Crafter's Cafe....A new challenge

Hello everyone. Hope you are all having a good day. I have been super busy as of late. Lot's of crafty projects on the go, and we are in the process of painting all our kitchen cabinets. The laminate was peeling off most of them and looked really awful.  So we went out and bought some new paint. I tell you it is a very long process when the weather is very damp. It takes days for the paint dry thoroughly. Hoping the sun comes out soon, so that I can put my kitchen back together. But now I digress.

Well it is Wednesday and that means that there is another challenge over at Crafter's Café. This week is another "Anything goes" theme, and we sponsored once again by Rick St-Dennis.

Here is what I came up with.

Hope you like it! I had fun colouring this image.
Don't forget to stop by Crafter's Café and show us your beautiful creations.

Good morning everyone! It's another Wednesday so that means another new challenge over at Fab'n'Funky. This week it is my turn to host the challenge.

This time our challenge will be running for two weeks, and we have three wonderful and generous sponsors.

So this week the challenge is Make it a set. You can make a gift set of cards. Matching card and envelope, matching card and tag or gift bag. The possibilities are endless.

Here is what I came up with. I originally wanted to make a couple of matching cards, but then realised that the cards were two different sizes. (Oops! I made them on different days.)
So I made a matching envie to go along with my card.

Here is my card with the matching envie.

The two card together. Don't you thing they would have gone well together as part of a gift set?
Here are some close ups of the two cards. This week I used the digi stamp set "Hang in There" from Doodle Pantry.

That's all for today. Hope you like them, and don't' forget to link your creative set's over at Fab'n'Funky for your chance to win of three prizes!
Thank you for stopping by.

I know it's been a while.....

But I have been a busy girl. First I made a cake for my girlfriends wedding. (The cake and the heat did not go well together :o( )
Then Jeff and I took photos at her wedding. It took me about three days to touch some of them up in Photoshop. Here are few of my fav's. (yes I have her permission to post them)
The bride and groom

Father and the bride

Bride and groom, one more kiss.

Bridesmaid's bouquet.
It was such a nice wedding. She told everyone to come to the waterfront with their lawn chairs. LOL So everyone huddled around with blankets and lawn chairs on the waterfront, and watched a beautiful and touching wedding.
Well I hope you liked them, I will be back tomorrow with a little something crafty.
Until then I hope you all have a wonderful day!

I ain't square!!!!

At least not this week I am not! Good day everyone! Another Wednesday, so that means another challenge at Fab'n'Funky. And this week our challenge was to not use squares. So I went the easy (and somewhat obvious) route, and made a circle shaped easel card.

This week's sponsor is none other than ....
Now here is my card. I loved this little stamps of A cat in a wine glass. I just had to colour this one up as soon as I saw it!

Hope you all liked it! Please leave a comment, I sure do appreciated it when you do!
Thank you, and don't forget to link your wonderful creations to Fab'n'Funky for a chance to win some wonderful prizes this week!

My heart pieces: Use digi stamp

Sweet dreams dragon!

Good morning everyone! I am so happy to be posting this today. Today is my first day posting something for The Crafter's Café. This week our sponsor is Rick St.Dennis. And our theme is Anything Goes! When I got to look through all their wonderful stamps, I fell in love with this little dragon taking a nap. (besides, hubby loves dragon's too, and his birthday just passed, so this was also his B-D card!)

Here is what I came up with! Hope you like it! Coloured with my Copics.

I tried to get the glimmer mist to show in the photos, but alas it did not, it really gives the card a mystical feel to it!
Thank you for stopping by and seeing me! Your comments are always appreciated, and don't forget to link up you creations over at CCCB, so that you might have a chance at winning a prize!

Today he is ..............

Yup, that's right today my man turns 45 years old.
Happy Birthday Honey!
I love you!
Yes that is him stealing another helping of Lemon Meringue Pie!
As for his cake, this year I let Anize be the decorator. She chose to make a cake with some mice/rats for the theme. So we went with the three bling mice! (Well they are really rats! LOL)
Her inspiration, our little rats and a card that Jeff got from his brother that had a little mouse about to cut into a slice of cheese with a candle on it. The captions says, "time to cut the cheese".
So here it is.
A better look at the mice.

She sculpted two of the mice and the cheese. I did the other mouse/rat.

You can't really see it in the photo, but we even added some texture to the tail, just like our little rats tail. So cute!
