I love fall, the colors, and crisp air, the smells of the farmers getting their harvest off. So this card reminds me of my grandparents place when I was a kid, so thought it was fitting for this challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. Please pop over and play along, drop us a note, and Happy Crafting!

Whimsy Stamps Challenge

 Another windy day here in North Central Alberta.  Makes for those trees to look like sticks, and bare.  No leaves, or getting less.  I hope the temps come back out, only 15C/59F right now, feels much cooler with the wind, time to light those candles and bring out the fuzzy slippers.

Today I thought I would try again and make a card for the challenge at "Whimsy Stamps", it is "Love of Pets".  I don't have any, but I did have a gold fish once.  And this digital image from KennyK downloads was perfect.  So pop on over to Whimsy Stamps and check out what the design team created, and thanks for stopping here.  Happy Crafting!

4 Crafty Chicks Embossing

Hello there, another fun challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks, today's challenge is brought to you by our good friend Tamie. Thanks for this "Embossing" challenge. I like dry and wet embossing, but for this one, I have a wee bit of a funny to tell you. I was cyber crafting with my friends, and they, know who they are. Anyway, I put this card all together and I forgot to put the embossing on it. I was like oh no, now what. So they were laughing at me, cuz it was pretty funny, but then again I will have to make another card. I ended up taking the sentiment back off, redoing it with versafine and clear embossing powder, heat it up, and back on the card it went. Sorry Tamie was going to try and WOW you...was a funny day. Thanks for stopping by, and see you soon. Happy Crafting.
Supplies:SU-Early Espresso, MME. Stamps~Grant Archival. Ink~Versafine Black. Accessories~Flowers, Brad, Bling, Spellbinder, MS Punch, Foam Squares, Glue Dots, Clear Embossing Powder, Leaves, SU Punch.
