July CCC Reveal and DJKASE #33

Hi Everybody! Happy Weak End!!

And Happy First Day of August 2015! (I'm not even going to give it the satisfaction of talking about how it whooshed in here like a speeding locomotive.)

On a positive note, it is time to reveal the cards those of us sent and received who partysipated in Deborah Nolan's (Society of Stampaholics) July Card Chain Challenge.

Here is my card:
Made by me and sent to Janet (Mauritias) of Swanlady Impressions
I used the Lil Inker stitched rectangle on the card base and the stitched oval for the peek-a-boo opening. The paper behind the opening and the stapled ribbons are by SU. The NBUS sediment is from Kaiser Craft's "Friendship Sentiments" set. QACAS!

I followed the friendship theme and sketch option below. Next to it is the beautiful card I was fortunate to receive from the talented Marga from Spain, whose blog is My Crafty Inspiration.

2015-07  
It would be lovely if you could visit Marga! I think Deborah's challenge is really a fun way to send Happy Mail all over the world and make new card pen pals, so I hope you'll check it out and join in!

Today's Twofer

My second card today is a twofer inside a twofer, so to speak, because 1) I made another Christmas card, and 2), I squeezed in a DJKASE for July! 
I am bemused at how the sun angle makes it look like my Rudolph's right eye is lidded and half-closed in a wink, as if having two differently sized eyeballs wasn't oddball enough! It gives him even more of a "Yo, dude, waz up?" expression. Up close you can see that he doesn't even have an eyelid IRL:
The striped fishtail banner is from MFT. The scallop frame is cut from felt using a NBUS Nestabilities die called "Lacey Squares." The wee reindeer is from Paper Smooches "Santa Paws" set. And the NBUS "Joy" is from Winnie & Walter.

And who is my DJKASE inspiration? I'm delighted to say my honoree is my friend Jane Willis of Onions and Paper. Jane's blog name refers to the fact that she provides us with mouthwatering recipes for food in addition to her outstanding recipes for cards! Of course, me and the hamster are all over that combo plate!

Here is Jane's May Rudolph Day card which I pretty much COPIed.
Made by Jane Willis
I just fell in love with this adorable card! I took some liberties with the layout, but the focus pocus is pretty much the same. I loved the pop of stripe on Jane's card, so I used a striped pp for my fish-tail banner. After the blizzard fiasco in my last post, I know Jane will forgive me for not drawing faux snowflakes around and about my reindeer! 

Thank you, Jane, for the inspiration! It was a pleasure to DJKASE you! (For other honorees, see the tab at the top of my blog.)

Cookies

Oh, crumbs, why did They come up with the word "cookies" to refer to our blog history? Why couldn't they just call them "crumbs?" Or "doo-doo" or "ka ka" or some other descriptor of scat left behind that doesn't involve getting me all excited and salivating for cookies? Anythistles, I noticed a little deeliebob has appeared next to my "Overview" title in my Design page. When I clicked on it, I found this notice:
"European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent. 
As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies. 
You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog and that it displays. If you employ other cookies, for example by adding third party features, this notice may not work for you. Learn more about this notice and your responsibilities."
If I understand it correctly, it's now the law of the land in Europe and Google makes it sound pretty dire if you don't have the banner on your site, so I'm leaving it alone. I can also assure you that I don't advertise for anybody nor knowingly provide your information to anyone.

But I mean, aren't cookies just a necessary evil both in the Land of Interwebs and as they relate to waistline spread? We just involuntarily leave our crumbs behind, don't we? I mean, when any of us from any country clicks around the Webs, don't we know that you know that I know that they know that you know that I know that they know where we've been, right? You know what I'm sayin'?

~~~

Speaking of cookies, I went out to a belated birthday lunch with my friend Donna a couple of days ago. (Yes, that's right, I celebrate all month. Can I get an Amen?) I ate a very healthy lunch, but as I was leaving, I saw something in the Temptation Counter than melted all my resolve to be a good girl.

I'm a sucker for a cinnamon roll and this beauty was the Mother of all Cinnamon Rolls!
I put the coffee cup next to it for scale so you can see how decadent and gynormous it was. (Eek, don't mention scale!)

I hope Europe doesn't have a law against publishing photos of cinnamon rolls! Oops. Now I've done it.

