Something new for me, at the request of my friend Beau Monde, I have produced a card and am entering in the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I thinking I really am liking this type of challenge and will be looking for more to do. It really makes me think out of the box, and as Sandy Allnock has reminded us this week, put our "artist" brain to work.
So without further delay, this is my entry.
A2 sized card with an espresso colored base, Virginia Turtle Designs stamps and sentiment, with Fiskars brand Coffee Bean and Tea Bag stamps. Cups and beans are colored with Spectrum Noir Markers and then highlighted with Wink of Stella. Leaves are cut with Impression Obsession Rake/Leaves die set. 
Inside sentiment printed from my computer, die cut with Project Life dies. 

I hope you have enjoyed this entry, and thank you for stopping by my blog.

Crazy Birds Friends

Happy Sunday everyone. Today I bring you a card I made in which I call Crazy Birds Friends. This card was made on HP glossy photo paper cut to 4 x 5.25. I used Tim Holtz Alcohol inks in Citrus and Sail Boat Blue to make the background. The Stamps are Tim Holtz Crazy Birds colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and the Red Solo Cup is a sticker by Stickos. The sentiment I typed out on my computer and printed on Neenah Bright White cardstock and cut to size.
