Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges #87 Something Yummy To Eat OR Drink

Greetings everyone!  So glad you took time out of your busy day to stop by.  Today's post is for our current challenge at CC&CC.  We are looking for cards that show Something Yummy To Eat OR Drink.  That's a pretty broad theme!  Lots of possibilities.  Come join us and show us your favorite goodie.

Our sponsor Deedee's Digis is a new one for us, and we really enjoyed using their images.  Mine is called "Lemonade Stand".  I really like her, she so reminded me of summer.  Like many of their images, the papers I used are also included with the digi!  That made it even more fun!  She is colored with my Copics.  I then added the button flowers and the ticket.

Come on over to CC&CC and show us your favorite goodies to eat or drink!

Creative Knockouts Challenge #81 ~ Shaped Card

Hello and welcome.  Today is another challenge over at Creative Knockouts.  We are looking for cards that are shaped.  Our sponsor Meljen's Designs gave us a choice of some great digis for this challenge.  I used this cute little guy called "Birthday Cup Mouse".  I decided to make a star triangle fold which I have never done before.  It was fun and has a lot of surfaces to decorate.  I colored the image with Copic's and mounted him on a die cut.

We would love to have you join us and show us your shaped card!  Hop on over and see the great cards our DT have created to give you some inspiration.  They did a fab job!

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges #86 For A Child

How about having some fun creating a card for a child?!?  I really like to make these types of cards, but I don't get much of a chance to make them as I don't have a lot of small children in my life.  So when I do create one, it is soooo much fun!

Our great sponsor, Bugaboo, is offering 7 FREE digis to the winner of this challenge!  I used their image called "Ladybug Birthday".  What a pleasure it was to work with!  It was colored with my Copics, and I used a die cut for the frame.  Then I added the banner and some cute little buttons and ladybugs.

Come join us over at CC&CC and show us your card creation for a child.  You may even be the lucky winner!

Bunny With Flowers

Happy Sunday blog buddies.  I hope you are having a good weekend.  I have been busy trying to get my Easter cards done.  I have to do them early because of all the cleaning out and packing I am doing at my father's house.  So much stuff has accumulated ~ well I would guess so!  My family moved into the house in 1959!  I would love to get moved to Oregon before the HOT summer sets in here in Phoenix!

ANYHOW. .  .  I tried something new!  I have never done any of the pre-printed cards that come with all the goodies to put together.  I see quite a few of them and really like the way they look.  My blog buddy Jacee does them and they are FAB!  Thanx for the inspiration Jacee!

Today I received an email from Pink Gem Designs and checked out their goodies.  They specialize in these type of cards.  Sooooo, I decided to try one!  I got this cute little guy in a Topper Set, he is called "Bunny With Flowers".  I enjoyed working with the images and doing the layering.  The only set back is you have to cut out all the layered pieces by hand.  Otherwise I really liked it.

I love the 3D look.  It gives it a nice dimension, and it is so easy to do.  Also, the inside piece of the card looks great.  I must say was surprised at the print quality too.  I would have to say that I will do some others.  I will be looking for some nice flower designs!

Thanx so much for stopping by.  I hope you try this if you haven't already, it' a lot of fun and looks great!
