Big Little Love with Fusion

Hello Everybody!

I am so happy to be playing along with the latest challenge from Fusion! I have been so busy these past few weeks, I have only been able to take in all the beautiful inspiration from the Fusion designers and the talented folks playing along! Today I had some time to make this adorable little elephant card, bringing you lots of love! There’s still a little time to play along with the Fusion Card Challenge right here: http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/04/fusion-babys-room.html

I created this card by combining a few elements from both the sketch and the photo, so this week I have a Fusion! I liked the big circle element right in the center, the sentiment, and the little blue hearts, which I imagined as a band extending from the love in the center. I added the elephant, and the light blue, grey, and white from the photo. This little guy with the big ears is sending you all his love!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Hello Spring!

Hello Everybody!

Spring has arrived, and with it comes a new hope and a new beginning! Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been posting much this past month, and you are right! We made a big move from Alabama to Florida, so right now, our spring feels like a warm summer! I guess we’ll finally see first hand what a Florida summer is really like!

Our big move turned into a real adventure! We are scrambling to make things work, but when I say we’re ready for a new beginning, we are REALLY ready for a new beginning!

If you’d like to read about what happened to us, you can fund our story on the Go Fund Me page under ‘We Hendersons need a hand, please.”  Or try our link right here: https://www.gofundme.com/heyitsthehendersons

Please share our campaign and our link if you can! We would be so thrilled! I would also like to thank the group of crafty superheroes who have contributed to our campaign so far, and shared it with others who also contributed! It really does work, and the donations we have received so far are really going a long way. I am amazed at the number of contributors who are all active artists and bloggers! Our crafty community is very special in so many ways! We are still trying to pick up the pieces from this curveball that came zooming our way, and are not quite out of the woods yet, but we will be, thanks to AMAZING people like all of you!

Crimson Owl Creations has a new address and a new email too! You can send me an email directly at crimsonowl@comcast.net, friend me on Facebook, or PM for my snail mail address here in the the beautiful state of Florida.

Thanks so much for going us today!

Giving Thanks!

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing a very special Thank You card I created for a special special artist and designer, Sean Fetterman! Sean participated in the Season’s Giving Blog Hop and offered an AMAZING prize package to one lucky person, and that person was me! Take a look at the box full of crafty goodness that arrived in the mail last week!

Yes, that is a full-sized MISTI right on top of the package, in addition to beautiful dies and stamps from Gina K. Designs, adhesives, Foil-Mates, paper, inks, and so much more! It is a truly amazing package, and I couldn’t be happier to receive it!

This package had the most circuitous route imaginable! It started in frozen Minnesota, made it’s way to our old address in Alabama, and SHOULD have come right to our door! However, we used to live right OUTSIDE the city of Tuscaloosa in a tiny little rural burg known as Buhl. The postmaster in Buhl sent the package to our new forwarding address here in Florida two days earlier than scheduled, and so all the crafty goodies left for Florida before we did! Eventually it arrived on the beautiful Treasure Coast, and what a treasure it was! Thanks again to the wonderfully inspirational Sean Fetterman.

My wish for us all is to never forget, or neglect, the people who provide so many blessings in our lives that we are all so grateful.  This past month, I have seen the absolute very best in people, right along with the absolute worst in others. We are so grateful for those wonderful kind people in our lives, old friends and new, all a part of our extended family. Thank you ALL for being the absolute BEST people on earth, helping us to overcome the aftermath of the truly worst.

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Winnie and Walter Birthday Bash

Hello Everyone!

Happy Birthday Winnie and Walter! Our friends at Winnie and Walter are celebrating the Big 4 with a Birthday Bash! You can get all the details and send your birthday wishes over at the Winnie and Walter blog right here: http://www.blog.winniewalter.com/2018/02/w-4th-birthday-bash-grid-challenge-with.html

Today, I am playing along with the Grid Challenge with Keren! The challenge was to make a card that featured a grid! I used a fun grid embossing plate to create the puffy square grids, then cut out the big Winnie and Walter LOVE out of graph paper! I like the pretty look of the thin blue lines and the white squares. It reminded me of a sweet little love doodle sketched in a notebook!
