Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hi, snow is falling everywhere, and it is time for the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop! A celebration of all things coffee, tea, and cocoa. Here is my contribution:

A sweet little fox ice skating! I thought it would be cool to take my photo outside in the snow! The fox stamp is from Savvy, and the skating lines and coffee cup are from Mama Elephant (arctic penguin and jolly and merry sets.) I used Altenew sea glass ink and the snowflake sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

Please check out the Bloghop, there are so many talented individuals involved and so many great ideas! Have a wonderful holiday season! Merry Christmas! “Be Good!” Debbie

Boo to you! Happy Halloween!

And here are some cute treat boxes I made from dies by Taylored Expressions:

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

Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop Card Two

Hi All,  This is the last day for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop and I made one more card!  Woo Hoo!

Of course you know that Mermaids need coffee too:

The mermaid die is from Gina Marie, and I added Martha Stewart iridescent heart glitter to her dress.  Her hair is colored gold with Wink of Stella.  The coffee cup is from a cute garage sale stamp that I stamped in gold Delicata ink, and cut out.  I printed the sentiment from my computer and cut it out with a tag from Mama Elephant Slim Tags Trio.  The starfish is from Reverse Confetti, again stamped in gold Delicata ink.  The background paper is from Momenta and I crimped it to make it look wavy.  The bubbles are from Pretty Pink Posh.

Be sure and look at the other cards in the Bloghop, they are amazing!!!  Enjoy the rest of  your summer and see you for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop in the fall!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Happy Birthday to Pika-you!

Hi all!  My husband and I have these really really cute Great-grandsons who love Pokémon!  So G (what he wants to be called)  was 4 on Friday.  I wanted to make him a Pokémon birthday card, and the only character I know is Pikachu.  (I need to better educate myself I think to keep up with these kids)  I have the Favor Bag Accessory – Bunny from Mama Elephant, so I thought I could adapt it to be Pikachu.

  I just cut pieces to make the black on the ears and made them a little more pointy, and hand cut the tail.  The happy sentiment is from Memory Box.  The inside sentiment I did on my computer and reads, Happy Birthday to Pika-you!  I know he will love it!  Happy Birthday G!   “Be Good!”  Debbie

Happy Easter Monday!

1 Peter 1:3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead… (NIV)  “Be Good!”  Debbie
