Chocolate, Coffee & Card Challenges #100 ~ CELEBRATE

Hello friends.  I can hardly believe that CC&CC is on
I was a DT member for the very first challenge at CC&CC, and at challenge #34 I became the owner and coordinator for the blog.  It has been a FAB experience!  I have had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful gals from all over the world who served as DT members and helped to make CC&CC the fun place it is today to come and create.
I thank them all!

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter.  I chose a special image to showcase our 100th.  It is called "Seeking Inspiration".  I loved that I could put my sentiment on her canvas.

I am also celebrating the news that my new home will be completed around the end of November, YIPEEE!  Then it is the big move to Oregon!  Because I am really starting to pack things up, and my house here is on the market, this will be my last card until. . .  I don't know when, lol!  Probably the 1st of next year.  I will be so busy getting settled in, I just won't have the time to create.  I am REALLY going to miss it.  But I just keep dreaming of finally having a CRAFT ROOM!  That is a real first for me, and I can't wait!  In the meantime, I will still be running things at CC&CC for our challenges.

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank all of YOU for your support of my blog and your kind comments about my creations.  I have made so many friends and am thankful for each and everyone of you!  Hopefully I will be able to visit you from time to time.  Just know that you are in my thoughts and I can't wait to return here full time.  God Bless, much love, BIG hugs and

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges #99 ~ Feminine & Fancy

Hello blog friends, good to have you stop by!
I haven't had much time for card making lately, and I had to quit as DT  member at Creative Knockouts.  I'm so busy with getting the house on the market and building the new one that my spare time is very limited.  I will be going back up to OR next week to meet with the contractors at my lot for the final details.  Should be interesting!  Also will be having to pack up my crafting supplies soon, boo hoo!  I sure will miss it!  No hand made cards for friends and loved ones this Halloween or Thanksgiving.  I might get a few done for Christmas if I get settled into my new house in time, but I don't count on it!

ANYHOW, on to my card for CC&CC!  Feminine & Fancy, love that theme!  We have the perfect sponsor for this challenge, A Day For Daisies.  They have the most beautiful images!  I used "Powder Room" for my card and did it in a monochromatic style.  I love the image, she looks very "Art Deco" era to me.

I colored her with my Copics and did several layers of papers, die cuts and then added some bling, pearls and roses.

I apologize for not getting around to visit all my blog buddies.  Hopefully I will be able to get some visiting time in soon.  I haven't forgotten any of you!  Hugs!
