Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!!

Good day and it's Friday!!  Welcome to the 2016 Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!!  If you want to know more about this fun hop and how you can participate, click on the link and read all about it.  It is a fun way to craft it up with other coffee/tea/hot chocolate lovers.....wahoo!!

We are in Florida for the winter but I did bring a few stamps with me along with my copic markers and some paints - so I can get my craft on - so to speak - when I'm not on the golf course or BASKING in the sunshine (sorry snowy weather people)

I brought my Reverse Confetti "Coffee and You" stamp set purposely for the Winter Coffee Lovers  Blog Hop.  I knew it would be a perfect set.

I staged my sweet elephant out in the snow with his little mice friends and some extra coffee.  I tucked the little coffee cups into the snow bank - made by die-cutting the round edge from Reverse Confetti Edgers Confetti Cuts - and topped one of the cups with a cute mouse.

I added the Reverse Confetti Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts along the "sky" and added sequins for sparkle.  The sentiment is also from the Coffee and You stamp set.

Simons Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge is all about Ice this week - so I am entering my creation into their challenge as well!

Being Kind is Never Wasted

I was able to get my hot little hands  on some of the new Concord & 9th stamps - specifically the new Kindhearted Bundle which includes the Kind die and Kindhearted stamp set - SCORE!

I was not aware that Concord & 9th had a challenge blog until yesterday - so I am just in time - even cutting it close hah! - to submitting my creation.

This month it is all about Sparkle and Shine so I stamped up Hello Lovely and set myself up to watercolour.

These sweet flowers remind me of Vinca flowers, so I watercolored them with a bit of purples and greys and blues.

I wasn't really sure of my finished product - but after adding some Wink of Stella, Diamond Dust Stickles AND some sequins I was sold!

I diecut the Kind die with Royal Velvet cardstock three times, adhered them together and then glued it to the bottom third of the watercolour panel.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment and added some sequins and DONE.

Pop on over to Concord & 9th to enter this challenge - but I think it ends today - so hurry!!!

Enjoy Your Watercolour Day!

Good Morning- we are certainly settled in to our winter home and LOVING it!  Punta Gorda is just beautiful and the surrounding area is full of antiques and unique stores.

I'm late for the latest Curtain Call Challenge (a natural thing that I do lol) but since I had just finished organizing my crafty space - and my Zig Markers were handy - I decided to use the photo as inspiration regardless.

Using one of Suzy Plantemura's Birthday Notes watercolour sheets exclusively from Simon Says Stamp - and my Zig watercolour markers - I had some fun!

These sheets are 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" - so after watercoloring, I trimmed down the panel and popped it up onto MFT Natural cardstock base, wrapping some MFT hemp cord around the panel before adhering. This twine is so popular that is is always out of stock - GAH!

Thank you for coming around - I hope to blog more often this winter now that I am situated again whew!

You're Cherry Sweet - except for Google

Good day - cripes, I was almost locked out of my blog.....gotta love google.

The current sketch at Reverse Confetti and the beautiful colours at Color Throwdown were my focus today for my card - sketches and colours - thank you for making this card an easy one!

I stamped and diecut using the cute stamp set from Reverse Confetti - In a Jam - along with the matching Confetti Cuts.

Using the sketch and colours I assembled my card and stamped the sentiment along the bottom - that is from Fancy Word Coordinates.

Short post today - Google has me frazzled!

Thank you for visiting today - I'm off to clean up the yard so we can head south in a couple of weeks - dang winter is coming yikes!

Sweet Treats!

Good Morning!  The Card Concept has a couple of days left to enter a creation for their challenge - so I was up for the game!

Look at this delicious-ness!

I just love Suzy Plantamura's watercolour sheets so I pulled an image from the Suzy's Birthday Notes group and, using my Zig Real Brush Markers, I watercolored to my hearts content!

This just happened to be my grandson's birthday card too - all yummy and fun!

I backed it onto some Papertrey Ink patterned paper and then added a few clear baubles for fun!

Thanks for coming around and check out The Card Concept won't you?!
