Relaxing with a coffee

Hello lovely people,

Happy weekend to you all!
I am not planning on leaving the house all weekend; as far as I'm concerned it's a good weekend for crafting, watching a film or two, and plenty of coffee!

Today I have a project to share with some gorgeous goodies from The Ribbon Girl because our new 'Use any image' challenge is starting.
As usual, there are 3 fabulous prizes up for grabs so do check out all the details on The Ribbon Girl blog.

Now, talking of coffee...

Handmade blue floral vintage style card featuring girl with coffee (image from LOTV)

I have used pink for this image twice now, so thought it was time for a change, so here is Jasmine in blue!
Ok, I still snuck in a little pink for the mug - lol!

The corrugated card is back again, but for this card I actually peeled the back layer off to make it less bulky and rigid.

For the large flower I pulled the stamens out of a cherry blossom and added the pearl and diamante flatback instead, which I think gives a lovely touch of glamour.

  11. Bit of a sore subject as my hubby has just knocked over the lovely latte that I just made for myself to have with a sneaky chocolate chip cookie, and when I went to grab some kitchen paper to mop it up with, I came back to find my cat sat on my chair with his paws on the table licking the chocolate off my soggy cookie. So I lost both my latte and my cookie! ARGH. But, I still love your card (it's what I'd hoped to be doing myself!) and your layout is so pretty. Gorgeous hun. xx

  12. Such a great image Kat and I love the blue and your card design..the flowers and corrugated board look fabulous..

  16. I really DO love that corrugated card too! It's brilliant on this design and Jasmine in blue is beautiful! Love that you snuck the pink mug in though, that made me smile! Beautiful lace and I love that pretty pearl cabochon too. Gorgeous creation hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo
