Winner's of our Clean and Simple

Good morning everyone! I will start by apologizing for this post being late. Yesterday was a hectic and emotional day for me and I missed fulfilling my obligation to my team. I am sorry.

We had so many amazing creations entered into this challenge. You gave us girls a challenge of our own to pick the winners. So thank you so much for everyone who took the time to participate.

Winner's are in no particular order:



I love how you used mostly white to create such a delicious card. Your flowers are bright and just pop. The texture and score lines just add to the pop of your card Jann.

E Marie


One layer card with a whole lot of magic and texture. The twine just adds to the amazing picture you designed for you clean and simple card. The sentiment and picture of this card are amazing.
Suzie McFloozy


Clean and Simple with a pop. I umbrella's are just wonderful and full of color. The color of your sentiment also add a pop to your base of white. Just beautiful.

Congratulations, ladies! Please grab your Golden Egg badge and display it proudly on your blog! We'd love it if you could link it back to our challenge too.

Thanks to all who participated in Lori's Clean and Simple challenge - We will be back tomorrow with a brand new challenge...can you believe we are up to #44 already? Crazy... :) See you in the morning!

4 Crafty Chicks Get Clean and Simple!

Happy Thursday everyone! We sure have been having a lot of rain and cloudy, windy weather here in Alberta the past couple weeks! Although it is a blessing for all the wildfires we have going on in our province, it is getting out of hand as well....there are rivers flooding, towns on evacuation notices due to flooding, and I think we've had about enough now! I sure hope Summer comes and stays for a while - we'd love to see Mr. Sun for a few days in a row! LOL...

For this week's challenge, I (Lori), am the hostess-with-da-mostess, and my challenge to you is CLEAN and SIMPLE (no more than 2 layers). I know for me, I love, love, love the look of simple cards, but I find them extremely difficult to make. So...that is why I am issuing this challenge - I need ideas...and I *know* there are so many talented CAS stampers out there - so let's see 'em!

Here is my card:

Here are the wonderful CAS creations made by the rest of the Chicks:

Get Well Soon with 4 Crafty Chicks

Hi Crafters! Are you ready for a new challenge from 4 Crafty Chicks? As I type this up it is looking very blah outside but it always cheers me to know that a new challenge is on it's way. Your hostess for this week is me *Tamie* and I look forward to sharing my challenge with you. This time of year can be hard on people with allergies, spring colds, sport injuries etc... and we all need a little cheer up. Sometimes I forget to make this kind of card so this is my challenge for you:

Challenge #42 - GET WELL SOON!!

Are you ready for some inspiration, well here is my card. I used to have a teddy bear like this when I was little and hugged it so hard when I was sick. It was so much fun to color and I kept the card clean and simple. It is one that could be put together quickly.


My fellow crafty friends have some yummy, very inspirational and scrumptious cards to share with you. Enjoy and if you aren't feeling well please Get Well Soon :)

Blooming Good Fun at the 4 Crafty Chicks!

Hello everyone!  Welcome back for a fun new challenge.  Thanks to everyone who played along with Leanne's Anniversary challenge last week - were you one of our Golden Egg winners?  If you haven't already checked it out, scroll down for yesterday's winners post...they were fabulous!

OK -so...it's June.  It's summer - kind of...  :)  What's the first thing you think about when you think about June and summer?  For me it's FLOWERS and lots of them!  This week, since I'm your hostess-with-the-mostest, I'd like to see your HANDMADE flowers!  There are oodles of tutorials out there on the web about how to use paper, ribbon, twine or fabric (or many other materials, for that matter!) to make beautiful flowers so start surfing to find one that fits you!

For my project, I used wired ribbon to make a fabulous, big, red flower:



Let's see what the rest of the Chicks created:
