Some Crafty Goodness...

Hey all, haven't been here for a while, but we've been super busy lately. Just thought I'd pop in a share a few things we've been working on.

I'm going to enter into my favourite Scrappy Store's challenge too :) All the supplies are from there, so might as well! Scrappin Great Deals is my local Scrap Store and they're awesome... they ship too, (although I'm around the corner so have no need for shipping), so if you haven't checked them out, you really should... they have an amazing selection!

Here's some cards Kelly and I have been working on...

Character Cafe New Release Blog Hop

Hey's blog hop time, time to show off all our new releases.

You should have just come here from Angie E.'s blog...if not then you better go back and start at The Cafe Store so you don't miss anything.

The prize this Hop is 4 June New Release Images and a $5.00 gift certificate for the store!! Make sure you leave some love at all the DT blogs in order to be eligible for the prize. We are offering a freebie along the hop and if you make something with it and enter our blog hop challenge you could win a chance to be our guest designer for the month of July!!

Don't forget about the discount code good for 25% off your purchases at the store until Friday June 11th at midnight.

Now for my project....ummm well it's not quite finished, Kendra and I were scrambling to get our images finished up. I just finished this one this afternoon. We scanned it and then had to do more fixing up anyways...I will be back tomorrow with my completed card. Here are a few pics of what I did so far. The image is called "The dock", it would be perfect for a Father's Day card.

I used my water colour pencils and tore the edges then inked with brown and then added a little of black to get a burnt edge effect. The cardstock colour doesn't show well in these pics, but it's a navy blue linen and I embossed with crystal
embossing powder some fish, here is a close up of that.
Pop back in later to see my finished card.
From here you go to the lovely & talented Rachel
Enjoy the rest of the hop!!

The Character Cafe New Releases - Meet the Wiggies!

Hope you all had a fabulous New Year and managed some relaxing "me" time in there somewhere (I tried unsuccessfully!)

The Character Cafe is releasing 8 great images for January and I'm here to share with you "The Wiggies"... I just love how these guys turned out. Kelly and I have been talking up a storm how many little forms of these guys we could have and it's just so fun. I hope you love them as much as I do because I really want to expand their "world"!!!!

If you've just arrived here, you didn't miss much of the hop.... Not sure why we did this, but out of habit, we had the start of the hop at The Cafe Store... only, normally, Kelly and I don't necessarily participate, however, in retrospect, this should've been your first stop... SORRY!!!!

I'll go over the details for you to prevent you having to hop over to the store... (but do that after and get some goodies okay?!).

We ask that you...
  • post a comment on all the DT (and our) Blogs
  • at the end, on The Cafe Blog, please let us know what kind of cards/paper crafting you do most of all (i.e. Birthday, Thank you, Scrap pages...)
That's it!!!! We wanted it to be simple since life's been so crazy lately. If you'd like to sign up & follow our blog(s) that would be great too, but it's not required for this hop.

What we're offering...
  • each DT Member (and us) will draw from our comments and offer the image we're working with as a prize
  • Collect the pieces of the code along the way to receive 30% off your entire purchase at The Cafe Store
  • one winner will be drawn to receive 4 of the New Releases (The Wiggies, Oh Lolly Lolly, Puppy Love and Calvin) - some great digital stamps for you to try!
With that, on to my post.... The first piece of the code is "B" (case sensitive)

Now, meet "The Wiggies"...

I let my hubby have some creative input and he put the axe to my buttons, flowers, brads and said that the card was great just the way it was and to add anything would just take away from it... sooooooo, I did just that and although now I want to add some small pearls or something, I do love it regardless.

Card details: Bazzil cardstock, Basic Grey DP, The Wiggies Digital Stamp from The Cafe coloured with Copics and some Sakura Stardust accents. I also used a Fiskars border punch.

Hope you enjoy the hop.... you want to head to Sara's Blog next. The code is good until next Friday and we'll post all the winners when we do our Feature Friday posts as well :)

Happy crafting,

Here's the blog list in case you lose your way...
