CYP-Dotty for Stripes?

It's bittersweet as this is my last card for the Craft Your Passion Design Team.  What a fun year it has been and what a great group of crafters!  I'm going to miss them terribly.  But it's time for new crafty adventures and there will be a whole new team (plus some familiar faces) to be inspired by starting next week.

We've got a super fun theme this week-one of my very favorites.
Stripes and Polka Dots

Time for some fun patterned paper!  Bugaboo is sponsoring the challenge this week and I used a super cute digi from them called "Ava and Deacon Friends Swing."

The yellow light in my kitchen didn't want to cooperate, so the whites look cream colored.  They're white, I promise!  I'm going to give this to my best friend-my hubby.  I even colored the people to look like us, but I wish my messy hair would be that cooperative.  Hope you join the fun at Craft Your Passion this week.

Add Some Color

I'm sick of winter.  It's far too gray.  So I pulled out my most colorful paper and new stamps for these cards.

Paper-Basic Grey, Stamps-Paper Smooches, Coloring Medium-Spectrum Noir

Paper-Basic Grey, Stamps-There She Goes, Coloring Medium-Spectrum Noir and Ranger Distress Ink

It's time for some new adventures.  My DT terms end next week and so I decided to try something new.  I've opened an Etsy shop for my greeting cards.  These are the first two in the shop!  You can see them for sale HERE.

MIA no more!

I've been gone for a bit.  Computer trouble-grrr...  I'm always astounded to realize how much I depend on technology once it goes down.

I feel really bad that my Craft Your Passion posts haven't been put up for the past two weeks.  I had to take the photos on my phone for the challenge, but couldn't upload them to my blog.  Thankfully, I've finally got the bugs mostly figured out, so I'm back!

This week's challenge is sponsored by Kenny K and the theme is

You still have 24 hours to play along if you want to join the fun.

And just because I spent hours coloring, here's last week's challenge card:

CYP #195-bordering fanciness

Eep!  It's Wednesday and I was supposed to post this on Monday.  Christmas break spoiled me too much and now that school's back in full swing, I can't seem to stay caught up.  This week's Craft Your Passion's challenge is
Fancy Borders

I used a cute image by Stitchy Stamps called Teddy N Me.

I'd say where the other supplies are from, but they're from my scrap pile so I'm not sure.  The stamp is by Hero Arts.  Be sure to join the fun at Craft Your Passion this week.
