TMITA "Recipe Challenge" Last blog of the hop

I hope you have enjoyed this hop!! If you arrived from Leigh Anne's blog and have visited all 9 other blogs; you have now arrived on the last blog of the hop. If you did not arrive from Nilla's you will want to start at the beginning of the hop which is here; as not to miss anything!

The image that I bring you is called "Afternoon Tea" I truly love this image and think it is very versatile. I made this card for a very dear friend of mine for her birthday. This is actually a set of 3 images and I have only used 2, the other is a single flower. I cut the cup and set it up on pop dots and set it somewhat in front of the pitcher as to give it more dimension. The sentiment is computer generated. I colored it with my Bic Mark-its.

Also, we have a "Magical Monday" going on this week as well. It is our normal weekly challenge with a free image. I afraid with the business of the hop it might get lost in the shuffle.

Free Digi - Sweet Trouble

This weeks challenge over at TMITA was to create a "Clean and Simple card with limitations on what you can use (e.g., "NO" brads, bows, or anything that would make it challenging to mail) and a color requirement PINK, of course, must appear on your card somewhere."

Soooo, since I have been wanting to do a easel card I chose to do that and then I kept my surface pretty flat. I added a fairly flat trim and then punched some snowflakes to match. I really love this style of card and I will be makikng many more of these and they are really simple as well, but I have to say it was hard to keep things flat and easy for mailing! I also used the embossing folder on one side and carried my pp up into my card that was on the base where my sentiment is. I drew a circle on my snowflakes and added some pink stickles. I also added some diamond stickles on her hat fluff. I also drew little circle on my container holding the candy canes to jaze it up a little to match the pp somewhat. I thought this image turned out really cute all colored up and I don't think she looks like much trouble either!! but then again, I don't own her! hehe

ok.. it is now 1:30AM and I am dead tired so that is it for me for this day!! Have a sweet day!