~~~

Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower! Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor!

You had me in stitches over the doo doo and ka ka! I agree and will keep it as well. Your card(s) are so fun and cheerful dearie! Such a neat way to give happy mail as well! Love that stitched embossed background. Awesome sauce! Hugz! ~Niki

Jane Willis said...

Wow, I've been DJKASE'd! Really delighted to have inspired you to make such a fab card - and I'm relived that you didn't let Hammy loose with that snow. poor Rudolph would have drowned in it. And drowning is pretty much what you would do if you dived head first into that cinnamon roll.

Jane

Carole Z said...

Wow Darnell, that is some cinnamon roll! Love the fab cards...bit the Rudolph's are so cute! Happy weekend, hugs Carole Z X

Pia S said...

Sketches and CASEs are my favorite challenges as I'm always amazed by how many different versions that can come out from the same source of inspiration. Your first card has a great textured feel to it with the banners, and I also like how you cut out the oval and added it a bit off the centre.
Your Rudolph card is so fun. You do make many fun Christmas cards. Here I love his eyes and the CAS layout in combo with lots of colors.

shirley-bee said...

Amen ;)

Craft-E-Place said...

These cards are amazing! The friend card is simply stunning and what a great idea - I have a stash of ribbon that is just looking for somewhere to go!

Sue said...

Loving the cards.

I wondered why I keep seeing the grey bar along the top of blogs.

That Cinnamon bun looks like it would fill you up for the day:)

Hope you have a lovely day. Sue

Stamps and Paper said...

Your blog post has brighten up my day Darnell you always make me smile...3 fabulous cards and that cinnamon cake is amazing.....no calories in it of course...lol...lol

Anne

Aileen (mum) said...

Wow that has got to be the biggest cinnamon scroll I have ever seen. Hope you ate every itty bitty bit. Love your cards, all beautiful. Funny you talk about cookies, it means nothing other than a computer term here cause we say biscuits. Same as we say bread roll for what you call sandwiches, and scones for what you call biscuit. History lesson finished. Always love my visit.

Julie B said...

What a whopper! Cinnamon roll that is.
These pesky banners are really annoying me too, do we all have to be treated like two year olds?
Fab cards by the way, and sorry for the spleen venting!x

Linda said...

Oh my .... what a whopper!!!! Looks delicious!
Fabulous cards ..... I thought the little reindeer was winking at me (lol!)
I've had the banner on my blog too ........ not sure I understand it all but, I'm leaving well alone.
Have a fab weekend my friend ..... hugs Linda xx

Jane Willis said...

Those banners are soooo annoying - the law has been there for several years now and nobody's died from lack of a banner, so why do we need to have them now? They seem to be on every Blogger blog. We're grown ups and we all know about cookies, and if we didn't like them we wouldn't use t'interwebs. Maybe we all just need one that comes up when we switch on our computer for the very first time that we have to click to say we accept them before we can start surfing, and then after that it's all over and done with.

Plus there doesn't seem to be an option for chocolate chip flavour.

Marilyn said...

Darnell, I just love reading your post every morning!! I just have to remember not to be drinking hot coffee when I do. Awesome cards!!

Ros Crawford said...

Firstly your cards are fabulous!! Love both of them and the one you CASed is gorgeous!

Have a lovely weekend and just so you know I make buns too ... filled with sultanas covered in lemon icing and they are delicious but so more....ish I tossed the scales!

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

The new cookie thing totally CONFUSES me ... so I just let it be! LOL!! I love love love your cards!! LOVING that adorable reindeer!!!!!

designbydonna said...

Very creative offsetting that oval. I may just case that!! Your little reindeer is adorable. And what an attitude with the different size eyes. Looks like he had a little too much fun celebrating.

Jeanne said...

Last things first, that cinnamon roll looks absolutely scrumptious! I have a thing for cinnamon rolls, too and I'd have bought and scarfed it down sooo fast! Yum! Your cards are terrific. Adore the mismatched googly eyes and the whole design of the second card. It's so full of fun. :) And your friend card is simply beautiful. Great work. I hope all the fires I keep hearing about in CA are not anywhere near you! Hugs!

