Life Is Good

Hello again,

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I made several cards yesterday morning and even a few more yesterday afternoon. A couple are for challenges that end tomorrow so I'm going to have a few blog posts today to squeeze in my submissions.

First up is a card that I made for this week's Freshly Made Sketchs challenge.

I had way too much fun with this Fall coffee card, and I used many products to make it. Love Cindy's sketch this week and I'm definitely saving it in my "sketches" folder for another time.

I started with dry embossing the front of the card base with a TE embossing folder. The square of patterned paper, cross banner and oval are all cut using Die-namics. The focal image is form Reverse Confetti and the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn. I have the tools and I'm using them all, LOL.

Here is the inside of the card:

More coffee fun from a gal that doesn't drink it.  I hope you all have a nice and relaxing Sunday afternoon.

  2. Oh what fun cards! I do love a coffee card and that oval frame is such a great way to use the sketch. Glad to see you this week at FMS!
