Sandra’s Card

When Sandra came down to visit me in Phoenix, she made two cards for me to put on the blog.  I put one on the blog, but sent my laptop home in a car with a trunk that was bigger than a breadbox, before I got the second one published.  I have a ToDo list that is about 30 items long right now, so I thought this was a good time to do a quick post with the other card.

Here it is:

Coffee Lovers Bloghop Day 7

I am hopping with joy today as I am one of the Flash Prize winners in the Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  I was lucky enough to win a die set from Stamplorations.  I think it has a coffee theme so I will have something new with which to make a card for the next Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  How cool is that?

Sadly though, my creativity was equal and opposite to my level of joy at winning.  Seriously, the recycle bin is overflowing with cast offs.  I wanted to do a card using inspiration from a card that Kathy Racoosin did on her 30 Day Challenge today.  I wanted to take her idea of mixing a coloured and a identical but neutral pattern together on a card, but at the same time make it a shaker card as well.  Several tries later, I finally came up with this card.

Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Bloghop

It is that time again!  Time for another Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  Time for me to be astounded once again at the number of never seen before coffee, tea and cocoa cards that can be created in one week!

I rarely put ready made stickers on cards, but these ones from Doodlebug were just too cute to ignore.  Then when I saw the Doodlebug paper that matched the stickers, it was all over.

Here is one of the resulting cards:
