Just Saying Hi!!

I made this card in response to a "Surprise Challenge" at Fresh Brewed Designs.  If you email them, they will send you a "surprise" free digital image, which you then must use to enter their weekly challenge, using the sketch they provided.   Of course I succumbed because one...it was a free "surprise" image so I was curious and two, I haven't entered a challenge or posted anything in quite a while and I thought maybe it would get me cracking again!!  I have been creating family birthday cards, and am almost finished redoing my wedding album from 37 years ago (that was extremely tough!) but beyond that....nothing!!  ANYWAY...here is the card I created for the challenge.  The Free Surprise Image is the Coffee Shop you see in the center of the card....only it didn't have the title "Coffee Shoppe" on the image, nor did it have the words "cupcakes" and "bagels" on the window signs.  I added them using Microsoft Word.  I colored the image using Promarkers & Spectrum Noir markers. All the background papers are from my stash..as is the "just saying hi" sentiment stamp.  I made the buttons by coloring white card stock with the same blue marker as I used for the color surrounding the shop.  Then I punched them out using Epiphany Crafts button maker and used Primo Jute twine in the buttonholes. ! And this is the creation I ended up with... I had horrible lighting & shadows as I photographed this card so I hope it doesn't hurt the eyes any!  Hope you enjoyed it and thanks for stopping by!!

I am so happy that you were able to play along with us in this SURPRISE CHALLENGE. Hope that we were able to get your mojo and inspiration brewing. It looks as though we did! I LOVE this card!! I left the banners blank in the windows so the customer would have more room to be creative with it. Happy birthday - thank you and so on! I am so happy to see that you used the banners and love your shading on the image. Fantastic!!!

Thanks again for playing along!
Have a happy and blessed day,
Heather Dennis
