Just A Note

 This sketch from The Coffee Loving Papercrafters sip and share is adorable!  I love the addition of acetate.

This card uses a scrap of paper in the lower corner on the inside of the card   The outside of the card uses a scrap of acetate and  a recycled canvas name tag from a wedding shower.

A Snowy Christmas

A gate fold card with a little twist. 

 The top and bottom edge were cut revealing the center of the card.  This also gives a llittle room for some embellishments!

Colored pencils were used to color the image.  Silver paper adds the Christmas glitz.  A few embossed snowflakes and evergreen die cuts finish the gate fold card.

AAH, that sip of coffee in a hoodie to warm the soul.  

Using autumn colors and a gold patterned paper, color was blended in to create the background.  It was placed on a kraft base.  A coffee sentiment was embossed in white.  The cup was embossed in white and fussy cut.  A leaf and gold bow was added to complete the card.

Take A Moment

This is a color page card.  Using one image on the 12x12 page, it was colored and cut out.

Using some twine, a button, pp, the colored image and a stamped hello a card was created!

Taking a moment to listen to the birds sing lets you ponder what is really important in life.

Snack Sack

Snack Attack!  This snack sack is big enough to put all your candy desires in...but watch might scare you when you want to remove your candy!!

This is a Bugaboo digi image.  It was colored using colored pencils.  I color, buff, color again and buff one more time.  It seems to make the color bolder.  I used Crayola oil pastels on the edge to give it a spooky feel.  This sack is so much fun!
