4 CCC#122 {Color Challenge}

Good  morning crafty PEEPS! I sure hope you had an enjoyable, relaxing Christmas with family and friends - filled up with scrumptious food, goodies and drink and now are gearing up for a wonderful New Year's celebration. I would love to say the same about our house, but unfortunately, we have been in renovation/repair mode since my DH got home last Friday. We had a shower leaking, a sewer gas leak in the basement bathroom, my kitchen sink blew a pipe last night, and a bunch of other things that are taking our holiday time away from us LOL...OY!

It will all get done, I'm sure, and we can relax soon! Would you like to see the last challenge of 2012 - for your crafting pleasure? It's a color challenge, brought to you by ME! Hope you enjoy it!


This is my card using the color combo and some of my favorite MFT products:
It's also prize week and miss Tamie has offered up the following package of crafty awesomeness for one lucky participant:

Thank you to each and every player, guest designer, visitor and commenter who have helped make 2012 an amazing year for all us CHICKS! Can't wait to see what 2013 brings us! CHEERS!!!

4 CCC#121 - Patterned Paper

Happy Thursday folks! Welcome to another challenge from 4 Crafty Chicks! I am fighting that gawd-awful flu/cold sickness that is going around, so I apologize for my post not being live before now. I was in bed at 8:30 last night and went right back to bed after getting my kids off to school :( I am hoping this bug is short-lived and quick to vacate our home before Christmas!!

For the challenge this week, we wanna see your own creations of handmade patterned paper....that can be stamped, embossed, inked, smeared etc. - so many different techniques to use out there - let's see 'em! For my card, I stamped the background white panel with funky snowflakes...
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and all the best to you and your families in 2013! Please enjoy this season holding your loved ones close and spending time with friends and family. See you next week :)

4 CCC# 120 - You're Invited!

Welcome back to another 4 Crafty Chicks challenge! I am SO SORRY that this post didn't go live Thursday morning, but Leanne just mentioned it to me that my blog didn't post. I came and checkedi t out and Blogger had it set as a draft, and I had scheduled all  my posts before the move so that I wouldn't have to worry about this sort of trouble! ARG!!!!

This week challenged me somewhat when I sat down and tried to come up with an "invitation." I don't own any stamps that are an actual invite so this was the next-best-thing! I inked up my new A-La-Modes from MFT and had a lot of fun:

It's a CAS card for this week - we are now moved into our new-to-us home and while there are still boxes and containers to unpack, and organize - Christmas preparations have been started and the tree is up and snowmen have been placed throughout the house! I will be back in full-force come the New Year and once my craft room is all set up and functionable! :)
Take care and I hope you are able to take a bit of a break from the hustle-bustle of the holiday preparations and join us for a wee bit of crafting! Grab a cider, shortbread cookie and come craft with us....can't wait to see your invitation!
