Blessed Card {Feeling Crafty}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Blessed card, handmade, pink, orange, yellow, mauve, kraft

I haven’t made a card in a while, and couldn’t resist wanting to play with colors and the idea of the word banners I used on this Christmas banner I just posted yesterday!

I heat embossed on this card, and have been wanting to do more with dry embossing. So, I really can’t wait for tonight’s FREE scrapinar all about embossing! Have you signed up yet? Lain Ehmann and Becki Adams will be helping us imagine the “embossibilites” using embossing folders! The event is at 6pm PST, but even if you can’t make it live, you’ll have access to the replay for a limited time — but you have to sign up in advance! Click HERE to sign-up!

And besides the awesome free scrapinar tonight, have you heard about True Scrap 6? Fired up doesn’t even begin to describe my anticipation for the event coming in October. Eight classes with top-notch crafty instructors {get ready to swoon!}, virtual make-n-takes, live chat with the instructors and scrappy friends from around the world, eternal access to class recordings, and the best part? All from the luxury of my own home. Heck, I can stay in my jammies all day if I wanted! Ready to join me? Click HERE to find out more and get on the early-bird list to get a 30% off coupon…

As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope to *see* you in the chat room in the free embossibilites class tonight and at True Scrap 6 in October!

Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! Make sure not to miss any future posts by signing up for the Clicky Chick Creates email list here! You’ll get a great little freebie download as my thank you 🙂

Fray // Mexican Palm {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Mexican Palm Tree, frayed, B&W, abstract, natureThe minute I saw the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Fray, I immediately thought of the Mexican Palm tree that was in the front yard of the house my husband and I called home for 13 years.

I’ve written and posted about that tree here, but how could I resist sharing these photos again?! And in that old post, I share the story about the tiny leaf protruding from the edge of a planter in our front yard…
