Good morning all
Hopefully you are reading this (scheduled) post!
I'm away on my hollies in Florida but didn't want to miss out on this lovely challenge at
Moving Along with the Times
the theme is
Food and Drink
I made this card for my hubby's birthday in January - anyone who knows him knows why!!
He's just a total coffeeholic - can't pass a coffee shop when he's out and the coffee pot's always on when he's at home. I've had these lovely dies from Apple Blossom crafts for a while - but they were bought with him in mind but also so useful for lots of cards both male and female. I love them!
It's an 8 x8 inch card and there was lots of die cutting, inking and matting and layering involved - quite time consuming but nothing complicated at all. As long as it's all lined up well it's a really easy card to make - and one of those that gives you a sense of satisfaction at the end!
This is what I did .....
Dies and stamps -Apple Blossom Crafts - lifes pleasures collection
Papers - LOTV Country Gent pad (now discontinued)
Black, centura pearl silver metalic and craft card - Crafter's Companion
Distress inks - Tea dye and brushed corduroy
Hope you'll join in with our challenge this time - I'll call in to see all your yummy makes( if I have a few moments here by the pool!!)
