Trotting By to Say Thank You

Hi Crafty Friends,
I am joining in with Jaded Blossoms February Challenge. THANK YOU or TREAT. This is one of my favorite stamp sets by Jaded Blossom. This horse is just TOO CUTE! I created this card with a variety of Doodlebug patterned papers and some enamel dots! I inked the edges of the papers with distress ink to give it  that rustic farm look.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Have you ever lived on a farm? Do you currently live on a farm?
A: Me? No, I have never lived on a farm but both my Aunts do and I used to love going there to feed the horses, chickens, cows etc. as a child. Horses are one of my favorite animals!


Supplies:
Jaded Blossom Giddy Up Stamp
Doodle Bug 6x6 Paper Pad Down on the Farm

Smile: It's Your Kodak Moment!

Hi Crafty Friends,
This is a unique card I made inspired by twisting around this week's My Favorite Things Sketch. When I turned it on it's side, it looked like a Kodak Camera to me! Remember those?

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Did you use to use Kodak Disposable cameras?
A: Me? Absolutely! I remember coming home from weekend trips with friends with like 6 Kodak cameras and getting SOOOOO EXCITED to see how the pictures turned out! No previews or taking the perfect shot!

Dream Big with Spring Pixies!

Hi Crafty Friends,
I love this darling stamp set from C.C Designers called Spring Pixies. You can have soooo much fun coloring their outfits. I went with blue for her outfit in this card because I was making it for my identical twin sister whose favorite color used to be blue. She likes to say it brings out her (our) eyes. (I say used to be because her wedding was all bright purple so that is her NEW favorite). I love the blue and yellow combo so I went with blue. I used the February Monthly Challenge sketch to inspire my design. Hope you like it!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you have the same favorite color now as you did when you were a child?
A: Me? Yep! It's always been PINK. My sister nope...was blue, now purple.
