peace love & a venti

Click HERE for the Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop!



Here's a little something:


I took the Reverse Confetti Sweet Treat Tent and die cut an upcycled piece of cardboard.  Truthfully, it is actually a pretty 'loved' piece of cardboard.  The otherside was in much better shape until I did an oopsie on my stamping.  

I splashed some Opaque White Mister Huey's onto the sweet treat tent and thought that I majorly ruined it since it seemed to 'bleed' but I stepped away from it and when I got back...it was fine.  Obviously, I need to use my Huey's more often!

I did a major bit of fussy stamping for the sentiment.  I combined Pretty Sentiments with a sentiment from the Hot Concoctions set.  

How do you like my Anthro-like mugs?  They have been paper pieced with Studio Calico Wonderland.

I stuck some adhesive tape onto the clothes pin and sprinkled glitter onto it....love the extra glitz it gives the project.

Everything is nestled onto a Whisker Graphics Notebook Middy Bitty Bag.

Just to be clear, the white splotches are snow, not bird droppings :)

Typing about snow, I'm linking up to
