perk up!

This is post 1 of 2 for me today...click HERE for my Curtain Call Inspiration post.



Happy June!

So, if you've been following me for awhile, you know I love coffee and coffee stamps!

Here's one that I've had since for awhile, that was perfect for today's challenges:

cardstock:  pti stamps:  some odd girl breakfast friends ink:  memento tuxedo, copics bg11/bh10/e57/e27/r21 other:  lawn fawn journal die, cherry wood paper, stampin' up twill, italian wool, lil' inker circles & diamonds stitched pattern die

I'm no colorista but had to have the Some Odd Girl's Breakfast Friends.  Looks like there's going to be a SOG New Release tomorrow with more food stamps..sigh.

See the woodgrain?  It's cherry uncoated paper...love it and hoard it ferociously.  I picked it up several years ago from Paper Zone (RIP) and it doesn't have a manufacturer listed on the packaging so I'm guessing it was exclusive to PZ.  


The banner is fine italian wool that was RAK'd to me years ago from Lorena...yes, I hoard that too (see the underlying theme here?!).  

I was inspired by



I super love what taheerah designed so I wanted to make sure that I went a different route.  

kawaii pillow = kawaii coffee mug
wood panel ceiling = cherry paper
sweet banner = wool die cut banner
bedding = quilt = Lil' Inker Designs Circles & Diamonds stitched pattern die

I was also inspired by



What's on the agenda today?  I'm meeting up with some girls for coffee but hope to get a ton of crafting in before I leave.  I've put away my photo tent (for now), the real estate has been taken over by my new printer!  I've been enjoying taking natural light photos of my cards but I really have to be organized because I live in Washington State and some days we just don't have much natural sun light.
