Man of the Moment

It's been absolutely freezing here! Had a choir rehearsal in one of our heritage cathedrals on Saturday and then the concert performance on Sunday and nearly froze to death. No heating and cold drafts coming from every direction. I've survived and the concert went well.
Now onto the new challenge beginning today at Crafting From The Heart challenge blog. It's Anything Goes theme and is Just for Fun (no sponsor) so we were allowed to use our own stash to create with.
Here is what I have made.....

Recipe: SU Early Espresso cardstock
DP from stash
Image and Sentiment from a freebie set of stamps - Man of the Moment
Dies - Uniquely creative ~ stitched stars and Cross stitch Nesting Arches
Punches - SU small star and Large oval and wide oval
Copic Markers
Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad
D/S tape roller and foam Dots

Come over to the challenge blog and join in the fun of a challenge.
Love to hear from you if you are popping in.

Is it Coffee Time

Well, it's been stressful the last couple of days with a second Windows Update making my computer crash. I spent about 3 hours last night waiting for Auto Repair to work with no luck, so had to leave computer on all night and woke this morning to hubby telling me the computer was on with a big blue screen etc. So back to trying to work it out and finally after another couple of hours it's finally decided to play nice. I'm lucky, another friend had the same problem but didn't get any repair screen. It's cost her hundreds of dollars and several days without a computer. Windows should be responsible for all the expense incurred by probably lots of people with this issue. Anyway.... that's enough ranting. Now onto my reason for my post today!
It's challenge time at Crafting from the Heart (and I'm late because of the above!!!)The theme is as usual Anything Goes and our sponsor is Createful Heart Digis.
Here is my card........

SU Dapper Denim cardstock, SU Garden Green cardstock and White cardstock from stash
DP is from TPC Studio - So Deligh ~Everything but the kitchen sink
Image is from Createful Heart Digis - Perkin Up
Sentiment from SU stamp set ~ Coffee Cafe
Dies - Nesties ~ Petite Scalloped circles - small
           Die-namics ~ Stitched Circles
Punches - SU 1 3/4" circle and 2" scalloped circle
Copic Markers
SU Night of Navy inkpad
D/S tape roller & foam dots

Well after all the drama, lol, I would like to encourage you to pop into the challenge blog and check out the DT creations and add an entry or two. We'd love to see your makes.
