Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges #47 ~ Layout

Welcome all!  Thanx for stopping by.  I must apologize to my blog friends for not being in touch lately.  I am up in Oregon with my daughter and her husband.  Mindi, my daughter, is having a very rough time of things with her health.  She just had surgery and I am helping out.  The problem has been ongoing for several years now, but we continue to keep the faith that she will regain her health.  When your child is ill, no matter their age, it is always difficult.  She will always be my little girl.

With that said, on to a happier subject ~ our newest challenge at CC&CC.  Our theme for the next two weeks is a lovely layout. I hope you enjoy working with it!  

 We have two great sponsors, so twice the chances to win!  Our first sponsor The Robin's Nest, is giving one winner a $10 gift certificate to use on their site.  And another winner will receive 4 free digi images from Crafty Sentiments.  Nice! 

I used the digi image "Pat Sitting By The Water" by Crafty Sentiments.  It is an adorable image!

I hope you take the time to visit CC&CC and join in on our challenge.  Be sure to check out our DT's great designs.  Also, take a look at the wonderful entries!  We so appreciate your support.  While you are there, check out the left sidebar to grab our logo for your blog too!
Happy Crafting!

A.R.T.Challenge #12 ~ Ribbons & Pearls

Hello to all!  Time for our weekly challenge at A Random Thursday.  This should be one that you will enjoy, especially if you like pretty things.  Ribbons and pearls go lovely together, so here is you chance to to use them.

I kept my card more on the clean and simple lines rather than going more frilly.  I think it worked out pretty well!

Hop on over and see what our designers have created to inspire you.  Then, we would love to see what have for us!  See you there!

It's always hard for me to make a sympathy card.  Saying good bye to a loved one is never easy.  I hate to see my friends and loved ones suffer in their grief.  I know it is a part of life, but that doesn't make it any easier.  This card is for a super lady friend whose wonderful mother passed away.  I hope that it at least helps to let her know that she is in my thoughts and prayers.

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge #46

Oh YUM!  Time for a delicious challenge at CC&CC.  Our theme is "Sweet Treats!"  I LOVE deserts, so this challenge was perfect for me!  

We were given some super images by Doodle Pantry to use, and they were fun!  The set is called "Decadent Deserts", and you can even get some great matching digital papers!  

I used one of the digital papers for my background, and I chose the delicious looking cheesecake for my card.  It is colored with my Copics, and I added some Liquid Applique on the whipped cream for some depth and yummyness!

So, are you ready to whip up something delicious for this challenge!?!  If you are, be sure to join us at CC&CC!

A.R.T. Challenge #10 ~ Sketch

It's Thursday, and that means it's time for another fun challenge over at A Random Thursday!  This time we have a lovely sketch for you, take a look!

The sketch is such a clean and simple one, so I tried to keep my design to a minimum.  Sometimes that is hard to do!  I stamped the image and sentiment, embossed the page, then added a bit of trim to the bottom.

Come and join us for this fun challenge at A.R.T.!

Here we go with another fun challenge at CC&CC.  Take a look at this great color combo we have for you:

I really like these colors, so many possibilities!

Our sponsor is the fab 
I have used the image Pirate Penny, a real cutie!  I used a piece of printed paper with a map on it for the background, and added an "X" marks the spot, a pirate flag, key for the treasure chest and a compass coin.  Also lots of distress inked edges for an aged look.  I colored the image with my Copics.

I sure hope you stop by CC&CC and join us for this fun challenge.  We would love to see what you create with this great color scheme!
