Coffee of the Day - Maple Walnut
Yesterday I was playing around with some ATCs for Memorial Day. as I have said before, these little cards are really addicting! the small size is a challenge for a palette, but great for using those itty bitty scraps from your paper pads. every piece of paper here is a scrap.
the adorable images come straight from The Doodle Garden. all papers are from the Authentique Pride paper collection. Basic Grey really needs to get on the ball and come up with a patriotic collection of its own. otherwise, I think Authentique has the most beautiful 2 sets around with this one and Glory. I really really hoard the few pieces I have remaining! little flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and stars are punched from my ever present Starbucks coffee cozies, which were then inked with MFT whipped cream.
first ATC uses 'America the Beautiful' image and wood veneer stars by Studio Calico. some faux stitching and a wooden button tied with twine from a bag of dog food finish the little card. you know how I love to re-purpose as much as I possibly can! :)
next card uses the image 'Patriotic Posies' and a belt loop cut from a pair of old jeans before they hit the trash can. I love using these on projects!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and for your continued support for both myself & my family. it means so very much to all of us! :)
Update ----> today I received a call from the nurse who was there for my biopsies. she said it should be any day now that we hear the results. thought it was very nice of her to call to check up on me!
