Unidentified Image Swap – February 2019

Hello Everyone! It’s time for the next round of the Unidentified Image Swap, the first of 2019.

The image for this round was chosen by Terry Serman and is a Stampin’ Up image called Country Home. I loved this image, because it gave me a chance to practice coloring a metal object. I’m very happy with how it turned out. I planned the flower colors to match my paper selection too.

The next round of this swap is in April, so I’ll see you then with the next image.

Christmas Crazy Swap Kit

I have been working to clean up a few of the Christmas Crazy swap packages from last year. I think I had two outstanding, including the kit exchange in July/August. Michelle sent me this fantastic kit with adorable images and papers. I decided to go online for some inspiration for these creations, drawing inspiration from some of the creations I found.

This card uses some of the great floral embellishments that were used in the kit. I just adore that adorable cat!

Here is the second card with the kit. I had fun popping out that middle section!

Here’s my re-creation of some of the great circle dies sets that are out there right now. I don’t have any, so just created my own!

And, here’s the last card. Love them all! Aren’t these papers fantastic?

Michelle, thanks so much for sending a great kit!

TCCCB – Fairytales or ‘F’

Hello, welcome to the February 1st 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 challenges for 2019 always a feature an option! Do one, the other or both. Today’s challenge is Fairytales or ‘F’. Five things? Fancy folds? Frogs?

The sponsor I’m working with this challenge is a favorite of mine and it’s Dr. Digi! And for this challenge, I found this great BBQ Dragon.

I’m not exactly sure what makes a fairytale, but one of my favorite books as a kid was Herbert the Timid Dragon. Poor Herbert got nervous when threatened and had a tendency to couch and wheeze and some everyone out of the way. Of course, he had a run in with a particularly nasty princess who was MUCH braver than him! So, this guy with his chicken reminded me of Herbert.

I did also choose to go with the dual theme this week. Those clouds on my card are made of FELT, in addition to the FIRE element.

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 middle of the month. Come and check us out!
