Coffee anyone?

Well, it wasn't a good weekend for stamping, but I did manage to get one card finished. I was in Joann's this weekend and found the cutest K & Company brads that I just had to find a use for them. I made this card using Inky Antics stamps - and my K & Co brad. I actually designed the card around the brad - I picked the paper and ribbon that would match and went from there. Since it was a deep chocolate brown I thought something with a coffee theme was in order. See what you think. I hope you like it!


Stamps: Inky Antics. Paper: Stampin Up! Chocolate Chip, Designer Paper Misc: K & Co brads

Bad Blogger

I'm sorry I've been such a bad blogger - seems I just never have enough time to stamp. By the time I get everything done around the house it's usually time to go to bed! This weekend I picked 6.5 pounds of strawberries at a local greenhouse. The strawberries are hydraponic so you just stand and cut them off the stem - pretty neat. It took me about 20 minutes to pick them. Then, I made strawberry freezer jam. I was able to get 20 jars - which was 3 batches. It came out pretty good, even if I do say so myself. Next, I am going to try peach jam.

Well, here's a card I haven't shown you before. I just love the American Art Stamps Emerson line - so funny. The paper is from a Glitter Stack I bought ages ago at Joann's. I also used some Stampin Up! Barely Banana with it. I used Copics to color the image.
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy 4th everyone! I hope everybody is having a great holiday! Today I am going to share this Rubber Romance card with you. Once again, I did some paper piecing to add some interest to her bags. I hope you like it!

The stamps are Rubber Romance and Inky Antics (sentiment).

I am hoping to find a little time to stamp this weekend - but I'm not counting on it.

Enjoy the long holiday weekend!
