Don't die of SHOCK, now;)
....I'm not sure whether I'm back or not. But despite doing this to my thumb yesterday,
I managed to 'woman up' & create both a LO AND 4 cards for the current KRAFT PLUS challenge:
We have moved into a retirement village & because the place is pretty much new, it means I've been cleaning [this has nothing to do with my coffee page!]....so I'm madly scrubbing the exhaust fan above the cook top, & somehow my nail got caught on the stainless steel mesh. It HURT.
ANYWAYS.... here's what I puddled around with today:
I do ENJOY my coffee. I was blessed that Tim's GF & her Mum, who live in Colombia, gave me
some REAL Colombian coffee after his visit over there. It's the best in the world...well, that I've tasted!!!!
Used some splatters & stamping on the bg & layers & stickers & some stitching, but I got mad cos it wouldn't sew properly. It's getting CHUCKED. I've had it for 34 years!!!
Anyways, that's why only one side is stitched!
Stuck a puffy heart over the wooden coffee cup! A lot of these bits came from Happy Mail which I've been REALLY enjoying the past year!
Now, onto the cards, using my new Brutus Monroe stamp set I've been wanting to try out!
As usual - some things never change! I've swung between CAS & lotsa MM....but that may've been because my Glitter pen SPILT all over the card.... ooooops :(
Anyways, I managed to save it!
The basis for all the cards was heat embossing of the coffee cup....then things sorta switched up as ideas struck. Sometimes I double heat embossed as the 1st coat wasn't fabulous.... & if you're going to do that- well, you might as well swap colours!!!!
LOL! Made an interesting effect;)
Anyways, I'm way rusty at this blogging gig....... I don't think I'll be doing this too much.
Maybe once a month? If I can get organised!!!
Take care now ~ here's to a very happy 2018 for y'all & thanks for checking this post out!!!!
