Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hi all!  It’s hard to believe that Summer is over!  It seems like it went really quickly!  But now that Fall is fast approaching, it’s time for the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  Each of the four  seasons is celebrated in coffee, tea, and hot cocoa!I’m thinking Halloween for this one, so here is my card:

This cute vampire would rather drink coffee than anything else for Halloween!  The die set is Mama Elephant for the vampire called favor bag accessory Halloween, and the Taylored Expressions joe to go die for the cup.  I used kind of shimmery paper that I had for his face and hand, to give him a bit of an eerie look.  I had the background paper in my stash and printed out the sentiment on my computer.  Please check out the other wonderful cards on the bloghop, and there are great prizes too!!  Thanks to all the sponsors and to Amy Tsuruta, who always does a fabulous job as the Co-Hostess!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Swoosh, It’s Your Birthday!

Hello,  We have a Great-Granddaughter who is a super basketball player!  She is on her high school team, and even though she is a sophomore, plays junior varsity and even varsity sometimes.  She just loves basketball!  So this is the card I made for her birthday:

The basketball is just a circle cut, and I drew the black lines, and then used an embossing folder to give it some texture.  I tied knots in twine, to make the net for the hoop and printed up the sentiment from my computer.  I know that she will love it!  Happy Birthday Avery!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Taylored Expressions 9th Birthday/Texas Strong

Hi,  Happy Birthday to Taylored Expressions!  They are having a big celebration for their 9th birthday! The Taylored Expressions 9th Birthday Sketch Challenge! They chose a sketch and are challenging card makers to use it as inspiration for their own cards.

I chose to make a card for the people affected by Hurricane Harvey.  My husband’s daughter lives in Houston. While she was safe from the flooding, she is sad for her city and for Texas, as we all are.  My card today is a dedication to those suffering, and to the volunteers who are helping.

I used the Taylored Expression banner stacklets 1  and the sentiment is from the set called shade tree scripture.  I had the sticker in my stash and it was perfect!  I intend to send her the card as soon as mail is established that she can pass on to a friend or another person who is in need.  If you would like to donate to victims of Hurricane Harvey, here is a link to  local Houston charities that she has provided https://www.houstoniamag.com/articles/2017/8/29/donate-to-these-local-houston-charities, there is also the JJ Watt relief fund,  Samaritan’s Purse,  and of course The American Red Cross.   “Be Good!”  Debbie
