Something yummy for my tummy!!

Yep, that's the theme, something yummy to eat or drink, over at Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge. I love that the challenge allows you to make any type of card as long as it has something to do with food or drink. Donna went with a winter hello while Deedee made a generic hello! Funny how they both made "hello" cards that had to do with food!! I guess pizza and hot chocolate are good things to bring friends together for a good chat. Come play with us we would love to see what type of card you make that has to do with food!

Trying new things with Donna

I couldn't decide if the title should be "Trying New Things" or "I think I can, I think I can". When Donna sent me these cards she explained that while making the cards..."if it could go wrong it did!" She had to make these cards several times until she got the end results she wanted. I'm so glad she didn't give up!!

One of Donna's New Year's resolution was to try new techniques so she tried Bokeh. 

Which I had no clue what that was so I looked it up on Wikipedia - is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens.[3][4][5] Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light"

I think she did an amazing job trying out a new technique. I love the colors she used as they are perfect for Easter. If you want details on how this was done please go to Donna's Blog - Indiana Inking.

Then she just decided to keep making Easter cards and came up with these:

 I love the flower patterned paper with this bunny! I also love that bunny has glittered ears!

I like how she did a block background to continue with the blocked theme in the image.

This should definitely get you in the mood for Easter and give you some inspiration. But if you need more come back tomorrow as I have more Easter inspiration from the Design Team.

Thank you Sarah W for leaving a comment last week about sending a card to previous co-worker. So glad you brightened someone's day. Send me an email ( and I will get you set up with your surprise!

Hope your week continues to be spirit lead and God filled!

Thank Heaven...

Thank Heaven that the Lord sent his only son to die for our Sins and he created the miracle of babies! That is what Tamara and Deedee are celebrating today.


And if you need a last minute St. Patrick's Day card Mary H. has just the one you can lift.

Have a blessed week and hope you find some time to craft!
