Coffee talk among friends

Hi everyone! Well this is my last card for the Coffee Lover's blog hop. I wanted my last one to make you laugh and hopefully I have succeeded!  I want to say "Thank You" to all the hoppers that have stopped by my blog this week and given me some kind words. I truly appreciate your support!


This is an old stamp that I have had forever. It is from Emerson.  It always seems to make an appearance in the blog hops, but come on, there are so many phrases that work with this stamp! It is one of my favorites.

The sentiment is from the funny bones collection over at Riley and Company.  Here is the second part of the stamp.


 We have all had those type of days!

Thanks for stopping by!

Coffee Time...in any language

It is day 5 of the Coffee Lover's Blog hop and by now you all must be getting tired of hopping and your eyes must be getting tired as well. So I thought I would make it easy for you today and just use pictures. This way you don't have to worry about blurry eyes trying to read a sentiment.


Now I know this is a CAS card, but I really did put some thought into it. In my younger years we use to have brain teasers where we would have to guess the sentence by putting words together. This one is pretty simple, but I remember some of them being pretty hard to guess.

I have had these two stamps in my stash for some time. They are on wood block, but they come off easily so that I can stamp with my MISTI enabling me to get nice, clean crisp images.


So only a few more days left, hang in there and thanks for stopping by.

O.C.D. Obsessive Coffee Disorder

It is day 5 of the Coffee lover's blog hop. This card is for all you hoppers! I think you need to be just a bit obsessive...er dedicated to be able to power hop the way you do.


There is not too much I can say about this card as it kinda speaks for itself. The sentiment is from The Funny Bones Collection over at Riley and Company.  They have lots of Coffee related funny bones so if you were looking to add to your collection, check them out.

The paper is from Canvas Corp Brands and they too have some great Coffee theme'd supplies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Things with Wings - SSS Monday Challenge

Hello everyone. I had this window frame sitting on my desk from my play over the weekend and I thought that it would work great for a card to enter into this weeks Monday challenge over at SSS. The theme is things with Wings and Birds and Butterflies work great for that theme.


The window frame is colored using Lindys Magicals and the background behind the window was created using Ken Oliver's Color burst. They are similar products and paired up nicely together.

I also pulled out some of my Tim Holtz rub ons to add more interest to the background.  I finished it off by adding some Spring ephemera from Tim Holtz' new collection. 

I hope you liked my card and thanks so much for stopping by!

Act of Love - Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 4

Good morning and Happy Monday! I thought I would try to make you smile today. I know my little fur babies put a smile on my face every single day.  I have two Dachshunds and one Beagle. While I do love my Beagle, dearly, Dachshund cards are so fun to make.


This is day 4 of the Spring Coffee lovers blog hop. I went clean and simple this time, which is not typically my style, but I can do it, and sometimes they are rather cute. Wouldn't it be great if our little animals could bring us our first cup every morning?

I was looking through my sentiments and this one seemed to fit perfectly. I think I love this card! LOL!  Hope you do as well.


Thanks for stopping by!

Coffee Lover's Blog Hop Day 3

 Good morning, Good afternoon or Good evening...depending on what time you are hopping. It is the third day of the Coffee Lovers blog hop and I am here to encourage you to be strong!  Now if that means, take a break and get a strong cup of coffee, then by all means...do what ya gotta do!


I didn't have a lot of time to put this card together, but I did have a few scraps laying around on my desk so I threw this together. If you remember, I used these cute little wooden coffee cups in my card yesterday, so I still had the package on my desk. Is that cheating? 

Happy Hopping!

Coffee in Bloom - Day 2

Hello Coffee Lovers! It is day 2 of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I know you are still going strong! Feel free to take a coffee break if you need to, I know this hopping takes energy and stamina, but I know you are all up for it!


For today's show and tell I have another grunge coffee card. Well come on, would you expect anything different from me? Perhaps I will surprise you this week.

I created this background using some of my distress inks and stencils from Tim Holtz. I picked up the cute little wooden coffee cups from Michaels. Don't they make great flowers...if only we could grow our coffee ready made so we would just have to go pick our daily latte....

Enjoy your hopping and thanks for stopping by!
