lucky me.






I love a good challenge.

I've been wanting to play over in 


I picked up a ton of the new Essentials by Ellen before we left for Japan and I'm just now getting to play with them.


I knew that I wanted to use the Laurel Wreath, in gold, but of course!  Then I looked over my Lawn Fawn goodies and HA, are you surprised that I added the coffee mug?

cardstock:  recollections/110/white  stamps:  essentials by ellen/fancy thanks  ink:  ranger/archival/black, picked raspberry distress ink, various copics  other:  american crafts gold glitter cardstock, beading hemp twine

The sentiment is from Fancy Thanks...oh, I LOVE that set.
