Just look at those sentiments!! *swoon* Here is my card:


I colored up the gorgeous bouquet and cup with my Copic markers, added some colorful matching color dots and kept it very clean and simple to focus all the highlight on the gorgeous image. I will be using this set A LOT in the future! Thank you so much, Gracie for allowing me to use this beautiful set!

Coffee is ALWAYS a Good Idea!


Hello everyone! Welcome back to my blog - today is the last Wednesday of the month, so that means it's my turn to share on the the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog.


For my card this week, I used some fun gold foil, stamps from Simon Says Stamp and a wooden veneer from our local dollar store...so fun!!


I started my card by cutting out panels with my My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag dies and then stamping my cups and coffee beans along the bottom of my white background. I adhered my wood veneer coffee cup and wa-laa!! Done! So cute and fun to make.

Sorry for the reflections in the photos in the foil, but it's very difficult to capture the foil without any! lol


Thank you so much for stopping in today to see what I've created for you this Wednesday...have a wonderful day - CHEERS!

MM #284 {Red and White}


Welcome back to my blog! This week at Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge, miss Marcia is our hostess and she's looking for us to use "red and white" on our cards:


I decided to do a very CAS card for Marcia's challenge but I love the WOW factor it produced:  


I just used a simple, gorgeous snowflake embossing folder from Stampin' Up! and the sentiment is from Hero Arts and I embossed it with white embossing powder. Very simple but so pretty! I love red and white together :)


Thanks so much for stopping in today - be sure to hop on over and see what the rest of the Merry Makers have created using Marcia's "red and white" challenge! Cheers!
