Coffee = Happiness!

Coffee......manna from heaven! :-)
With my love for coffee, you know I had to have this stamp set! 

Strong espresso is my drink of choice, and Starbucks meets that bill for me, so this card was done in the colors associated with them. You, of course, can use any color combos you'd like and it would work out great! I'd love to see what you come up with!  

I used "Coffee Cafe" stamp set and "Merry Cafe" stamp set.
The little coffee cups and coffee pot were cut from the "Coffee Break" DSP.
Use your crimper to create the texture shown at bottom of the card.

Have fun creating your coffee cards!

One Little Piggy!

Adorable, adorable stamp set!! Had to have! :-)

I've met a few people that have little pink pigs as pets, and after seeing those little things in person, you kind of get it. lol They truly are SO cute! I'll stick with my cuddly, sweet, soft furred dogs though and just enjoy the cute piggies in my stamp set. :-)

Keep your little pigs a nice clean pink, make 'em dirty & muddy or make them purple or blue! 
It's all in the power of your creation! :-)
I stamped mine on Blushing Bride card stock, and with my Aqua Painters threw on a bit more pink for shadowing and then used Soft Suede to add a bit of dirt from her mud bath before she decided to take a nice stroll through the flowers. :-)

Have fun with your little piggies!

"Do something creative every day."
What a true sentiment! Whether it's cooking, baking, decorating, writing or crafting....its about doing something every day that you love and feel inspired by! There's so much in life to enjoy so lets find the time to create a little something every day. :-)

Neat little set by Stampin'Up! called "Crafting Forever."

Break out your Aqua Painters and ink and have fun creating!

My 14 years old daughter LOVES mermaids!
Now, don't get me wrong, she also loves make-up, fashion, high heels, talking back and of course....boys! :-) Yes, my teen girls are also trying to grow up too fast, so you are not alone.....we Mom's and Dad's are all turning gray together! :-) So, when I saw the new "Magical Mermaid' stamp set, I knew I had to have it and figure out a cute design for her.....anything to hold onto the small things that peek out and show us they are still little girls at heart.

Hope you enjoy the design as much as she does!
Have fun with all sorts of color....and of course don't forget the glittering diamonds to make your mermaid shimmer!

~Happy Stamping!
