UGH! Sorry-this was suppose to post on Sunday! I didn’t even realize it never did!

Hi everyone!

I’m back again for another post!

Can you believe it?! LOL! I’ve been posting a few times a week since we began the new My Time Made Easy ™ LLC Blog!

I have to say I’m so enjoying all this extra inspiration to share and post. I missed it. Granted, I’m running like CRAZY, but it feels good to share more often.

OK here is the next challenge.

Pretty Palette Challenge: MTMEPPC02

I really loved the colors on this, so I decided to dust off an “old” set and make it fresh and new!

Here is my take which I named  The Cafe

I used the A Lil’ Cafe © 30 Images set  to make this card., which was designed  to look like the outside of a Cafe (obviously! LOL!).

The brick pattern is stamped in a pale tea dye ink along the edges. I sponged on some tea ink to make it look like the outside of an aging painted brick cafe.

There is a lot of dimension on this one, as you can see.

My coffee cup, and chair seat are stamped, colored and cut, then raised with dimensionals.

I love the windows! They are so pretty!!

I stamped the windows,  adding the shutters, and the “curtain” trim, colored and cut them out. I also added the flowers (they are in the set) so they appear like they are growing out of the window boxes, which were stamped on blue cardstock, in a brown ink. They were added using dimensionals.

I stamped on the sign images, and added the Cafe sentiment to the center.

After everything was stamped I used my ruler, and black drawing pen to create my own sidewalk, adding grass with my marker. I also added some flowers to the sidewalk too.

I took the All Steamed Up © digital paper, and changed the pink, to blue, to match my creation. I love that! It was the perfect additon to this!

Thank you to Lisa for choosing such a fun Pretty Palette!

I hope you all can give it a try too!

I’ll be back on Thursday, as it the first day of peeks for the April 1st Release, and the next Pretty Pattern Challenge!

See you then!
