It's Coffee Break Time

Good morning to all of you!! I hope that Summer is starting to arrive in your neck of the woods... seems like in the Summer, we have more energy, and make more reasons to go and be outside!!! The warm sunshine just makes my day, as they say.

Wednesday is our day to shine here at the

I hope that you are taking part in our challenges and enjoying your time with us... I do enjoy your stopping by to peak in on us. Our challenge this week was to use the Big Shot when designing our cards. Funny thing, I ordered some new dies that I didn't have yet, planning to use them for this challenge.... but for some reason, my card took a completely different turn, and turned out a lot different than I had planned. I'm hoping that happens to others and not just myself..HAHA!! I used several ink colors: Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Grey... the cardstock I used: Always Artichoke, Regal Rose, and Whisper White.... the Big Shot dies I used: Sizzix Flower Daisies 2, and Sizzix Embosslits Cherry Blossom... the stamp set I used was LeJardin Botanique. The embellishments that I used: 5/8 Neutral Brads, and Mellow Moss 1/4 grosgrain ribbon. When you look at my card, I hope you can see the 3 different colors that I used to stamp the trees. I hadn't tried using the inks like that on the stamps, but found it to be a lot of fun, especially when you are trying to show the light source in your project by the shades of your colors you use.

Leave a comment... I like to know that you have visisted and do hope you enjoy your time here, while you are looking around. I do hope you have a very pleasant Summer and that you are able to schedule some time for yourself to enjoy and relax and recharge!!!




  1. Yes, I can see the different colors on the trees, very nice!
    The weekend will be better here, but it's still fresh (over here Niagara Falls, ON)... Greetings!

  2. I think it is beautiful. I love the trees and how it looks like there is light shining through. The flowers are the added touch it needed to make it beautiful. Wonderful job, my friend.

  3. Pretty card. I like the color combination.
