Coffee of the Day - Bourbon Chocolate Pecan
I want to show you several cards I've made for the Love Fest challenges at Split Coast Stampers using images from Doodle Garden. these images are just as cute as can be! :)
My first card was for a color challenge - use either brown, aqua, and yellow or brown, aqua, and pink. well you know this girl well enough that if told to make a project with pink, I am gonna make a project with PINK! :) so pile on the pink I did!!!
I also used the color palette for a wonderful promo called 'Spread the Love'. my natural is more khaki, so hopefully that is acceptable. in this campaign, we are to reveal our 'blog crush'. I don't think it is any secret that Melissa Phillips is one of my crafting heroes. I so love her beautiful vintage, shabby style. good golly, I even told the world all about it when I was blessed enough to be featured as Moxie Fabber of the Week! I am such a pathetic junkie when it comes to her blog and projects......
image is Doodle Garden 'Hedgie Love 2', paper is Basic Grey Fiction, sentiment is Create with TLC, flower is Prima, heart border die is Memory Box. the butterfly is painted with shimmerz and the balloon is covered in distress stickles. some washi tape, faux stitching, buttons, baker's twine, buttons, and this fun little layered heart complete the card.
The next card was made for a fancy folds challenge. I gave it to Jocelyn, Mick's girlfriend, while she was here over the weekend. she is my coffee buddy! :) she also loves all things purple, so it was fun to make this for her!!!
image is Doodle Garden 'Rise and Shine', (just HAD to get that image!), sentiment is Create with TLC, papers are Basic Grey Soleil. card is a center stair step, which I had never made before. edges of main image are coated in distress stickles. flower is a gorgeous Prima that was sent to me by Barbara. have been hoarding it and some of the others she sent, but since the card was for Jocelyn, I knew I could use it. tee hee!
Tomorrow I will have a special post, so I hope all of you will stop back by. it marks the one year anniversary of the shooting at our high school. lots of things are planned here in our small community, starting today. it's a very bittersweet time.
