TCCCB – Layers or CAS with Yellow

Hello, welcome to another mid-month challenge with The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog! And, it’s our first challenge of 2019! We’re glad you’re back for another exciting year.

Twice a month we roll out fantastic challenges for your to play along with and we work with great sponsors so you get to see art from a wide variety of talented artists.

For 2019, we will have dual themes all year. This means you have two great choices every challenge! Our challenge this fortnight is either Layers or CAS with Yellow. Let’s get inky!

The sponsor I’m working with this challenge is My Besties. This image is called Slinky Lil Hen. I’m not sure if I was going for layers or CAS with yellow on this one. I think I got “layers with yellow”! This one was made using the sketch over at Mojo Monday (#506).

But, I also have a second card this challenge. Our second sponsor is Rick St. Dennis and I chose to Layer it Up with this great Father’s Day Turtle. Did you know RSD almost has a turtle for every month?? Do I hear calendar???

Come on and play in this great challenge! You can link up your entry over at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog from now through the end of the month. Come and check us out!

Dueling Darlings – January

I am so excited to start another year with the Dueling Darlings!

This months’ Diva kit was sent by Judy. The theme she and Donna came up with is encouragement and the image (a lovely image!) was “Flutterby” from Paper Pretties. I loved the beautiful paper, so I had to make two this time!

Here’s the first card. The sketch was loosely based on the Try Stamping on Tuesday sketch this week (#390). I changed a couple of elements in my crafting.

I fell in love with this pretty green patterned paper, so had to make a second card. l loved that gem ribbon too!

Super happy that I’m off to an on-time start this year. Let’s hope it continues!

Mystery Image Swap – January 2019

I’m back with the 2019 Mystery Image Swap. Away we go again, with 12 great months, 12 great friends, 12 great images!

Imke always leads us off in January and this year she chose a Unity Stamp called “Sweetness” .

During my time off at Christmas, I got it inked up, so I’m happy to be able to post it here on my blog IN January! I’m off to a great 2019 start.

I’ll be back next month with our next image!

Sketch Saturday #545

Hello Everyone! I am super excited to be starting a new year with the Sketch Saturday team.

Every Saturday a new sketch is posted and you have until Friday the following week to enter for a chance to win a prize from their terrific sponsors. We hope you’ll come play with us!

Here is our first sketch of 2019, challenge #545:Our sponsor this week is Heartcraft Paper. They have some beautiful digital stamps and sent over Baby Draco for us to use for this weeks’ sketch. Here is my take on the sketch.

I actually made two cards with this image. I was so intent on getting my 2019 projects started that I completely forgot about the SKETCH part of Sketch Saturday. Whoops. So, here’s my second card today as well.

I hope you come and play along with us! One lucky challenge entrant will win a prize from our sponsor (and then maybe you’ll own this adorable stamp too!). Head on over to the Sketch Saturday blog to link up your new creation using the sketch. Good luck!

DDD November 2018

Yes, another late post. I received my final Dueling Darlings kit after the November 15th post date and just never got it crafted up before Christmas! Now that I’m on a mission to close up my 2018 projects, I checked out the great kit Laura Jean sent.

She sent an aviation theme and these great “vintage-y” papers. So, I pulled out my distress tool and my distress inks and had some fun. I had a theme/idea going in my head. I love the way it turned out and hope you do too.

I am along for the ride in 2019 with the Divas and Dazzlers once again. Can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with – and I can’t wait to figure out what kit Paola and I will send out this March!
