    Tink "Hello Card"

    This is another card I made while on our little Cropping Weekend.  I never realized how tired I would be after 2+ solid days of crafting!  I think the packing, unpacking and repacking. unpacking could be so exhausting!  That doesn't even include my clothes.  Of course I didn't really need to pack any clothing, heck I stayed in my jammies all day Saturday.  Someone needs to invent a storage system that is easy for travel, like on pop out wheels like the rollerskating shoes...  I know staying up into the wee hours didn't help either.. Oh well, we are ready to roll again in August!

    I love intensive overnight Crops, you learn so much, and it's soo much fun.  Maddie did great for being only 9.  The group just loved her, and she had lots of fun too.  It's hard to know how a young crafter will be on such an intensive outing, I am happy to say that she has been invited to the next weekend crop too!  She learned some new crafts, she will be posting them on her blog later this week.

    Everyone brought all their crafting goodies, machines, tools, etc. and we all shared.  We had a couple of challenges that had to be completed rather quickly. (About 1 hour!).  It was loads of fun.  I learned about a product called "Un-do",  this stuff is awesome.  Needless to say crafting late into the night does create some crafting errors that have to be fixed!  Most little mistakes just make the creation all the more special, unless you attach it backwards or wrong side down..oops.  Yes this simple card needed some "Un-do"

    I also used some Art Glitter on Tink, it is a product I have never used before.  I really like the shimmer it produces.  Thanks to Gail for enabling me with her magic Un-do and Art Glitter...I entered Tink into the following challenges:

    Only the "Un-do" and Art Glitter were new (Thank's Gail, love them), everything else came from my stash.  Here's what I used to create this little cutie:
    • Cricut, Wild Card cart to cut out card
    • Cute flower pattern paper
    • Tinker Bell & hello stamps
    • Copic, SU Markers
    • Art Glitter
    • Un-do(to fix boo boo's)
    • Nestabilities Die for cut-out & embossing (Thank's again Gail, now I gotta get those too!
    • Butterfly Sticker
    Thanks for looking, comments appreciated.  Have a great week!

    Happy Mother's Day to all!

    We have been so busy with family birthdays and Mother's Day that we have hardly had the chance to do our favorite things!...You got it crafting.  I guess trying to start up a challenge blog for kids took a little time too.  I hope that word will get around that there's a new challenge blog for just kids.  My grandkids are such joyfull little crafters we decided to create a challenge blog for them. My daughter Jamie's constant nagging " come on Mom lets start a kids challenge blog" was just too much!!!  It took me a while to cave in, but now I am hooked, lined and
