Eat Cake



I always need birthday cards in my stash. When I came across this pocket card from one of my Cocoa Daisy kits, I knew it would make a fun birthday card. I used this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:


I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

World's Greatest Dad

We celebrated Father's Day a week late last weekend and I forgot to blog this card I made for my awesome father-in-law. I used this Sketch-n-Scrap sketch (which was perfect for what I had in mind for this card):

Wake Up And Be Awesome

Welcome to the last day of the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop. This is my 9th card for the hop that I am sharing. I love this bloghop and it is one of my favorite events of the year. Amy Tsuruta and her crew have been hosting these for several years now and they keep getting bigger and better. This time there are over 80 super sponsors and already hundreds of awesome projects linked up. Inspiration abounds in the link-ups. I have been looking at some of the incredible projects and am amazed. I found this fun little die cut in my stash and decided to design a card around it.


This sketch from Kerry Urbatch for the Coffee Loving Papercrafters Sunday Sip and Share blog feature was perfect.



I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge and Pixie's Snippet Challenge #327 as the orange and lime green papers were from my scrap (or snippet) basket....so was that piece of twine I used for the bow. Di is offering an awesome prize package and I honestly would love (and use) every item.

There are not only great sponsor prizes this week for the blog, but there are many blog and Instagram giveaways as well. I have my own giveaway. I will be drawing one comment from all the comments left this week and the lucky commenter will receive this little prize package and one of the cards that I made this week so make sure to keep track of my cards and let me know which one is your favorite. Included are a set of coffee themed rubber stamps, a set of coffee themed flair and some wooden coffee cups perfect for your coffee loving project. I will draw and post a winner here on my blog Sunday June 2nd so make sure to comment on all my projects this week.


That is it for now....I am going to have a slice of pizza, watch the news and then try to knock one last card for the hop which would bring my total to 10....a personal best for me!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Life Happens, Coffee Helps





Welcome to day 5 of the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop. This is my 6th card for the hop that I am sharing. This is one of my favorite events of the year. Amy Tsuruta and her crew have been hosting these for several years now and they keep getting bigger and better. This time there are over 80 super sponsors and already hundreds of awesome projects linked up. The hop runs all week so you have plenty of time to create a coffee themed project and link it up for your chance to win. The inspiration abounds in the link-ups. I have been looking at some of the incredible projects and am amazed. I have been attempting to use all my coffee themed products in my stash that have not yet been used and for this card I am using some coffee themed papers from Stampin' Up and that sentiment (how true!) was inked up for the first time from a stamp set by Technique Tuesday.

I have been attempting to use all my coffee themed products in my stash that have not yet been used and for this card I am using some coffee themed papers from Stampin' Up and the sentiment from Technique Tuesday just got inked for the first time also.


I fussy cut those sweet coffee cups out of some SU designer paper. I  was inspired by this sketch from Scrapbook and Cards Today.

Week 21



I am documenting my favorite moments of each week this year instead of the Project Life albums that I had been doing the last 5 years. And I am really loving this way of memory keeping.
This is week #21 and I adapted this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:



It was a little challenging adapting this sketch to a 6x8 page but I enjoy challenges and I am rather pleased with the final result.

Well that is it for right now...I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend...we did.
