oh yes, you did!

So, who has a card making hangover?

LOL

Lotsa fun yesterday, hope you were able to get crafty for World Card Making Day!

Today, Darin & I are hoping to get out on a flight.  I always love to go to Friday Harbor, but we’ll see where we end up!

It’s no secret that I LOVE color:
paper:  amy tangerine/plus one  stamps:  avery elle brushed  ink:  zing white  other:  whisker graphics large tag, bright white divine white, canvas corp clothespin, avery elle ballons die
I love the Tags from the Whisker Graphics Shop.

I used the Avery Elle Balloon die with vellum.  I adhered the Bright White Divine Twine with a dab of glossy accents.  I read that is a good adhesive with vellum, and yup, it is.  The sentiment and paint swooshed are from Avery Elle’s Brushed set.  I’m on a big white embossing kick these days.

I had a surprise yesterday:

Yes, that’s a screen shot of the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Gallery and check out the Cover Photo, that’s my card from yesterday!  Now how fun is that?!  I’m a big fan of flickr and always upload my photos there, do you?


I wanted to chat about the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:

I tell you, that was one awesome hop!  The inspiration was amazing but the best thing was everyone just having FUN!  It’s fabulous to know that I’m not the only one that enjoys making coffee inspired cards.  I was thrilled to even read non-coffee drinkers playing along, now how fun is that?!
