The Crafter's Cafe challenge - time or traffic lights

The current Crafter's Cafe challenge gives a choice - use time as a theme, or traffic lights as a color choice - red, amber, green.  Or really challenge yourself and combine the two!  I used this image from the sponsor - Scribbles.  I am addicted to cappuccino so it is a natural!  I found the bg paper in my Scribbles folder from a while back.  The middle panel is a piece of packing 'filler".  I have saved some of those hot cup sleeves, but could not locate their hiding place.  I thought this paper gave that look.

Happy birthday Deb

Maybe not the usual birthday card, but our daughter lives near the front range of CO - they have had a lot of snow and were without power for 2 days - am sure she is ready for spring!  This is  a lovely new image from TLC. The main bg papers are from a pad by Recollections - I like the subtle coloring.  The dies are a labels set from Spellbinders.

Ready for spring

First of all, thoughts and prayers to all who have been experiencing such bad weather and natural disasters, as well as to the families of victims of attacks.  We used to live in Omaha so those images of flooding are especially troubling to us.
This pre-colored image from Beccy's place is a favorite even though I am not a cyclist.  She looks like she is  ready for spring, having so much fun, and is carrying her basket of goodies home from the market, perhaps.  It also gave me an excuse to use a bit of Washi tape that I have had for some time.  I also used favorite oval dies from Spellbinders and two patterned papers.

Crafter's Cafe Challenge #215 - Borders OR Include some Metal

The current challenge at the Crafter's Cafe is to use metal or show a border - or both.  I used this sentiment from Decosses Dynamite Doodles as a border - than added a border to that using black ribbon topped with silver metallic ric-rac.  The soda can stick on also has touches of silver.

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge #214 - Birds and/or CAS with blue

I used the Cuddly Penguin from Doctor Digi's collection for my bird image.  It is pre-colored - a big help for my failing eyesight.  The sentiment is also from Doctor Digi - in a group called funny sentiments.  The image is die cut with Labels 4 by Spellbinders.  I used striped Washi tape and some paper from my stash as well as a snowflake embossing folder  to complete the card. Please stop by the Crafter's Cafe blog to see what my team mates have come up with, and to join us in this challenge - wth a bird or CAS using blue - or combine the two!
