Feature Friday – Boo Witchy




Well, I’m only an hour and 20 minutes late on this post.  Oops!  I remembered yesterday, printed my image and then forgot again…until about 12:05 when I was still 15 minutes from home!  *sigh*  You’d think I’d have tons of time now that I’m home alone all day, right?  Uh, nope!  ;o) 

For this card, I used:

  • BooWitchy – The Character Cafe
  • Copics – C7, YR07, 100, E33, E99, YR09, C3, E50, E53, YG17 AND R27
  • Prima Flower
  • Brad with Orange Center
  • Black Ribbon
  • Patterned Paper – The Paper Studio All Seasons

I don’t think it turned out too bad for a 30 minute card!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see you soon!!!

Sadly enough, this is the last blog hop for our Design Team term with The Character Cafe. Kelly & Kendra have told the DT members that if anyone wants to stay to let them know. I told them I’d like to stay if they’ll have me – LOL!

Altered Storage Tin




For today’s Feature Friday for The Character Cafe, I have chosen to do an altered storage tin that I am using to store my Cuttlebug embossing folders.  It was REALLY simple to do!  I colored this flower last week and ended up not using it on my project.  I’ve slept a little since then, so I couldn’t tell you which Copic colors I used.  Sorry!!! 

I got the lunchbox tin at Michaels.  It was about $6 and I used a coupon.  The polka dot ribbon is Colorbok 5/8” ribbon.  All the colored and patterned paper is by American Crafts.  To adhere the paper to the tin, I used Scor Tape.

Please make sure you stop by our other DT members to see what they have in store for you this week! 

  • Sara
  • Mary
  • Heather
  • Steph
  • Shelley
  • Elaine
  • Tesa

    Thanks for stopping by!  Please check back again as I hope to get “rested up” and back into the crafting groove very soon.  :o)

    Yee-haw birthday card…TCC Feature Friday


    For this weeks Feature Friday, I decided to go with this “Yee Haw” sentiment from The Character Cafe.  I think it turned out pretty cute and some male “cowboy” type just might like this one! 

    Here is what I used:

    • Sentiment – The Character Cafe
    • Cowboy – Viva Las Vegas Stamps
    • Patterned Paper – The Paper Studio “The Basics”
    • Buttons & Ribbon – from my stash
    • Dimension – Paisley Cuttlebug Folder
    • Copics – E21, E50, B24, B32, E27, E33, R27, R29
    • Brown Paper – American Crafts Neopolitan

    You can probably see the distressing on the brown paper, but I just took a pair of scissors and scraped over the top of the embossing to rough it up a bit.  I guess I’m going to have to raid the hubby’s tool box to get me some sandpaper.  ;o)

    Thanks for stopping by!
