A Cuppa Love 4 U!

Good Morning my sweets! It's mid-week and that means the weekend is almost here!

Even better than that is my exciting news that I am now a DT member for

So honored and excited to be able to create with Heather's Java-liscious designs at Fresh Brewed Designs

For my introductory creation I used Warm My Heart Mug.
When  I saw this, I thought of Heather, as we've become great friends over crafting and our love of JAVA...hehehehe.

I kept it pretty CAS as I wanted the focus to be on the sweet image, and used soft pastel colors. Maybe, it is just me waiting for SPRING! ;o)
I colored the image with SN Markers and Moondust gellyroll on the sleeve stitching. 
 CS is from American Crafts & DP is from stash. Bling and flowers are also from my stash.
There are still a few days left to play along in our challenges!!
Our month long CHOOSE YOUR CHALLENGE

 "Java nice day!"

I Love You Truly!

Hello my crafty friends! 
I have a sweet little card to show you,But first,
 let me share with you some seriously fabulous news! 
Are you ready???

Well I'm delighted to tell you that I am now a member of the Dream Team!

What's is the Dream Team you ask? Well it means I am on the DT for 

You really need to check out the sweet, amazing images Diane has...there is something for everyone and every occasion! Of course the DT Gals are just fabulous and have some amazingly beautiful creations for you too!

Since February, is literally around the corner, I decided to make a CAS Valentine's card. 

I used Chalkboard Valentine Love, and I have to say, 
I love how versatile this set is and know I will use it plenty in the future.

Now without further ado...


I just loved the Teal and Peach in the chalkboard sentiment, so based my design around those colors. 

My CS is from American Crafts and I embossed the peach with Grunge Lines EF from Embossaliscious.
I finished it off with Twine in peach and natural with a button. I then used Liquid pearls in the corner to balance it out. 

I sure hope you enjoy this card as it was a delight to create. 

Be sure to stop by next Wednesday to see my next creation and check out more of Diane's Images here!
