I only need coffee....

So my friend ~amy~ wants to beat the last Coffee Lovers Bloghop number... and while I can't personally make 700 coffee cards in a week, I can do my best to help increase the total.  So, with that in mind, here are three more coffee cards.

creative fuel coffee cards

Yippy!!!  It's time for the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop and I couldn't be more excited.  I've got lots of projects to share.  My first card is for the current Reverse Confetti sketch.  And none of the other projects are based on crafty challenges... just me tinkering with various stamp sets.  The advantage to having such a robust collection of coffee stamps is the opportunity to mix and match.

Concord & 9th coffee coffee, Clear and Simple sentiments.

Concord & Ninth stamps

Clear and Simple coffee cup, Hero Arts holly and sentiment

Clear and Simple stamps, MFT wonky dies, PTI patterned paper

there's always time for a glass of wine

A CAS card inspired by my current mood. My girlfriend ordered these stamps (with my order of stamp organizers), so I put them to use before giving her her stamps.  Cheers!

you're awesome

A quick card to sneak in before the deadline of the MFT Sketch Challenge... I think if I had more time I would remove a layer... or change it up a bit, but it's all good, on with the day.  The coffee cup is from Neat & Tangled, MFT sentiment, MFT dies (5 different ones, can you spy?).

thanks, infinitely grateful

Happy Monday crafty friends!  It's going to be a busy week in my world, holiday parties, card class, my over the top cannot wait work blog giveaway...  so might as well get the week started on the right foot and post my PTI Make It Monday project.  I went for a simple version of the embossed background with outlines.  Honestly, I'm not sure I love the top card, but that's okay...  the frame is from MFT, the thanks is PTI and the sentiment is from MFT and I think the leaf is PTI.  The second tag is for the card class, it's actually the same as last week's MIM.  All PTI goodies.   And the third card for the card class-- Emily, look, I found my snowman (he was hiding at the bottom of drawer away from the rest of his stamp set).  (Lawn Fawn snowman, Hero Arts sentiment and MFT wonky dies).  Right-o...  watch out Monday.... (says the girl who ran into the box while doing box jumps at the gym this morning and has a nasty leg wound).

wine a little....

Happy Sunday! Sorry for being MIA (I'm working on some projects for the Coffee Lovers Hop and getting over that delightful cold).  But... since #amymademebuyit with the Reverse Confetti special last weekend, check out my fun project (with their December sketch) with the Clink set.  I used washi tape for the cheers sentiment, PTI background patterned paper, MFT circle wonky die, Waltzingmouse snowflake, PTI double sided banner die, vellum.  This sentiment truly sums up the holidays!  Cheers.

2 more holiday tags

Happy Monday!  I think I've returned to the land of the living, as my head cold it starting to taper off... you know when you wake up from a fog and then your head starts spinning and you look around your house and wonder how you managed to miss the piles on piles of stuff for the last 3 days?  Right, back on track today.  So, in the spirit of ticking off things on my to do list, of course I have to play along with the new PTI Make it Monday-- especially since it's about tags...   I could make many, but let's stick to two for today.  The top tag is almost all PTI goodies, the gold paper is upcycled from an envelope and the vellum is from my stash, as is the ribbon, but the paper, dies and snowflake are all PTI.  Since I have numerous PTI tag dies, super easy to mix and match and layer.  The second tag I made before I saw the challenge to play along with Day #26 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas tags, I was inspired by Carol's background and thought about what present do I want delivered to me on a sled?  A coffee drink!  This project uses Reverse Confetti larger tag die and geometric die for a stencil, PTI smaller tag die, Hero Arts sentiment and holly, Lil Inker coffee stamp.  Right-o, off to get my day started...  let's hope my cold continues to get better vs. worse.

have a happy holiday

Printed burlap... the great thing about challenges is that I see things and go, "Oh I have some of that paper", so thanks to Tracey's tag on Day #25 of her 25 Days of Christmas tags.  I think I have a couple others floating around, I'll see if I can remember to share them before the deadline... but in the mean time I've got a cold and am trying to just make it through the day.

let's get away from it all

Happy Friday!  It's time for another Tag You're It Challenge and I'm channeling my need for a holiday....  or that part of me that owns a campground?  Inspired by Lori's tag, love the green hues in the sky...  I'd love to see how you're inspired, please join us.  And since I was thinking starry nights and we're going to get our Christmas tree after work today, my tag below is for this month's PTI Blog Hop (I was inspired by the truck with the tree in the back).
