Halloween Gnomies Just Wanna Have Fun | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Ah, to be a kid again! I remember looking forward with great anticipation to getting to play dress-up for much of the day, getting to “be” whomever I chose. For me, I remember a mix of things, but the pictures that stand out in my memory include a brown cat (not sure what rummage sale mom found that suit at – I was probably old enough to know I liked kitties and animals in general, but probably not old enough to speak their names!), ghosts, princess (what girl wasn’t?), an angel, Laura from Little House on the Prairie (one of my favorites!), and my all-time favorite: Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. (I told you that was my favorite movie as a kid! ;))

As an adult, we still need to have fun from time to time, though few of us allow that to happen much of at all. (Other’s are in the opposite camp, but that’s a story for someone else’s home on the web. 🙂 I decided to have a little fun this weekend with the sketch challenge posted by my friend Mary of Up North Stampin’. And fun I had! And a lot of inky fingers – better yet!

Happy Cards for hard occasions | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Good Saturday morning, everyone! I’m Im not in the craft room today (though it’s a lovely rainy day here and would be the perfect excuse to be!) but I thought I’d pop in to share what I’ve done in there this week and have en route to their intended recipients. Both cards are for ladies who are healing and could use a bit of cheer.

Silly Rabbit Easter Card | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Creative ruts. They kind of stink!

I sat down last Wednesday or Thursday with some spare time on my lunch break and my stamp catalog and potential Easter-related dies in my lap, pen and paper in hand, to come up with a starting point for the Easter card I wanted to make.

I had an idea in my head, but it was a foggy one, and I didn’t know if and how I could make it work with what supplies I had on hand. See, Easter is such a beautiful season – a reminder of the proof that the Gift we were given with the birth of our Savior was a true gift indeed when as a sinless man He died for us… and rose again, just as He said. Just like He will again for us as He promised and we are reminded of throughout Scripture.

But I’m not going to lie… I adore those cute Easter bunnies we see everywhere these days, too!

AUGUST Fan Club Challenge sneak peek #6 – Another Embossed Beauty :0) | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

I’m back this morning with another sneak peek of what you might be missing out on for the August Fan Club Challenge if you’re not a Splitcoast Fan Club member!

For more information as to why this is just a glimpse and not the full-on “real deal” I usually post, please check out this post where I shared some exciting news!

This month’s theme was I think my favorite of all I’ve participated in since becoming a Fan Club member. I really couldn’t stop playing with this embossing folder. It’s a spinoff of sneak peek #5 that I shared last week. What do you think? Of what you see – do you have a favorite?

I hope you’ll check out the gallery this month and let me know what you think – I’ll be meeting you in the comments either place! I’ll be checking back next week with sneaks for the upcoming Fan Club Challenge for September!

Blessings,

Chrissy

This card can also be found in my gallery on SplitCoast.
