Give me coffee!

Hello lovely people,

Happy Sunday folks and I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend whatever you may be doing.

I have been enjoying a catch up with friends and just about to start my day with some yummy homemade banana pancakes with blueberries and maple syrup - mmmmmm :-)

While I tuck into those, I have a project to share with you using some gorgeous goodies from The Ribbon Girl.

I couldn't resist making another card with this beautiful paper pad and I have to admit that aqua is probably my fave colour after pink.

I also took the opportunity to play with yet another new stamp and this time it's an adorable little girl with a coffee cup...this could be me as I do need regular caffeine hits throughout the day to function properly!

I do love the shabby chic look and have admired many a card with cheesecloth and/or chipboard pieces on them but haven't really being confident enough to try these...until now!

I am really pleased with how it turned out :-)

I was clearly feeling very experimental with this card so also decided to pull out the stamens from the turquoise cosmos flower and replace it with a sparkler...ooooh, that is so sparkly and gorgeous!

  5. I too love that paper and coffee of course. The little image is coloured beautifully and that frame is just perfect to bring the focus in to her isn't it?
    I think you've done a great job on the cheesecloth, it is as you know one of my favourite things to add to a card to soften the edges and shabby it up a little without making the whole card look like it's been savaged by the family pooch. I love experimenting, though admittedly my efforts don't always end up on my blog lol!
    Have a great Sunday :) xx