Shirley-Anne Barber said...

Ha Ha have not laughed so much for ages . What an enjoyable post to read . Loved the cards .The Christmas card is a scream with that adorable reindeer . Thanks for sharing on Christmas Card Challenges

Theresa said...

I always know I will leave your blog smiling! I enjoy reading your posts as much as I love seeing your great creations! And today I am leaving wishing for a cinnamon bun!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Popped over to CONGRATS you for the Altenew WIN -- you, seriously, are one VERY LUCKY LADY -- that is a fabulous win :) then you tempt me with that amazing [can I just say AMAZING] cinnamon roll - yowza!! They are my downfall, no doubt. I adore your little reindeer too - great CASE with a very cute image~

Inkyfingers said...

Lovely cards Darnell and I particularly love the Christmas version! Your wonky eyed deer is sooooo cute and I love your CASE of Jane's card.
Thanks for sharing with us at Christmas Card Challenges.

conil said...

Girl, you could get into so much trouble with the Google folks across the pond. Cheeky is something they really don't understand. Back to why I'm here. First, I subscribe...secondly, congratulations on your Altenew win (yay! for you)...thirdly, it's good to see you're still knocking these cards out of the proverbial park. Love the use of the ribbon on that first card. WOW! The reindeer actually looked like he ate some loco weed, but he's a terrific KASE. Another thing we share, oddly enough, is our lack of resistance to cinnamon rolls. I actually dream about my mother's but, even she, could not have created the masterpiece you've shown her. Double YUM!

Sandy said...

I love both your cards, especially how you offset the ovals in the first one. (Call me weird, but that little indention doesn't bother me, it just looks like another embossed effect).
That's one yummy looking cinnamon roll.

Valerie Nolan said...

Fab selection of cards Darnell! I love the layout on the first one and the ribbon is gorgeous! Rudolph is so cute too. Your posts always make me laugh but I'd be scared if someone plonked that cinnamon roll in front of me!!!!
Val x

Sharon Underwood said...

Your cards are awesome! Love the cute reindeer with the googly eyes. Poor thing! Love the banners on both. Neat how you lined up the staples! Posting that cinnamon roll was a mean thing to do when I'm on a (South Beach) diet! That made me drool! Seems to be more of a see food diet!

Marisa said...

Two darling cards. Love the use of negative space and double oval and the reindeer is just too cute on the second one

Lisa said...

Both of your cards are absolutely gorgeous!! I love the ribbon on the first and that reindeer is too darn cute on the other one!! And then, oh my gosh, my mouth is watering over that cinnamon roll!! Yummo!! I hope it tasted as good as it looks!! Have a great day :)

Sue said...

Fabulous cards Darnell. I love the design and colours on your first card and the cute reindeer with his wonky eyes really made me laugh.
I am not surprised you couldn't resist that cinnamon roll, I bet it tasted as good as it looked!
I hope you are having a good weekend.
hugs Sue

scrAPpamondo said...

Benautiful both, Darnell! Love the colourful feel, so festive! My favourite is the first one, with these banners and the creative oval aperture!

Kathleen said...

Well I have been wondering why the thing about cookies has been coming up on a lot of blog, now I know why, thanks Darnell, it's annoying me, I'll tell you.
Great cards and a great post.


Kath x

Bonnie said...

My mouth is watering! What a wonderful looking cinnamon bun! Love your wonderful reindeer (glad the snow stopped). I'd like to think he's winking at me. And I love how you used the ribbons for banners on your friend card! Great idea! I'm ignoring all that cookie stuff. My Dr. said to stay away from such things so I have a good excuse if they come after me!

Pollard Carole said...

Brilliant love your cards they are fabulous I just love them I'm not enjoying that google popup about the cookies its an absolute pain but apparently we have to live with it so sad Love and hugs Caorle x

Pat said...

