Happy Birthday Diana!!!



post 2 of 2 for today...click HERE for the Reverse Confetti Creative Hop


I'm thrilled to be a part of a Special Birthday Blog Hop for Diana of the Latina Crafter!   The Design Team, Alumni, Illustrators and me....are celebrating Diana!  You should have arrived the Latina Crafter Blog.  If you get lost along the way, the hop listing is over on the Latina Crafter blog.

I met Diana through Giovana Smith, a Washingtonian and a Design Team Member of Latina Crafter.  Diana has been a long time Super Sponsor of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hops and has the most fabulous coffee products in her shop!  The mutual love of coffee always brings people together and what better way than through crafting?!!!!!  Diana and I were chatting one day about my birthday and she mentioned it was on the very same day as one of her childhood friends.  Well, it's a small world because Diana's birthday is the same day as my brother's!

Anywho's, you came here for craftiness and I wanted to share a super special shaker card that I made for today's festivities:

cardstock:  papertrey ink aqua mist, recollections/110/white, recollections gold glitter  stamps:  latina crafter i'm no quitter/coffee is better with a friend  ink:  ranger archival black  other:  memory box stitched circles, spellbinders pinking circles,  mft, rectangle stitched stax, lucy's little things/iridescent white, pretty pink posh gold stars

I combined Latina Crafter's I'm No Quitter and Coffee is Better With a Friend stamp sets.  I've been enjoying repetitive stamping.  I eyeball, I don't measure...I call it free form :)


I wish that I could capture the shaker mix in the photo....Lucy's Little Things/Iridescent White and Pretty Pink Posh Gold Stars.....the iridescent brings out the aqua mist and the gold stars bring out the gold stitching and gold glitter cardstock I used under the sentiment circle.


friend


no quitter

I think you'll be seeing more of this color combo...aqua + gold.  It was inspired by Colour Me:

It's the last Colour Me Challenge...so sad that the challenge is closing.  They have always had the most beautiful color combos!

Coffee is always better with a Friend....thanks for being a sweet friend Diana and I wish you the most wonderful birthday!!!!!


Next up is Beatriz Jennings!
