All That Glitters

Welcome back once again!

It's Thursday and we are already almost done with July!  Where is the summer going?  Only a few more weeks until the wedding! I still have so much to do!

This week over at 4 Crafty Chicks Tamie is our beautiful hostess.  She gave us the following theme:

ALL THAT GLITTERS


(sorry for the horrible photo)
I created this card using black ink and then embossing it with a glue pen and glitter.  Its really hard to see but "Life and Smile" are both covered in a blue glitter.

Flowers

Good morning!  This week I get to play hostess over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  I decided on the following theme:

FLOWERS

Pretty Easy right?!


During Mother's Day my church holds a wonderful dinner to honor all of the mothers in our church.  One woman is selected to be Mother Of The Year.  This year I received that honor!  I was so surprised!  What surprised me even more was my beautiful daughter being able to come home!  I had no idea she was going to be there and when they announced my name and I stood up there she was!  What a wonderful surprise!  
At the dinner letters were read from my husband, son and Mother in law and my daughter read a beautiful letter from herself.  I made this box to hold all of those wonderful memories.  I used a wooden cigar box and covered it in card stock then decorated it with flowers and frames with photos of my children.  I feel so blessed to have such great kids!

So, show us your flowers over at 4 Crafty Chicks this week!  I can't wait to see what you do!

See yo soon!

Summer!

Good morning!  We have sure had a lot of heat lately!  But it is perfect for this weeks challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks!  Leanne is our hostess and she chose the following theme:

SUMMER


I just love this image - maybe because it is called "Lacie's Icecream" and that is my daughter's name!   But it looks like she is enjoying a summer treat and even has her shades ready for the sun!


So, if you would like to play along head over to 4 Crafty Chicks and enter your "Summer" card today!

Also, be sure to welcome this months guest designer - Pat!  I can't wait to see all of your wonderful creations!

Anything Goes

Good morning!  Welcome back again this week! 
This week over at 4 Crafty Chicks I get to play hostess!  Since it is our 5th Thursday of the month our theme is always ANYTHING GOES!

This is also the last week for our wonderful guest designer - Melanie.  It was so fun to create with you this month!  I hope to see you around lots more!!!

OK, so on to my project for the week.

Well, I have been keeping a secret from all of you!  My beautiful daughter is getting married! 
 I have been so busy  working on centerpeices for her wedding reception - I didn't think I had anything done for this weeks challenge - so I thought I would share what they are looking like:


Her colors are Navy, Coral and Gold.  She is wanting to keep everything as simple as possible - but even a simple mason jar looks pretty awesome when spray painted gold!  I am really enjoying getting everything ready for her special day! (I am working on invitations and will share them soon!)

So, head over to 4 Crafty Chicks and enter your ANYTHING GOES project today!  While you are there be sure to leave some love for the other chicks and there wonderful projects!

See you soon!

#303- Metal


Good morning!  Welcome back to another episode of my blog!  Today is Thursday so you know what that means?  Yep- a new challenge awaits at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Tamie is our hostess over there this week and she gave us the following challenge:

METAL

At first I thought - will what in the world am I going to do!  Then, a friend of mine needed a gift for a 100th birthday.
Here is what I came up with:


I loved the gears and time pieces added to the canvas.  It just gave it that little something.  And when I was done I was like- wait you can't have it!  I need a photo for my blog!!!

So, I hope inspiration strikes and you come up with a card or project for Tamie's METAL challenge!

#301 Masculine

Good morning!  Today we have a new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks!  
Leanne is our hostess this week AND we have a new Guest Designer!
Welcome MELANIE!
We look forward to creating with you this month!

Leanne thought we needed to fill our card stash with some Masculine cards so this weeks challenge is

#301 {MASCULINE}


My boss is an avid Duck hunter so I made this one for him for his birthday.  I really struggle with masculine cards and have to always remind myself that sometimes less is more!  The image is from one of my new favorite stamp companies - Northwoods Rubber Stamps.  I colored them with watercolor markers and even though it doesn't show in the picture - I added some glitter here and there.

So, head on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and enter your Masculine card today!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

See you soon!

#300 Shaker Card

Good morning!  Welcome back again this week!
This week over at 4 Crafty Chicks, Lori is our very talented hostess!  She has asked that we use the following theme:

SHAKER CARDS!

Now, let me tell you! I have never done one of these so it was really a challenge!
I went to a Scrapbook convention a few weeks ago and found what I thought would be these neat set all ready to put together.  Boy, they were hard!!!


Nothing lined up on them and the beads just wanted to stick to the backing! 
Next time I try one of these I will do it on my own!  

Anyway, stop over to 4 Crafty Chicks and check out the other Chicks cards!  They are AWESOME!

See you soon!
