hey there...

Happy Tuesday...

I'm back to work today but it is a 4 day work week!

Having some fun with a rainbow of colors...



I paper pieced those a-dorable Paper Smooches to-go cups with vintage Basic Grey...Cupcake & Perhaps....patting myself on the back for my Use What I Have mantra.  It's the first time the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler has gotten inked up...the card is actually 6 inches tall to accomodate the cups....

I was inspired by the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge:




Gotta love all those words...seriously.

I'm also linking up to the DYSU ladies:


How fun is that pic collage?!

Thanks sooooo much for stoppin' by...I do appreciate YOU!
