Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and One More

Long post title, short post. No time to chat if I want to get this done today. So. Miss Amy and her team have put on another great Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and I have a very QAEZPZ card. Mostly NBUS, too. (For some reason, my computer isn't letting me add the SCLBH logo... sorry). My card looks like this:

The focal panel is from a kit; Jillibean Soup Healthy Hello through Archivers. I added the 'you' from an AE set. The scalloped die is from PPP, and the base is a scrap. The greens are prettier irl, but it's overcast today so it wouldn't photograph well. Green in honor of Miss Amy.

Next I have another QAEZPZ card that will go to CASology with the cue card, "Congratulations," and the sketch from CTS.

Here's my take:

The paper is from Anita, which she shared when we were at the Lake House. Yes, I've been hoarding - so would you! I made a panel and stamped with an AE set, and added one square bling. Popped it up on the card base, and done. 

Should time allow today, I hope to get to some commenting. Take care and happy dances everyone.

Michael's Birthday

As long as DH is settled in watching MLB Central, I have a couple of minutes (I hope) to write a quick blog post. Have I told you about my neighbor, Michael? He's only one of the best neighbors ever in the whole wide world. And it's his birthday today. We talk over the fence between our yards, and mostly, our conversations revolve around gardening and recipes. He's funny and really nice, and I tease him that he's like having a girlfriend living next door. We laugh like a couple of idiots; he's always a bright spot in my day. So I made him a card. Popping this one into a brand spankin' new challenge created by the very talented Kate Lorenzini over at The Heart Desires. Do check it out, and wait till you gaze upon the DT....wowzers. And while I'm at it, SSS Wednesday Challenge is for the guys/FD.

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

If you read the bottom of The Heart Desires inspiration photo, you'll see what elements can be included in cards for this challenge, and you can use one, two, or all three. I chose the blue color, and geometric shapes.

CAS. And EZPZ. Scraps of blue and white, along with gold vellum. Versafine black ink with a PTI sentiment. That's it. And I've got to run. Thinking of you all. Happy dances everyone.

Belated Birthday Wishes

I've missed a few of my dear friends' birthdays. Been a little wrapped up in things around here, but I actually did remember their days. I'll offer up DH as an excuse and leave it at that! Managed to get a couple of early mornings in the old craft room while my sweetie pie was sleeping in. And while he's watching my Cubbies win their game, (all settled in and safe in his recliner) I'm doing a quick post. Will just post a couple of cards for today.

First up is a card for Muse, where the ever wonderful Leigh Penner is guest designing this week. I used her layers as my inspiration. Let's peek at Leigh's card, shall we?

How cute is that?! Love the woodgrain she's used for this FD card. Mine is a bit different, but you can see my "exploded" layers which mimic hers.

Next is another birthday card. I made this card first, then went searching for a challenge; took me a second to find SSS Monday with a monochromatic theme.

Will catch you later kids; DH needs me again. Should you want/need the deets about either card, shoot me an email and I'll get back to you. Happy dances everyone.
