The Character Cafe Friday Challenge & blog hop winner

Have you ever been glad it is going to be Friday!!?? I am sure you have but this week seemed like a downer! The end of the week sure is a busy blogging week for me. My Tuesday challenge was changed to Thursday so from Wednesday on my blog changes. I do take a break on weekends unless something interesting happens in Fink Land!

Let me tell you about this weeks challenge! It was given to us by the our talented DT member, Lola! This week was a recipe challenge. Our recipe was 1 designer paper, buttons and ribbon. If you join us this week and are the winner, you will get 2 images, Puppy Love and Relaxing Rosebud, 15% off at the store, recognition and award for your blog!!! So of course you want to play along!!! Remember you do not need to use a Character Cafe image to play along!

Enough babbling, on to my card!

Stamp: The Character Cafe, Paper: Prima cardstock, SU and DCWV, Buttons: Dress it up, Ink: SU, Ribbon: Offray, Gemstones: Darice, Top Note: Sizzix and Floss
Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol

I have been trying so hard to get my coloring right lately! I just feel like it is missing! I changed papers to GP like some of us were talking about and not sure if it is the difference! I did buy some SU papers (from Heather) that I was out of. I can't believe my stupid printer will not take 80 lb. paper!!!! It worked great with Whisper White so I have 2 packs coming! Hopefully that will help or I will go back to You Tube to watch how to use Prismacolor pencils! EEK! Maybe it is just me but I feel my coloring mojo left with my creative mojo!!!! I wish they would come back to me!!!!! I have to say I just think this image is to darn cute and I actually like the card! Wow, this whole week has been my own designs not sketches! Except one because that was our challenge. I am excited about my creative design lately! It does not suck as bad as in the past! LMAO!

Well thanks for visiting! Hope it is a great weekend for all! I know many of us have the cooties so I am gonna pray it will go away! I have had a nagging headache all damn day! Oh well, I am used to them! Hugs all and thanks as always for visiting and supporting me!

My winner of the hop was Poochietoo! Contact me so that I can give you the Cuddle Buddies image! Thanks for playing along with me!
