For the Aloha Challenge this week over at Kitty Bee Designs, I'm using this image called Espresso Yourself, by Sparkle N Sprinkle, who is one of the sponsors of the challenge. A big thank you to them for giving me this image to create with!
I used a black base with a white panel, then topped it with another panel of Creamy Caramel by SU. The design I have on the paper is a digital one, but I can't remember who the company is! I must have it on a flash drive so I am going to find it and will update this post when i do. Next, I used a few various Copics to add some color to the coffee cup and shading, then cut the image out using MFT's Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX. To keep the card clean and simple, I just added the two little black enamel dots.

This card was made for a friendship swap hosted by Chris, who just so happened to be my swap partner.  I used a cute image called Garden Boots by We Are 3.

To make the card, I used a black base topped with a SU Pretty in Pink panel and some DP from the Backyard Table collection of a Recollections paper pack.  MFT Die-namics Blueprints #27 were used, along with some enamel dots and various Copics for color.

I hope you like your card, Chris!

It's so hard to believe that my oldest granddaughter, Lucy, just turned 13!
With her being a new teenager, I wanted to find an image for her card that I could make into more of a card for a teen, and not just a little girl. I think this image called "Cool Lolly" by The Paper Shelter, is perfect for the look I was trying to get.

Besides the's what else was used for the card.

MFT - All Occasion Sentiments
MFT - Fishtail Flag Frames Die-namics
MFT - Zig Zag Stitched Oval STAX die-namics
Copics - various colors
