The Cat's Pajamas September Release


It is release day for The Cat's Pajamas! All seven of the new stamp sets, four fabulous new Cutups dies and two new Cutables are available now in The Cat's Pajamas shop

If you came from  Christine's blog, you are on the right path. If not, then start at the beginning with Julie's blog. And speaking of Julie, she is our TCP Tuesday hostess for this rotation with a beautiful color challenge.
For this card, I used Big, Fat Holiday Greetings and The Birds CutUps.  I kept this one pretty simple by heat embossing the sentiment and adding the bow.  

Now it's time for you to continue the hop.  You are heading over to Lisa's blog for some amazing projects!



Coffee Lovers Blog Hop-#3


I just wanted to make one more card for the coffee lovers blog hop! It's a pretty simple card using Hero Arts' Need Caffeine Set.  I used the Just Add Ink sketch.  Thanks for stopping by!  

Poppy Sketches #14-Starving Artistamps

It's time for a new Poppy Sketches challenge.  We are being sponsored by Starving Artistamps again!  This time the team had the chance to work with the Doodle Factory Halloween stamps!  
Aren't they spook-tacular?  Now check out the super fun sketch and amazing colors of the Poppy Sketches challenge and link up for your chance to win some fun, new stamps!  

Coffee Lovers Bloghop--Card #2

Today is National Coffee Day, and to celebrate there is this incredible Coffee Lovers Bloghop happening!  This is my second coffee card.  For this card, I again used a combination of stamps from different companies. I just love all coffee themed stamps and images!  The sentiment and cup is from Hero Arts' Need Caffeine set.  Those darling coffee beans are from The Alley Ways' Breakfast Club.  The coffee cup rings are from a Gel-a-tins set called Coffee Break that I've had for quite some time. I went for a monochromatic look with lots of yummy browns.  What to join in the coffee fun?  Link up here with your coffee creation for a chance to win some amazing prizes!

Coffee Lover Bloghop!

I am so excited to be participating in the Coffee Lover's Bloghop!  Before the introduction of frappuccinos, I wasn't a big fan of drinking coffee.  I always loved smelling it though.  I would purposely walk down the coffee aisle just to stop and smell it.  Then I was introduced to cold blended coffees at Gloria Jeans while vacationing in Matazlan, Mexico.  I was totally hooked!  Now my hubby and I have our own frappuccino maker and have one every morning.  I prefer caramel flavored, while he goes for the pumpkin spice.  On weekends, we either go to Starbucks or to a local gourmet market complete with a java bar--Pirate O's.  Besides liking my coffee cold, I LOVE all the coffee images available in the crafting world.  This card sports coffee cups from The Alley Way's Breakfast Club.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts' Need Caffeine? set.  Aren't they wonderful?  Be sure to link up your new coffee-themed project at Cuts, Crops, & Creativity today for a chance to win some amazing prizes!
