CCMC200, MOJO239 & PDCC130

DSCF0535-001

Oooh, I’ll tell you, I am really struggling with my creativity this week!  Maybe it’s spring fever!  The temps are rising here in PA!   Anyway, this is for three challenges:  Create with Connie & Mary’s 100th Celebration Challenge (make a celebration card using your favorite retiring DP and add a pennant or banner), the Mojo Monday Sketch 239, and the Play Date Cafe color challenge #130.  Here’s the sketch and the palette:

And here is my square card:

I didn’t like Blushing Bride when it first came out, but I love it now and am so sad to see it go.  This DP is from an old hostess pack, I know it’s already retired, so I’ve already broken the rules!!  But it is so pretty, I just had to use it.  The Crazy for Cupcakes set is retiring and I didn’t use it nearly enough!  I don’t have a BB marker, so I colored my cupcake with ink and a blender pen….not such a great idea when trying to cover a large surface!  I added some Dazzling Diamonds to make it look a little bit better, and some bling to the pennants to draw one’s eye away from the terrible coloring!

Well, I am sure someone having a birthday will enjoy it!   If you have any questions, shoot me an email!   And speaking of coloring:

Two-fisted, no less!  But the best part was that she actually PUT THEM AWAY!  (This is a big deal in our household!)  And isn’t that ruffled-star purple t-shirt a great inspiration piece???

  2. Leann, you did a wonderful job combining both sketch and color challenges. And somebody's going to receive a lovely, lovely birthday card! But...honestly, you had me with the beautiful photo of your granddaughter coloring! What a wonderful, precious, time you must have had with her. We are going to be first time grandparents mid-July so this really caught my eye. We are having a little grandson. This was a lovely post - you haven't lost your creative Mojo I assure you {insert smile}.

  4. I love the Blushing Bride and still use all the retired paper. It needs to be used. I can identify with your drawing the eye away from the coloring. Did that myself. I wish we could stamp together too. My, wouldn't that be fun!

  5. Nothing wrong with your coloring. These colors are great together and your made a beautiful card with them. Cassidy's shirt should be used on someone's inspiration challenge. She is adorable.

  8. LeAnne I agree with what some of the others have said ... I don't see any lack of creativity/mojo. This is a very pretty card. I like the sparkles on the cupcake and the fun pennants with the bling.
    Cassidy's ruffled shirt is the first thing the grabbed my attention as soon as I saw this picture. Such fun. Good for her to actually put her crayons away be herself - very grown up trait to have learned already.
    Have a blessed weekend.
