coffee and friends...

TGIF!!!!

Seriously, TGIF....

I was super thrilled to see that The Cutting Cafe was 2s4y's Sponsor this week!

btw, did you happen to catch Laura's spectacular GCD news??!!


I couldn't have been more thrilled when Regina came out with the coffee sets!!! I've ALWAYS been a fan of her Circle words and had to give this fun version a try!

It's the perfect shape to fit in an image...I picked a fun A Muse Coffee Mug..

All the patterned paper is Jillibean...black and kraft...can't go wrong with that...isn't that pop of yellow fun?! Yipes, I did it again..another yellow card:) I actually stamped the A Muse image on the backside of the Jillibean kraft so that I would have it match perfectly:) Lotsa stitching...I used the tiny zig zag stitching on the middle panel...that is really tiny for my old eyes...I distressed the edges with PTI white snow...obviously within eyesight on my work top...haven't put it away since yesterday's card...LOL.

I'm trying to do different stuff or use neglected stuff on my cards...today's neglected is the A Muse mug....the different stuff is my Dotting...the white around the sentiment and the steam for the coffee...I seldom do anything by hand on the exterior of a card...little by little I'll do some things...

Check this out my lovely DUTCH friends!

Anything fun planned for the weekend?

  10. Enjoyed this post today, how you pointed out different things that you've done on the card, and I wouldn't have guessed that the dots were hand done either! Keeps it real.