Two great cards Darnell and I love the way the sentiment mat has been placed to show a little of the pretty insert behind the aperture and the wonderful striped fishtail ribbons are the perfect backing. Then the second is a beautiful casing of Jane's lovely card and I adore the bright red mat and sentiment and that gorgeous striped fishtail paper. Glad you had a lovely lunch and I was going to say that Cinnamon Roll is the size of a small mountain, but I think looking at the amount of icing covering it a vulcano seems more appropriate ..lol. x

Pat said...

Congratulations Darnell! I have just seen your name over at Altenew. x

OH Babs said...

I have seen the cookies crapola and I don't know or care about legal jargon - use plain English. On to other things I like the cards and the sketch is great, but more importantly "gimme that cinnamon roll." Was it as good as it looks? Often things look better than they really are.

Alanna said...

Your cards are fabulous. I love the big ribbons on the first one and the reindeer on your second card is just too cute.

Carol L said...

Fun cards, especially that googly-eyed whimsical little deer! As for the cinnamon roll............I think my blood sugar just went up 50 points by looking at it! LOL

Susanne Vargas said...

Your card for the CCC is very pretty and that cool dude Rudolph made me laugh! He is priceless!
Congrats on winning over at Altenew!

Greta said...

Love how you used the oval dies on your Muse card & the felt lacy square is wonderful! Great cards, Darnell!

Greta said...

Forgot to say--I'm a cinnamon roll lover, too, & just your picture makes my mouth water!

Maxine D said...

From CASEing to cinnamon buns and cookies - only you could link it altogether like that and leave me smiling AND drooling! My computer is in danger when you put up fabulous cards like these Darnell, never mind the food!
Blessings
Maxine

Angela said...

Both of these cards are wonderful, Darnell! I especially like the ribbon on the first card. I need to use more ribbon! I've certainly got enough! That cinnamon roll looks delicious! I think I gained a pound just looking at the picture. It was worth it! LOL!

My Card Attic: Hazel said...

WOW Darnell, you have been a busy girl!! I love them all, especially the one with the cheeky little peek-a-boo oval! As for that ginormous, cinnamon roll, we in Europe don't have a ban on pictures of those . . . YET, but IMHO . . . they should . . . I've just had to mop up a load of drool off of my keyboard!! ;) Have a lovely restful Sunday! Hazel xx

Anita in France said...

Amen, Darnell ... especially with a celebratory cinnamon bun the size of the Grand Canyon on offer! Been wondering why I'm getting that pesky wide and irritating banner on almost all blogs I visit now ... those eurocrats in Brussels really do need to get themselves a life ... each (can you tell I'm a little irked? It's ok, I'll combine it with a smile and will become smirked!). Anyhow, your cards are splendid ... I see delicious shimmer on that yummy rainbow banner ... and those reindeer eyes ... so fun and cute ... had me chuckling! Missing you my friend ... hugs & bisous, bisous, Anita :)

Karen B said...

Wow, an amazing twofer today Dippy. Absolutely love your first card and how you've offset the oval to show the stripped d/p behind. Gorgeous ribbon as well. Loving the googly eyes on that cute reindeer. I'm still speechless after seeing that massive cinnamon bun - think it's actually to feed four??????? You didn't..........no, you really didn't - did you?????

Hugs.

Kylie said...

Gorgeous cards Darnell. So fun!! Wow, that cinnamon roll is crazy big!! Hope you are well xx

Dana & Glen said...

Another round of fabulous cards Darnell! The reindeer are just too cute. I love how you slid the oval over a bit to show off the patterned paper behind!

La profe said...

Thank you for your link to my blog, Darnell. What a funny reindeer card. I love his eyes. And the cinnamon roll.... ummmm!!!

Leslie Hanna said...

Oh, the cuteness! And I love that off-set oval. Look for it to appear on a blog near you sometime soon. :)

Jean said...

Such wonderful cards! Would love to dig into that cinnamon roll!

laurie said...

I wish I had that roll right now as I'm making my rounds in blog land this morning!I'm even drooling I think.

Your cards are all fun and Rudlophs eyes are quite adorable!Have a great Sunday!

JoAnn said...

Love both your pretty cards and the adorable reindeer.

Brenda said...

I am loving both of your cards Auntie! The first one is so pretty, love that sketch too and of course I have always love that SU ribbon! Your DJKASE card is fabulous! I love how in the one picture your reindeer does look indeed like he has an eye lid and that he is half winking. lol Too cute and too cute was the card you CASed. Ok now I'm in the "say what" area! I didn't understand any of that mumble jumble, but like you I wish they would have came up with a different name for "cookies". It always makes me hungry for real cookies! I'm also glad that you aren't breaking any laws with the cookies thing, even though I don't understand any of it. lol Yes, I know what you are saying, but I don't get what they are saying! lol Here's your AMEN! Because I love that you have celebrated your birthday all month long, we all need to do that don't we?!! Now I'm just drooling all over my laptop at the sight of that cinnamon bun!!!! That. Looks. So. Delicious!!!! And huge, but I'd have no problems eating it! lol I daresn't show it to my son, because he is the king of eating cinnamon rolls. lol Have a great week Auntie! Hugs, Brenda

Kim Heggins said...

Fabulous card Miss Darnell...I love your sweet and adorable reindeer! Just as cute as can be. And that cinnamon roll looks so amazing and paired with a pipping hot cup of coffee, oh so yummy!

Laurie Unger said...

Oh my goodness - laughing out loud at your cookie comment. My waistline would know about them "IF" I let them in my house, the edible ones that is. Funny! Great cards!

Cat Craig said...

great cards Darnell, and as usual, I loved the conversation.

Joyce said...

Two fabulous cards, Darnell.

Cheryl W. said...

I think both cards are joyful, as in "full of joy." Love the happy colors and that odd-eyed reindeer image. Too fun!

Loll said...

Love your cards Dolly ... especially the one with rudolph and his quirky expression on his face. He's adorable with the two sizes of eyes! :)

OMG ... that cinnamon bun is CRAZY! Looks like it was big enough to share, but I bet you didn't! :) Lolly xx

SYLVIA-ANNE said...

Fabulous cards Darnell - love them all! Re The cookie thingy, I just click on the "Got It" box and hey-ho the banner disappears! No idea what it's all about - I just carry on as usual!LOL! If my Blog explodes - tough!
Have a happy week - Sylvia xx

Taunya Butler said...

Darnell - Your CCC pal was super lucky to get your excellent card - I think I might be CASEing that card very soon - so awesome the way you made banners out of the ribbon and I love what you did with the ovals!! Just genius!!! And your Rudolph card - simply delightful in every way - even the uneven eyeballs!! JK - I love the cuteness of the card and I really like the way you designed and set up your card - looks so perfect for that FM sketch!! Headed over to check out if I still have time to play along!! Have a beautiful day and I hope this week finds you grinning!!

Carol said...

Such a fun post Darnell from the delightful cards to that humongous cinnamon roll...which is making my mouth water right now! Speaking of cookies, yours seems to be the first blog I've clicked on not showing the rather large black bar with the message on asking me to accept your use of cookies! Carol x

Redanne said...

I always love your cards but the first one is fab-u-lous!! Love how you offset the sentiment and the stitched look edge is just wonderful. Your rudolphs are pretty amazing too.

Not that it will help in any way, I am sick and fed up of the 'crumb' banner, I even wrote to them but needless to say, I have had no response. I think the intention is to frighten us all into leaving it where it is, it certainly seems to be working!

That cinnamon bun is incredible - I hope it was really, really good!! Hugs, Annie xx

Linda Callahan said...

Love the twofer! Sweet sweet cards......and sweet sweet cinnamon bun! Yum!

Happy Dance said...

So first, I'm ignoring the whole cookie thing. However...I cannot and will not ignore that scrumptious looking cinnamon roll. Oh. My. Gosh!!!! 'Scuse me while I wipe off the drool... And your cards. Dang I love that first one. The little off set oval with the peep of green behind it, is a darn brilliant idea. Love that ribbon too. Perfect sentiment; it's only true! Love the Rudy card too. Love his winky/wonky eyes. And how sweet of you to CASE Jane. Took a peek and what a charming blog!! Hope all is well with you, my sweetie pie. My cinny roll. My, ok ok, I'll quit. Talka me later. Bev

Jen Timko said...

