't do it justice.  The shine on it was bad. I will try to take another picture to show you.  I used metal brads and aluminum tin foil for the background.

What does your day hold for you? Today, I am going to watch a volleyball game of my daughters. Love this time of year with the sports. Hoping to break out my crocheting tonight.

Come out and join us at Creative Knockouts we would love to see you.

What a great weekend! We enjoyed family, turkey and games. It is so much fun to get everyone together. This year we were very lucky to have my sister and her two kids here from beautiful Victoria BC.

A brand new challenge is up over at 4 Crafty Chicks brought to you by me.  For Challenge #268, I want you to break out your Pearls. My fellow Chicks are Pearls Queens.  Be sure to checkout their inspiration.

My card above uses the image from A Random Fan. The pattern paper and papers came from Stampin Up. My image is colored using copics and of course the pearls.  The die cut that was used is a scalloped oval from Spellbinders. Once again I feel my picture taking is not going very well these days.  Sorry for an unclear picture.  If it looks better than I think could you let me know please.

Happiness is...

Good good morning! We are heading towards our Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. We had some huge winds this past weekend and boy oh boy did the leaves fall down to the ground. The richness of the colors just keeps me in awe of the beauty of nature.

Over at 4 Crafty Chicks we have a brand new challenge for you.  Tina is your hostess this week and she gave us a fun, fun challenge. 


Believe it or not this is the first time I have done something like this. Fall colors were in my mind and well I was trying to recreate a sunset but not sure if that happened.  Stamps used were from Stampin Up and Verve.  Markers from stampin up.

Please breakout your crafting supplies and come crafting with us over at 4 Crafty Chicks. We would love to see your creations.

Have an amazing day!

Nature Tots Series - Flower Sent

Good afternoon! It is a sunny blue skied day here in Millet Alberta. The wind has slightly picked up and the colors of all of the trees are simply an artists portrait.

 Sorry to my fellow Creative Knockouts family for the lastness of my post this week.  I got messed up on my weeks and then when looking for my card, I realized that it was given away. Did I take any pictures nope. It was then that I took notice of the mess that I got myself into.  I was super super frustrated.  Now for my newly colored image and new card.

We are on CHALLENGE #109 and Kelly would like you to make a creation with LOTS OF LAYERS.

Our sponsor for this week is Lemon Shortbread and they are offering up a chance to Win 3 Digi's.

I am using the Flower Sent image, love, love, love it.

Please hop on over to see the marvelous work of my fellow teammies and show us what lot's of layers looks like to you.

Thanks for stopping by.

Breaking Out The Washi Tape

Hello and happy 1st day of October! It seems like school just started but some of my friends were talking and saying that their kids in College/University are writing midterms already.  I just couldn't believe it.  Today, is my lucky day, I get to go watch Kaitlyn's team play a volleyball game but before I get to go play the work needs to be done.

It is Thursday and the very first week of the month.  So we have our very talented Leanne with our challenge and we are introducing Guest Designer for this month.  Her name is Emily!  

Challenge #266
Washi Tape
So this challenge was super dooper fun.  I started making my card and well to be honest got a little bit stumped after I got the washi tape laid down.  My mom gave me these long sheets of Washi Tape by Stampin Up, it is sooooooo cool.  You can use it with die cuts make it as big or as small as you want. Each strip is a from one in this package.  My stamps have been a little lonely so, dusting this one off, it just seemed like the right size.  A touch of bling and ribbon/bow to finish off this quick and easy Washi Tape creation.

Hope you enjoy this card.  My fellow chicks have amazing creations for you this week.  We would love to see yours.

Remember to share a smile it just might make someones day!!

Happy Anniversary!!

Welcome to my blog from small town Millet, Alberta.  As I am typing this the sky is a beautiful blue and it is breezy. The sun is getting ready to set but a very nice fall night. It is hard to believe that we have already welcomed in fall and that September doesn't have many days left in it.  My excitement for today is that I get to watch my daughters first volleyball game of the year and she already has a tournament this weekend. So awesome. Let the games begin :) .

Today is a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and our hostess is our beautiful chick Lori.  For Challenge #265 she would like us to use Sparkle and Shine.  My card above has sparkley or shiny paper.  I also used dazzling diamonds and my Wink of Stella.  The brown paper is very shiny and sparkly.  The flourish of pearls was my touch of bling. My layout is very simple but I wanted to highlight this stamp.

Please hop on over to our 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge Blog.  I would love to see you amazing creations. My fellow teamies have amazing creations to share with you.

Thank you so much for taking a peak and leaving comments for me.  I truly appreciate them.

Happy Fall Y'all

It sure is starting to feel a lot like fall now. We never turn our furnace on until the middle or end of October but we broke down the other day and turned it on. It has been chilly and cloudy here the last few days with rain.  I won't complain because the air smells wonderful and we really could use the rain. Unfortunately once again it is at the wrong time as the farmers are trying to get their crops harvested.

Kelly has a brand new challenge for us over at Creative Knockouts. For Challenge #107 - Happy Fall Y'all.  Easy right.  I love this time of year with the rich multitude of colors.  I would like to thank Sami Stamps who is our sponsor this month for letting me use this very, very cute image Little Acorn Hoot.

Prize: $12 Gift Certificate
My fellow DT's have inspiration that will knock your socks off.  Please hop on over to Creative Knockouts, share some love and grab a cup of java and join us. 

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.  Here is to many blessings coming your way.
