But then we have events like the Valentine's Digi Day at the Latte Lounge and it all comes together!
The Stamping Boutique and I am forever grateful to Tracey for that opportunity!
This project, using "Cupcake" from The Stamping Boutique was made for the Red White and Pink Challenge that I am hosting at the Latte Lounge.
The challenge is being sponsoroed by JLJ Designs and the prize is a FULL pack of printable digi papers called "Hearts and Flowers". I used THREE of the papers from that kit in my project!
Thank you Jennifer for sponsoring my challenge and allowing me to play with your pretty papers!
Fresh Brewed Designs is truly a pleasure and she is one of the kindest, most generous and caring people on the planet. I am proud to call her a "REAL" friend, not an online acquaintance!
The image used in this project is called "Daisy the Elephant" and she is one of the many new releases at Fresh Brewed Designs.
She has been entered into the "Valentine's Punch" Challenge at the Latte Lounge hosted by Rhonda.
I don't have any Valentine's themed punches, so I used what I have and I love how this card turned out!
So very H-A-P-P-Y!
Melissa's "Valentine with No Hearts" challenge.
I planned from the beginning to use this Grumpy Gretchen "Big Deal Birthday" image from Digis With Attitude!
But once I colored her and got started, I hit a brick wall.
Ever have that happen? Just NO IDEA where to go with it?
I decided to go with embossing and a metal eyelet and mounted the image at a jaunty angle to give it "character"... probably not my "best" work, but I LOVE my new Sizzix embossing folder and think it adds a lot to a Clean and Simple card!
I used an SVG file that I picked up at Take out Tuesday from DtsArts. I flipped it, welded it, cut it and made a shaped card!
When Jennifer said she was planning to host a "Sweets for the Sweet" Challenge, I knew exactly what I was going to do and it turned out exactly how I planned!
You can't really see the sheen from the picture, but the "Glass" part of the gumball machine is coated in Glossy Modge Podge and it feels so smooth and "Glassy"... I love this one!
One of my "duties" on the DT for the Latte Lounge is helping to organize and coordinate events, like Digi Day.
Putting this one together was SO FUN and I can't wait til the next one!!
We managed to rustle up FIVE sponsors for our games and challenges and we are eternally grateful to:
The Stamping Boutique, JLJ Designs, Fresh Brewed Designs, Digis With Attitude! and Glitterbabe's Art
for your kindness and generosity!!
I hope you'll be able to find a way to play along with us!