Ok, I was totally distracted by the cinnamon roll for a bit but these cards are fabulous! Love those reindeer! Glad you joined us at FMS!

Lisa said...

Playing catch up after vacation!! LOVE each and every project you created while I was away. That little reindeer is adorable and I am swooning over the birthday card with that super duper cute cake!! LOVE that card!!

debby4000 said...

What fabulous cards, love how the ribbon banners are stapled clever idea.
Thank you for joining us at Simon says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Karren said...

Fabulous cards, Darnell! That reindeer with the googlie eyes just cracks me up! Perfect Christmas card! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

Geri said...

Wow - you've rolled out the ribbon and created one sa-weet card! I love the offset oval (aka peek-a-boo) die sentiment 'banner'. I wish I wouldn't have given all my colored staples & stapler away!

2nd card...I speed read your post to find out what delectable piece of paper you used for the scalloped frame...and was delighted when I learned that you used felt - really, REALLY nice effect paired with Anita's paper! Sweet reindeer - love the 'was up' photo!

Now I'm heading straight to our local bakery for a cinnamon bun! I'll eat it standing up so it will be 0 calories!

Brenda in IN said...

Good thing I'm not making a card. There would be drool all over it from that huge cinnamon roll. Lucky that birthday treats have no calories. I simply love your oval friends card. The layout, the banner ribbons and the offset oval. The felt on the rudolf card really caught my eye. Perfect for a Christmas card. As for cookies, don't they know about chocolate chip? Surely they could have called them that. Then I wouldn't mind cookies so much.

Becca Cruger said...

My keyboard is all wet. I need a napkin for my drool after seeing that yummy gooey cinnamon roll! Speaking of drooling, if you put googly eyes on an adorable reindeer, don't expect me not to try to steal that card. And I'm jealous of your CCC recipient. She is one lucky lady!

Shona Chambers said...

I just have one question, did you eat the whole thing???????

Andrea said...

LoL Darnell you are funny and that cinnamon roll was awesome I hope you enjoyed it. As for a month long birthday celebration why not!.Great cards again today I love those stitched die son my wish list and as for the Rudolf especially those wobbly eyes isn't he adorable, a great case indeed. Have a fab August hugs
Andrea x

Helen F. said...

Holy Cinnamon Roll! That is gianormous and looks so darn delish, I would not be able to resist either, Darnell!
As you can tell, I got distracted from commenting on your cards, so I had to go back and re-look at 'em!
Your 'Friends' card design with the ribbon banners and Lil Inker stitched panels is beautiful. And Rudolph is just so adorable, I'm almost inspired to bring out the Christmas stamps and start making cards before my usual mid November 'rush' ;-)

Petra Swart said...

Oh, my, how could I not LOL at the cookie story, Darnell!!! Hilarious!!! This blog of yours is such a treat - just as much as that gigantic yummy cinnabun must have been - good thing it's late here otherwise I would have been off to get one (somewhat smaller, here!!!)!!! And you've made two lovely card ...love your stapled ribbons and the ovals on the first card and your reindeer is so cute, with his lidded eye and without the lid he is just so adorable!!! Love the beautiful stripes on both cards!!!

cm said...

Oh my oh my...from one ab exercise to another, without a chance for a breather! Your first reindeer...hahaahhahaha! Those eyeballs of varying size are hilarious, in only the cutest of ways! Fab card! Reindeer #2 - a darling case of Jane's card! The cinnamon roll...scrumptiously gi-normous! That alone is reason to convince my husband to travel your direction! I'll show this to him the minute he's back from being Chief Cycling hot shot at the Western Canada Games! Yummos!
Hugs~c

Sandy said...

Sharp crisp and wonderful!!!!!!

Why do we suddenly have to click ok,ok,OK every time we visit a blog we haven't visited since before the doo dah appeared. Oh well, at least I know when I haven't visited someone for a while. Hugz

Donna said...

Such a cute card! Thanks for joining the Simply Create Too challenge this month!

JD/ Jill said...

Fun cards again...Your blog always brings a smile to my face...

and after looking at that Cinnamon roll...I think it also added another five pounds to my hips just from looking at it....smile!
