4 Crafty Chicks #87

"No Stamping Zone" at 4 Crafty Chicks, I thought this was going to be hard, till I was finishing my husbands birthday gift.  He restored a 1970 Boss 302 Mustang last year and so I was the photographer on this project.  But sneaky like he didn't know I was also scrapbooking an album for his birthday.  This is the last page, and the simple stickers I found worked great.  Thanks for stopping here, please go on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and see the design teams creations and play along.  Also I would like to thank Heather and Kasey for being on our team as guest designers, awesome job ladies...look forward to seeing your creations in cyber land.
Happy Crafting everyone!

Paper~BZ-Black, Blue.
Accessories~Ribbon, Foam Squares, Stickers.
A bonus today, I decided to add a card to this post, I didn't add it to the 4 Crafty Chicks blog just this one, as I did it after I finished the album.  I sure had fun with these, they are harder than I thought, kept wanting to grab my ink pad and a stamp.  The sentiment on this card was done on the computer in word!  Thanks again Lori for giving us this challenge.
Here is my card:

Paper~Black, White, SU-Soft Suede, BoBunny Pattern Paper.
Ink~SU-Early Espresso for the edges.
Accessories~SU-Punch, Spellbinders, Bo-Bunny Sticker, Ribbon, Foam Squares, Charms-Walmart, Glue Dots.

4 Crafty Chicks #86

"Boys Dig It"
When Tamie from Paper Infusions and More came up with this challenge for 4 Crafty Chicks, I was tickled.  I really don't do enough boy/men cards/projects.  So I started to look thru stamps, ideas, and then I got worried.  I don't have many.  So I went in search for clipart/digi stamps something.  I found this cute little bear diggin! It was perfect.  Thanks Tamie for challenging me, it has been fun.
Thanks for stopping and I can't wait to see what everyone has created with this challenge, so please pop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and play along with the design team!
Paper~Basic Black, Unknown Pattern Paper, Daffodil Delight, White.
Ink~Black, Early Espresso, Copic.
Accessories~Spellbinders, foam squares, Spiral Ring, Dauber for inking edges.

4 Crafty Chicks #85

Hello Crafters, Melissa from My Paper Obsession is our hostess today at 4 Crafty Chicks, and she has challenged us to use material/fabric on our project.  So I thought, this was going to be interesting, thought, maybe a bow with flowers, or just a few strips on the card, but nope, then thought I wonder if I could stamp and color on it.  Well yes, I can and it was fun!  Next time I am going to try a piece of fabric that is plain not pattern.  Anyway thanks Melissa this was fun!

 Hello windy Tuesday, wow, I think I need to put rocks in my pockets today to go outside, might fly away, very breezy here.  But sunny and the snow is still melting nicely. 
This is a Stampin' Up! rose that I always have loved, and today, it became a card for my sister-in-laws birthday which is on Thursday!  Shhhhh don't tell her yet!  I hope you can see that I used the spellbinders and popped up the cajun craze paper, and the flowers were my favorite thing to make.  I also used my spica pens for a bit of sparkle on the petals, a friend said it would be a nice touch.  You can't see in the photos, but it is really nice.  Thanks for stopping and remember you have today to go over to 4 Crafty Chicks and play in our Flower challenge.  
Thanks again, and Happy Crafting!!
