thanks a latte



click HERE for the Neat & Tangled October Release:  Day one



So, in case you didn't know...I love all things coffee.  I gravitate to all the fun coffee themed crafty stuff and love anything coffee oriented on Pinterest.  I WISH I had the luxury of spending oodles of time on Pinterest, but honestly, there just isn't enough hours in the day!

My Favorite Things just came out with a new coffee stamp set, Perk up and die set, Coffee Cup.   I had to add them to my ever growing coffee collection and threw in some other goodies because I was a lucky winner in one of their glorious blog hops and received a $100 gift card (WAHOO!}.  

Coffee + Persimmon = a happy crafter

paper:  basic grey persimmon  stamps:  mft/perk up  ink:  wplus9 white, zing white other:  mft coffee cup dies

Um yeah, Persimmon is my go-to fall collection I love to work with.  I teamed it up with my MFT goodies and had to throw in the chalkboard technique too.

I challenged by friend, Erin to the MFT sketch challenge...we're both challenge junkies.
(Erin, I totally forgot to incorporate something that I haven't used in 6 months!)

This is actually the first time I've linked up to their sketch challenge, but it certainly won't be the last!


Thanks so much for stoppin' by....I'll be back again at 5 am pacific with the start of Neat & Tangled's October Release week!
