Merry Monday #207 {What's in the Bag?}

Happy "Merry Monday!" This week, miss Nina is our challenge hostess and she would like us to create a Christmas card with a "bag or sack" on it...check it out:

I had to dig through my entire craft room (pattern papers, stamps, dies, digi's) until I finally came across this clip art (an idea from Nina last week using Google lol - thanks, Nina!) to use for my image this week. I don't have a Santa image, or any other image, with a sack/prezzie bag on it at, clip art was the answer!

I hope you get some time to come and play along with us Merry Makers this week - we'd love to have you! Click HERE for more details!

As You Like It #80 {Big or Little Bows}

Welcome back to my blog :) This week at As You Like It, we would like to know what your favorite is - BIG or SMALL bows! Here are the details:

The sponsor of this challenge is

Sweet n Sassy Stamps
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Big or Little Bows (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

My favorite is little bows. I really do enjoy big bows, but I find smaller bows more versatile and you can add a small piece of detail to a card when using a small bow....For my card, I am using some new to me Paper Sweeties stamps and dies - SO FUN!!!! I am going to be using more of these in the near future ;)

Be sure to hop on over to the As You Like It blog and come play along with us!! Cheers!!

Thanks for stopping in today - I sure hope you come on over to the hen house HERE and come play with us! Happy crafting!

4 CC #297 {It's all about the sass!}

Happy "4 Crafty Chicks" Thursday! Well....first off - I gotta say .....


Ha! Ha! My 2 months as a tax preparer have come to an end and I am back to semi-normal life at home! I will still be extremely busy with our custom spraying business, farming and I am taking some courses via correspondence - so life will still be a bit crazy! But, I am hoping to be back in my craft room a bit more ;)

This week, we are having a Guest Designer Call - this will be for the months of June, July and August. If you are wanting to come and hang out in the hen house with us Chicks for a month, put GDT at the end of your name in your linkie when you put your card in for our challenge! We'd love to have you!

This week's challenge is brought to you by our wonderful LEANNE and she's wanting y'all to pull out that SASS and make a card:

4 CC #297 {Sassy Woman!}

When I hear "sassy woman," the first person who pops in my head is STELLA from Bugaboo Stamps! lol Now this girl knows how to sass.....

I just love her - she's got a comeback for EVERYTHING lol....We'd love to see some sassy women cards created by YOU. Come join us HERE and link up your creation for us. Remember, if you'd like to be a guest designer for a month (June, July or August) come let us know! Happy crafting!
