HIMCR #179 - Freestyle!

 Happy Saturday folks!!
Do you believe that it is the last Saturday before Christmas???
Unreal....really, it is.
Busy day for us.
My gang and some friends are heading to our church to make Christmas 'baskets'
for the less unfortunate folk in our area.
We have been doing this for many years, and my kids enjoy doing this.
Then we deliver. This year, we have our local Scout group helping us.
Should be great!

Anyways, being Saturday means that there is a new challenge over on 
How fun is that??!

This week's sponsor a Day for Daisies!!
 The prize is a $12 Gift certificate to spend in their shop!!

Let me say, I am not really a digital stamp kind of gal, but lately, wow!!!
Especially this site! 
It has some AMAZING designs! 

The DT were allowed to work with an image of their choosing.
The image I choose, well, just tugged at my heart strings.
Made e think of the angels, and Baby Jesus and such....
I had the perfect paper picked out for my angel.
It is an older collection from Fancy Pants Designs--Winter Wonderland.
I kept the design fairly simple as I didn't want to pull away from the main messgae, 
which is 'Peace On Earth'.

I used a mix of coloring mediums; pastel pencils, chalks, and metallic pens..
With a touch of  metallic silver Zazz glue.

That is it for me...time to get my gang ready.
Hope to see your creations--!
have a great day!
Be safe. Get crafty.

Friday with possibilites

For me, it is.
Lightly snowing here, and the weather is mild.
Blissfully beautiful!!

Christmas is almost here--are you ready??
For us, almost.

I have a piece of art to share with you today.
I felt like getting ....'artsy'
Took a canvas, some Gelatos, my Sharpies
and some Unity stamps, along with a dark dye ink.

This is what I created:
I ended up putting 2 rolled flowers on the bottom left.
Just because. :)
I think I will put this up in my daugter's room---
after all, she chose the colors! ;)

I am linking this up to Unity's Friends with Flair challenge this week.

Thanks for stopping by!

HIMCR #177--Let it snow!

Good day to you all!
Thank you for stopping by!

Can you believe that we are already in Decenmber??
That I have not posted in a couple of weeks??
Well, the latter being with a technical error with my 'dear' laptop, 
which is has been  repaired 3x since acquiring it.
Not impressed with the service at Bureau En Gros (or Staples, for you Non-Quebecers!)

Anyhow--besides that, and things just being hectic in general, 
I was able to get some crafting done.
(Can I hear a 'WOOP'?)

This post is to display my card for Hiding In My Craft Room.
Saturday meaning a brand new challenge--which this week happens to be:
HIMCR #177 - Christmas Colors!

This week's sponsor is Paper Temptress!!
If you have never checked them out, definitely do so!!
I had the opportunity to 'play' with some of the papers--and let me say, 
WOW! Gorgeous!!

Here is what I created:

Of course, my camera as been 'acting' up, and the picture does not do 
the absolute beauty of the papers!

I am also linking this up to the following:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Christmas/Holidays
Anyhow, that's it for me.
Have an awesome day!
See you soon.

Wild and Precious life

 Happy Friday!
Sorry about the late post, but I was pretty excited that I had some time for some 'me' time, 
which equals crafty time!!

I went outside the box tonight.
I have lots of stamps, especially Unity, 
(although probably not as many as some of you gals---you know whom you are!)
and I haven't been 'following' them lately.
Miss them....honestly do.

And as I was looking through my bin of Unity stamps yesterday, 
I told myself, "Laura--you must use these before they wither and die away!"
Yep, I was talking to myself, and to beat that, I actually answered!

Tonight, I wanted to make a nice bag for someone's gift.
I had these canvas bags from my Studio Calico's Project Life subscription from
a few months ago. I had an idea!
With this awesome stamp from Unity, and a dye ink, and a hard
surface (obviously!), I inked up that stamp, and stamped away.
Then I went to color the inside of the stamp with my Sharpies, 
when I realized that my son hadn't brought them home from school.
From a project that was a few weeks ago.
No problem. Paint to the rescue.
Used acrylic paint, and a fine paintbrush, and le
I really like my creation!
And it turns out that I am actually able to enter this in a couple of challenges:

So, there you have it.
Have a great night!!
Be safe. Get crafty!
