Hello, and welcome back to my blog! I hope that all of my friends here in America had a good Thanksgiving. Hubby and I hosted again this year, and we were joined by his brother and his fiance, our 2 daughters, and the younger daughter's husband. I can't believe I even just said that...I am a mother-in-law now! 😮 Anyway, we had a nice day, and had lots of good food. 😋
So today, I wanted to share the card I made for the new Critter Crazy Challenge starting today, where we want to see you FEATURE those CRITTERS!! Here is my card:

Hello friends! Welcome back to my blog. It's that time of the month where the Squirrel Squad and I gather those unloved supplies and start using them while incorporating a technique or a certain theme. This month we're focusing our attention on using some vellum and making projects for the holidays. Here are my cards:

Hello friends! Welcome back to my blog! I wanted to share a card with you that I created using some adorable penguin digis and gorgeous wintry paper from Digi Doodle Studios. The paper comes from the Suddenly Winter 8x8 digi paper set. The set the penguins came from was called Winter Time Penguins, but I can no longer find it on the website... my apologies! I didn't know this until after I created my card. Here it is:

Hello crafty friends! It's the beginning of a new month, which means the start of a new Critter Crazy challenge! As always, we want to see you FEATURE a critter or critters, so make sure they take pride of place on your creations! Here is what I created for this month:
I used many images from the digital version of the Gossip Chicks set that used to be available in the Digi Doodle Studios store. It seems that now that the images has been made into a clear set, they no longer offer the digital version. I have linked to the clear version, which is available on Ink n Splatter. The yellow gingham paper comes from the Clucker Clacker 6x6 digital paper pack, which is made to go perfectly with these adorable chickens.
Anyway, I constructed this little yard scene using the Silhouette Studio software. I colored all the images with alcohol markers, and created the cloudy sky using a stencil from Recollections (Michael's brand), Tumbled Glass oxide ink, and a blender brush. I drew in a horizon line with a Micron pen, and added the grass the same way with another Recollections stencil. I did also use a pointy cotton swab to add more texture to the grass using Mowed Lawn oxide ink. I haven't added a sentiment yet, but it will probably just be "HI" or "Hello" when I do. My slimline card measures 8.5 by 3.5 inches.
The story of my card is this: Ronnie Rooster has come out to see how Henrietta Hen is doing on her nest, since she chose to keep it farther away from the coop. She has almost as many eggs as Hester does, so Ronnie is satisfied that she is doing well out here on her own. 😀

Hello friends, and welcome back to my blog! Today's that most special day of the month, where my closest crafty friends and I, aka the Squirrel Squad, do our little blog hop! If you are already hopping along, you should have arrived here from the always fabulous Anna's blog. If you just happened to stop here first, please continue to hop along; I promise it won't take long at all! 😊
So, this month's inspiration was the technique of creating a galaxy background, and the theme of celebration. This was my first time creating this type of background, and it did fill me with some apprehension. I always want my creations to look as awesome as possible, and I was worried that I would totally mess this up! I watched a couple of YouTube videos, especially this one from (the one and only) Jennifer McGuire, which was very helpful and encouraging. I used the exact same colors that she used, and created mine in the exact same way in the hopes of being able to channel some of her awesomeness! Here are the colors:
