Diva Coffee Break Designs Challenge #225

One more month has passed... the flowers are blooming, and soon we'll be enjoying summer weather and memories with family and friends, can you believe it?  With the passing month, the countdown to Christmas is 7 months... which means we have less than 6 months to make all those lovely Christmas and Holiday cards!  Have you picked out your design, stamps, etc?  Wouldn't it be great to get a head start?  What if... you used today's sketch for your holiday cards?  Just a thought!

Today, in the US and Canada, we are celebrating Administrative Professionals Day... formerly known as Secretaries Day, LOL.  Why not use today's sketch to make a special thank you card for an Administrative Professional or someone who has made a difference in your life?

Here's today's sketch, hope you'll play along and upload your creation with our linky tool at the bottom of the post!  AND... thank you for playing along with us this month at Diva Coffee Break Designs!

Diva Coffee Break Designs Challenge #223

Wow... last week's rock and roll weather caught a lot of us off guard! Wild and wacky storms crossed the entire country, knocking out internet service and zapping modems... even members of our team were impacted by the storms! I hope you weren't among those affected, and hope we have more beautiful weather in the forthcoming weeks. LOL... wouldn't it be great if it only rained while we sleep? Now if only Mother Nature would cooperate! This week the DCBD team brings you a sketch challenge... so grab those stamps, card stock and ink and come play along with the design team! Scroll down to see the creative team designs, and then add your creation with our linky tool at the bottom of the post!

DCBD 221 Featured Artist

Hello Friends. Hope you are enjoying a little of the Spring weather. The featured artist for Sketch Challenge 221 is Maria Vanderform.

What do you think of her Bargello Technique? Pretty cool, huh?


“Bargello is a form of embroidery that is created through a series of upright flat stitches laid out in interesting patterns. Bargello was traditionally stitched in wool on canvas, making it very durable and perfect for pillows, upholstery, and even carpet. But you can use bargello to create unique cards and paper projects…..” You can find a tutorial here.


Make sure you stop by Maria's blog to see more artwork.

April showers bring May flowers, isn't that what we all look forward to at this time of year? With the cold weather passing, hopefully we all can get outside and enjoy some of the lovely spring weather... that is of course, after we make our cards for this weeks' DCBD challenge! This week we have a DCBD Color Challenge, bright and colorful like the spring flowers we're hoping to see soon!
