Freshly Brewed - Guest Designer

Happy Monday! It is especially happy for me as I am featured as the guest designer today over at Freshly Brewed. I found this blog and digi's a few months back and now make it a point to play along every month. I love coffee and I love making coffee cards, so it was an easy match for me.

But they also have some other fun designs and as a guest designer I got to choose a few to work with. Being that it is the month of Love, I chose a couple of images from their Valentine collection.

Crazy in Love
This first image is called Crazy in Love. Isn't she fantastic? She is so stylish and just so comfortable being herself. I have become pretty comfortable making easel cards, but this is my first shaped one. I used my Stampin Up die cuts called Labels. The paper I picked up at Michael's when it was on sale and the Chip Board was from Recollections.

My second card is also from their Valentine collection called "Love to the Rescue." Isn't he just adorable? I sure thought so. The chip board is from the same Recollection set I used on the card above. Everything else was from my stash. I have had that Valentine Ribbon for almost two years now, but works every year, lol.

Well, I want to thank Heather for featuring me this month on her lovely blog. I hear she is having quite a time with the weather in her neck of the woods, so hopefully she will be able to bundle up and enjoy a cup of that fine Java she loves so much!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Ends Feb 28 - Anyone for Anya - Odd Card
Ends Feb 22 - One Stitch at a time - Use a digi
Ends Feb 28 - Kitty Bee Designs - Use Red/Pink
