I. Am. Beat.
My cousin had a birthday party last night and her whole family popped into town for a visit. They live about 5 hours away, so it was a real treat! We went to a dueling pianos show last night and let's just say we definitely brought in the early morning hours in style.
But between the late night, getting up at 7 to start breakfast, and entertaining, coffee has been my best friend. Whew!
I'm going to keep this post as short and as sweet as I can:
Two things I want to tell you fine folks about:
Number one: Eclectic Ellapu's new challenge starts TODAY. The Pink Team's challenge is Anything Goes and the Purple Team is "Go Green", so head on over and enter all your awesome cards so the rest of the design team and I can come ogle them!
Number two: If you haven't heard of the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop by now, you should crawl out from that rock you've been hiding in and come join the party!
I whipped up a second card tonight using some stencils.
I started by sponging Mustard Seed all over the cards background and stenciling with Wild Honey and a stencil over the top. The cards are supposed to be spring themed, and there is nothing more springy than a fresh sunrise.
I added some Fired Brick and Vintage Photo DIs to the edges and stamped mug and sentiment from a Prima set. A little twine and a doily later, I had a completed card!
Pssssssst - if you like that sunburst stencil, I'm giving one away in my blog candy package. Leave me a comment and >>>include your contact info<<< and you'll be entered. It's not necessary to follow my blog, but if you do you'll receive an extra entry!
I haven't even had a chance to comment on most of the entries from the hop, since this weekend has been so jam packed. I'm headed off now to check out some awesome creations!
