Does Anyone Use CDAC Anymore??

Hey all... just wondering if any of you are active members at CDAC and if not, why?

I've been a member there for the past 3 years, but I admit that this past year I've slacked off greatly... mostly to focus on my challenge blogs and now my business.  After taking a looksee over there at some of the groups I was part of, it feels like many have been MIA for some time as well.  Just contemplating going back and wondering if my crafty friends are over there :)  Thanks for your input!!

Accordion Patriotic Door Hanger & More!

It's another new release day and we've got LOTS to show and tell including some Americana Patriotic sets for the holiday coming up!!  So grab a cuppa while the post loads and sit back and enjoy!!  ☺

This first set was requested by design team member, Mandy as her friend runs a hedgehog rescue out of her home and wanted some thank-you cards to send her donors.  What a great cause Mandy!  Thank you for your request and here's the first hedgie set...

Father's Day Lighthouse Giftbox

Happy Father's Day!!  My father, an oldies-car fixer-upper, motorcycle-riding,open road-loving, people-person, strict and firm father with a funny-silly side, a a retired pastor of 40 years... and a guiding light.

I saw this lighthouse box on my friend, Patti J's blog and knew I had to find the template and make this for my own dad.  I embossed the white tower with a Tim Holtz brick folder.  He actually has his livingroom subtley decorated with lighthouses, so this was a great gift for him.  It's a li'l gift box too, which his main gift wouldn't fit in, so what did we fill it with??  Some yummy Werther's candies.

My card uses a stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs called "Keep My Lamp Burning". The li'l light at the top of the tower is a battery-operated tea light. Very important---do not use a real candle!! :)   Here it is with the lights off...
Hope you all had someone special to celebrate... or hold special memories your father this weekend.  Thanks for stopping!!  xKris

Ladybirds & Fishing Bears

Today starts a new progressive freebie challenge at the Imagine That! blog.  But before we get to the challenge today, I have a new release show & tell.  :)  When I chose the image for today's challenge, I had totally forgotten that Father's Day is coming up... and since we did a Mother's Day set, I whipped up this cute li'l Fishing Bear & sentiment.  *Note:  This is not the challenge image this time (scroll down for our challenge image), however this li'l set is available in my shop at a reduced rate for Father's Day!  :)

 here’s a picture frame I made using the colored version and some photos of my daughter Carly when she was on her first fishing trip with her dad.
*sigh*  they grow up WAY too fast!  My youngest dd just turned 13 yesterday! Aywhoo be sure to check out the Design Team’s creations at Imagine That! Blog.

and finally… here is the challenge image, “Ladybug Friends” …
or “Ladybird” as they say in the UK.  I like that version better don’t you?!  :)
