Pink Pineapples

Hello,
Yes, this is my second post for the day and out of the norm for me, but I have a super cute card I wanted to share in recognition of National Pink Day which is today.

Here is a pic of my card.



Yes, those are pink pineapples you are seeing.  I love them.  I used the Pink Paislee Pineapple Embossing Folder with some pearlescent pink card stock.  I used a small panel card in the Citrus Bliss collection by Pink Paislee.  I stamped the cup, steam and Hello Friend sentiment onto it.  The stamps are from A Creative Journey with Melissa.  This set is called Coffee Is My Liquid Therapy.  It is a super cute set.   I then added some sequins, pink twine and pink butterfly.

I am so glad you stopped by and hope you have a lovely day.  I will be linking up to the following challenges and the links are below, Not Just Cards, Papertake Weekly, Through The Craft Room Door, Sister Act.

Challenges:

Birthday Happiness

Hello,
Good Morning.  I hope your day is starting off well.  It is cloudy here and looking like it could rain some more.

I have a lovely card to share with you today.  Here is a pic.


I used a base of DP called Citrus Bliss from Pink Paislee.  I mounted the laser cut panel to a black piece of cardstock.  I love the contrast this gives.  I then added the sentiment, which is found on page 21 in the Blue Ridge Inspirations Catalog and is called "Birthday Happiness".  You can find the link to their catalog in the side bar of my blog.  I also added some rhinestones,  flower and pearl pin.

Have you had a look at Blue Ridge Impressions Catalog?  They have some wonderful stamps, lots of Scripture Stamps, and many crafting supplies.  For example papers, inks, and colored pencils.  I know you will enjoy browsing through their catalog.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges and the links are below, Through The Craft Room Door, Sister Act,  Artistic Impressions, and Creative Fingers.

A Day At The Beach...

Hello,
Happy Summer!  I hope your summer has gotten off to a great start.  Here we have had lots of rain.

Today I have a wonderful card to share with you that is inspired by all the days I have spent at the beach in California.   I really wish I was there right now, I love it so much.  Here is my card.


I used a base of brown cardstock.  I watercolored the background and then stamped Seashell Border which is on page 66 in the Blue Ridge Impressions Catalog.  (Link is in my blog sidebar.) And Sand Fence which is on page 67.  I  added some Frantage to the shells for some texture (I love Frantage). I then stamped the Thinking Of You (which is on page 15 in the catalog) and inked up the edges and added the sentiment to the card.

I hope you stop by the Blue Ridge Impressions Catalog and have a look around, they have the most beautiful stamps and also carry many craft supplies to help you in your creative process.

I will be joining  a few challenges with this card and the links are below, Sister Act, Artistic Inspirations and Creative Fingers.

God bless you.

Challenges:
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspiration - Anything Goes/Twist of odd (I went with Anything Goes)

Floral Mocha

Hello,
Today is the final day of the Coffee Lovers Summer Hop and it has been so much fun.  I have loved seeing all the fun creativity out there in blogland.

And today I have a super cute floral and polka dotted card for you.  Here is a pic.


I used a base of navy blue card stock and then mounted some blue polka dotted paper.  The cup is from the American Crafts Shimelle True Stories collection and is from the sheet called "Mocha".  The steam was stamped with a retired stamp from Stampin Up.  And the sentiment is from Hero Arts Need Caffeine Stamp Set, and stamped in blue.

I am so glad you stopped by today and hope you have a lovely day.

Coffee Please

Hello,
WOW!  The week is really flying by.  Can't believe it is Thursday.  Today is day 7 of the Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop.


Today I have a sweet little bookmark to share with you for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  Here is the pic.


I used some white card stock, and the Bookmark Die from Avery Elle called Bookmark Elle-ments.  It is super cute and has several option to it for creating a cute bookmark.  My family and I read a lot and love bookmarks so I knew this was a die I would get my money's worth out of.  Oh and I love the dotting it puts around the edge of the bookmark.  I then stamped my image and sentiment in brown ink.  The stamp set is Coffee Town from Sweet Stamp Shop.  I colored in the coffee to go cup with a pink marker and added some adorable pink twine from The Twinery.

I'm so glad you stopped by today, I hope you have been enjoying the hop.  I have been, so much inspiration!!!  Have a great day.

Iced Tea

Hello,
I hope your having a lovely week.  It looks like it is officially summer here in the midwest.  The last two days it has just been delightful weather here.  But I know it won't last and soon it will be very hot and humid.

Today is day 6 of the wonderful Coffee Loving Paper Crafters Summer Hop.
Today I have a fun card using a digi image of a fun tropical glass of iced tea.  Here is the pic.


I colored the digi image (which I found one day while internet hopping and sorry can't remember the link) with alcohol markers.  The design papers are called Citrus Bliss from Pink Paislee.  I just love them and they are so summery and fun.  The slice of lemon is from the DP too.  I added a button to the middle of it for a little fun flair.  I added some fun pink sequins for a little bling too.

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you have a great day.

I will be linking up to the Coffee Loving Paper Crafter's Hop which is HERE.

A little bit of coffee and Jesus

Hello,
It's day 5 at the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

If your looking for the link it is HERE.

Today I have a lovely framed paper piece to share with you.  Here is the pic


I stamped the sentiment in turquoise, which is called Coffee and Jesus by Jillian Vance Designs.  I have to tell you that it is one of my favorite coffee stamps out there right now.  I mounted the sentiment onto the lovely floral DP from Recollections.  I then inserted it into the black frame and added the flowers.  The flowers are from Prima and Recollections.  I love this so much and have put it in my kitchen on a shelf.  It will be that morning reminder to me that the Lord is with me as I go.  I love that!

I am so glad you stopped by and hope you have a lovely day.  And I hope those of you continuing to hop, have a super fun day seeing all the great inspiration on the other blogs.

I will be entering this into the Summer Coffee Lovers Hop which again is HERE.
