4 CCC# 139 {Felt}

Happy 4 Crafty Chicks Thursday! It is my turn to play "hostess-with-da-mostess" this week and so I decided to make us Chicks delve into our stash of FELT....

4 CCC #139 {FELT}

I had so much fun coloring this hilarious image/sentiment. Tamie and I went shopping at her LSS a while back, and we sat and colored for a whole evening - it was awesome to have images stamped, colored and ready to assemble a card with! For my felt, I used some of the Apple Green felt from My Favorite Things and made a flower with it; added the button with some twine - WALAAA! Done!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew - Make Your Own Flowers
Party Time Tuesdays - Tic Tac Toe Challenge (button, twine, flower)
7 Kids College Fund - Flowers
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges - Anything Goes

I sure do hope you get some time to dig out that felt and give this challenge a go! I am so curious to see how other crafty PEEPS use it....happy crafting!

4 CCC #138 {Trees}

Happy 4 Crafty Chicks Thursday once again to all my crafty PEEPS out in Blogland...I sure hope your week has been a good one! We had another spring (winter) storm over the weekend and it delivered close to a foot of new snow but the temps this week have been nice, so it IS melting and drying up. Thank goodness! I am ready for spring to be here ;)

Our hostess-with-the-mostess this week is our wonderful, Tamie, and she's issued the following challenge for  y'all to play along with:

4 CCC #138 - {TREES}

I took the liberty of using paper out of my stash to incorporate my tree this week; added a sentiment; used some dies to create the clouds, fence and grass, and WA-LAAA!! Done in about 5 mins ;) Gotta luv it when it happens that quick....

I do hope you find some time to come play with us this week! We'd love to see all the different ways "TREES" get used in your projects ;) Happy crafting!!

4 CCC #136 - How "Charming!"

I just finished reading that here in central Alberta, we are scheduled for a snow storm tonight, Friday and Saturday. *SIGH!* Our snow is melting so nice, our country roads are dry enough for me to be running outside instead of the treadmill, the geese are all back, and the temps have been heavenly!!! I really, really, REALLY hope the weathermen are wrong LOL....

Alright, enough complaining about the weather, after all, this *is* Alberta, and I should be used to it by now...onto our challenge this week over at 4 Crafty Chicks:

Leanne is our "hostess extraordinaire" and she wants to see CHARMS on your projects!!! HOW FUN :) I cannot wait to see how everyone uses them. For my card, I CASE'd a card from Pinterest (gotta luv pinning, hey?!) and tied a key to my twine:

I really do hope you find some time to sit and get crafty with us this week :) We sure do love seeing all the wonderful inspiration that comes pouring in!! I would like to take this time to welcome our newest Guest Designer to 4 Crafty Chicks for the month of April:
