Chocolate, Men, Coffee...Some Things Are Just Better Rich

Happy Wednesday!! Sorry it's been a while since I've posted...I am having a super-busy end of the month. I will be gone this weekend, too, so I may not be around to visit you until next week.


I have a card to share with you today using some products I've won from some awesome friends. The gorgeous flowers are from my super-sweet friend Cheri of DJ's Sundries...thank you again for everything Cheri, I love it all!! And the fabulous Fresh Brewed Designs stamp is from my super-sweet friend Vanessa of Vanessa's Paper Creations!! Thank you again, Vanessa - I adore it!!


The black base is from The Paper Studio. The next layer is a Julie Nutting Prima Tag with the top cut off. The rest of the paper is from Prima's Printery paper stack. The awesome image was stamped with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink onto a Spellbinders Labels 1 die, with a Spellbinders Decorative Labels 1 die behind. She was colored in with Tim Holtz Distress Markers in Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, Crushed Grape and Frayed Burlap. I used the "Out of the Box" technique to cut the die. The background was inked with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.


The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and the tag is a Spellbinders Back to Basics tag. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Coffee & Tea Treats stamp set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art Thankful Thursday- May Linky Party
  2. Sunday Funday #9 - May Linky Party
Thanks so much for stopping by today :)

This made me laugh so hard! Isn't that the truth!!! Love the design!

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, I apologize for this huge delay... my present for Ashley is taking so ridiculously long. I've not been able to afford breaks to visit my crafty friends as I had hoped. Only God will help me complete it on time.

This card so beautifully showcases your incredible ability to design. :o) Yes, the elements themselves are marvelous but without a blessed eye for design, it won't come together so harmoniously. You *always* have the perfect layouts for your projects. :o) I love the goodies you received from your sweet crafty friends. The flowers are stunning and I love the image. The base of it is so gorgeous! Beautiful work on this fun card, my sweetest friend! I'm sending you extra sparkly hugs this weekend!

Hugs and blessings!

VanessaB said...
