Yay! It’s Friday! That doesn’t really mean that much to me, since I work weekends and shift work so I don’t have a weekend in the traditional sense, but hey! I’m excited for you if that’s how you roll
It’s a brand new challenge for you at Creative Corner Challenges this week. Let’s think outside the box and come up with some unusually shaped cards..anything but square or the traditional rectangle. The DT has some great inspiration for you on the blog this week.
I decided to break out my Wild Card Cartridge and one of my favorite ones on it is the Owl. So I cut it out usual some Basic Grey Nook and Pantry paper. I’ve had it forever in my stash! I then added just some stickles for definition because that paper is pretty loud…LOL
It’s just a simple card because I am sending it out in the mail for an RAK so it can’t have a lot of embellishments on it. I hope you like it.
Stay tuned because we’ve got some changes coming up in May on the blog. Fun Fun Changes.
Happy Friday everyone! The ending of another week..woohooo!! We have a new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges. It’s all about Rainbows. You can have an actual rainbow, rainbow colors or however you wish to interpret it as long as we can see how the rainbow is represented in your project.
Here’s the fun card I made this week.
I inked teh background just using some Tim Holtz Faded Denim distress ink and a cloud die cut. The rainbow is from the Simply Charmed cricut cartridge. The sentiment is MFT.
Make you stop by the blog and check out the other DT inspiration for you this week and to join in our challenge.

Happy Tuesday everyone! It has been a long week in my house as my son has been sick again. He just got over his ear infection and then he got hand/foot/mouth disease. He’s been cooped up inside for awhile now and he’s going stir crazy and so is his mama!
We have a great new challenge for you at Use It Tuesday this week. It’s a Sticky situation when we want you to use the sticky parts of your stash…those rub-ons (oh do I have a lot of those), embossing powders and stickers (everyone has some in their stash, I know it!)..or anything else that sticks….
I created this card using some Glubbers…I bought them 2 years ago when they first came out and never once used them! I also used a couple of different rub ons for this card in the sentiment and the little stitches. I also broke out my glue gun and used it to adhere the bling to the flower! I’m now using my glue gun for EVERYTHING! LOL
The DP is the last of my MME All Spice 6×6 pack. Another one bites the dust…I am so happy I am finally using them up! The ribbon and the bling flower are from my stash as well. I got the sketch for this card from Andrea Walford’s blog . Every week she comes out with a great sketch that is easy to do and has step by step instruction. Love them! Thanks Andrea!

Hi everyone! This post is going to be short and sweet unfortunately. I’ve got sick son and sick husband for the last few days and just so much to do around the house on top of work! I barely have time to breathe let alone craft!
We have a new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges…it’s a Girly Birthday in celebration of Mel’s birthday! Be sure to stop by the blog to check out the DT inspiration this week and also when you enter, if you want to be a Guest Designer, make sure you put GD by your name! We’d love to have you.
The DP came from a flat paper swap I did recently on swap-bot. The image is from my image box and all the rest of the embellishments (flowers, brads, pearls, ribbon) are from my stash. I really liked the colors on this one. I hope you like it to.
Morning all. I have a new card for you for our Anything Goes challenge at Creative Corner Challenges this week.
I used a new Stampin Up set that I got, it’s Serene Silhouettes. I did some dry embossing for the black background. The sentiment is done in heat embossing. Just some bling and twine and ribbon from my stash. A pretty simple card. Make sure you stop by the blog and check out the rest of the DT inspiration pieces for you.
That unfortunately does not seem to be something that we are going to have here in Calgary today. It’s still a bit cloudy and cool today. The last vestiges of winter are still lingering around. I wish they would just go already.
Today’s challenge at Use it Tuesday is All About Spring. It’s time to break out the flowers, the bright colors, the sunshine, all the good stuff. As always you need to use up some of your stash so make sure you let us know in your post what you used.
I finally have used up all of the Lil Sprout collection by Crate Paper so here is my final project. The stamp set is one from my stash that I don’t use enough by My Favorite Things. It comes with its own sentiment as well. I just used my spellbinders and inked it up with some Tim Holtz ink. The bling is from my stash as well. I hope you like it.
