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
$10.00
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!!

4 CC #299 {Favorite Era}

 

Happy "4 Crafty Chicks" Thursday everyone! Tamie is our hostess this week and she's looking for YOUR FAVORITE ERA....I don't think it's too hard to figure out which era I chose...lol


I totally love this hippie girl from an old stash of Bugaboo Stamps made for Totally Stampalicious a few years back....LOVE HER! I love the 70's - their bright colors, flower power, make love not war and PEACE MAN! I also was born in 1970 lol...

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

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!

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!
