Coffee.craft.repeat... seriously this Altenew sentiment is so perfect for me since I make most of my cards in the early morning while drinking coffee. This card was inspired by the CASEing DT Link Up over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. I went for a more CAS version of the card, using Lil Inker coffee cup, Hero Arts background, MFT tag, circle and leaves dies. Happy Monday!

Happy Sunday! I (cough cough) may have purchased a few new crafty goodies... in addition to a recent order from Winnie & Walter and Ellen Hutson, I also went to the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo on Friday... trouble. But then I came home and was overwhelmed by choices of new goodies... so we'll see if I can get over the too many choices problem. The first card is another entry for the MFT sketch challenge, I used some MFT dies, but the stamps are from Winnie & Walter. And the second card-- using inspiration from my Happy Camper Camp Brand Goods Sweatshirt.. made myself a happy camper wine card (Winnie & Walter script and PTI Uncorked wine glass) with my favorite colors.

Happy Wednesday! Inspired by the new MFT Sketch Challenge I used lots of MFT goodies (Wonky dies, the coffee cup and the MFT leaves), plus PTI banner die and Clear and Simple sentiment. Wishing everyone a fabulous day, I'm off on an adventure with my boys for fall break...

Happy Monday! This week's PTI Make It Monday challenge is to use die cuts as stencils and I used a Lawn Fawn leaf die to create this wine tag... because we all know that we need more wine at Thanksgiving, right?

So I made this card and liked it so much (and mailed it, bonus points for following through), that I made two more cards with the MFT sketch and a different sentiment. Since we have these amazing marshmallows at the campground that come in different flavors I'm trying to figure out which ink color is the right option... my latest favorite marshmallow is the Pumpkin Spice Latte and it does have a bit of a orange tint to it... but really trying to figure out how I stamp to look like a toasted marshmallow... oh the challenges...

Happy Wednesday crafty peeps! MFT new sketch is up and I finally found the Get Toasty stamps I got the other week (and then promptly misplaced, b/c a helper bee was working on creating a little more order in my life). For those of you who missed the little detail that we just built and opened a campground-- I "need" all camping/s'mores crafting sets... feel free to send me your suggestions. Yesterday I roped my friend Lenka into helping me with some photos at the campground and we started with photographing the new flavors of marshmallows (click here for a preview), can I tell you that the Pumpkin Spice Latte marshmallow is a-m-a-z-i-n-g (and I don't even drink pumpkin spice lattes!). So I need to send this card to Lenka as a thanks.... And below... there's a new Hero Arts challenge-- holiday cards. Is anyone at all surprised that I made coffee themed holiday cards?

Happy Monday! Playing along with the Mojo Monday sketch, these sketches scare me-- b/c I really do like CAS cards, but I find the to be good exercises. And the tag below is for the PTI Create With Us challenge, I used Lizzie's card as my inspiration.

Greetings.... I'm not sure what happened to Monday this week.... I think it might have been one of those days where I went to the gym, the grocery store, made breakfast/lunch and dinner and then went to work...so I missed my very small window to play along with the PTI Make It Monday (and then forgot about it? I got side tracked by the card class on Wednesday). Who knows, I'm full of all sorts of excuses over here... so... without further adieu, my card using frames as a background. My card uses MFT wonky dies for the frames and a PTI flower, Mat Stack sentiment and border. I bought some black embossing powder with glitter and the flowers have a bit of a s sparkle to them. Wishing everyone a fabulous Sunday, I'm at work with a list of to dos... wish me luck.
