Home for the Holidays

Good Morning!
Today is a hard morning for me, as this is my last post with
The Chicks.  Our lives are changing right now so my priority will
be with my family.
I want to thank Lori and Leanne for being my partners in crafting 
since the beginning of 4 Crafty Chicks. It has been an
awesome dream to do this blog with my friends.
(7 1/2 years still going strong and very proud of it).
Nance it has been a pleasure getting to know you 
and work with you this last year.
I would like to welcome Amy Ottmers, who will be taking over my
perch in the Hen house, next week.

We are on Challenge #383 and Lori is our hostess this
week. She has an awesome challenge for us.

Challenge #383 - Glitter

My image above show ornaments. Our family friend Ang was
at our house and she wanted to make ornaments
for Christmas presents so I joined her.
We used pledge floor cleaner and tons of glitter.
The glitter was Martha Stewart and I have had them
for years. It was a blast and so easy.
Then we added rub -ons to the outside and Sharpie oil base markers.

Join us for our last challenge of 2017.

Tis The Season

Good afternoon friends!
My post for 4 Crafty Chicks is a few days late
It has been a hectic time but it sure is 
nice to get into my craft room and create a new
creation each week.

Our wonderful hostess this week is Nance
and she has a fun filled challenge, that had me digging
into my old stash of stamps.

Challenge #381 Christmas/Winter Critters

The first thing I did this week was remember this stamp
Animals at Christmas time are super dooper cute
I adore penguins and I love, love, love bears.
Just had to find this oldie but goodie.
So out came the dazzling diamonds, the copic markers,
dies, embossing folder and pattern paper to create this card.

We would really love to see you join us this week.
You still have time to play at 4 Crafty Chicks
as our challenge ends on Tuesday 12 noon

Merry Christmas

Good morning!
Today at 4 Crafty Chicks, we have an Anything Goes Challenge
Lori is our hostess for Challenge #379.

Summer found this cool card that she cased last weekend from Pinterest. Should have taken a picture of her favorite one (next time, she is very talented). Click for details from Gemma Evans 
DIY Christmas Cards: Reindeer Fingerprint Cards
It was fun to try and do my own take on this card. 
It was a little different in my head but I think a reindeer tree is kind of fun.
Creamy Caramel ink is what I used for the reindeer faces, along with my fingers. The noses were made using real red ink and a pencil eraser. A fine tip marker for the antlers and eyes. A green felt marker for the tree, and of course some dazzling diamonds.

An easy design and one that will be so much fun to make with our grandson Emery one day!

Please come and join us this week. We would love to see your creations.
Thanks for sharing this card with me.
Have an amazing day

Let It Snow!

Good morning! 

Happy Thanksgiving to our family/friends in the states.

Our wonderful hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks is Lori!

For challenge #378 she is challenging us to create using the theme of Winter Activities.  

It has been snowing and blowing here so it was fun to think of what stamp to use. I got thinking of all of the snowball fights that we used to have with our kids and snowman building. So digging in my old stamps sets I went.  This stamp set is from Stampin' Up, an oldie but a goodie. Hope you like it.

Please join for our latest challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
