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.

Celebrate with a Bang!!!

Hello! I have my post ready to go this week and on time...Hee hee. Another crazy week here in the Camp house hold. Just like everyone else. Let Volleyball begin :)  September flying by the month is half over...wait a minute didn't it just start.  

A funny story for you.  I have my very first cell phone, I know it is a terrible shock for everyone who knows me (giggle, giggle, snort).  Well I was driving with my middle son to his school orientation and we used the maps app to get there (Edmonton).  He asked me if I could tell where we should turn.  I said no this stupid thing isn't working, I started it and everything (in fairness I did). There was no voice, like on my husbands or Tristan's phone telling me turn right in 300, 250, 30 meters etc.  Well apparently the part I turned on was only showing us what direction we were travelling in. After a few trials of no I you need to turn there and Robin saying where is there (my brain could not for the life of it think to say move over to the left lane, all I could say was there...hee hee)(brain fart #40). I was pointing but apparently that wasn't enough.  He gets the app working at the stop light and we get to where we are going.  He starts laughing and says. "Mom do you remember when we were younger and we used to say something was over there.  You would get frustrated because you didn't know where over there was, well I just experienced it. Where actually is there?" We laughed so hard. Hopefully this makes sense.  I tend to confuse everyone since the accident, so forgive me if my rambling doesn't make sense.

It is my turn to host 4 Crafty Chicks this week and for Challenge #264 please break out the circles. I love circles! You can use, buttons, dies, punches and oh don't forget those embossing folders.  It was a blast to color this image and to use these colors.

Please come and join us this week. We would love to have you. Looking for more inspiration my fellow chicks have done an outstanding job.

May plenty of smiles come your way!
Thanks for sharing this card with me today.

Happy Birthday!

So sorry for the extreme lateness of my post.  My mom informed me that I didn't have my card posted today.  It has been a crazy time here with me having a bleed in my left eye and my hubby has not been good healthwise. Lot's of appointments.

Tina is our hostess this week and she is challenging us to Birthday for our Challenge #263 over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  You still have time to play.

I love this image and it was fun to add the texture to the image.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have an amazing day!!!

Hello and welcome back to my blog to see my latest DT creation for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge. We have three sponsors again this month so please look below to see who they are the prizes that they will offer, please click on the image to be taken to their site.

The sponsor I worked with this month is Fresh Brewed Designs.  They let me use this Study Time Bible. I just loved the image because it made me think of my Bible Study group that I belong too. I would also love to make this image into a tag to put in my bible  and for my friends. There is two images of this one that has Holy Bible written on the side and one that doesn't. I just realized this so you can personalize the book. I actually just noticed this when linking the image for you...LOL.

Prize ~ 3 Images from

Prize ~ 5 Images from

Prize ~ 1 image from
It was blessing to create this card with my mom. We don't get to craft together much, so the time spent together was with a grateful heart.  She was coloring learning how to use my copic markers.

We would really love to see your creations this month. If you want even more inspiration my fellow DT's have out done themselves over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge.

Guest Designer Call and Fall Challenge

Hello!!! I hope this 1st Thursday is going well. Last night I have discovered that I have definitely lost my crafting mind. Thinking I have not completed a project to only notice when I go to post it that I have already done this weeks challenge.  For another one, I colored an image three weeks in advance and then realized that I wasn't coloring the right image when I looked up what the challenge was.  So it might be the first day of school for my daughter but my brain needs a break....LOL.

Our hostess with the mostess is our one and only talented Leanne.  Her challenge for us is to create something to do with Fall for Challenge #262.  We are also holding a Guest Designer call for the months of October, November and December.  If you would like to join our team for one of these months please added GDT behind your name.  The Chicks would love to have you.

My image was colored on a weekend away with two of my chicks. It was so nice to laugh, color and just enjoy one another.  The paper is from Stampin Up and the flowers, leaves were from my long forgotten stash.

Please come and join us this week with your Fall creations. We would love to see you. Don't forget my fellow chicks have some very cool Fall master pieces to show you and put GDT after your name if you would love to join us for a month.

Thanks for joining me for my second post today.  Happy September 3rd.
