Tom has some Balloons for YOU! and a bit of news....

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Macadamia Nut

I have a new friend named Tom, and he has some pretty shiny sparkly balloons that he wants to give to you. Because you are very special! You are the best blogging friends in the whole wide world! You stick with me when I ramble and when I have typos and when I talk forever about my PASSION for coffee & pink shimmerz & coffee. You put up with me when I am sick and when I am on top of the world. So thank you dearest friends! You know you are the greatest and I love you from the bottom of my wee little heart! God has blessed me indeed!

My card uses this adorable image from Crafts 4 Eternity. Doesn't he just leave a warm spot in your heart? I followed the sketch/recipe challenge on their blog - use something clear as well as an inking technique while following the sketch. So the friend definition is stamped onto acetate - a technique I haven't done in over a year. how horrible is THAT?! ack! I added a rub-on for the sentiment - gosh, I am really becoming addicted to these things! My card meets the criteria for several other challenges so I will post those at the end. I dug into my precious precious Daisy D's paper stash, 'cause afterall, you are special to me and deserve only the best!!! :) Does anyone else miss Daisy D's as much as I do? anyhow, I added some fun little buttons and a simple ribbon bow to finish off the card.

Now on to my news......... several bits actually.

I have been invited to join 2 Design Teams! :) One is for Crafts 4 Eternity - the same company that brings us both the fabulous digi image (you should check out all of the ones available! wow!!!) as well as the sketch challenge for this card. The other team is as a Guest team member - I Love Digi - a new challenge blog. I will be designing for them 5 times over the next 3 months. But I intend to play along as much as I possibly can. You know how I am becoming hooked on all of these challenges, and theirs run every 2 weeks.

So I hope you will be playing along in all of these fun challenges with me! We'll have a great time! :)
