Anything but a Card Challenge

We have a new challenge at The Latte Lounge this week - anything but a card. The rest is up to you! This challenge will last four weeks and the winner will be announced January 10th.

I have two projects for this challenge. The first is a decorated notepad featuring Natalie fromThe Stamping Boutique and papers from JLJ Designs. The notepad was in the Michael's dollar bin. I colored the image with Copics and added a Jolee snowflake sticker. I think this will make a nice Christmas present.

I also have some Christmas tags featuring this yummy image from Fresh Brewed Designs. I colored the image with Copics and used Kraft paper and digi paper from JLJ Designs.
Rhonda has a make-a-scene challenge until Thursday. Hope to see you at The Latte Lounge!


Happy Monday!!!

Good morning everyone,
I realized last night that I hadn't drawn a Cynthia in a long time so I decided to do a Valentine image of her. I called her, "I love you this much, Cynthia" I'm still working on that Valentine's Day line! Don't give up on me! LOL!
It's cold and snowy here in Indiana.
I hope you all have a nice and warm day.

Wacky Wednesday Update

Hey all! It's Wednesday!
Time for the Wacky Wednesday update!!

For the past few weeks, participation in the Wacky Wednesday challenges has been pretty low.

Considering the fact that there are about 1,000 challenges running online right now, it's understandable!

I get confused too!

How do you decide which ones to enter?

There just are not enough hours in the day to do all the projects I'd like to!

Plus, with Holiday Season on us, crafting time is getting even more scarce!

So, we're going to take a small Holiday Break from Wacky Wednesday challenges...

hopefully after the first of the year, folks will have a little more time to get Wacky with us!!

There are lots of other things to do at the Latte Lounge this week though!!

Check out JLJ Designs Digi Paper challenge! Jen's digi papers are some of the best I've worked with!

In fact, this project was made with JLJ Designs Candy Cane papers!

Pop over and pick up a FREE digi paper and play along with us!

Better hurry, though, because it's ending on the 12th!!

Speaking of freebies!!

Rhonda is hosting the "Make a Scene" challenge and Tracey has very generously offered a SUPER collection of Stamping Boutique images that would be PERFECT for this challenge!!

And we're still recovering from our Holiday Celebration!

Almost needed a Bloody Mary the morning after! (-:

We had a GREAT time and there are still 2 challenges from the party just waiting for you!!

Digi Paper Challenge #2 - Mid Way Reminder

We're mid-way through Digi Paper Challenge #2- Candy Cane at The Latte Lounge. For this challenge, you can download a free digi paper and use it to create a project. The winner will receive two The Stamping Boutique images AND the Candy Cane digi paper pack.

This card uses AJ the Chef from The Stamping Boutique (a great freebie from the chat in the PCP group!) and accent images from Your Next Stamp. I punched a snowflake and flower from the paper pack. I added ribbon and a Merry Christmas tag from Michael's.

We have lots of great challenges going on at The Latte Lounge! Our Christmas Celebrationchallenges are open until December 10th. You can trim a tree in Stacie's Wacky Wednesdaychallenge. Rhonda is making a scene and Tracey has posted about a little goodie if you use it for the challenge!

Happy Crafting!

Make a Scene

Hello! It's time again for another challenge at TLL. This time around I would like you to make a scene. You can use any images, papers, punches, embellies you like. The challenge will run for 2 weeks and will end on Dec. 16. The prize will be 2 images of your choice from the TSB store.

Here is a card I created for some inspiration (you'll notice it's the same card for the AiFactory challenge)...

I hope you'll all join us and play along.

Also don't forget our TLL Christmas Celebration begins tomorrow.  You will have until tomorrow morning to sign up for the Secret Santa exchange as I will be handing out the names then.  We will be having a chat on Saturday Dec. 4 at 7pm EST/5pm MST with some trivia and maybe a little prize.  There will also be challenges to play along with.  Hope to see you there.
