Even tho I haven't been blogging, I have been doing lots of creating.  Can't wait to show & tell.
Gonna start with a challenge for the Coffee Lovers Cardmakers Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I have a lot of coffee stamp sets and I love coffee, what could be more perfect. This is a pretty simple card for me.  I really like all the white space.  That little swirl of steam is from a Paper Smooches die set.  I am looking forward to participating in more challenges.
Thanks for stopping by,

Today, I am participating in a new challenge:Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights ChallengeThey choose something on Pinterest as inspiration and then we use the new Essentials by Ellen products to create something:I have chosen to use my only Essentials by Ellen stamp and die set, Bold Blooms by Julie Ebersole.  The stamps are very high quality and they come in heavy plastic envelopes for storage.  The dies also come with a magnetic sheet.  I love when products are packaged so nicely. I am a huge fan of Julie Ebersole's.  If you have never seen her videos on You Tube you should make a point of checking them out.  She is a crack up, just love her.

HOC September Challenge

Hi there, It is, once again, my turn to provide inspiration at the  House of Cards September Challenge.
This month we were provided with a color/photo challenge:
Love these beautiful Autumnal colors. I used a new die from Wplus9, with some  blue scrap paper in the background. Paper pieced an old CTMH set.   I really enjoy paper piecing, love the little bit of dimension added with patterned papers.  Ribbon, a button and a twine bow finishes it off. Please join us at the HOC Challenge or just visit to see all the gorgeous inspiration from the DT.
Thanks
