Made the card yesterday and was going to post it, but instead of doing our normal morning swim that we have been doing this week my nephew and I went last night and it just didn’t get done. By the time this morning came I realized I just didn’t like what I had made and wanted to remake it, so I did, and thankfully I have just enough time to still submit it to the summer coffee lovers blog hop (I hope!). read more
Last year I didn’t get the chance to make Independence day cards. We were taking care of three of our nephews and that was taking up the majority of my attention, this year I am starting before school is out (just barely) and we are not doing as much child care. read more
I love this card! I keep imagining a quaint little coffee shop with this being the scene outside in the morning. What a great place to visit, especially if it were your birthday! I have to admit that I borrowed a technique for the balloons from a recent blog hop and I can’t remember who to credit with the amazing idea, but they are just cut out of card stock and then covered in Ranger Glossy Accents which gives them that balloon-like quality.
I miss coffee 🙁 I have started to be able to drink cocoa though and it is making me happy. My husband just surprised me with a new teapot the other day and it reminded me that I need to work on finding a tea that I can drink, I think it is mostly that I need to stick with herbal.
I am finally done doing administration type stuff, well I am always doing some but I am done with the big block I was doing. I hate trying to keep on top of stuff that isn’t fun creative stuff. I know it seems like I probably don’t have a lot of ‘work’ to do, but honestly, it sneaks up. Keeping everything organized is a job in itself. Anyway, that’s done for at least a couple of months (if I keep up with things).
