Dare to Dream

Good morning! School's out for summer :)  Let the fun begin. I am super excited our holidays to begin.

We have an easy challenge for you over at 4 Crafty Chicks. Nance is our hostess this week and being as we have 5 Thursdays in the month of June our challenge is Anything Goes! The above card was made using Gina Marie Designs Ship die, Stampin Up ink (Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie), Memento Tuxedo Black, and Impression Obsession Rubber Stamps.

For some reason, this die cut was making me think of Peter Pan tonight. Sometimes we just need that reminder not to forget about our dreams.

Please join us for this easier challenge.

Toolshed Ted

Good morning to you! The weather has been crazy this week and at times, I think that my house might have flown across the country it has been so strong.

Happy new challenge Thursday over at Creative Knockouts. Our challenge is For The Boys. I would love to thank our sponsor from Dr. Digi House of Stamps for letting me high lite Toolshed Ted. 

My card above was made for my dad for Father's Day. He loves working in his garden and growing the biggest veggies possible. The image just made me giggle and thought it was perfect for him. I used My Favorite Things stitched rectangle dies, Verve Stamp, Stampin' Up pattern/paper stock, paper piercing tool, and Copic Markers.

Come on over and join us this week at Creative Knockouts.

Thanks for joining me today!

Have an amazing day :)


Good morning! I do believe that Thursday should be marked as happy dancing day! What also makes today a great day is we have another challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and Lori is our hostess. Her wonderful challenge is for us to create using Sunflowers. I love all of the different kinds of sunflowers, the colors are so rich and just bring such joy.

My card above is colored with Copic Markers. The Thinking of You stamp is from your Next Stamp, the digi image is from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps, the circle dies are from Spellbinders, the paper and punch are from Stampin Up, and the embossing folder is from cuttle bug.

Come and join us for this wonderful challenge. The girls have amazing inspiration for you.

Enjoy your day!

With Sympathy!

It is a pleasure to share a brand new card with you. Nance is our hostess at 4 Crafty Chicks for Challenge #354. Nance would like us to use a Triple Mat Technique to make a With Sympathy Card.

I am trying this technique for the first time so what a great challenge. It took me a bit to find what stamp to use to make it. It is amazing to see so many stunning cards using this technique. I am very sorry about my picture it is blurry once again. Another tutorial, I will have to find (hee hee). It has been a long time since I have actually stamped without my Misti, that it took several practices to get something decent. 

My card was made using Stampin' Up punches, Sweetbriar Rose and Teeny Tiny Wishes. The image was colored using Copic Markers. The paper is also from Stampin' Up.

Please join us for this fun-filled challenge. Looking for more inspiration my fellow chicks, have stunning creations.

Thank you!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Thursday! Today is 4 Crafty Chicks day and there is a brand new challenge for you. Our hostess this week is Leanne.  Happy Birthday is our Challenge this week for #353. I would like to say a huge welcome to Alicia from Golden Goddess Designs. She is our Guest Designer for the month of June.

So many birthdays coming up in the next few months. It never hurts to have cards made up ahead of time. The dies are Unbranded. The paper/oval punch is from Stampin Up and the stamp is from Verve. This is one card that what I had in my head did not transpire on the page. Sometimes it can be frustrating but still hoping you find it inspiring.

Please come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks this week.

Have a truly amazing day!
