Thanks a Latte

I don't know what it is but I love coffee themed cards, paper, stamps! I love coffee!! I saw MFT sketch for this week and I thought about what I wanted to do that would be a little different. While enjoying a cup of coffee it came to me! I had these dies from Simon Say Stamp that I had not played with yet, so here it is! I did have to trim the coffee mug to a cup though!

Supplies I used for this card:
Neenah Desert Storm card base
Simple Stories 6x6 Documented patterned paper
Simon Says Stamp coffee cup and Big Thanks dies
Fiskars Latte Love stamp set-sentiment

MFT Stamps challenge MFTWSC#238

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!!!

Hi Everyone!
I recently purchased some of Tiddly Inks new digi stamps, and I've been busy playing in my room!
Here is Wryn, BBQ Queen. I think she's pretty cute, but I have to admit - I DON'T BBQ! I leave that to my DH! He is a fine BBQ chef!!
Tiddly Inks has a challenge "Summer Songs". I was rummaging through my stamps and I had this stamp set from C.C. Designs and saw the stamp, "Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!"  I knew this was the one! It's been 110 degrees here in Arizona, and I can honestly say I'm feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

Here is a list of the supplies I used for this card:
Hammermill card base and image
Pebbles 6x6 Americana patterned paper
Tiddly Inks, Wryn BBQ queen digi stamp
C.C. Design, Pool Party-sentiment
MFT blue prints #6, #18 and Pierced Oval STAX
Creative Impressions crepe ribbon 

Hope you're enjoying your summer!

Lots of Birthdays!

Hi Everyone!

I've been busy working on a few cards for some upcoming family birthdays! I can't post all of them yet, but here is one that I did for The Red Wagon, Birthday Challenge!
I used C.C. Designs stamp Monster Sweets. I colored it in using my Prismacolors pencils. I also used Taylored Expressions paper Double the Fun, C.C. Designs Say Cheese dies set, and Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday die.  I used Glossy Accents for his eyes and teeth and my glitter pen for his lollipop!  My original plan was to make a shaker card with this cutie but I just don't have the technique down quite yet. So here is plan B, this little monster is so cute and fun to color.  Stay tuned for a few more cards to come! 

Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge #18

Call me craZy, it's 110 degrees here in Arizona and I'm designing a Christmas card! I can call it "Christmas in July"!! I love this paper and when I saw this sketch I had the perfect stamp set in mind. I've only had this stamp for 4-5 years and I've never used it! I'll be using it a lot more, I loved this little reindeer and his sweater that I paper pieced together.

Well, I can now share with you the card I made for my sister's birthday! She is most deserving of a glass of wine and a bubble bath. She does so much for my parents and she's always busy doing homework for a certification for her new job working with visually impaired students. She's a wife, a Mom, a Grammie, a daughter and a wonderful sister. I don't know how she does it all! She'll be back in school soon and I wish for her a little relaxation for her birthday before her summer is over.
Happy Birthday Sherry! Love you!
