Can You Say Monochromatic?

Good morning, hope all is well with you.  Today’s Friday and that means Feature Friday with The Character Cafe’Diane is our hostess with the mostess this week and given us the challenge of doing a monochromatic card.  Now, I’ve never done one of these so this was very challenging for me.  So here’s mine!


Sorry it’s not the best picture, I seem to have misplaced my camera, and had to use my scanner.  This is the first time I’ve used it for anything like this, so please forgive me!!!  I chose to use pink since it’s my favorite color and a color I seem to use with everything.  Now I did color my image with all pink, but you don’t have to.  You can color your image as normal and then use the same color of papers and accessories.  So head over to The Cafe’ Blog and check it out!!!  Also make sure you check out my other DT members to see their creations for the week!

TCC Feature Friday Color Challenge

Good morning, hope all is well with you.  I get to host the Feature Friday challenge over on The Cafe’ Blog.  I decided to go with a color combo that I just recently used on another card.  My challenge to you is to use the colors Pink, Blue and Yellow.  It can be any shade of them, as long as they are all used.  Here is my project for the challenge.  I decided to make a gift bag.  I used Wendy Wiggie from The Wiggies set.  She is so cute, and you not only get her in this set, you get her whole family, and a saying.


I hope you have fun with this challenge and make sure you use mr. linky on The Cafe’ Blog so that we can visit.  Also make sure you check out the other members of the DT, to see their wonderful creations this week!

Alice In Sassyland!!

alice in sassyland banner

Good morning, hope all is well with you.  It’s finally here-Alice in Sassyland.  You guys are gonna LOVE this release!  Not only is it Alice in Wonderland inspired, it’s VERY sassy!SSD-white-rabbit-#2

This is the Sassy White Rabbit.  Don’t ya just love her!  I colored her very simply.  All the white is angel wing shimmerz.  I used digi papers from Senca Pond


This totally adorable image is the Sassy Chesire Cat!!  Oh my goodness, I had so much fun with this one.  And as I was coloring her, I started thinking that both of these sassy ladies would be great for Halloween also!!


This very bright card is using the Unbirthday Cake image.  I loved using the bright colors for this one, very fun!


And this little adorable image is Young White Rabbit.  I kept this one very simple, and tried to do more of a boyish card.


And this little guy is Young Mad Hatter.  When I got this image I didn’t know what the heck to do with it.  I admit I thought it was kinda creepy.  But after I got it colored up, I decided it was kinda cute.  Again, I tried to do this one more for a boy.  I’m sure you’ll love this release as much as the rest of us, so make sure you join us for the party tonight.  We will be chatting and playing games from 5-7 pm PST.  We will be on the SSD party blog.  So make sure you go to the SSD blog for the link from there.  Also make sure you check out the other Sassy ladies blogs to see their amazing creations.
