Hello Friend, Grateful for you...

 Picture below is the inside of the card

Hello my friends! Time sure is flying by. This is the last long weekend before our daughter/son goes to school. Our oldest one started school on Monday.

We have a fantastic challenge for you at Creative Knockouts this week. Kelly would like to see you Finish the Insides of your cards for Challenge #209. Excellent challenge for me because I just don't seem to do it enough.  I would love to thank our sponsor for this week from All Dressed Up. They let me use the image called  Follow Your Dream. It was fun to color it up. 

My husband and I went hot air ballooning once and it was fantastic. The landing was a little scary but over all it was worth the champagne at the end.

Prize: 2 Images

Please come and join us at Creative Knockouts. We would totally love to see you and your inspiration.

Have an amazing day and thanks for stopping by.

You Are A Gift!

Good morning crafting peeps! I hope that you are having an amazing week filled with tons of laughter.  We are enjoying the last few days before school starts back up. It is crazy to believe that our daughter is going into grade 10 already. It truly has been a great summer.

This month we have 5 Thursdays so that means that our challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks is easy peasy. Challenge #366 is an Anything Goes Challenge and we also pick a Crazy Egg Winner along with our normal winners. The Crazy Egg winner has their very own special badge.  I am your hostess for this weeks challenge.

Be sure to check out my fellow DT's for their inspiration this week.

Happy, Happy, Happy 4 Crafty Chicks Thursday! Today, I am your hostess and my challenge for #364 is to break out your Sequin's.  They have sadly been ignored in my crafting drawers so thought that it was time to break them out and use them again.

Yesterday was a big, big day for someone who is amazing, loving, caring, hard working and thinks of others. My mom is my hero and my hero turned 70 yesterday! I am really hoping that it was a very special day for her and one that she will enjoy and remember forever.

Furry Friends

I am back with my second post for today! I am excited to share this cute fun card with you; it is for Creative Knockouts. We are on challenge #205 and Kelly would love to see some FURRY FRIENDS!

Our wonderful sponsor this week is  Kelly -  Prize: $25 + CTMH Gift pack. Thank you so much Kelly for being our sponsor this week.

My card above is made with this cute image. It makes me think of images that my mom just adores with puppies. Something that she would have created in her days of doing Ceramic's. The card is colored using Copic Markers, Doodlebug flowers, ribbon, brads and buttons, Pattern paper (BoBunny, Talyored Expressions), Stampin Up Twine.

Please come and join us at Creative Knockouts this week. My fellow DT's have out done themselves again with their furry friends creations.

Thank you popping over to see my card.

Have a really blessed day!


We have an amazing new challenge for you this week at 4 Crafty Chicks. It is mind blowing that we are in the first week of August, "what?". Our beautiful hostess is Leanne and for Challenge #362 she would like us to create something Masculine.  We also have our brand new Guest Designer for the month of August and her name is Lyn from Crafty Lyn's Blog. Welcome to our hen house.

My card above is made using Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Whisper White Stampin Up Paper. The pattern paper is by BoBunny. The stamp I used is from a retired stamp set from Stampin Up called Bareback. I thought it was the perfect image for a masculine card with these colors. It had me thinking of my brother who is a horse nut. I sponged around the image with Cajun Craze ink.

We would really love to have you join us this week with a masculine creation.
August Guest Designer, Lyn!
Thanks for joining me today!
