You are Incredible

Hello! It is another wonderful Thursday as we have a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks. Lori is our hostess and for Challenge #335 she would like us to break out our water coloring skills. My fellow chicks have awesome inspiration for you to see too.

My card above was stamped in Memento black ink and I dug deep into my stash and pulled out my watercolor crayons and the stamp is a retired set from Stampin Up. I kept it with crisp lines as I wanted the focus to be on the image. It was a blast to use the technique again. An awesome challenge.

Join us for our watercolor challenge, we would love to see your amazing creations.

Love You A Latte!

Good morning! This week has been a good one so far. It was great spending time with different friends throughout this week so far. Kaitlyn's team won their basketball game last night so that was a plus hearing her chatting about it.

We are on Challenge #334 and I am the challenge hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks. Most of my friends are Coffee lovers at heart and so in honor of them, the challenge is all about Coffee.

My card above is a My Besties Stamp that I bought at Paper Art Creations in Leduc, Alberta. If you ever get a chance to go, you will fall in love with the store. I used red gems and a die that I used is unknown at this moment. It was a blast to color this up with Copic markers.

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Challenge - #333 - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Challenge #109 - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination Challenge Blog - #120 - Anything Goes

Please join us at 4 Crafty Chicks and share what Coffee inspires in you.

Thank you so much for popping in.

Enjoy an amazing day!

Good morning! The temperature with windchill last night got down to -45, the drifts are crazy. As Winnie the Pooh said, "It's rather a blustery day". Yesterday was a wonderful morning and lunch with my bible study group. They sure bring a smile to my face and it makes me truly grateful to have met this lively and lovely group of women and some men. Our daughter had her first basketball game in the new year, where she had an amazing night even though she came away hurt.

We have a brand new challenge for you at 4 Crafty Chicks this week. Our one and only Nance from Soul Stampin is our hostess this week. Nance is giving us a color combo this week for our #333 challenge. 
Challenge #333 - Navy, Gold, and Coral. 

This color combo was a challenge for me and had me puzzled for a while. It has been a while since I have worked with a specific color combo and in the end, it was a blast. The colors look wonderful together. I used Stampin Up paper, embossing folders and dies. Spellbinders were used along with pop-ups, and pearls. 

I would love to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafting From The Heart - Challenge #142 - Anything Goes
Get Creative Challenge - Challenge #54 - Anything Goes (monthly challenge blog)
Creative Moments - Challenge 108 - Anything goes with a twist something new (Hello is a new die from Christmas).

Thank you so much for the comments and taking the time to take a peek at my new creation.

Good morning my crafty friends.  Welcome to my blog, where I have a brand new DT creation for you.  The card I am sharing with you today is for 4 Crafty Chicks.   For Challenge #332 our hostess this week is Leanne from Banking on Crafts. Leanne would like us to use our Scrap Papers for this challenge.  We are also looking for 3 Guest Designers one for each month February, March, and April.  Please type GDT behind your name to enter to become a GDT.

I broke out the scrap pieces of all the papers. Growing Garden Paper Pad, Glitter Washi scraps, butterflies from white scrap papers. Stampin up paper bottom layer and See ya Later stamp set. This was an awesome challenge as I broke out all my discarded papers and cut out's that I scrapped on other projects. That box is getting huge. Organizing it somehow will take a while but I feel determined to do it.

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