The Character Cafe Friday

Hey all-

Edited: Winner for TCC blog hop is Craftykitten! You will receive Miss Priss! Congrats!

This is another week that we were to go out in blog land and find challenges! Of course we used our image from The Character Cafe store! I used Stewie Snowman from our October release for this weeks challenge. As I told you all before, we were given a chance to win a prize for doing the most challenges with our images! Well I am no where close to winning because trying to do a card for to many challenges hurts my little brain! It just throws me for a loop! But I am happy to say that I was able to do 5 challenges with this card!

Okay well here is the card!


Stamp: Stewie Snowman from The Character Cafe, Paper: Bazzill, SU, DCWV and GP, Ribbon: SU, Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug, Snowflake: Sizzix, Metal Dots: Best Occasions, Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol and Rhinestones, Sakura Glitter pen (ice cubes), Glitter and Making Memories White paint.

I have to say that I really like this card! Very unusual for me too! I have really felt lately that my coloring has sucked! Afraid my current DT's will kick me off for coloring like a first grader! I just feel something is missing!

The challenge it fits:

Stamp Something
Stamptacular Sunday
Pile it on
Simon Says
Spoon full of sugar-Card sketch

All were either Christmas or winter except for Pile it on which was chipboard and that is my snowflake. I followed the sketch at Spoon full of sugar exactly as it was! I like to do sketches as they are basically to show people you don't have to change them if you don't want to!

I will probably not be posting a lot next week! Basically because it is the holidays but Monday is Antonia's 12th birthday!!!! When did I get old enough to have a 12 year old???? Funny but it was hard for me to have Jack turn 15 and he is not even mine! But after him dating Taylor 2 years and one month, it sure feels like he is mine! Love that kid to death! He is a great boy and they are so cute together! Who would have known when they started dating in 7th (liked each other since 5th) they would still be together in 9th! They are always here under close supervision! Jack and Antonia recently made a gingerbread house together. He treats her so well! Anyway then you have Christmas and New Years plus my father in laws birthday New Years Eve! It is a shame because I try not to rip Antonia off for her birthday but with Christmas a few days away you almost have no choice. My fil gets ripped off too but he says it is okay because he does not want to celebrate b-days anymore! Wants it to be just another day!

Well I am gonna go since it is 1:04 a.m.! Have a great weekend! As usual please stop by the Character Cafe gals to see their creations. They links are in my sidebar and very easy to find just look for the title of TCC! Trust me they rock!!!!

Hi Fink, love your snowman in a bucket, made me smile. My little girls coat was edged with glitter glue, just put in on nice and thick, takes a bit longer to dry but work it for the effect. Have a nice day. Hugs
