4 CC #352 {Father's Day!}


Happy "4 Crafty Chicks" Thursday everyone! 

This week, it is my turn to play challenge hostess and I am looking for projects celebrating that special guy in your life for FATHER'S DAY...

4 CC #352 {FATHER'S DAY}


My card was part of an unfinished card kit I had kicking around and I'm really sorry but I can't even tell you the brand/company it was from as it was in a clear bag with no instructions - just the pieces I had left over and I created this one with those. The tie and heart are chip board and I got out my sponge dauber and did a bit of inking to distress the edges a bit. I love these colors!

Here is the full card again:


Be sure to hop on over to the Hen House to see what the rest of the Chicks have in store for you - all I can say is that they have created some pretty UH-MAY-ZING cards!! Cheers!

You are a-MAIZE-ing!!


Happy Sunday everyone! 

It is a long weekend here in Alberta, CANADA so I have been outside as much as I can enjoying the gorgeous sunshine and warmer temperatures! The garden is almost all in, the grass is cut and I am now decorating the yard with pretty flower pots and decorations :) 

There is a new release happening at Craftin' Desert Divas on May 26th and 27th and oh-my-goodness, you DO NOT want to miss out on this one! There are 6 new stamps, dies and digi's that will be released. The dies and stamps are so fun and create the most amazing scenes - isn't he adorable?? I am here to give you a sneaky-peek of what's coming:


This is the super cute digi stamp called "Gopher Eating Corn" and he's a part of the digi bundle called "A-maize-ing." There is a black/white image, colored image and a sentiment! So fun!!


For my card, I wanted to create a cute scene of him in the garden enjoying his corn...now, if this were to be happening in real life in MY garden, I'd be furious...however, he's so stinkin' cute! 

I printed the gopher and sentiment out and colored him up with my Copic Markers then fussy cut him to fit among the dirt mounds. "Garden Border Die Set" is the name of this amazing die set and it's awesome - SO MANY different components in it to create some amazing scenes:

Merry Monday #248 {Color Challenge!}



This week, our challenge is being brought to you by Marcia:


This challenge was great! It totally made me step out of my comfort zone as I was having a real struggle adding the green in there LOL.... thanks, Marcia!


I just received this sunburst die from Stampin' Up! and I have been itching to use it - and figured this was as good a time as any ;) I added the snowflake from Paper Smooches and popped up that layer to give it some dimension then die cut the Happy Holidays from Eggplant with my Neat and Tangles die. 


It's hard to see in the photo (sorry) but the white base is layered on green, then on the purple :)
