As you can see from the card I made this week, my favorite is SWEET. I really do like savory foods also, but if push came to shove and I HAD to choose one or the other to only have, I think I'd have sweet to satisfy my sweet tooth :)

Cupcake and sentiment dies are both from Your Next Stamp. So fun!! Be sure to come on over to the As You Like It blog and see what my super talented design team mates have created for you! AMAZING creations this week!! Cheers! a

4 CC #265 {sparkle & shine}

Happy "4 Crafty Chicks" Thursday!! It is my turn to play hostess and this week's challenge is a theme:

4 CC #265 {sparkle & shine}

So that means we want to see sparkly papers, glitter, gems, bling, shiny ribbons, or embossing etc. Anything you would consider sparkly and shiny - we wanna see it!!

I used some shiny silver SU! paper, embossed it with an ornaments embossing folder then added some gems randomly for added sparkle. The JOY sentiment is cut out of sookwang paper with blue glitter sprinkled on the top fun!! I hope you enjoy this challenge as much as I did!

Hop on over to the 4 Crafty Chicks challenge blog HERE to see what the rest of the Chicks have created for you - there is some serious "shine" happenin' over there! Might need your shades ;) CHEERS!

going in circles at 4 crafty chicks

Happy "4 Crafty Chicks" Thursday everyone! The leaves are changing colors, the temperatures are falling, the air is crisp and fresh here in central Alberta, CANADA. Fall is here. I love the colors! I am hoping to get in a few more back yard firepit sessions before it's too cold or that snow stuff comes...maybe this weekend!

This week over at 4 Crafty Chicks, our hostess-with-the-mostess is miss Tamie and she wants to see CIRCLES on our projects this week. Please remember, it can be a 3D craft, card, scrapbook layout, etc. 

4 CC #264 - CIRCLES

For my card this week, I used an older Your Next Stamp sketch and one of their gorgeous sentiment stamps:

4 CC #263 and ayli #62

Happy Thursday! Today I am combining 2 DT challenges into one card. That doesn't happen very often but this week, it all worked out :)

The challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks is "BIRTHDAY" as it is Tina's turn to play hostess and her birthday falls in this week! Happy Birthday friend! For my card, I am using some new to me Your Next Stamp dies (the balloon and the Happy Birthday)

And the challenge at As You Like It is to "USE  YOUR FAVORITE DIE" and tell why it's your favorite. I used my stitched rectangle die from 'Lil Inker Designs...I use my rectangle dies A LOT...almost every card. They are extremely versatile and make a crisp, defined outline on any layer or image panel :)

Here's a bit of info on our sponsor for this challenge at As You Like It:

Be sure to hop on over to each of the blogs and play along - we'd love to have you!! Each design team has creations that will knock your socks off - so be sure to pop in ;) Cheers!
