Hello Everybody!

I have been AMAZED by all the summer coffee lovers inspiration and ideas I have seen since the hop kicked off yesterday morning. Today, it’s the second day,and I have got a cute summer coffee lovers scene to share with you today! You can get all the details and link up your own coffee inspired project over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog right here:

It’s time for a summertime picnic with lots of treats, including a nice cup of coffee or tea. This card was created entirely out of die cuts with inked edges and a few bits of foam pop dots to add a little dimension. If you like what you see, leave a little blog love and you might be one of the lucky commenters randomly selected to win some fabulous surprise blog candy!

Romantic Roses with The Card Concept Challenge #76

Hello Everyone!

It’s time for our latest challenge over at The Card Concept! This week’s inspiration photo is a real American Beauty, Romantic Roses! You can get all the details how to play along and link up your creation over at The Card Concept blog right here:

I love the deep, rich red color of these roses, and also the unusual placement on the background.  Is that a window shutter?  I made a Clean and Layered card by using a tiny spiral die to create red rolled roses in a window box. It’s a very simple CAS design, with the focus right on the roses. It’s a very romantic morning at the house!

Thanks so much for joining us today, and all season long with The Card Concept!

Paper Sweeties June 2017 New Release Rewind!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the last day of our brand new release, the New Release Rewind! There’s so much going on over at Paper Sweeties, you won’t want to miss a thing! We have inspiration, ideas, beautiful new stamps, dies, and embellishments, and you can find it all over at Paper Sweeties right here:

For my New Release Rewind, I made a super simple and sweet card for my hubbie! I just fell in love with our new Madison, because she looks just like me! That’s the fun of our Paper Sweeties people, they can look like whoever we want. Madison wears her hair just like me,  and she dresses just like me too. I never wear shoes! Every morning, I think that I am lucky to be getting up with my hubbie. He’s my sunshine on a rainy day! He’ll know Madison and Jake are just like us, hanging out on the weekend. I used the brand new Madison, the brand new Aloha, our old friend Jake, Jake’s tee and shorts from Score, those adorable cascading hearts from Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and the Sweet Cuts from Thanks.

Take a look at what our super sweet design team has created for you today!
