Krafty Chicks Challenge #557 Anything Goes

 Good Morning!  

It's Krafty Chicks Thursday!

I am getting my 2nd vaccine today.  Woohoo! It will feel so good to be able to get out a little more, masked and social distancing, of course, but I have only been inside a store about 6 times in the last 13 months! It will also be nice to see some other family and friends too! 

 Well, on with the actual priority now.  It's the 5th Thursday (and last) of April.  WOW,  May is almost here!  Since it is the 5th Thursday, it's our Anything Goes Challenge.  

Krafty Chicks Challenge #557 - ANYTHING GOES

Stop by the Hen House and see my fellow Chickies' projects and also give our Guest Designer, Melanie, a warm goodbye as this is her last week with us.  Then come join us and make whatever your heart/soul desires and share it with us.

Krafty Chick Blessings!

Rise and Shine!

Good Morning, again!

I have another card to share for the AAA Card Challenge this week.

I used one of the new stamp sets by Catherine Pooler Designs, "Rise and Shine".  Lots of adorable stamps that fit into an inch strip!  Who knew? (Except maybe Catherine)! LOL

Krafty Chicks Challenge #556 - All Occasions


I made this birthday card for my older brother's birthday.  He has two Chihuahuas, Milly and Abby and he is an alum and big fan of Marshall University so I had to use all green.   Everything is Catherine Pooler Designs except the chat bubble, which is My Favorite Things.

Make sure to check out the rest of the Chicks' projects at the Hen House!  Then come join us for our All Occasions challenge, which runs through Wed., April 28th.

Happy Day!

Hello there!

A post for today, maybe not the last one for the day.  We shall see.  Sharing a card I made for our youngest son's birthday which was April 13th.  27!  He's 27! That's hard to fathom for me.  I explicably remember his arrival into this world as if it were yesterday!

I took a watercolored background from my stash that I thought resembled some mountains and a sun, added the tree frame die cut from woodgrain stamped cardstock, added three different colored die cut foxes (Ben loves foxes) and the sentiment.  Done for a nice masculine birthday card.

Krafty Chicks Challenge #554 - Christmas

 Good Morning!

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at Krafy Chicks Challenge. I'm hosting this week, our Christmas week!

Krafty Chicks Challenge #554 - Christmas

I created some of this card a while back and just never finished it so I finished it for this week's challenge.  The stamped image is by Power Poppy.  I stamped it in Versamark and embossed in silver embossing powder.  Then I colored it  with Zig water pens.  The background was stamped on red cardstock with Rockin' Red ink by Catherine pooler with a background stamp by My Favorite Things.  The sentiment is also Power Poppy.

Krafty Chicks Challenge #553 - Stamp Act

Good Morning!

Hope you're having a wonderful Holy week if you celebrate Passover or Easter.  And Happy April!

Since today is Thursday, it's time for a new challenge at Krafty Chicks Chalelnge.  Leanne is our hostess for our Stamping challenge.

Krafty Chicks Challenge #553 - Stamp Act

(must have stamping)

This card has lots of stamping on it.  I used a gel press to create the background first.  The technique I did you can find on Jennifer McGuire's blog. I printed the heart image on it using WOW embossing ink and white emboss powder.  I stamped the linen pattern on top of the heart and wiped the excess off of the embossed sections.  The flowers were stamped and die cut and placed onto the panel along with the stamped die cut word Amazing die and sentiment strip. 

Be sure and go to the Hen House and see the rest of the team's projects and welcome our April guest, Melanie. Come play along with us in our stamping challenge.

Creative Blessings!
