Coffee and Cream




Well it feels like we have fast-tracked this week to Friday! :) lol.  Which is not a bad thing as my internet has been throttled again until the end of the month, so its like pulling teeth uploading pictures - bah!. 

Anyway, it doesnt stop me crafting :) so I made this card today using one of my favourite LOTV images (Pom Pom).  

I didnt really want to make another bright and fizzy card, so I have opted for a bit of coffee, cream and dark chocolate.  I distressed and hand-stitched K&Co papers, die cut some chocolate leaves and used gold stickles.  I used the sketch over on Cute Card Thursday, and also followed the themes of coffee and cream on Simon Says Stamp and circles on the Lili of the Valley challenge.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Coffee and Cream
Cute Card Thursday - Fab Sketch by Christine
Top Tip Tuesday - Bling it on
A Spoonful of Sugar - Birthday Wishes
Bearly Mine - Ribbons and Pearls
Do You Stack Up - Anything Goes
The Ribbon Girl - Pink, Brown and Cream
Rainbow Lady - Shabby chic
Frosted Designs - Use metal - I have metal charm and 2 metal brads

Thanks ever so for popping by and commenting, and I wish everyone lots of luck in these challenges. :)

Love it Alison, I have got to get some more of those LOTV stamps, they are just so cute.

Considering I have had the week off I have not managed to make one card, never mind do a bit of blogging!! I did pop to Hobbycraft though yesterday and picked up the MS doily lace punch :)
