warm wishes...the seattle way.

Happy Tuesday which is kind of my Friday:)

I'm taking tomorrow and the following monday off from work {woo hoo for mega long weekend!}....but tomorrow I might be going on a field trip with my boy and his friends into Seattle so while they are doing their thing, I'll probably go into work for a couple of hours...we'll see how things end up...you know how kids are.

I have a fun 'winter theme' card ala Seattle style:

Can you believe that it has taken me this long to ink up that fabulous Paper Smooches Hot Concoctions?!!!  Well, you'll be seeing it alot from now on:)  The 'warm wishes' sentiment is from EAD Designs, it is a co-branding Paper Smooches Christmas Sentiments Stickerz.


My card design is based on the current Case Study


I love CASE Study

Check out the fabbie Kryssi Ng's card:


She's such a rockstar!

I was inspired by the text background.  I used the placement of the buildings for the coffee to-go cups:)  I  used a doily on top and added my sentiment...wish there was enough room to stamp out:

peace, love & coffee

I'm also playing along with the jingle belles.  I simply cannot believe this is week 47 of 48 weeks....oy vey.  That means it is almost December peeps....whoa...scary.


This week's prompt:

make a card for your friends or family who don't necessarily celebrate christmas

I'm pretty sure everyone should celebrate coffee...

Can you tell that I'm super glad to have found my Echo Park For the Record?!  All the patterned paper is from that collection.

thanks for stoppin' by!!!
