My Step Card

Hello from another wet North Central Alberta, we've gotten over 7 inches of rain in a week, feels squishy on our lawn, can't believe how many fields around here are under water, rivers high too.  Oh well today it is a work and bake day.  Cookies are on the go.  Laundry all done, now maybe more crafting.
I made this card on Sunday and never put it on my blog, so here we go.  I recieved this Stampavie Stamp in my 7kidscollegefund order last month, super cute don't you think. I tried another step card, and think it turned out pretty good, a few mishaps but for the most part it is good.  
Thanks for stopping, and another thanks to Catch the Bug for all the fun last week, and winners and always Totally Stampalicious.  
Have a great day!  Happy Crafting!

4 Crafty Chicks #99 Make a Box

Hello fellow crafter's, today at 4 Crafty Chicks challenge is pretty simple, make a box!  Thanks Tamie for this fun challenge.  I thought, I could just make a box and decorate it, then I seen this explosive box and thought ya, that will work, my parents are celebrating their 55 years of marriage in three days.  In one of the many pictures below is a place for a gift card that I will add in here.  As what do you really get one that has everything they need.  This was pretty fun!  I made the ring charms, I stamped the rings on shrink film, and heated it up.  Love me that stuff.  
I thought it was kind of fun putting their years on the outsides!

 Have a great day, thanks for stopping by and please go over to 4 Crafty Chicks, and see what the design team has come up with, and Happy Crafting!

Bugaboo Monday

Hello again, I just realized I forgot to post my project that I made for the Catch the Bug Challenge on Monday.  Slow today I think, not sure what happened to me. Haha!  So pretend I posted this one on Monday.
They are having a great fun week at Catch the Bug, having Christmas in July all week, so much fun going on over there, please play along, or blog hop or just go comment, we love hearing from you.  They asked us at Totally Stampalicious to blog hop with them and it has been so fun.  My project is a wine tag, or whatever, I guess it could be a tag for anything, but my good talented friend at Inspiring Bella Crafts made this tag awhile back and I loved it so much, so I lifted her idea, and thanks for sharing your talent Charlene.  Please go over to her blog and give her some love too.  She is so talented.
The image I used is from Totally Stampalicious Stella Peeker Another Drink, I don't think I would use this image normally for Christmas, but then thought, for this tag it works great.  Thanks for stopping and I am sure I will be back soon, I am sure I have forgotten something.  Have a great afternoon, and Happy Crafting!

Bugaboo Humor

Good Day Wednesday, hope you are enjoy your half way to the weekend.  Today at Catch the Bug Challenge is so fun, this week they have a theme of Christmas in July and it has been so fun, so much going on over there so please pop over and play along or share the love.  
My card is hilarious in my mind.  I could just see her asking Santa to pimp my ride.  I used some spellbinders, and some twine and pearls, I colored Stella using Copic markers.
Have a great day, and Happy Crafting!
