Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut
Hold on to your lug nuts folks, this post is jam packed with fun! ;)
Once again I must tell all of you again how touched I have been by your love and support for me through all of my cancer journey. It's not been an easy road to walk by any means, but each of you has been cheering me on along the way, offering the most wonderful comments, cards, emails, texts, phone calls, and sometimes even little gifties. Thank you again for all you do to encourage me on a daily basis! :) Physically I haven't been doing so hot these past few days, so you really do brings touches of sunshine into my life!
With this, one very kind person, Samantha, reached out to me last week and asked me to join her on not one, but TWO Design Teams. how could I possibly tell her no? ;) She knows my limitations right now and is so accepting of what I am able to do. Thank you, Samantha!
So today's card is a 'two-fer' - for my new team at Top Tip Tuesdays as well as a Party Time Tuesday contribution. how wonderful to have people surrounding me with so much support! thank you!
Top Tip Tuesdays is also welcoming another new member, Lisa S. so please pop by her blog and give her a big ol' howdy! The challenge for the week is - One for the Men - Masculine.
Top Tip: Sometimes small buttons have holes that are just too tiny to try to get even the thinnest of twine through. Pull out your handy dandy white gel pen and draw a few well placed lines between the button holes. It looks just like twine! :)
Party Time Tuesdays challenge this week is to be patriotic and show your country's colors.
Please be sure to go by the blogs to see ALL of the amazing inspiration by the Design Team! whoa nelly, can every one of these people on both teams really craft their little hearts out! :) you will be so impressed!
My card is made with an image from The Digi Garden, senti from Create with TLC, papers from K & Co. Americana, natural ribbon from May Arts, and washi tape from Etsy. I used stickles to accent the badge I made. the image was paper pieced and highlighted with my white gel pen. the lilttle ticket I actually found on the ground coming out of JoAnn's one day a long time ago. my sons laughed at me when I picked it up, but I knew it would be perfect for a project one day! it had been stepped on so many times it was already pre-distressed for me. I picked up litter and re-cycled it onto a project! wooo hoooo! can't beat that with a stick! ;)
