TCCCB – Autumn and/or Spring

Hello, welcome to the mid-month 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 Autumn and/or Spring. I’m thinking most of us are going to go with one or the other, and not the “and”. But, maybe you’re just that much more creative than me!

The sponsor I’m working with this time is Creative Bug and I decided to use the image Pumpkin Kins.┬áIsn’t it cute? That of course means, that I have chosen the FALL theme for my project this week. And, here it is:

The sketch comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 (#145) and I’m also going to enter this over at Time Out Challenges (#118), whose beautiful fall pumpkin picture was inspiration for this autumn theme.

So, 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 – September

It’s the 15th again!! Time for another DDD challenge and for once this year, I am ON TIME!

This month’s kit was sent to me from Suzy and the theme was sunflowers. What a great fall theme! I love sunflowers.

She sent a great selection of papers too! Check out my card:

But wait….not only am I on time with ONE card, but I managed to get TWO cards created (yes, I’ll give you a moment to pick yourself up from your chair). Boy, it felt good to get ahead! Here is card #2:

This second card was using the Cheerful Sketches September sketch.

Thanks for swinging by and I’ll see you next month for the newest DDD kit!

Mystery Image Swap – June/July 2018

Looks like I’m working through 2018 Mystery Images two months at a time!!

Right now, I’ve caught up on June and July, three images (since we had a double month in July) of cards to post and send out.

The June selection was from Joanna and she selected an image from Whimsy called Old Fart. Joanna is always generous with her mystery envelope and also sent some paper and a happy birthday die cut along with her image.

What a fun image!

For July, images were selected by both myself and Angie. My image selection was from CC Designs, Welcome Brigitta. I love the bright colors on this creation!

And, Angie’s stamp selection was from a company I’ve never worked with before called Loralie Designs. The image is Sew Happy Together.

We’ll see you again soon for another (double) month of the Mystery Image Swap. I have my August and September images ready to go! See you soon.

Unidentified Image Swap August 2018

Here we go with another round of the Unidentified Image Swap. This is round #39!! Can you believe it?

This round’s image was chosen by Janet and she selected this guy from Whipper Snapper. We were unable to locate a name of the stamp (but he’s still adorable).

I had fun playing with some old papers, and new dies (not THAT new) that haven’t been cracked out of their package yet. Kinda happy with how this turned out!

I can’t wait to see our next image, selected by Carol for October….see you then!
