Coffee | Enough Said

When I was creating this card and couldn’t come up with another part to add to the sentiment, I thought, you know All you need is Coffee.  lol..

So, here is Coffee.  Enough said. 


When I saw this week’s sketch over at Sugar Pea Designs, I saw a cut out, so that is what I created.  I cut out this paper from the Happy Days paper pack, and die cut the cups from the other side. 

I used the Coffee die from SPD, but I hadn’t picked up any of their coffee sets yet.  I have so many Coffee themed stamp sets, I can’t seem to bring myself to spend more on them when I wanted other fun things from SPD! 



I die cut the word three times and adhered them together.  I also added the cute coffee beans and the sequins to finish off an otherwise simple card.  .



We are off to the last MS track meet of the year today.  And you can bet I’ll have my coffee for the ride there!!  And maybe find some when we get there.  Track meets are early!  Smile 

Enjoy your weekend friends!! 


I have a NON-stamped card today!


I was digging through my embellishments, and found this lined paper which I thought looked like it would fit on the Retro Sketches sketch challenge.  So then I dug around for some more embellishments and went crazy!!


I just picked up these wood words from Stampin Up because they are retiring.  And they are fun with this wooded button. 

Love this!!

We are ending out our last full week of school.  I.  Can’t.  Wait!!!  SUMMER!!  Ha. 


Thanks for stopping in for the visit! 

Enjoy your day!!

Sweet Birthday

One of our sweetest family friends is having a birthday this week.  We love her dearly and don’t see her enough, but we know she’s a huge supporter of us as well.  I wanted to make sure we made a special notion to remember her this year!



I used the new May SOTM, Celebrate with Cake for the main image.  I added the Sweet because we call her Sweetie.  I pulled out the La Vie EnRose papers and embellishments to create this fun card.  I also added some Silver Shimmer trim.  LOVE THAT STUFF!!


I am excited to pick up some flowers and deliver this to her!  ♥


Don’t forget that my Beyond Awesome Card Class closes tonight!  Be sure you sign up!  Check it out here. 



Check out this month’s SOTM HERE as well. 

Wild Thing

I don’t even know what to say about today’s card.  I was so excited to make it and to see it come to life!!  And I’m also sorry, not sorry for my love of this Tickled Pink stamps and Thin Cuts!  HA!

This card is super simple, but I did create a fun video for you! 

Enjoy – you can also watch on YouTube HERE!




I wanted to play with the newest challenge over at The Paper Players.    It was a perfect excuse to use this set again!!  LOL...

That is all for today!!

I do want to remind you that tomorrow is the last day to enter my Beyond Awesome Online Card Class. 


Enjoy your day!!

You're Awesome!

Hiya Peeps!! 

This card is so far outside my norm, which is probably why they call them challenges!!  I am playing along with Inspired By All the Little Things challenge today and it was tough!!



The challenge image is below and I dug through my stash to find something that would work.  I found this little image form AMuse Studio and colored in some of the triangles.  I used my Copics and my Gold Wink of Stella.  **glitter**

I made this a smaller 4Bar size card so that the image didn’t get lost on a bigger card front.  I finished it off with some twine and sequins. 

It ended up a super cute lil card!  I love it. 

Thanks for challenging me and inspiring me!!


And thanks for the visit today!!

Tomorrow, I’ll have a fun video for you all!  See you then!! 

Some Kind of Awesome


Yesterday, we are sadly celebrating a few ladies who are retiring this year at work.  I shared one of the cards awhile back and finished up this card this week. 



I created this card for the secretary at our high school.  She is some kind of awesome and has been working in this position for a long while!! 

I am using the Happy Days Paper pack and the Beyond Awesome stamp set.  I paired them with the new white twine and these fun sequins.  The sketch came from this week’s Mojo Monday.


Both the paper and this stamp set are part of my Online Card Class for May.  You can find the details HERE. 



We are rained out of some of our weekend events so I’m going to tackle some things around home this weekend.  We are on the countdown to 4H pigs arriving and it’s time to let the turkeys out of their pen. 

I hope you enjoy your weekend!


Thanks for the visit today!!
