Rayne - Rain Catcher

Hello and welcome back to my blog! I have a new DT creation for you.  This one is for Creative Knockout where our #135 Challenge is Outside Fun.  Our sponsor for this week is Lacy Sunshine (3 Digi's) and I would like to thank her for letting me use Rayne - Rain Catcher.  She was so much fun to color and find a layout for.

It is hard to see on my card but I did use a paisley embossing folder on the brown paper.  Wish that and the Wink of Stella showed up better for you.

My fellow DT's have amazing creation to share with you and personally I would love to check out your creations. Please joining us at Creative Knockouts

Thank you for stopping by and for your comments.

Book mark chomper

Hi! Welcome to my blog! As I am typing up this post the wind is blowing crazy here, no rain just windy. It has been a fun week for me having family here and just spending time with them. Alas tomorrow our son has to go back to work.

It is time for a new challenge this week over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Our wonderful hostess Leanne is doing out Crazy Egg post.  When we have 5 Thursday's in a month it is an easy peazy challenge of ANYTHING GOES.

I have been seeing these super cute book marks all over pinterest and well I made several different types with different folds.  This one I am sharing with you I made for my daughter and her new book. It is awesome because it sits over the corner of the page.
I do believe making more of these is in order.

Please come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks for inspiration and we would love to see what inspires you this week. 

Thanks for joining me.

Less is More

Spring is here and even though we have snow, I am so very grateful for my family, my friends, my new home.  This weekend I celebrate Easter with God and my family, hopefully the weather holds so they can come.  Wishing you all an amazing Easter.

I am so excited to share my latest DT creation with you.  Over at 4 Crafty Chicks our beautiful hostess is Lori and she has gave us a challenge to be simple.  For Challenge #291 - Less is More.  My card above has a frame of scored lines around it although I couldn't get a good picture for you to see them all.  I decided to go with Garden Silhouettes from Stampin Up and the sentiment from Forever in Our Hearts Verve.  

We would love to see your dressed down creations at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Wishing you all an amazing weekend.

Thanks for sharing in my latest DTproject.

The Season of Friendship!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I am sure here in Canada everyone is itching to have spring arrive but honestly we haven't had that bad of a Winter.  Pretty mild here in Alberta.  I do look forward to no ice on the side walk and roads.  On Tuesday, I was very lucky to have heard geese fly over our new home.  Every year I look forward to hearing the sounds of the geese flying overhead. Then spring is near.

We have a brand new challenge for you over at Creative Knockouts.  Our sponsor this week is Di's Digi Stamps and the prize is $12 voucher. For Challenge #133 - Spring is On The Way!! At this time of year with taxes being due here in Canada it sure does feel nice to think about spring and all the fun it leads too. Like planting a garden if you have one, flowers, walks, budding tree's.  A renewal of the bright and beautiful colors outside.

My card up above images and stamps are from Season of Friendship from Stampin Up. It is a clean and simple design.  All inks are also from Stampin Up.

Come on over and join us at Creative Knockouts.  Looking for more inspiration my fellow DT's have amazing creations to share with you.

I would like to enter my card into the One Crazy Stampers March - Anything Goes Challenge.

Have an amazing day!!

Happy Birthday from the....

Good morning and Happy St. Patrick's Day! We went from having no snow to having a yard full of snow and the grass is again covered.  Just like that +18 one day and snow/windy the next.  Gotta love Alberta.  Now I know that the their was going to be more snow for us but I did rather enjoy seeing the grass and hearing the geese for the first time on Tuesday.

So the card above is for the brand new challenge this week over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  I am the hostess and for challenge #290 (can you believe it :)) I would love to see you make something that is full of Humor.  I have had this stamped image for a while and never got around to using it.  The sentiment makes me laugh every time I see it.

The image above was colored with copic's, embossing folder and oval stitch dies were used too.

Please come join us at 4 Crafty Chicks for a fun filled challenge.  We all need a giggle sometime right?

Adversity doesn't.....

Hello, Hello! Well last week I was dreading having to give up an hour of sleep everyday but the good news that isn't until this weekend.  Yahooo! A girl can dream a few more days for an extra hour.

Above is my lastest DT creation for 4 Crafty Chicks.  Our wonderful hostess this week is Tina. She has a very exciting challenge for us this week.  We are on Challenge #289 7 Layers. I thought that this would be really hard but it actually turned out to be easy.  Now I have 7 layers of paper or you can go 6 layers of paper and the 7th layer is my pearls.  The stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms - Encouragement Expressesions.  The paper is all from Stampin Up (Whisper White, Early Espresso, Cherry on Top), punches and I used a spellbinder circle die for the large circle.

My fellow chicks and Nance our GDT have some phenomenal inspiration for you. Please hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks to see their work and join us.

Thank you for joining me for my latest creation.

Little bunny cotton tail

Can we possibly be in the month of Easter already?  Well folks I am told this is absolutely not only possible we are. Whew spring is coming folks. For those of us who change our clocks ahead, well that is happening this weekend. I will have to get used to 1 less hour of sleep.  Some of my friends it never ever bothers them but me you have to pry me out of bed... hee hee.
