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.

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 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!

Coffee Lovers blog hop - Day 1

Hello fellow coffee lovers. It is Day 1 of the Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers blog hop. It seems I always start out strong. I typically try to get my cards finished before the hop starts, but I haven't had time this go around. So hopefully I will have more than one entry. LOL!

This year I have taken a break from some of the Design Teams I was on and am focusing on improving some of my techniques. It has been fun incorporating some of the new Tim Holtz products into my card making.

 I also started a new blog called "The Daily Enabler" where I hope to capture current deals and steals all in one place for crafters. I would love for you to check it out.

I picked up some Lindy's Magicals and I used them on my background. If you have never seen this product, I have a video which walks you through my process in creating this card.

I also used some of the new Tim Holtz ideaology that was released this year at Creativation.  One of my favorite items this release is the paper doll collection. They are fun additions to my cards and mixed media items.

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

I also entered this card into the SSS Monday challenge theme "Layer it up."
