Joan's Gardens Challenge #2 and CDAC creations

Hello Everyone!  
I hope you've had as nice as day as I have!!  Today I got together with my friend Terri Snode (Cards 'N More) as well as my daughter & grandchildren for a little crafting fun!  The following is PART of what I worked on today ... hope you enjoy!

Joan Fricker (Joans Gardens) began having Thursday challenges last week so that means today is time for Challenge #2.  This week we are to make a "Vintage" creation using at least one Spellbinders Nestability.

(click on image to enlarge)
The "lock & key" are Spellbinder Shapabilities Timeless Heritage"  (gosh, I hope that qualifies).  The vintage designer paper is actually an RAK from Joan.  The little mice in the shoe is a sticker as is the sentiment.  The vintage flower was cut from musical paper using a die from Tim Holtz.  The flowers were also purchased from Joan Fricker and are from a company in England.  


Here are a few other cards I created today using the FREEBIES offered over at the new CDAC (Crafters Digital Art Center) Community. 

First up is this adorable digi from The Character Cafe.  You can visit their community page HERE.

Next is this summertime fun image from Doodle Pantry.  HERE is their community page link.
And lastly is this Michelle Perkette Freebie all done up in pinks & purples.  You can visit Michelle's page HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for another fun RAISE THE BAR challenge!  Hope to see you then!
