Hi my name is Corinne and my nickname is frenchie on the forums ( I am orginally from France ). Lauretta's one of my best friends, and we created the Craft Your Passion challenge blog, together. My drawing artist name is CocoDingo. My blog of digital stamps is CocoDingo. You can view/purchase my images at: I am also with the design team of karmascrap. I’m a stampin’up demonstrator since last year. You can visit my personal blog at: Here, You will find all of my passions on this blog: scrapbooking, cards, drawings and jewelery.

Not only is CocoDingo offering an incredible prize package to one lucky winner of the challenge, they also provided images for the design team to use. THANK YOU, Corinne!

I had the privilege of creating with the CocoDingo Bench in a Park image.

This was such a fun image to color. I enjoyed blending blues and greens in a variety of hues to create the water.

I wanted the Bench in a Park image to be the focal point of my card, so I went with a very simple layout and few embellishments.

I did add some layering, after all, rarely do I make a card without layering.

awwwww... this is a nature scene I can hardly wait to experinece. A nice WARM summer day.

What a serene scene, Jeanette -- the kind that makes you want to dive right into the card and stay a while! Fun background papers -- I like how you punched out that extra little bee -- so sweet!
