TCCCB – Feminine

Welcome back to another challenge with The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

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.

Our challenge this fortnight is Feminine. Just in time to celebrate the mothers and other special women in our life.

For this challenge, I am working with My Stitch Back in Twine. The image that caught my eye was this cool Flower Bunch. They remind me of Forget-Me-Nots, which remind me of my grandmother, and in turn, my mother. So, here’s my happy mother’s day card which will likely find it’s way to her this year.

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 14th of the month. Come and check us out!

 

Mystery Image Swap – April 2016

Barely made it with my Mystery Image Swap for April! And, I was the one who selected the image!

My choice this month was The Greeting Farm “Double Cupcake Anya” and here’s what I did with her. I wanted to use bright colors, since this is such a fun image.

Just a few days until I find out what Susanne picked for us for May! The question is, will I have it done in time for my regularly planned post day? Wait and see!

Two Paper Divas Thursday!

Hello! Welcome to another week with Two Paper Divas.

It has been SO busy this month that when I sat down at my craft desk to make this post. I really had no idea what to make, or even what I wanted to make. Tired! Luckily, the worst of the busy season is gone as of today and it went better than an average year…so I can’t really complain, right?

Anyway, this beauty of a set, You’ve Got Style, has been hanging around my desk since it was released a couple of months ago. I love the set, but just haven’t found the right inspiration to create with it until now. Here’s what I came up with:

Simpler than what I planned, but I love it! I’ll definitely be back playing with this set shortly to see if I can make my other vision into some sort of reality. Stay tuned!

Have a good week, crafters. See you soon.

FTHS April Image

Oh boy, this month just flew by! This month, the image for the Progressive Challenge with From the Heart Stamps is Time to Bloom. This is such an interesting set! And, I had fun coloring it up. I may have to use this image again soon!

I can’t wait to find out the May image!

Riley & Company – Hug!!!

Hey everyone! The weeks pass by quickly around here. The grass is turning green, the leaves are ready to bloom and the kids are incapable of staying away from the dirt.

But, it’s also time for another Riley & Company challenge and this week we’re featuring Hugs! This card uses the Coffee is a Hug sentiment. And, I carefully inked up half of “I Love You More Than” in order to get this adorable coffee cup in my shaker window.

Don’t forget to check out The Ink Spot, your go-to site for great products from Riley & Company, Cornish Heritage Farms and the Prickley Pear lines of stamps.

And, take a hope through the blogs of the other Design Team members to see their perfectly huggable project!

 

 

Two Paper Divas Thursday!

Hello! Welcome to another week with Two Paper Divas.

This week, I’m playing along with the April challenge! It’s an inspiration challenge this month and you can check out all the details right here on the Two Paper Divas Blog.

For my card, I used the Life’s a Breeze set. The beach balls reminded me of those citrus fruits. The sentiment is from Summer Chillin’, which is a great accessory to have with the Life’s a Breeze set.

You can enter the challenge until April 22nd. If you miss it, then come back next month (second Monday of each month) to see what we’re up to with our creations.

Thanks for stopping by!!

 

TCCCB – What Season are You In?

Hello, it’s the mid-April challenge with The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

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.

Our challenge this fortnight is What Season are You In? With players all around the world, show us what the season is like where you are. Or, just create a card featuring your favorite season.

I’m working with our sponsor Di’s Digi’s this challenge. The sponsor chose the image to work with, which is called “Molly Mouse and Puddles”. Lucky for me, it’s a pretty good reflection of the season around here (though those raindrops could quite easily turn to snow). Usually by mid-April the snow has mostly disappeared and we’re just waiting for it to warm up a bit.

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!
