Doubling Down

It's been an "interesting" day. And not happily so. Day four of migraines. Just wanted you to know that in case this post turns out really weird. While I was writing and editing yesterday's post, an idea popped into my brain for a card using the same two challenges; Muse, and the Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I'd expound more on each of these two wonderful challenges, but my brain isn't functioning as well as it should. Sorry about that. What I can say, is that they're terribly fun! Do consider joining me at both! Once again, it was Jenni's card that really inspired me. Her card makes my heart happy:



I just love Jenni's card!


And my card:


The pink gingham is from my scrap files, as is the black card stock. All stamps are from PTI, as is the cup die, and that's an AE bow. Those cupped flower-shaped pink sequins are from Paper Sweeties, and there are green sequins under the outer two in my feeble attempt to add a teensy bit of another Springtime color, and to give the impression of leaves. It's a good thing that this was not terribly difficult to make, lol! Since I can feel my brain draining onto the floor, I'm heading off now. Hope you're enjoying your weekend, and as always,

I'm sorry about the four days of YKW and hope you get a break tomorrow, Bevie. You always amaze me, being able to even MAKE a card, let alone make one that fits not ONE, but TWO different challenges! I think the melding of the two worked perfectly!! Lots of love and hugs, Darnell

So sorry your on day four of migraines I hope that was it for a while. Ive been pretty good with mine and only had two days in the last fortnight which I am cheering at, so sick of the buggers. Your card covering two challenges that are a mile apart in meaning yet you have done it perfectly. Amazing what a migraine brain can do. Love it, really hooked on the gingham with the coffee cups, perfect. Take care Bev xx Aileen

hope you will feel better soon, Take care Bev!
Both of your creations are so cute!

Ardyth said...

Oh, your poor head! I hope you're feeling better very soon, my friend. In Canada we (well, not me) order 'double-double's (double cream, double sugar) in the coffee drive through, so that's immediately what I thought of with this sweet, feminine coffee card. So glad you joined us at Muse again this week!

Rebecca Yahrling said...

I think this is so darling. Cute design.

Migraines are the WORST!!! Four days of them? Yuck. That would just put me over the edge!! LOVE your take on these challenges. I like the pink gingham and the hanging coffee cups. Such a cute idea!!

Brenda said...

I hate to hear that you are on day 4 of a migraine Bev, I wish they would come up with something that worked better on them for you migraine suffers! I loved that sweet baby card, but I love how it inspired you to make your coffee card!!! It's a sweet as the baby card! Hugs, Brenda

You are really on a roll, Bev! I love your coffee cups, and that you chose Jenni's design for your card...so cute!

Oh Bev, I'm so sorry to hear of your bad string of migraines! I'm hoping by now you've kicked it out and are back to creating freely. Big hugs to you! Lovely card with your trio of coffees. So glad you were still able to share it!

Yep...my new #1 Fav Bev Card. The mix of patterns between the gingham background and the coffee card sleeves looks so cool! Sweet little bow - nice bling!

Hope by now that your YKWs are over and done with; sending extra hugs and love, just in case. Marveling at your oh-so-clever translation of the baby clothes into coffee cups...one for you, one for me and one for sweet Geri! There: let's get that girl talk happening!
Hugs, love and misses,
