IT'S SNOW TIME AGAIN AT A CREATIVE NEED CHALLENGE FOR DECEMBER

Greeetings to all,

Guess I am in a festive mood today. Snow started falling on wednesday night but it melted a bit. What with the warmer temps' and then it gets cold again. Anyway, we didn't let that stop us at A CREATIVE NEED CHALLENGE for December is snow time for us Quebecois anyway. He, he, he!

So take out your cardstock, be it white, kraft, design papers and tear them up to make beautiful snow scapes.Or use your punches, I used a blue die snowflake I had in my stash to embellish the already cool image from Deena's beautiful mind, it's simply called SNOW HAPPY. And doesn't it make you smile just looking at the sweet expression on this child's face.

Finally, I used white puffy paint to make a whirlwind of a snowstorm scene in my second card. I love the little punched circles I added with foam tape to give them a little depth. The idea is to create a snow scene, right.
So there you go,
have fun
and keep well.

A DAY FOR DAISIES AUTUMN CHALLENGE 108

Hello everyone,

I made this card for the a day for daisies challenge 108 krafty tags, but first for Sarah Selecky. She is a beautiful person, talented writer and even a more a woman with a generous heart and knows how to use it and her talents to encourage writers in any stages of their career. I experiences her kindness since last june of this year. A very sweet friend Pat had sent me the link to an online writing class she offers to the world on the web.  (Story is a state of mind)So I joined and you can read about here on my writing blog; AS I WRITE I BREATHE I still find it very hard to write and share with the whole world but I am getting there. I have notebooks filled with stories waiting to be shared. 

Anywho I should go on about the card I sent to her this morning. I thought Autumn blessings was just the right kind of sentiment for what my heart needed to share with this beautiful person.

I also want to thank Tammy for such beautiful images and Arielle of course for the sentiment.

I wish you all a magnificient day.

Kindly, Peggyxo

BUTTON UP FOR NOVEMBER ACN CHALLENGE

Hello to all,

I have just so excited to show you
 Deena's  new digital image Gnome and deer 
 for the Christmas holidays.
 It's so cool isn't it. It is inspired by the Sweedish Santa
 and I know just who to send it too. 

With the chills of winter nearing, we do feel it here
in the Montreal and northern areas of
our beautiful province of Quebec.
So I guess that is what inspired Deena this challenge.
Because the first thing we Quebecers do before
walking outside is
BUTTON UP.

So go ahead and use buttons anyway you want, be sure to have fun
while playing. I used a vintage looking button done up with a simple 
loose knot I made. 

Hope you like it.
Join us will you, we are always here at:
Of course, there is always amazing images to
be won.

I also used Karen's sketch from 

Have a beautiful day!

SWEET BABY GIRL BIRTHDAY


Hello,

Just wanted to add this little birthday I card I created using a precious image from Mo Manning's. I had this one colored in for a while and thought it would be perfect for my youngest grand-daughter who turned 2 yesterday. Yeah, time flies.

I used a sentiment I had printed out a while ago too and the sketch is from Sweet sunday sketch from sept 28. So glad I got to finish it up before she got here, she love the card sooo much and we, her.

Thanks for stopping by,

TEXTURED CARDS FOR SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE ON A CREATIVE NEED

FUNKY TEXTURED CARD FOR A TRUE FRIEND



Hello to all,

Yes, I have been a busy the past months. I am writing more, exercising more, reading more, even went out on labor day week-end to see more whales and yes I have been eating more....what? Well that is another topic alltogether. :) 
I just love Deena's september challenge this month (as always) it's all about textures and patterns. Whoo, did I have fun with this one. I added a little textured frame for my sentiment that has been on my craft table for a while, so I'm happy I did and it makes imy card look even funkyer!

If you all want to play along come here to  a creative need challenge blog and just go where your whimsical self will take you. I did and it felt soooo good.

There are some images to be won and of course a beautiful gallery to admire.

I did use  Jen Cochran (Fattire7) card as inspiration for mine, in honor of her becoming the new hostess for the QUEEN FOR THE DAY challenge as our sweet Trish is retiring. Thank you both for your commitment and I hope I can play along as often as possible.

Have a beautiful week-end will see you all in blogland.

TRAVELING THIS SUMMER A CREATIVE NEED CHALLENGE #21



Hello to all,

I am so glad I could join this week in the A creative need challenge. My printer was out because we had a power outage a few weeks back and my sweet son was out of town and could not help with the solution. See, unlike him, I wasn't born with a computer mouse in my hand. How does that song go again...times, they are a changing. :)

Anywho, this week is still about vacations, holidays, traveling and we also are planning on traveling too, but don't know exactly when though. But traveling is part of a good summer holiday for alot of us and when you do, drive safe and be sure to have good sing along songs they seem to make the trips shorter somehow.

Join us all won't you, we always enjoy your company at
A CREATIVE NEED .

Thank you for stopping by, Peggyxo
