Coffee Smiles

It's National Coffee Day so I thought I would make a quick card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

Lawn Fawn, as one of the sponsors, is giving away a Love You a Latte stamp set so I used the cute little cups and smileys from the set for my card.

I'm a 3-cup every morning coffee lover so I featured 3 smiling cups on my card!

I die cut the journal card from Sweater Weather "blustery" with a Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables die. Then I die cut a row of hearts using the die from Stitched Journaling Card and backed it with a scrap of Sweater Weather 6x6 paper

The coffee cups are colored with Copic markers and the fun smile sentiment is stamped with Hero Arts Cup o' Joe ink (I thought that was appropriate!). The simple finishing detail is a length of Orchid Lawn Trimmings tied in a sweet bow.

There are a bunch of great companies sponsoring the Coffee Lovers Bloghop with great prizes so you might want to join the fun today at Cuts, Crops & Creativity

Hope you are enjoying a lovely Fall day (or Spring day for my friends in the Southern Hemisphere) and a nice cup of coffee. Happy National Coffee Day and Happy Hopping!

Uriah is Three!

Oh my  goodness, it seems like just yesterday that Andy and Kellie were letting us know we would be grandparents and now our little boy is THREE! AND he started pre-school this week! Where does the time go? No really, where does it go?

Uriah is very much into monster trucks and Monsters, Inc so when Lawn Fawn came out with Monster Mash stamps and coordinating dies it was a no-brainer that I would use them for his birthday card. I colored those cute little monsters with colored pencils and Gamsol.

I also used Lawn Fawn's Finley's ABCs Lawn Cuts dies, Harold's ABCs and Violet's ABCs along with Simon Says Stamp Wide Stripes for the background.

inside I used Year Two, Harold's ABCs and Louie's 123s Lawn Cuts

This kid has my heart! I love his little pre-school cubby ♥

Thanks for visiting!
