The Crafter's Cafe Challenge # 116 - Food or Drink 29 April, 2015

Two great sponsors this week

Beansie Doodles


Oddball Art Co

And I was so lucky to get an image from each sponsor this week.

From Beansie Doodles - "Sexy Bunny" and from Odball Art - "Frazzled Monday"

I have coloured the images with Copic pens and placed in my recipe journal.  I love me coffe black and my chocolate dark.   Never have a problem getting up and going to work on a Monday, but have always struggled with Thursday, no idea why!.

Frazzled Monday is a fun page in my journal and Sexy Bunny is me on a Monday lol. with a dark chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Frazzled Monday became Frazzled Thursday.

Imagine That Month Challenge - My Sailmate

I decided to use the precoloured images this month, creating a topper and inside design digitally.

I used the ship and the waves multiple times to create the front, using one of the sentiments.  Inside I used the sailor girl and boy together with the lifebouy and another of the included sentiments

Once printed I scallop cut the images and layered them onto blue cardstock, a card for someone going through a rough time.

ACN Monthly Image Challenge - April, 2015

This month there was a Creative Flower sheet.  I printed out the flowers in 3 sizes, coloured with copic pens.  The 3 layers of the sunflower were layered, the other flower had a centre which I thought would look good standing up.

After colouring this flower and fussy cutting the 3 layers, I then cut across the top and down the sides of the centres.  This left me with a piece the could stand up and a hole in which I could thread the other layers.  (bit hard to explain),   I wanted bright vibrant colours, we are heading into winter, so this is when I start to go wild with colours and dreaming of Spring.

I placed the flowers on different coloured cardstock, adding some netting, lace and ribbon to complete the card.
