I’m sure you have already seen the gazillions of coffee cards across blog land this week and I could not resist adding one more! It is the week for the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I just had to combine the coffee theme with this week’s new challenge from Freshly Made Sketches. The lovely queen of color, Amy O’Neill, is our sketch designer this week and I love this classic look.
I started with the new Coffee Break DSP from Stampin’ Up and pretty much let the paper do all the work. The French Press and the cup…straight from the paper (just fussy cut and off you go). And check out that coffee bean paper!!! I was in a huge hurry to create this but just could not let the hop and great sketch go by without playing along. I only stamped this fun sentiment from Skipping Stones Designs and put the card together. I added a few sequins from an old Paper Pumpkin set to give it a little bling and still keep it on the masculine side. I thought the colors lent themselves to that and I always seem a little short on “man cards”.
So I have been stamping a ton with a lot to share in the upcoming weeks. And also, flying lots and lots. Summer is always the busy time for us airline folks! I love having all the summer people on the planes. There is a great energy and excitement for vacations. I particularly love when the kids visit us in the front!! So I apologize for some of my absences. I am, however, super excited about the Fancy Friday hop we have coming up this week. I hope you’ll join us.
