Welcome bloggers! First off, let us just say thank you to everyone who participated last week. I know it seems to pale in comparison to some blog challenges out there, but we had a whopping 70 participants!!! That’s a record here at TCC, so YIPPEE!!!!
On to the WINNER….
#40 MARIA MATTER
Congrats Maria, we will be in touch with your $5 Gift Certificate to the Cafe Store! If you see this, and haven’t heard from us, please send us an e-mail…
Now for this weeks’ challenge… we want you to use Shiny material like foil or glitter paper, anything that has a mirror-like finish…
So to help inspire you, our fabulous DT came up with these creations…
Deanette (not sure what happened to your picture last night?! Trying it again)
and of course, Lola!
We hope that you find some time to play along in what we realize is a super busy season for most of you out there.
Up for grabs is a $5.00 Gift Certificate to the Cafe Store and a blog badge for you!
Well, this is the point in our post that we bring to you some important news for the future of The Character Cafe. Kelly and I have been drawing for the Cafe for a few months shy of 2 years now and while we’ve enjoyed it tremendously, we are finding it harder and harder to find time to complete our images, let alone participate in our groups and getting to know you all.
We recruited Fink to help us out and while she took on all that we asked of her, it seemed that the time she freed up for our drawing ended up being needed elsewhere in our lives.
It was with heavy hearts that we had to come to terms with the fact that there really aren’t enough hours in the day and it just isn’t feasible for us to take on another Design Team at this time. So, we have informed our current (and wonderful) Design Team that the last 2 weeks of December are voluntary.
After that, the Cafe Store will remain open and we are here for customer service, but we will not be drawing any new images starting Jan. 2011. Our blog will also remain as Kelly and/or I may wish to pop in and say hi, or you never know…
We want to thank our friends/supporters from the bottom of our hearts for the past 2 years of crafty goodness and we will definitely be seeing you in blogville!!!
As a thank you, we are also putting all Cafe images on sale for $1 only… get them while you can ladies!!!
