text happy coffee cards

There's a train of thought in these coffee cards... it was prompted by the CASology challenge of "text" and since there's still time to play along with the Coffee Lovers Spring Bloghop, coffee is the only theme this week.... (and since we're counting, I broke the winter hop tally, this bring the total of cards I've posted for this hop at 41).  So I'm totally "hustling, #likeaboss."  Can someone explain to me what the sentiment should be to own the fact that I am my own boss and proud of it?  Maybe it should say "hustling, #liketheboss" or maybe "hustling, #ladyboss"?  All good... just an early morning, no milk for my coffee train of thought...  

Another take on the current MFT Sketch Challenge.

trio of coffee tags

Happy Monday, take 2 (see here for my earlier post), I didn't want to lose my obsessive compulsive Monday morning PTI Make It Monday agenda... (even though I had a number of other things to do before work today that I should've done instead).  So... go figure, instead of making one project...I made three!  The issue when you have all sorts of fun pieces out and in front of you.  The Make It Monday challenge is to take a straight sentiment and make it curved, such a simple trick.  And the other two tags are just me, being me, for the Coffee Lovers Spring bloghop.  I will be at a work conference tomorrow and Wednesday, but I might be back with a few more projects on Thursday....

Too much Monday...

Who can resist a little Monday morning coffee fun.....  Playing along with more Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop fun.

Another card inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge.

Sunday Coffee Fun

Crafty peeps... I'm back...  with more fun.  Seriously, I feel like a little kid who gets so excited for Christmas or a birthday.  More coffee fun for the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  I have this weak spot for coffee & cookies in the middle of the afternoon, so the first card, inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge is channeling my inner cry for espresso and cookies (my preferred combo, in case anyone wants to know is a small latte and a chocolate chip cookie).  My first card uses the Greeting Farm latte, Sugar Pea die cut, Paper Smooches cookies, MFT sentiment and dies from MFT, Hero Arts and PTI and Distress Oxide inks.

I went to Ben Franklin yesterday to buy supplies for my 11 year's old school project... and I will admit that I bought the pad of paper yesterday specially for this sheet of American Crafts True Stories.  I got the Lil Inker woodgrain die cut, having way too much fun... see below.  The sentiment on the girl boss card is from Butterfly Reflections.

Inspired by the current CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

This one takes a nod to the Altenew March Challenge, as a rule follower I'm not sure that the Altenew products (the sentiment) are the focus... but I enjoyed making the background inky fun with the inspiration photo in mind.  So with that I wish all a fabulous Sunday...  better get back to work over here... excited to say that I'm hosting a photo meet up this afternoon for #WWIM15.  I will be back tomorrow with more coffee goodies....

Coffee Goodness Overload

Happy Saturday, take 2.  If you don't like coffee cards, I highly recommend coming back to visit me in a week.  In the mean time I'm on overdrive and having way too much fun playing along with the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  The first tag was take 2 for the PTI March Blog Hop (see the coffee card below with the die cut cup for take one).  I wanted to do flowers, but then decided that I'd rather just be inspired by the colors.  Everything (minus the cute Paper Smooches cookies & May Arts ribbon) on the tag is from PTI.  Click here to see the inspiration source and the rest of that hop.  And the rest of the cards are just me playing... sometimes you've got to stretch your stash and ink 'em all up (hence why there will be more cards, my apologies to the super star commenters for the Coffee Lovers hop), today's post brings up my current tally to 24 projects, but who's counting?

given enough coffee

Okay, round 2 for the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop... you knew I was going to go overboard, right?  If you don't like coffee, please check back in with me in a week.  The first card is inspired by The Heart Desires Challenge.

This CAS tag was inspired by the current Reverse Confetti sketch challenge.

Inspired by the new Altenew Sketch Challenge.

This card is a CASE of ~amy~'s recent card.

I heart coffee

Welcome to the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop... I might...cough cough... have a small addiction problem to coffee themed coffee stamps, so I love this hop.  It inspires me, encourages me and usually ends up costing me money.  So... last round I made over 40 cards, while ~amy~ says I don't have to beat my record... we'll see...  So with that in mind, here are some cards to start this hop off.

Inspired by the current Mojo Monday sketch.

Tag inspired by the current Ellen Huston Pin-Inspired challenge.
