Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I love coffee. It's true. But I am quite the coffee snob. HA! I only really like a few certain coffee drinks but at home, I drink Dunkin Vanilla with about 4 cups of Coffeemate Vanilla Creamer. You don't want to know how many big jugs of that stuff I go through a month. Eeek!

I created a super fun card for this hop while I was at my stamping retreat. So much fun!
I started with creating a blending background by masking off my Neenah white cardstock with painters tape. I blended Tim Holtz Distress Inks until I achieved the look I was going for. Then, I placed a Tim Holtz stencil over the blended area and dabbed it with a wet baby wipe to pick up the color. I loved how this turned out! The coffee word die is inlaid. The die and bean stamp is from Verve.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and go grab a cuppa! xo

Fabulous Florals {Avery Elle}

So my amazing and awesome friend Heather Campbell designed this gorgeous floral set for Avery Elle. It's just so pretty. So when I received my order of the new ink colors and this stamp set, I had to make something pretty with them.
I created this yesterday for the Avery Elle Challenge, however I'm a day late and a dollar short. LOL oh well, life happens. So I'm just posting it for FUN!

Have a spectacular day, everyone!

Follow Your Heart.

Hey guys! It's been a while since I've blogged. Sorry about that. Life happens I suppose. Back to school time and getting ready for our family vacation to Disney World in two weeks. Anyway....

Today, it's Unity hop day! WAHOO! Some fun stuff happening at Unity this weekend.
          
Here is my card this week, using the Kit of the Month. LOVE this big, bold flower!
Two things I have learned from making this card: gold is SO hard to photograph and I suck at splatter! HAHAHA. 

You're moving on to the next stop on the hop. Remember to leave those comments!

You're Foxy.

DUDES. Foxes will never get old. The fox trend is still going strong and I am going to ride that trend train for forever! Moxie Fab World is hosting a foxy fox challenge here. You know I had to jump all over this one!
For this card, I used Spellbinders new fox die, I love him! The sentiment is from Kelly Purkey's Simon Says Stamp set and the friend sentiment is from Altenew. The border stamp on the side is from Mama Elephant.

Thanks for stopping by today!
