Turkey Talk

Let's talk turkey.  This one has been pardoned because it is delivering the coffee!

The background was made by using distress inks.  The images were stamped and colored.  The coffee cup the turkey is holding was fussy cut.

Thanks for stopping by.

Simply said, COFFEE

Going a little retro today with the coffee.  I wanted to thank everyone who visited this blog and those who visited and left comments on my blog for the fall coffee lover's bloghop.  I would also like to say how creative all of you are!  I love to see the cards you have made and posted. 

I would like to thank Amy for all her behind the scenes work.  And, she does it four times a year for us!  She also has great designers on her team to bring us fun, fresh inspiration on the blog.

So Amy and Design Team, this is  simply said, thank you from the bottom of my coffee pot!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!

All That Glitters IS Coffee

Recycling paper with this glittery card.  The back paper is from a gift certificat at the stamp store that has been spent, plus some!  The polka dot paper is from a wedding thank you card.  The image is from STAMPlorations.

Now, off to get some liquid glitter from the coffee pot!  Thanks for stopping by.

Mr. Coffee

I saw these stamps at Crackerbox Palace and they just tickled my funny bone!  The come in both rubber and digi and since I wanted to do this for the CLBH, digi won!    I thought this vintage paper would be perfect to make a card.

For Hetty who runs the coffee lover's swap, this is the card that was sent this month and it should have arrived to her today.  I wanted to say thank you to Hetty for the work she puts in behind the scenes arranging the swap.

Have a great day and enjoy your Java!

Coffee Run

A little fall fun for you today.  This card features STAMPlorations Birds Of Paradise stamp set.  I love these birds and love the new die cuts that STAMPlorations have introduced to match the stamp set!  This makes making a card easy peasy!

Have fun hopping and thanks in advance for your comments!

Did I SCARE the coffee out of you?

Sometimes, my mind wanders...when I am drinking my coffee and cards are created!  I had this doily and pumpkin die cut sitting in the box and paired them together to make this coffee card.

I hope STAMPlorations does not mind the altered coffee cup because I think this card is a dandy for the fall season!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Boughs for the Wreath

Using Mojo Monday's sketch and Mo's Digital Pencil image, boughs for the wreath was created.


  One year when my son was little, a friend taught me to make wreaths.  My son, with a red jacket on, rode in the wheelbarrow on the way into gather the boughs.  He was so eager to help and it was such a fun time. 

The red paper is embossed with snowflakes.  Colored pencils were used to color the image.
