I Appreciate You

Welcome back and thanks for coming and checking on what I am creating today.  The challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks is Anything Goes.
I used this wonderful paper pack from Heartfelt Creations called Countryside Evening Collection.  The sentiment stamp is from the Heartfelt Creations called Antique Lantern Pre-Cut Collection.  I used Spellbinders and Cheery Lynn Dies, added some flowers, and some bling.  Inked up my edges with Walnut Stain and used Wink of Stella pen for some added glitter on the word thanks.

Happy Birthday Bridge

Welcome back friends, wow almost the end of July crazy how this summer is flying by.  I do hope you are enjoy your time with family friends.  The weather has been much nicer to us this month and we sure appreciate it.  As our Winter was so very long, and the spring wasn't that great.  But on the bright side it is a wonderful day today, and that is all that counts.
My card today is the last one for July's Inspiration at One Crazy Stamper, I am showcasing another way you can use your dies.  If you remember the first post this month I used the bridge die and sparkle and now today, using it again.  This time I added some versa mark and some white embossing powder, you can't really see it in the photos, but it is there, and then adding some flowers and more dies from spellbinders to finish my card off.  I like how you can make these dies all work together and in array of ways.  So pop on over to Lora's store she has this Memory Box bridge die, and tons of others.  I do hope you get a chance to take in all the Inspirational project the design team has showcased for you this month, share the love, as we really appreciate a comment or two. Till next time I hope you get crafty!

Friends are Forever

Hello friends, I haven't done this very often showing you another persons card, but again, it is just such a beautiful card and she is such a great friend, crafter and person I just had to share it.  She doesn't have a blog, which she really does need one, so she could share her wonderful creations with everyone.
I love how she added the bling (peals and rhinestones) together around the oval.  The ribbon is so perfect her little bows are amazing.  The words "friends are forever" are raised up a bit, you can't see this very good in my photo but trust me they are.  The color and the sentiment is wonderful.  I feel very blessed to have this lady in my life and truly giddy receiving this card in the mail.  Nothing feels better than getting fun mail.  If you can comment at the bottom, she will see this, or I'll send it to her.  Thanks again for stopping to see what I have going on.  Hope you get into your craft room, and get creative too!

Get The Party Started

Glad you stopped back, I have another fun card to share with you.  Our challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks is brought to you by our chick Tina, and she has challenged us to create a project that is inspired by a song.  I know, I could go ol' sappy or like a love song.
 Supplies-Copic Markers, KennyK Rubber Stamp, Song Sheet Paper, Computer for Sentiment, Rhinestones, spellbinders, 3D foam tape, Glue dots, Xpressit Copic Blending Cardstock.
But a few months back, when I was thinking about what to create with my KennyK image, which mine is rubber, but not sure where to link it to now, so will link to the digital site.  I was talking with my good friend Tamie and she said hey maybe a "PINK" song.  So off I go in search of a song that would work.  Well it didn't take me long to pick the song "Get The Party Started".  I hope you get a chance to be inspired and play along with the design team at 4 Crafty Chicks, they sure have wowed me.  Thanks again for checking on my creation.  Till next time, I hope you get your craft groove on.

Happy Birthday Cone

Hello Monday friends, and I have another inspirational card to share with you.  This one is very special for me.  As I was lucky to have a young girl craft with me, she is only 12, and I think she will be coloring beyond me soon, if not already.  I said I would make the card, if she colored and so we crafted this one together.  Thank you very much girlie, and anytime you want to craft again with me, I would be honored.
The stamp I am show casing today for our Inspirational month at One Crazy Stamper is called Birthday cone from Stampendous.  So awesome, and I added some ribbon/flowers a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps called-Simple Sentiments. I also used Spellbinders and some 3D Foam tape to pop this wonderful cute image up. Added some Wink of Stella clear over the candles and the ice cream for sparkle oh and on the hats too. I do hope you get a chance to pop over to One Crazy Stamper to get inspired by our fantabulouso design team, and get crafty too, maybe with a friend or alone.  There is always a good time to get your creative juices flowing.  Till next time happy crafting, and for some much needed retail therapy pop over to Lora's store, and get shopping.  Cheers!

Happy Birthday

Thanks friends for stopping to see what I am creating and show casing for One Crazy Stamper.  There won't be a challenge this month, we are going to have a "Creative Inspiration" month.  Which we are going to share cards/projects and we hope they give you inspiration to create.  We will be showcasing a various items, from stamps to dies to embossing folders etc.
Today the die from Memory Box dies is what I am show casing.  I cut the bridge die out of black cardstock and I added some glitter ritz to it, adhered just slightly off to one side onto another black cards stock.  To have a shadow effect to the bridge.
I used spellbinders, flowers, and some very fun ribbon to go along with my card.  I also used distressing ink for around the bridge.  I used a sentiment from Stampendous, and it finishes my card off.  Thanks again for stopping and please pop on over to Lora's store for some retail therapy and pop on over to One Crazy Stamper and check out what the team is show casing this month.  I hope I inspired you to get crafty.  Till next time happy crafting.
