A little Friendly Challenge

So, I have this Canadian friend, her name is Leah, and she and I chat a lot.... well.... we message a lot! Ha ha ha! Thank goodness for technology (most of the time)!  So, in the course of our chatting we decided to challenge one another to a little Friendly Crafty Challenge.  It goes like this:  Each month one of us is to mail the other some element for a card (or other project) to use.  It could be something we love, or something we hate, or whatever.  But the challenge is that we BOTH have to make a project using that element.

So, here is my first project using the item that I mailed to the great white north!



You can pop on over to Leah's blog and check out her post as well (http://odetopaper.blogspot.com/2016/08/a-fun-friendly-challenge.html) to see what you think is the element that we both used! Comment on both of our blogs and let us know!  
Hope you all have a crafty day!

Fireflies at the beach!

Well hello there Fireflies! I'm so excited about the August challenge.... it's "A day at the beach!"  (You can find more info about the challenge here.)  Being as I moved from California to Idaho about a decade ago, it's been a while since I've seen the beach.  (Insert sad face here.)  But with the challenge for Firefly Crafts, I can remember what it was like to be there! (smile) So, here's my project:
Items Used:

I ADORE the wooden embellishments from Firefly, they are so awesome and add just a touch of whimsey.  I used a ceramic plate and my Distress Ink minis and literally just rubbed them on the plate, then i spritzed it with water and laid the yardstick on it, squished it around a little and then pulled it up and set it to dry.  Once dry (well mostly dry, because I'm totally impatient like that) I stamped some words using a stamp from Kitchen Sink (also found in the Firefly Craft store, but out of stock at the moment) .   I rarely do the mixed m…

Wonderful Wednesday Challenge

Ok, so this card is WAY different for me.... ready???  Well, here ya go...
 There are two lawyers of shaker here, the first has a handful of brightly (copic) colored seahorses, the second is filled with sequins I got from Firefly Crafts. I also used the coral stamp and colored it in different shades and placed them in the different layers to create more depth.
Here's a closer look at the inside:  Here's the stuff I used:





I'm going to use this card for the Wonderful Wednesday challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps... Crossing my fingers!!!
Ok, I'm off to get some more ink on my fingers, he he he!  Have a really Krafty day everyone!

I have been so wrapped up in Firefly (my true love) that I haven't had a lot of time to play on other challenges..... but.... I happened to get a BUNCH of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps this week, so......

The challenge over at KKS is to use GREEN!!!!! Here's what I did:


And here's the supplies I used:

The goddess comes off and is on a bookmark, since I'm such a reader I thought it would be a good little moments from the card! I hope you enjoy my little bookmark card! Thanks for stopping by... Happy Krafting everyone!!!
