Warm Wishes

Hi Friends,

Oh my, I nearly missed this Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!  I've been away from social media for the last few months and only logged back on two days ago.  Thankfully, I managed to find a couple of hours to put a very simple card together.  I haven't crafted for nearly six months, due to health issues, so it was great to get back to it and to colour again.

Perk Up Soon

Hi Friends,

I  finally managed to finish off a fourth card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - yippee.  

This cute little girl from Pure Innocence MFT Stamps has been sitting, coloured up, on my craft table for the last two weeks.  When I coloured her I had no particular card design in mind and when I sat down to create a card I drew a blank.  I must have played around with different ideas for her for two days and was going to give up. I then decided to grab some complimentary scrap pattern out of my scrap box and work with it whether I liked the result or not!  Here is the final result....I don't hate it but I don't really love it either, but I'm glad I got her on a card!

Sip, Yawn, Repeat

Hi friends,

I hope everyone has had a great week. I can't believe it is Friday already - yikes!  I would like to share my third card for Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I used an extremely cute stamp from Newton's Nook called Slothy Coffee - this is me every morning! Having two young kiddies means I don't often get a full nights sleep. The awesome sentiment is from Newton Loves Coffee stamp set.
