Christmas in July

Happy, Happy Thursday morning to you!  I am enjoying time with my family and it sure feels nice.

We are on Challenge #47 over at Creative Knockouts and we would just love, love, love to see some rockin Christmas in July creations.  Our fabulous sponsor this week is Dilly Beans Stamps and they provided me with this image to use Three Penguins.

My creation is just another clean and simple one as my hubby surprised me with a holiday and we like had to leave the next day.  So I knew just what to do for this Christmas card.  Super excited to have created my second Christmas card so far.  I am ahead of the game :)

Please hop on over to Creative Knockouts and show us what Christmas in July inspires in you!!

Hugs to you all :)


Let us be Grateful...

Good Morning! I am excited to share my newest 4 Crafty Chicks DT creation with you.  Our hostess for Challenge #204 is Lori.  She would like us to use this inspiration picture to create from.

Here is my creation.  I used the green, brown and for the blue I chose pool party.  It is a clean and simple design with a stampin up stamp and some added texture!
Be sure to check out my fellow chicks creations.  We would love to have you join us at 4 Crafty Chicks this week.

Have an amazing week and remember to smile.

Camping Is Intents!!

Good, Good Morning! This week has been smokin' hot so we have enjoyed going to the swimming pool. My craft room is crazy hot with no curtains or blinds up.  Hoping we find some soon, on the bright side I guess we have our own personal sauna.  The smoke from all the forest fires has made breathing harder and my allergies are sure flaring up. My thoughts are with everyone who lives around the fires.

It is my turn to be the hostess at 4 Crafty Chicks.  I think we have a super fun challenge this week. For CHALLENGE #203 I would love to see something about the Great Outdoors.

Loving this image from Lacy Sunshine, thought it was perfect for anyone who loves camping and play in the Great Outdoors.  I used Copics to color the image, spellbinders and 5 different Stampin Up punches.  I had fun playing with the twine too. What would you do if you work up and found this when you were tenting?

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown - #204 - Take Us On Vacation (Camping)
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog - Challenge #186 - Anything Goes
The ABC Challenge - P is for Pearls

We are very excited to see what creations you come up with this week.  Please hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks to be inspired by with more fabby creations and to enter yours.

Have an amazing week! A huge smile is coming your way.

That's A Smore Eh!

Whaooo! We are into our second week of holidays and so far we have survived my oldest sons wisdom teeth removal, physiotherapy, doctors appointments and of course the beautiful hot weather.  I am still dreaming of having everyone sleep in for at least one day during this summer :).

I am giddy with excitement to show you my new DT card for Creative Knockouts.  Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Lacy Sunshine and she has graciously let me create with the Eleanor and Pickles Smores digi image.  We are on Challenge # 45 and we are asking you to SEW IT UP - REAL OR FAUX

I picked this image because this is one thing I just love doing with my kids each summer.  Sadly we won't be able to go camping this year because of my accident but I did try to get the camping feeling on this card.  We love to I decided that this card required some real stitching.  First thing was to find my Framelits and was very excited to use my Festive Paper Piercing mats.  It is my first time using them and thought it would be the perfect thing to help me hand sew on this card. Then out came the embroidery floss and my cross stitch needle. Both layers were sewed by hand and two different styles.

Lacy Sunshine
Stamp: Lacy Sunshine - Eleanor and Pickle Smores
Paper: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Acorn Hollow 6x6 pad.
Accessories: Stampin Up framelit and festive paper piecing mat, Fancy Tags 1, copic markers, chocolate and yellow pearls, floss and needle.

I would love to enter my card into the following Challenges:
Stampin' Royalty - Challenge #236 - Anything Goes
Crafting By Designs - Use Dies Challenge
Twisted Tuesday - Challenge #80 - Challenge - Include Pearls on your Creation Twist Lots of Layers
Fan-Tastic Tuesdays - Challenge #43 - Anything Goes

It would be great to see you at Creative Knockouts this week. For more incredible inspiration please hop on over and see my fellow DT's creations. I would love to see how you sewed on your project be it real or faux.

Have a spectacular day! May it be one filled with tons of laughter. 

Thanks for sharing it with me!! Hugs

Inspired By A Song

Good Morning! We have had a very hot week so far and last night ended up with two storms passing threw.  Lots of thunder and lightening but it has cooled things down a bit. One of my highlights this last week was going to the brand new swimming pool in Wetaskiwin with my husband and daughter.  I must say it was extremely weird not being able to just swim but they were awesome with me and helped me out lots. It has been just about 9 months since I have been in the pool and boy have I sure missed the water. Now onto why you are here...

We are on CHALLENGE #202 at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Our wonderful hostess this week is our fabulous chick Tina.  She would like us to create something "INSPIRED BY A SONG".  There are so many good songs out there and if anything my trouble was narrowing them down to just one.
"I Knew The Bride When She Used To Rock And Roll" 
I love this song! My girlfriends had this played at my wedding and we all danced to it. It was so awesome, a wonderful memory and an very fun party.  The digi is from Kenny K called the Wedding Dance. These digi's are so much fun to color up.  This particular card was made when my fellow Chick Leanne came for a visit, where we got some crafting time on. Don't faint but yes you are seeing flowers for the second time is as many weeks *wink*.  The image has been colored with copic markers. You can't tell by the picture but the dress is shiny from a clear glitter pen.
I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafting With Dragonflies - Challenge #30 - Clean and Simple (CAS)
Crafty Creations Challenges - Challenge #267 - Let's Party
Creative Moments - Challenge #46 - Anything Goes/Celebration (Wedding Dance)

We would love to have you pop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks...I personally can't wait to see what song inspires you.  Our guest designer and my fellow chicks have rockin inspiration for you too.

Wishing you a fabulous week! Thanks for sharing my new DT card with me.

My Take On a Nautical Theme

Sorry for the lateness of my post for 4 Crafty Chicks.  I was having computer difficulties tonight and well my darling hubby got back really late and well my knight in shining armor finally got it fixed. Thank you to the chicks for your patience.

Our wonderful hostess with the mostess this week is Leanne! She is asking us to create using a NAUTICAL THEME for Challenge #201.  I would also like to welcome our July Guest Designer Calypso and she will dazzle you with her inspiration.

My card is below and I decided to use Navy and White.  It is clean and simple but reminds me of the sail boats and lighthouses out at Prince Edward Island. It is truly a gorgeous part of Canada.
Items Used:
Winds of Grace Stamps
Night of Navy, Whisper White
Memento Tuxedo Black,

I sure do hope you have time to pop on by and join us this week for our Nautical Theme Challenge.  It will be so exciting to see your creations.  If you are looking for more inspiration then don't hesitate to hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks because Calypso, Tina, Leanne have out done themselves.

Have an amazing day!!

I am very excited to use the following image DOODLED FLORAL 1 from our sponsors.  Thank you :)  My image is below and has been kept in a monochromatic white except for the image. It was my idea to keep the focus on the beautiful flowers but to give some dimension with the layers and embossing folder. The image was colored by Copics.
