Toolshed Ted

Good morning to you! The weather has been crazy this week and at times, I think that my house might have flown across the country it has been so strong.

Happy new challenge Thursday over at Creative Knockouts. Our challenge is For The Boys. I would love to thank our sponsor from Dr. Digi House of Stamps for letting me high lite Toolshed Ted. 

My card above was made for my dad for Father's Day. He loves working in his garden and growing the biggest veggies possible. The image just made me giggle and thought it was perfect for him. I used My Favorite Things stitched rectangle dies, Verve Stamp, Stampin' Up pattern/paper stock, paper piercing tool, and Copic Markers.

Come on over and join us this week at Creative Knockouts.

Thanks for joining me today!

Have an amazing day :)

Sunflowers


Good morning! I do believe that Thursday should be marked as happy dancing day! What also makes today a great day is we have another challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and Lori is our hostess. Her wonderful challenge is for us to create using Sunflowers. I love all of the different kinds of sunflowers, the colors are so rich and just bring such joy.

My card above is colored with Copic Markers. The Thinking of You stamp is from your Next Stamp, the digi image is from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps, the circle dies are from Spellbinders, the paper and punch are from Stampin Up, and the embossing folder is from cuttle bug.

Come and join us for this wonderful challenge. The girls have amazing inspiration for you.

Enjoy your day!

With Sympathy!


It is a pleasure to share a brand new card with you. Nance is our hostess at 4 Crafty Chicks for Challenge #354. Nance would like us to use a Triple Mat Technique to make a With Sympathy Card.

I am trying this technique for the first time so what a great challenge. It took me a bit to find what stamp to use to make it. It is amazing to see so many stunning cards using this technique. I am very sorry about my picture it is blurry once again. Another tutorial, I will have to find (hee hee). It has been a long time since I have actually stamped without my Misti, that it took several practices to get something decent. 

My card was made using Stampin' Up punches, Sweetbriar Rose and Teeny Tiny Wishes. The image was colored using Copic Markers. The paper is also from Stampin' Up.

Please join us for this fun-filled challenge. Looking for more inspiration my fellow chicks, have stunning creations.

Thank you!

Happy Father's Day



Good morning! I have to say yesterday was a wet, windy, crazy day of driving for appointments.  The best part of it was getting to see our grandson, kids, and mom/dad. It was a quick visit but any amount of snuggle time is great. Today is full of appointments too and this weekend will be busy with company.

We are on the last Thursday of May at 4 Crafty Chicks and our wonderful hostess is Lori. Lori would like us to make a FATHER'S DAY creation for Challenge #352.

The card above has been made with Stampin Up papers and embossing folder. The image is colored with Copic Markers and highlight an Unbranded die. The white scalloped edges is a Gina Marie die, the rectangle is MFT and the Happy Father's Day is an Unbranded Die.

Craft On!

Hello, friends! I must apologize for my late post for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends. It was a crazy busy week and with two days of musicals with our daughter and then a weekend end of Provincial Handball, I forgot to schedule my post and left it in draft form (thought I was all organized) Both musical days were very successful and the girls finished 7th place in the Province. A successful week/weekend it has been. Any time now we will also have our first grandchild. Must say it is sooooo very exciting. Okay, let's get to the fun stuff.

I would like to say thanks to Denise for being a wonderful blog owner and challenge hostess each week. I look forward to seeing her creations but she has passed the baton of the blog ownership to Lynn aka Lynnpenguin for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.
