a HUGE Thank you to DieNamities, Blitsy, Craftwell, Chickaniddy, The Silhouette Challenge Team and Clique Kits for giving me the opportunity to create such lovely projects!

At the time of this writing, I’m enjoying the last of the weekend before we are back to our normal schedule tomorrow and planning more crafty adventures for 2016!

Designing with….Chickaniddy!

Hello crafty friends? How are you? I am doing well. The husband and I are balancing work outside of the home with helping a pair of kindergarteners read, enjoying our little preschooler expand his vocabulary by leaps and bounds and taking every single chance we can to grill outside when the weather is nice (hugs to you, Spring).

I realize my posts have been infrequent and I apologize. But I have been super busy busting out (yes I said busting out) designs with some of the fabulous crafty goodness I have been fortunate to get my hands on.

Today I want to share some of the goodness I created featuring Chickaniddy’s Twirly Girly, Date Night and a little bit of Jolly Good. Those names tho’ (I need to ask my sister if I’m using 2015 slang appropriately.)  Chickaniddy’s collection names are just fabulous! Here is what I have designed along with a sneak photo:

It’s 2015!

Happy New Year (better late than never, right?). I’m sorry I’ve been gone for a bit! I had a lot of holiday time off and my family and I have been trying to get back into the swing of school, homework (in kindergarten — yes, they are busy these days!), snow days and work.  I also used my downtime  for goal setting and working with my husband on some big exciting family plans for later this year (I’ll share as soon as I am able, promise).

In the meantime I’m glad to get back into the swing of blogging!  Thank you so much for your patience! While you are here, I would love to share a few crafty updates:

  • Clique Kits Pep Rally happens on Wednesday, January 21st starting at 11 am Eastern.  Head on over to the blog to check it out!
  • Chickaniddy previewed some of their latest collections at CHA 2015 here. Check out the wintery cards I created using the Jolly Good Collection here.
  • Die-Namites is having an awesome Birthday Blog Hop happening now! Comment all this week as Die-Namites  will be randomly choosing One GRAND PRIZE winner of a $50 Gift Certificate and  Five ~ $10 Gift Certificates Winners.

I LOVE Coffee. THE END. I just finished a cup now and I’m going to reload before this post is finished!  In any case, let’s get to the cards I created, shall we?

I created the first two cards, using an oldie, but goodie, set from Market Street Stamps.  I love those stamps and I was so excited to use them here.  I also used paper and embellies from Kaisercraft and my ink is all Stampin’ Up!

Take care and thanks so much for stopping by! xo, Tyra
