KCC #459 {Camp Out}


Happy 'Krafty Chicks' Thursday everyone! Today, miss Tangii is up on the blog sharing the twist to our Anything Goes challenge. 

KCC #459 {Camp Out}

I know you must be thinking "there's nothing about camping on this card" but the scene is totally part of camping out to me...I can totally vision myself pitching a tent (or parking my holiday trailer LOL) on the shore looking out to this gorgeous scenery. Can't YOU?!? Oh I would love to be sitting out on the dock with a delicious, strong cup of coffee and crocheting to my hearts content, listening to the calming sounds of nature...ahhhhhh....

I came across this video tutorial from Simply Sara Stampin'  and I even had all the stamps from Fun Stampers Journey to make the exact card! I was very inky by the time I was done but it was so worth it!

Here's a close up of my card:

KCC #458 {Die Cuts}

Welcome back to another "Krafty Chicks" challenge. This week, it is miss Amy's turn to throw out the "twist" for this week's Anything Goes challenge! 

KC #458 {DIE CUTS}

** Remember, our challenges are always Anything Goes with the optional "twist" thrown in each week. You do not have to use the twist, but we would sure love it if you did! :)

I always love to see what I can use for dies before I do any sort of stamping. It's a very quick way to complete a card if you can use mostly dies...and I like that! While I still do enjoy stamping/coloring etc., when time is of the essence, die cuts are awesome! 


Please be sure to check out what my other fellow Chicks have created for you using Amy's challenge:


We would love if you would come on over and play along with us this week - remember, it's an Anything Goes challenge with the optional "twist!"

KCC #457 {COFFEE}

This was a very quick and easy card this week as I let the designer paper do all the fun work! The pack is from Doodlebug and it's chalk-full of super cute coffee/sweets images to create with.

Coffee with a Friend


Hello, hello crafty friends! It is a long weekend here in Canada, so I have the day off work and it's going to be a busy one - I will be food prepping today and getting my laundry caught up as I have been planting the garden, shopping for flowers and mowing the grass this past weekend! The winds have been chilly but it's better than the white stuff!! :)

I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog and I am here to share this beauty with you all today:


Now, I wish I could take credit for this one, but alas, I cannot. This gorgeous card was made by my best friend, Leanne and it's one of my favorite craft room decorations - I HAD to share it with you all. It was made with the Heartfelt Creations paper pack and lots of pretty flowers.

 

Isn't it just the prettiest thing EVER?!? Thanks so much friend - I display it proudly in my craft room and I admire it daily! I hope you all have a fantastic Monday and have a chance to get crafty! CHEERS everyone!

Coffee & Friends Make the Perfect Blend...

 

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are all doing well :) We ending up with a winter storm coming through on Friday/Saturday and leaving us with a very white, cold ground again...Spring is just not wanting to come hahah! On a happier note, income tax time is almost over for me - 2 more days!! Yipeee!! Then, life can go back to a semi-normal routine with 2+ days off a week again...*crafty time!* whoot! whoot! 

I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog with this super sweet card made from a coffee card kit from Simon Says Stamp! I have had this kit for some time and finally got around to creating the cards before tax season hit ... I knew life would be super crazy busy, so I wanted a few quick and fun cards made up ahead of time - this is one of them:


Isn't it sweet?!? The stamp set came with various faces you could put on the cups and that font is just so awesome - all the papers that go with the kit are so cute and chalk full of coffee goodness!

 

Thanks for stopping in to see what I have been up to - I'm off to brew a coffee and get myself ready for work! Have a wonderful Monday....cheers!
