First of all, I want to apologize to my fellow DT members and Kelly and Kendra, the owners and wonderful artists of THE CHARACTER CAFE for my FEATURE FRIDAY post being so late.  As I've said before, I don't like to bring too much personal stuff into my blog because I like it to be about my projects, but sometimes, life throws you for a curve and things go a little haywire for a bit before they get back on course.  Anyway, I started having a bunch of anxiety issues late last week about my accident, and although I'm physically fine from the accident, the emotional toll has been worse than expected, but I'm working really hard to get through that. 

Ok, so let's get HAPPY and stay POSITIVE:)  Btw, I have decided to post some NEW BLOG CANDY very soon, so be on the lookout for that!!

My winner of the image SIMONSTEIN from TCC blog hop is Heather (Rica).  CONGRATS HEATHER!!  Please contact me at when you have time so we can get your image out to you.

So, our FEATURE FRIDAY CHALLENGE at CHARACTER CAFE BLOG this week is BRIGHT colors PLUS sparkles, glitter, etc.  I love anything glittery and sparkly:)  Please remember that although you do not have to use TCC images to enter the challenge, we'd sure LOVE to see one.  Make sure you head on over to CHARACTER CAFE SHOP to check out all the images PLUS FREEBIES:)  You have until Thursday, August 19 at 10pm to link your creation over at the TCC Blog using our linky tool.  Can't wait to see what you've created:)
I chose to use this ADORABLE CHARACTER CAFE image of "Spott."  I colored him with Copics and Aytou Spicas.  DP is K & Company, CS is Core-dinations vintage, SU soft suede and gable green and a beige color I piced up at Archivers.  I used buttons from Denami designs and green Stickles.  Image cut with nesties.  Cuttlebug EFs used for spots and stripes.  I hope you like it!!

This was also made for the following challenges:
PLAY DATE CAFE - dark brown, green, beige
DELIGHTFUL CHALLENGES - animal, dots and stripes
CRITTER CHALLENGES - boy card using glitter
Ooh-la-la Creations - spots and dots
