I used the Paper Sweeties Mason Jar stamp set to capture some of the fun! It works perfectly with the challenge photo and is very popular with the design team this week! Take a look at all their amazing creativity and inspiration!

Love Among the Pines

Hello Everyone!

I had a little extra time this morning and decided to play along with this week’s Tag You’re It Challenge #50. I love the two tag look and the bright, cheerful, summer colors. I grew up in the great North woods of Wisconsin, so summer always reminds me of pine trees!

You can play along with the Tag You’re It Challenge #50 right here: http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.com/2016/06/tag-youre-it-50.html

Strong Black Coffee

Hello Everyone!

Today is my last entry in the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop, Have you entered your last coffee card yet? There’s still time to link up right here: http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2016/06/summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop-2/

I found this great quote from Death Wish Coffee Company:

     When your blood runs black as the blackest night, and your heart sounds as the warrior’s march, only then may you say, “I’ve had enough coffee.”

I love it! I wanted to create a card with coffee loving warriors, whose blood runs black as the blackest night! Sometimes you just need really good, strong coffee to get you through the night, to feel your heart pumping as the sound of the warrior’s march!

With almost 800 amazing coffee themed cards and projects so far, I am doubtful I will be able to comment on all of them. I have enjoyed this hop immensely, loved all the inspiration and ideas, and would love to thank the organizers and super sponsors for one amazing coffee loving week!

Thanks for joining me today!

MHKDesigners Inspiration: Michele

MHK designs

Hello Everyone!

Today I am over at the mhkdesigns blog with this card I designed using the new, I’ve Been Framed release! You can see more great inspiration and ideas over at the mhkdesigns blog right here: http://mhkdesignsbymynn.blogspot.com/

I just love the Kahlil Gibran quote, and I thought it would go perfectly with my Tree Triptych die cuts from Poppystamps. One of the things I love most about mhkdesigns images is how I can easily use them with my favorite die cuts! I can create beautiful CAS images or lush layers!

I’m not sure if I feel like this before I get my coffee or after, but I think these little monkeys love every drop! The Teacup Stack and the monkeys are from Poppystamps, and the Swaying Palm is from Memory Box.
