Oh, Frap + a Giveaway!





I've been wanting to ink up my Your Next Stamp - Java Geek set:



I combined it with the coordinating Java Geek Dies and the Doodlebug Design - Fun in the Sun paper pad!  I added some texture to the base panel by using the Pink Paislee - Citrus Bliss Embossing Folder!

I was inspired by Kerry Urbatch's sketch over on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog:


I can't wait to see how the sketch inspires you!

Before you go, I do have a birthday giveaway for today!  It's Day 3 of 5...


Today I'm giving away a $20 Store Gift Card to The Heart Desires!  To be eligible, leave me a comment by Saturday, August 13th at 11:59 pm.  IF you are a no-reply blogger (see right side bar) you must also include your email address in your comment so that I can let you know if you won♡
