The card I ended up with today bears no resemblance to the one I was going to make. Changed the paper, changed the dies, changed the colour scheme and even eliminated the stamp I was going to use. It may not be gone forever, but it needs to “marinate” for awhile, I guess. In the meantime, the card below evolved and it turned out quite well.
I will leave it to you, dear readers, to decide whether the “Love Ya” refers to each other or to a narcissistic love of pumpkin spice coffee.
Where does the time go? For that matter, where did I go? It has been two weeks without a new post. It seems September is crazy busy, even for me without any school kids. It is also Scrapbook Retreat time and I have been away at a few of them. I have been creating layouts of the British Isles cruise that I was on this summer, and as a result did not have a new fall themed coffee card, in hand, and ready to go.
I did get a new coffee cup die since the last Coffee Lover Bloghop, so that was the easy choice for this first card. I liked the size of this coffee die from Sugar Pea Designs and I especially liked the embossed lid lip so I had to have it.
I think the card turned out well. In an effort to adhere to the fall theme, I made my coffee Pumpkin Spice flavour, but truth be told, I personally don’t like pumpkin flavoured anything.
Here is my first card:
I am working on some Valentine’s cards for, you guessed it, my valentines. Unlike my failure to bring Papertrey Ink stuff to Arizona, I seem to be well stocked with Valentine’s Day stamp sets. The challenge will be to use them all.
First of all, I have had a cute little die from Sugar Pea Designs for a while and was itching to use it. It is tiny but impactful. I kept the rest of the card simple to make it stand out.
