Beautiful You!

Hello! Welcome to my blog! Today is 4 Crafty Chicks Thursday, which means a brand new challenge for you to play in. Our crafty hostess this week is Lori and here is what she would like you to create

Challenge #374 - Polka Dots

The card above was a blast to make. I used flowers to highlight the dies and the image. The image was stamped and then the pattern paper was fussy cut to fit the image. The white dots were suggested by Leanne to add a little pop. It has been a long time since I have broke out my white pen, sure glad that it worked.
As you can tell I got very happy with the Polka Dots. I really like them. All of the paper, embossing, and stamps (Beautiful You) are from Stampin' Up. The first layer of dies are from Spellbinders(Labels Eighteen) and the die the image is stamped on is from Gina Marie Designs. The flowers are Prima Flowers.

Thank you so much for joining me today. We would love to see you at 4 Crafty Chicks.


Have an amazing day!

Travel has been...

Hello! Welcome to my blog. The weather is not slowing down for being all over the place. We had a really beautiful day on Tuesday and it quickly changed when the wind picked up and caused so much damage across our province and to the province of Saskatchewan too. Major fires people evacuated, trains blew off the tracks, rooves coming off some buildings, trees down and semi's overturned on the high way. Hoping the weather settles down to a peaceful quiet for a while.

I am the hostess over at 4 Crafty Chicks this week.  We are on challenge #373. I love paper, colors, textures and pattern paper is just so fabby. The problem is sometimes, I think it is too pretty to use and next thing you know I am hoarding it.  Let's break it out and use it.

Challenge #373 - Use 3 Pattern Papers

A clean and simple card using Soft Suede and River Rock for the solid paper. The pattern paper is from Indie chic "ginger" My Mind's Eye.  Love the oval stitched dies from My Favorite Things, and the flower die is from Poppy Stamps called Wild Rose Bud. I dug out a neglected stamp set is from CLOUD9 Design Simple Thoughts - Travel that talks lots about vacations and travel. It was stamped in Soft Suede ink.

Please come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks. We would love to see your work.

Halloween Candy Corn

Good morning! The weather has been a little unsettled the last few days. Yesterday, it was sunny earlier, then cloudy and next thing we know it was raining but the temperatures dropped and felt like it just might snow. I am truly hoping that the snow will hold off for quite a while.

Thanks to Your Kindness...

Hello, friends! Have you had a good week? My week so far has mostly week wonderful. I had a visit from a friend, saw one friend briefly and was able to skype with Lori. This weekend is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I would like to take the time to thank everyone who supports my blog and me in my life's journey.  My life is so blessed with all of my family and friends.

Thank you so much for joining me today, for my brand new DT card for 4 Crafty Chicks.  A big hello and welcome to our Hen House Natalie (Crafty Natalie's Blog). Natalie is our Guest Designer for the month of October.  Our hostess this week is Leanne from Banking on Crafts. For Challenge #371 she would like us to create an Easel card.

My card above is a first for me. It is called a Twisted Easel card and was really a blast to make. My only frustration was it took me 3 times to not glue the first layer all the way done, only half is glued down so you can do the twist.  It is a fun challenge and had me thinking out of the box. Love challenges like this.

Items used: The pattern paper that was used is from Just Dreamy 2 by Christy Lyle & Zoe Peam  "My Love". All of the other paper/pattern paper/embossing folders are from Stampin' Up. The dies are from Stampin Up Framelit circle collection, Gina Marie's Stitched Star dies, Poppy Stamps Small Garden Sprigs and a bird punch from Stampin Up.

Please come and join us, we would really like to see your inspiration.

Have an amazing day! Smiles and hugs are coming your way.
