How've you bean!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Today's card is inspired by this weeks My Favorite Things sketch. I used Fiskars Latte Love clear stamp set and Bella Rose dsp(retired) to best fit this sketch. I started with SU! Chocolate chip card stock for the base of the card. Layered it with Whisper white and Bella Rose. The sketch didn't call for ribbon, but I thought it made the card prettier. And then rather than using a plain scallop edge, I used EK Success Morocco Lace edge punch.

I also use a the Folded fan flower technique to center the image of the coffee cup to keep in theme with the sentiment. I hope you like, happy creating!

Happy 4th of July

Hello folks, thanks for stopping by. Sorry for the delay on posting new creations, but I've been busy with starting summer school to become a Medical assistant. I'm very excited to start this new chapter of my life, i'm hoping things will go according to plan.... It's never too late to go to school and learn a new career or trade... especially during these hard times.

So today's card is thanks to this weeks Mojo Monday challenge. I was stuck for a while trying to create a special card for this sketch. But after a couple of tries and several trips to the craft store, I made up my mind on this I really loved this paper from Creative Imagination "Printed in USA". I came easy to me after that.

I think my favorite part of the sketch, would have to be the center for the sentiment. My sister reminded me of the fireworks, so I made some of my own. I hope you like, happy creating.
