The Character Cafe Challenge

Hi Everyone! Thanks for coming by today. Wow I cannot believe I haven't blogged all week, guess I've been sooooo busy & I'm afraid it wasn't busy in my craft room either :( I did however work on my project for this week's challenge, which is a recipe challenge to use pink, brown, 2 buttons & tearing or crumbling, here's what I came up with:

A close up:

For this card I used the oh so cute image called Suzie, I'm sure you can see the pink & brown but can you see the tearing, it's just under the image on the bottom. Fun card to make! Be sure to stop over at TCC Challenge Blog & join in this week's prize is Mistletoe Moe & Shelby, a $5 gift certificate to TCC & a blog badge.

A closer look:
For this project I used the oh so cute image from The Character Cafe called Puppy Love. I used two designer papers from the DCWV summer stack, as you can see there are 3 buttons, two up in the right corner & one in the lower right corner & there's 4 flowers in the upper left hand corner. Well anyway I like to try new challenges when I have a chance & I'm so glad I tried this one this week. Thanks again for coming by & have a great weekend!

SMC Challenge Friday!

Wow, it's Friday. I cannot believe how fast the week went, can you? Well it's time for another awesome challenge with Sew Many Cards! This week's challenge is to make a Christmas Project. This is what I came up with:

A bit closer look:

A side view:

Okay this is a Criss Cross Box there's a bag of cookies inside, this makes a great little container for holiday gift giving, I didn't get a chance to make a tag for it but a tag would be perfect on the bag, I think. I used the oh so cute image called Donkey in Bucket, isn't he too cute?

Now to switch gears a bit, here is a card made with a Halloween image from this week's SMC Challenge Sponsor:

A closer look:

This image is called Peek a Boo, too cute don't you think? I used paper from this year's Halloween Mat Stack from DCWV, circle & pinking circle Nestabilities, the star border punch & bling of course :)

Thanks for coming by today & I sure hope you'll join us for this week's challenge, head on over to blog to see what the prize is! Good Luck!

Happy Wednesday

Well I tried to get this posted this morning before I left for work & realized I hadn't downloaded the pictures... I was busy working on my projects for this week's SMC challenge & downloaded them but not the project I wanted to share... go figure. Here's one more "project" made with the other Dahlia image you receive when you purchase the Dahlia with Oval. Here is the "oval":

A closer view of the image:

It's a covered notepad with a pen holder, this time I used the jr. legal pad. I actually made & gave this to my DS's girlfriend today as she goes away to college tomorrow. Sweet girl & not many mother's say that about their son's girls do we ladies?

Anyway be sure to stop by on Friday as I'll have my SMC challenge project & this week's sponsor sample to share as well. Oh I'm also working on a challenge card this week for The Character Cafe. So there's more to come :)

We're Back!

Yes that's right, Sew Many Cards Challenge blog is back open & ready to go! Today's challenge is to use "sewing" in your project. It can be either real sewing (which I don't do) or faux sewing (which is exactly what my project has :) Okay so I used the ever so cute digi from the August VIP images:

A closer view:

A close view of my "faux sewing":

For my sewing I used the Cuttlebug border folder, a Sizzix Tim Holtz Folder & the Eris digi is from the August VIP kit, be sure to head on over to the Sew Many Cards Store to join, it's $10 for the month, excellent deal!

Now on to this week's Sponsor Project for this week Tiffany Doodles is the sponsor & I was able to play with the Dahlia digi, which is way to fun to color:

A closer look:

Is this image no beautiful? As I said it was so much fun to color & come up with this card... I think you can pretty much figure out all the supplies I used, if not please don't hesitate to ask, just leave me a comment & I'll get back to you as soon as I can :)

Thanks for coming by today!

The Character Cafe August Blog Hop!!!

Good Monday Morning to you! If you started the hop at the beginning (The Character Cafe Store) then you should have come from Rachel's Blog.

Although I have to work today it's not so bad since we are having a blog hop :) We are hopping with 2 Sketches 4 You this week TCC is sponsoring this week's challenge! Here's the sketch for this week:

Here's my sample made with one of the new images called Olga:

A closer look:

For this one I used paper from one of the latest Mat Stack's from DCWV, it's a Halloween themed stack. I also used the MS spider web punch, Copic Markers & although the sketch didn't call for a sentiment it looked too plain to me so I added the Happy Halloween. Well Olga sure doesn't look like a mean witch, does she? Hope you liked the sample.

Now be sure to head on over to Georgia's Blog & if you can we'd love for you to join in on this week's challenge! I'm sure there are awesome prizes to be won, the last stop on the Hop them is the TCC Challenge Blog!

Thanks for coming by, hope you have a great day!

TGIF and a Sneaky Peeky...

Hi there & happy Friday! Hope you've had a great week. Mine wasn't too bad, had to work all week & tonight the DH & I have to travel to pick up our DD from band camp, she's been there since Wednesday morning busy working. This is an annual thing & next year will be our last as she'll be a "senior", yes a "senior" yikes ... it's amazing how fast they grow :( Anyway enough of my gibbering... today I have The Character Cafe's sneak peek of their latest releases, it's a sneak peek only because the blog hop is scheduled for Monday so that it coincides with the 2 Sketches 4 You weekly challenge. So my sample for the hop on Monday will be using the sketch. Here's a peek:

Can you guess what it possibly could be? The ladies at TCC did it again the latest images are too cute! Anyway I'm sure I'll have other projects to share this weekend but be sure to stop on back Monday for sure to see the image in it's entirety! Have a great day, thanks for coming by!
