Fabulous Cokie!

Thursday, September 2, 2010


I made a card this week for my sister Nicole's birthday. And while I'm on the subject of Nicole, I wanted to answer a question that people often ask me. People often wonder how I came up with the name Cokie Pop for my business and blog.

Well the name comes from Nicole. When I was a little girl I could never pronounce her name. So I simply called her "Cokie". The nickname stuck and most of the family started calling her that.

I wanted a unique and cutesy name for my blog so I took her nickname and added the word "Pop"......then ended up with "Cokie Pop". The name seems cute and catchy to me so I'm using it (with her permission of course)! :)

This card is Nicole all the way. She's a Diva and she's Fabulous! I thought this card fit her personality so well. I used the Unity stamp called "Classic Beauty" for the image. I've been wanting to try their stamps ever since I ran across the All Things Unity Blog. . I've entered this in their challenge this week. I love colorful, cutesy, and whimsical designs. I would describe "My Style" this way. The Shabby Tea Room is also doing a fun "Old Meets New" challenge. I love using old and new products together so this card fit right in. The die-cut shape and the stamp that I used are new. The flowers, paper, and other embellies are old stuff from my stash. I've also entered this card is several other wonderful challenges going on this week. (See below)

I also used large blooms and kept the color scheme of black, pink, and white. I picked up the cutout that I stamped the image on from my LSS. The "fabulous" sticker and button embellie are from TPC Studio's Girlfriends collection.

All Things Unity - What's Your Style
