Coffee is Always A Good Idea

It should be no secret that I love coffee. When I find coffee related digis I am beyond excited. I along with my mom, her sister, my sister and my niece love to sit around drink coffee and talk. This image was a Saturated Canary freebie! IKR. I colored her with Copic Markers. I chose this design paper because I wanted the card to have a vintage feel and the blue matched perfectly with her "denim" skirt. A Spellbinders Label die is peeking just outside of the matted image. The flowers are from my stash with the brown ones being cut using the Cricut Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and was cut with a Dienamics Fish Tail die. I think I'm incapable of creating a card without adding bling so of course I had to add some.

Ribbon Die Cut

When I think of the ribbon symbol, I always think of breast cancer. While I am a breast cancer survivor, I also suffer from Sarcoidosis. I realized the ribbon Frantic Stamper Inc Large Support Ribbon die could be used to bring attention to any number of illnesses. The image from Saturated Canary can be used in much the same way!

Ode to 50 Shades of Grey

Just in time for the movie release...here's my Ode to 50 shades of Grey. It's also just in time for the Sassy Studio Design Progressive Challenge!

This card also gave me a chance to audition some of the new Frantic Stamper Inc dies. The design paper is from DCWV. I colored the image with Copic markers. I used the Frantic Stamper Inc Arrow Card Sketchers (set of nine dies) and Follow Your Dreams dies. I think both are perfect and make this card come to life. I added both pink and clear rhinestones for just a touch of additional sparkle.
