Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge

Hello Blogging friends,

I have exciting news to share today, for I am now a member of the Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges Design Team!

I even get a fancy new blog badge.

I know I was cutting back on my DT commitments due to my real job getting in the way (don't you hate it when that happens?), but when an opportunity came up for one of my favourite challenge blogs, I just had to apply, and wouldn't you know it, they let me join them.

So here I am to tell you about the current challenge - and what a delicious start to my DT term it is! Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges have posted this yummy looking photo as inspiration:

How it inspires you is up to your imagination. Is it the gorgeous colours of pink, orange, yellow & green? Is it the spots, the stars, and diamonds? So many possibilities.. yet I sat motionless for DAYS trying to figure out what to do. Finally, I got my gorgeous little digi from Digi Doodle Shop, Emily Hug a Heart, coloured her in to match this spectacular cake, and came up with this:

I popped her up with dimensionals, as well as the sparkly, blinged-up banner. The banner was created with My Favourite Things Die-Namics Banner and Mini Alpha set. I stamped the name Caitlin on it with the teeny tiny letters, in honour of one of my all time favourite little people who I am visiting this weekend.

Our challenge this fortnight is sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop and a fabulous $10 Gift Certificate is on offer for one lucky winner.

I hope you'll join us for my first CCCC Challenge! Now, I think I need to eat cake - preferably a big pink, orange, star studded one.
