Craftaholics R Us Challenge #46 ~ Girly

Hello friends!! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday week! It's time for another challenge over at Craftaholics R Us and we hope you can join us! To see all the guidelines and participate in the fun simply click on the badge below....


When I think girly themed paper crafts I automatically think Anna Griffin. She really is the queen of all things pretty and feminine in the crafting world. I made this card using a way older cardmaking kit of hers which I don't know the name of. At one point I took all my accumulated older Anna Griffin partial kits and bits & pieces and combined them into one container, so I don't know which elements go with which kit. Anyway, this card was super easy to make and all the elements are Anna Griffin except the gems which are Recollections and the clear glitter pen which is Wink of Stella. I hope you enjoy my super girly yet simple card!


Thank you for visiting me today and I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving!

FCCB Challenge #314 ~ Thanks(giving)

Hello everyone! I'm finally back to my normal crafting routine after many weeks off, which means the fires are over and our house and property are unharmed.... Thank God! However, we continue to pray for those who weren't so lucky. It's so surreal to drive through town and realize that about half of our whole town is just gone.... burned to the ground. Santa Rosa is not alone in this as several other neighboring towns were largely destroyed as well. It's going to take this community many years to recover from this catastrophic event and rebuild entire neighborhoods. 

Anyway, let's move on to a happier subject....  It's Monday so that means it's time for another Challenge Me Monday at FCCB. To see the guidelines and join us just click on the box directly below. I look forward to seeing what you create!
