Something Old, Something New

 Thanks for stopping to see what I am creating for our challenge this week at 4 Crafty Chicks, our Chick Lori's turn to host the challenge.  She has asked us to use "Something Old, Something New" on our projects.  I had so many ideas, but came up with this card.  Hope you like it, and take time to share your ideas/creations with the chicks.  They like hearing from  you too.  So pop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks.
My card first of all is new, but that isn't what I am getting at, haha!  My Old is the Stampin Up die I used for the image.  The new is my stamp from Heartfelt Creations.  I used another Spellbinder lattice on my card.  Used the Prima's Stationer's Desk Pattern Paper, added a ribbon/bow, some flowers, and popped my image up using 3D foam dots.  Inked the edges of the paper/image with distress ink - walnut.  Oh and the pin I just made is new too.  Colored the image using my copic markers.  I do hope you get into your craft room and create with us at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Till next time have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday

 Hello friends, our challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks today is brought to you by our good friend Tamie and she has asked us to create something "Masculine"  She sure knows how to make me work that girl.  I have troubles with man cards, as I don't get to add flowers....hahaha but I did get to add ribbon with little balls on them.  Not sure what they really are called.  I have a name for them, but better not put that on here. Wink, wink!  My card today, is for my brother-in-law's birthday, he is a golfer guy, and I thought it was pretty funny.
 The bugaboo image still makes me laugh every time I see it.  I colored my image using copic makers.  Added some glossy accents to his glasses.  I used the dogglebug design inc. pattern paper.  Added some dots on the bottom corner, and popped up the happy birthday with some 3D-foam dots.
Thanks again friends, for stopping and play along with the chicks challenge, Tamie has sure brought her A-game with this challenge.  
Till next time, enjoy that crafting!

Birthday Wish

Hey friends another fantastic Inspiration for you today, my card is for the Inspirational projects we, the design team have going on this month at One Crazy Stamper.  Lots of wonderful projects to share with you this month.  I have been showing casing the great Penny Black stamps.  
This one was so fun, and is called Good Day.  I am using the paper pack from Bazzill called The Adventures.  So bright and fun to create with. I have decided this one was for a male, and I wouldn't put any flowers on it, or pretty it up too much.  But I did add the sentiment and popped up the image too.  I colored my image using Copic Markers.  
I hope you get a chance to check out the design teams inspirations this month.  Again thanks for stopping by.  Till next time happy crafting!

Life is good

 Life is good....what a great saying.  After watching the news and seeing the sadness out there, makes my life really good.  I appreciate and am so grateful.  Just taking a moment and reflecting on how good it is.  My card today for our challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks is to use pins, some call them pushpins, or hat pins.  Whichever you call them, that is what I would like to see on your project.  I love them, it adds another great element to your card/project.  I make mine, I did buy some once, but thought, heck it would be super awesome if I could make these. They are so easy to create, and fun to make too. So this is what I have come up with.
#206 Pins 4 Crafty Chicks
 My card today, I used my new Spellbinder that I purchased with my friends, Tamie/Bonnie on a craft shopping trip in June.  So much fun, trying to figure out which one I like more.  I do not have borders so this was so much fun.  I used my new stamps/die from Heartfelt Creations.  Oh the flowers were so much fun to make.  And we all know I do like my flowers.  The paper is from Heartfelt Creations also.  I added a bow, I used seam binding for that, and some glues, used the sentiment that comes with the paper pack, and I hope you like what I created.
 Thanks again and I hope you go over to 4 Crafty Chicks and play my challenge this week.  The chicks sure have outdid themselves yet again.  Till next time happy crafting!
