CDAC Blog Hop

Hi Everyone, I am running a bit behind giving this a shout out, because I had the flu. However, this is exciting... Crafter's Digital Art Center is having their first blog hop! This is a hop of several digital image companies that are coming together to highlight their new releases. You won't want to miss it. You have a chance to win through random drawings a free digi on every blog and a grand prize over at CDAC. The only requirement to win is that you leave a message on every one's blog throughout the hop and that you are a member over at CDAC. Now, of course you don't have to be a member to do the hop. CDAC is free to join this wonderful center for digital art and it has lot of great tutorials and lots of fun people and great challenges as well as some freebies from the companies sponsored there. So I would encourage you to join. You can find the site HERE. Paper Cupcakes will be part of this hop and we can also be found at CDAC as a group, so we would love for you to come by and join us in our group over there. The hop starts next Friday, Oct. 1st and goes through Sunday Oct. 3rd.

Help us spread the word and grab the icon and post it on your blog or even make a posting about it, we certainly would love that! We hop you can carve out some time to make it. Hope to see you there!

Magical Monday - PCC Image & Bling

This weeks challenge over on the Paper Cupcakes challenge blog Patti Nelson brings us this week's challenge of using the freebie "Easy Does It" by Paper Cupcakes and also wants us to use some bling. Easy Peasy and who doesn't love some bling!? I kept my bling a little toned down. I so wanted to make my card lean towards more masculine so I kind of used some masculine bling! LOL.. OK... I am sure there is such a thing a masculine bling, so if you have never seen it before, well you can locate it on my card! :O)

I colored my image with my colored pencils (my fav) and used some scraps out of my big 'ole box of scraps. I just love this Martha Stewart border punch "Gothic Arches" that I used and I had some odd chipboard pieces which is where I got the "dream big" piece. I thought if you could balance that many cupcakes at one time without dropping any you had to be dreaming big. I usually always place my image straight on my cards so I thought I would try tilting it some and I must say I had a hard time leaving it that way initially, but I kept telling myself in the end it would be alright! HA! I think it did turn out alright as well. So what do you think?

Well, thanks for stopping by and realize just how much I love your luvins if you leave some! Also, don't forget to dream a little dream today and if you're going to dream a little dream think twice and dream big!
