Planes, Trains and Automobiles

You knew this was a movie right?  John Candy, Steve Martin….a fantastic movie I might add.  It’s also this week’s challenge theme at Cardz4Guyz!  

I always love doing masculine cards because it’s such a nice change from all the floraly, girly cards that I do…

For my card, I broke out some oldies but goodies.  I found this DP in my drawer and I knew right away it would be perfect for this challenge…I hadn’t even opened it yet (or the matching stamps).  As for the dies, I was cleaning out some dies/embossing folders and found this little gem.  I’m not even sure again, if I have ever used it!

Now, time for you to head over to the C4G blog and play along in this challenge with us.  Check out what the other design team members have created to inspire you as well, and then get crafty!


DP – Bo Bunny – On The Go ( this came out in 2012 and I have just now cracked it open!  Shocking!)

Dies: Cuttlebug/Provo Craft

Embellishments: Tonic Studios – Nuvo Drops (Ripened Pumpkin)


PS: as you read this I am still on the beach in Cuba having a little R&R time with the fam 🙂  Sunny greetings!


Spring Bunny

I know, we are barely into January and I’m already thinking of Spring!  I can’t help it.  When you have almost 8 months of winter like we do in Calgary, you hang on to the far thought that spring might be around the corner.

If you haven’t been to the Pile It On blog yet, head on over to see our new challenge which is Land Animals.  How cool right??

Our sponsor this week is A Day for Daisies 

I’m using their image Five Beets for Bunny.  I just think she is really cute.

Hi Everyone! Sorry I’ve not posted lately.  I’ve been busy volunteering with my son’s school and knee deep in Christmas prep for a few dinners that I am doing as well as Christmas shopping.

I hope to have something for you soon but in the meantime, I wish you and yours the very best of the season and a joyous and happy new year.

Santa’s Little Helper

Ooohh Christmas is getting so close.  My little guy is getting super excited and he had a visit with Santa today.

Have you been to the Pile It On blog yet today?  Our challenge is up and the theme is Shaped Cards and/or Add a Charm.  We are being sponsored by Crafty Sentiments

For this challenge I went with the add a charm aspect and created this card from the Stampin Up Memories and More Set.  I think it is just so cute.



I created this with the card pack and used a couple of the cards for my backgrounds and the little elf.  I added a sentiment from Recollection stamp/die set I had and I did some heat embossing..  The twine is from Michaels and I paired it with a Christmas charm from Tim Holtz that I have had for quite a long time.  I added a few gold bling to finish it off.

I hope you will play along with us this week and show us what you are creating!

May your days be Merry & Bright

Happy Thursday all!  I’m here with our latest challenge on the Southern Girls Challenge blog.  Ahh, this theme is a love/hate for me…it’s GLITTER!

Glitter is not my friend.  Glitter does not like me.  Luckily Glitter Paper and I are BFFS!  Seriously, I don’t do well with loose glitter, so I opted for some glitter paper to use on my card this week.

Our sponsor is All Dressed Up

I’m using Merry & Bright for my card.  I love this image!


The DP is from Jolee’s Boutique, a collection I’ve been using for the last little while.  I colored the image with my copics and then for the glitter challenge, I used some glitter paper to die cut my snowflakes.

Be sure to hop over to the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you!


Welcome my pretties!  I’m giving you the deets on our new challenge over at Color Crazy….  as always, the theme is anything goes!   Our sponsor this week is Polkadoodles!

Display our badge...

I’ve created this card using the Polkadoodles image called “Snowman – Winnie Angel” as well.  I knew for this card I really wanted to go with the traditional red/green color scheme and so I just used some Recollection paper that i had in my stash.  I added some snowflakes that I recently picked up at the $$ store which I just love!  I colored her with my copics and then added a strip of washi and a word sticker to finish it off.  For a little extra fun, I did one edge in a fun border punch.

Your turn!  What are you coloring this week????
