good coffee...great friends.





Today I'm super excited to spend time with some crafty friends (Kate & Kimberly)!  I'm crossing my fingers that I actually get some crafting done...and perhaps start on my holiday cards!

So here's today's card:

cardstock:  neenah, stampin' up lost lagoon  paper:  stampin' up  stamps:  taylored expressions/joe to go  ink:  hero arts hues, sharpie pen  other:  studio calico veneer, misc glitter washi

I used the Taylored Expressions, Joe to Go stamps & coordinating dies.  See that smidge of glitz?  That's washi tape!

I'm linking up to the following challenges:



So I threw this out as a challenge to some gals and Tonya nailed it HERE & Kimberly rocked it HERE. I have a new love for Stampin' Up and love a good challenge.



This one had my name written all over it.

...last but not least



Super sad to see it close...it's been such a great wealth of inspiration for me.  I was on the team but took the summer off.  I thought I would feature some of my favorites from the challenges:








Okay, that's it for me!
