chocolate, men, coffee....

Welcome to 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday!!!


We are happy to welcome back



Check out this week's sketch:


I actually made a 'tag card'...


I couldn't resist the sweet *wink *wink ink coffee cup...colored it with copics..you can't tell by the pic but it is backed by a kraft scallop circle...all the paper is ala Sherry, she RAK'd me some FAB Memory Box {thanks sista!!!!}...do you notice all the stitching?  The red strips actually have zig zag action on them:)

Doesn't the sentiment crack you up?  It is from the E.A.D Designs Stickerz Coffee Sentiments...cracks me up...perfect card for one of my friends {wink!}

I hope that you'll join us for the sketch challenge and make sure you check out the *wink *wink ink store!!!


I knew that I wanted to play with this *wink *wink ink sentiment...

Peace...gotta love that...I've fallen back to my CAS style...I've been enjoying using stitching as a border on card panels....I dug out {literally} my Stampin' Up Snowflake punch...the patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather...it's a good thing that I'm doing this Cosmo Cricket November Mitten Weather Project-A-Day dealio...I landed a 30 {Christmas} card order from a co-worker...before I knew it, I said SURE...haha...oy.

**CKC-Seattle**

Well, I made it to my first CKC...it was fun and I managed to NOT buy any paper...pretty good for me...although I did break down and buy the Lifestyle Letterpress kit....




I've been eyeing it for awhile and they had a pretty screaming good deal on it soooo...I just had to do it...

Check out who I got to meet up with...



Yes, I do have an armload of Maya Road goodies...haha
Okay, that's it for me...thanks for stoppin' by!
