Friday Showcase @ TCC Week 2

Mary's Birthday Princess

It's Week 2 at The Character Cafe.

I think I'll probably try to shorten that to TCC or The Cafe in future posts.

This week we were challenged to use ribbon on our cards.

Since it's the Summer I'm trying to take it easy and not over exert myself
since we're experiencing a heat wave here in Central Texas. We've actually hit
a record with how many consecutive days we've been at over 100 degrees F

So I did use ribbon just not as much as some of the other girls on the DT.

But, I still think she's very cute.

Oh and if you're wondering where'd I find such small pearls I found them at
Micheal's. And they cost as much as the pearls that Hero Arts sells but these
come in 3 varying sizes as opposed to 2. So I get more bang for my $1.99 which
is nice.

I created this card to be for a birthday and decided I'd put the sentiment inside.

DH said all the card needs is a little Mario in the background.

Next week, on Wednesday 1 July, TCC will be launching the Work it Wednesday Challenge. One of the Design Team members will bring you a featured technique/theme and a challenge with a prize. I hope you will play along!

Also, be sure to go check out what the rest of the team did this week! >>>>
