Character Cafe Feature Friday & Blog hop

Hey all-
I promise to get my blog post earlier on Fridays!! I made a card last night and needed to get a picture during the day! I recently bought a photo studio box with lighting so I can do indoor shots! I need to practice working with it.

This week at The Character Cafe was a color challenge by Rachel! She picked some great colors that I knew would be a challenge for me! I was a little nervous but I came up with a plan! LOL

Here is my card:

Cheer set

Stampin Up!

K & G

The wording around the stamp is word art from Microsoft. I also used a sketch from the Joy of Cardmaking! I love this book! It has all the sketches in it from the Joy of Cards.

I colored the Cheer image with Prismacolor pencils & blended it with Gamsol. The pom poms where the white is Stickles but it is hard to tell. I hope that you all will give this challenge a try! The prize is always outstanding & the images are just wonderful!

I also have a card to show you for a blog hop for my friend Heather! She recently had to seperate from Doodle Street but wants to keep her Fresh Brewed shop active. So she is having a few of us do a blog hop for her! I was lucky enough to get some awesome images and had a hard time choosing! I ended up using Decorate the tree with me.

Let me so you now:


Decorate the tree w me from Fresh Brewed designs

DCWV & Bazzil

Pencils & Pens:
Prismacolor & Sugar loaf

Metal Dots, Holiday Times & Stickles

I also used another sketch of course this one from my brand new books Cardmaker's Sketch Book! I love the sketches but the book is done cheaply this time!

Now I will send you to Mary! She has another image to show you! I hope you all support Heather's shop! Be sure to check out her new releases!!!! Also, you have a chance to win a free image here and a grand prize is being offered of $20 for her shop! Now that should make you want to check it out!

I have another card to show you that I made for Doodle Street. We are going through a few changes there so until it is reorganized we are in waiting. I will show you the card I did.

Doodle Street Designs
Brads & Halloween Sticker
This is my first attempt with my Copics! I figured I could use them on a simple image to see how they work! I need to start looking for tutorials! I am taking a Copic Class in Novemeber since I won the prize at ICS for the My Creative Classroom! I was so excited to win!!!! This school has some great classes so check them out!
Okay well busy week for me! I will not blab since I just want to relax. Please check out all the great places! Remember to check out The Character Cafe for a great challenge and chance to win!!!!!! Please give it a try!!!!!
Hugs my friends!
