Squirrelz Stash Bash – March Hop

Welcome back to everyone’s favorite time of the month, the Squirrelz Stash Bash hop where we break out those supplies we’ve had squirreled away forever and use them to create a project for the monthly theme. March is Spring in the northern hemisphere, so Spring was chosen as this month’s theme, to be interpreted as […]

Squirrely Stash Bash – February 2022

Welcome to this month’s installment of the Squirrely Stash Bash! What’s that, you ask? Its the monthly get together of the Squirrel Squad (6 good crafty friends) who use a monthly prompt to bash our stash of supplies that we’ve hoarded squirreled away! If you are here from my sweet Squirrel Sister, Marie Bingaman, I […]

Squirrels Gone Nutz November Hop

Welcome back to the monthly shindig of the Squirrel Squad! For those new here, my little group (just 6 of us) create projects using items in our stash that we have squirreled away and not used, or at least not in a long while. Each month we have a prompt that includes a theme and […]

Squirrels Gone Nutz October Hop!

The Squirrel Squad is at it again! Our monthly hops are all about using old supplies we’ve squirreled away and forgotten about. Each month we pick either a supply or technique, and a prompt to go with it. For October, we’re doing the Galaxy technique (typically for making backgrounds), and the prompt is Celebrations. Now, […]

Squirrels Gone Nutz September Hop!

I’m not gonna lie… the last month was a blur, and its probably better that way cause not one bit of it was good. But, I’m here hoping this hop changes my luck the way it always changes my mood for the better! The creative time sure did me some good! We’re back at it […]

June DT Post for 2CCC with Beccy’s Place

Hello, my sweet friends! I hope the weather has been as beautiful in your part of the world as it has been in mine!!! I’ve been enjoying the sunshine and doing quite a bit of gardening, tending to the veggies and flowers. Gardening settles my nerves, gets me back in touch with nature, and renews […]

May JDS Mid-Month Inspiration and Farewell

Sad news today… this is my final post for Jan’s Digi Stamps. After 1.5 wonderful years on the DT, I find myself needing to step down from the team. My hands continue to worsen and typing is something that aggravates the pain. Writing the posts would probably still be doable, but leaving comments and love […]

May DT Post for 2CCC

The May challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies has kicked off, and this time we have a brand new sponsor, TNT Artspirations. For today’s card, I had the pleasure of using an image called Squirrel – Just Peeking In, and you guys know how much I love squirrels if you have been here before. Most […]

April Hop with Squirrel Gone Nutz

Oh yeah! I don’t know if you look forward to this day as much as I do, but with my crafty time being much more limited these days, our little but mighty hop has become a bright star on a bleak horizon for me. With all of my other crafty obligations requiring me to use […]

Mid Month Inspiration with JDS

Today’s card for the JDS mid-challenge inspiration post was super easy to create using a precolored image and sentiment from Jan’s Digi Stamps, from her set called Floral Flourish. To keep the focus on the image, I printed it large and included the sentiment on the same panel. I didn’t want the background to distract […]

April DT Post for Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge

Spring isn’t the only thing in the air!!! Today I am sharing a card I used with a set from Jan’s Digi Stamps called Up, UP, AWAY! Now, ***in full disclosure***, the dog I used is NOT part of the set. He’s from a Mama Elephant clear stamp set called Mini Dog Agenda. Here is […]

April 2CCC DT Post with Sheepski Designs

Have you ever had a card that almost refused to be made, despite the clear image you had in your head for it??? This was one of those for me but I’m so glad I stuck with the original idea cause I am super pleased with the results. Today’s card is my contribution to the […]

Squirrels Gone Nutz February Hop!
