~MERRY CHRISTMAS from Craft Us Crazy and KennyK Downloads~

This week at Craft Us Crazy we've decided to do a surprise challenge and we have a great sponsor to go along with it.....
The challenge this week, is of course...Christmas and/or Humorous for those who might not celebrate Christmas. I would personally like to thank Kenny and Elena for this great image I got to work with this challenge, and I have a few more coming throughout the next two weeks. They're so much fun to play with!! And the winner of our challenge will win 5 digital images!!! So what ya waiting for? Come on over and join us!!

So without further ado, here's Queen's Cutie wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!!
Believe it or not this is the first time I've ever colored a KennyK image. To be honest, I've always been intimidated by them. Never thought I would do them the justice that they deserve, but I do believe that Queen's Cutie turned out pretty nice. So you better believe I'll be adding more of these images to my shopping list! 
I tried to make my card look like a present, with the great Loopy Loopy Bow from The Cutting Cafe. This file was another fun addition to play with. I chose to print each of the pdf files off instead of using my cutter. I wanted to see how easy it would be, and I was right, it was just as easy printing and cutting by hand, as it was using my cutter. I really had so much fun making this card. The papers are from DCWV Christmas Stack and I done the "Merry Christmas" with the font Broadway and chose to distress the edges of each layer. Pulled out a button and some twine from The Twinery, and voila! She's ready to go wish someone a very Merry Christmas!!! 

I hope that everyone has a very safe and happy holidays over the next few weeks. I wish you all the happiness and laughter that Christmas brings. I pray that everyone has a VERY SAFE and fun New Year's Eve as well. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!!!!!  MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

~Sketchy Inspiration at The Sweet Stop~

Happy Monday!! Well hopefully it'll be a happy Monday for everyone! It's a cold one here in Arizona, so I think a day of crafting and keeping warm is in order!! 
I came across a great challenge at The Sweet Stop, a sketch challenge, which I hardly ever do, but I loved this one for some reason. So, I decided to give it a try. I made this card for a dear friend of mine that lost her husband a few days ago. I hope it lets her know how much we're all thinking about her. We love you Mary!


On to the sketch... The sketch below is what we were to follow at The Sweet Stop. We could turn it, flip it, change the shape but needed to stay as close as we could to it, so I believe I accomplished that. Sometimes it's nice to have that inspiration, whether a picture, a sketch, an idea to jumpstart your creative juices. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my card. I appreciate ya taking the time out of your busy day! Have a great week!!

~Thinking of You with Daisy~

 Happy Saturday!! Who's ready for the LSU/UGA game?? anyone...anyone?? I am!! I'm not a LSU fan, but I can't stand UGA, so I'll be rooting for LSU tonight and then waiting for Alabama to roll all over them in the National Championship Game! Anywho..on with why we're here lol
 I made this card for a family member that's going through a tough time right now, so I wanted her to know that I was thinking about her. I do believe that this adorable Elisabeth Bell stamp, does just that. Daisy is lost in thought wishing that she could say or do something to make her day a little bit better! Daisy and I hope that we put a little smile on her face, if only for a few seconds.
