About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Life Is Beautiful

It's Sunday evening here on the West Coast. As we are fond of saying, "a school night," which means tomorrow is work. Weekends just go by too, too quickly.

I had a little stamping time today and managed to make another card for the 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I combined a couple of sets, nestling this cup of coffee among some spring flowers. My layout is based on the current CAS(E) this Sketch.

I did lots of masking to make this card. It was actually fairly quick once I got the 3 masks cut out. The flowers are from the Altenew set called Spring Daisies. The coffee cup is from Reverse Confetti.

I hope you all have a great week. Thank you for looking in,
