Today's Special...

Coffee of the Day - Texas Turtle (caramel, chocolate, and pecan)

I try to play along in the Crafty Secrets linky party every month. it's a great deal really, because everyone who enters receives a $6 gift certificate to their store. one winner will receive a $50 gift certificate! not only that, but there is almost always a free digi product of some sort each month at the store. you just can't beat that with a stick!

My card for this month uses images from 2 different sets: 'Little Chef' and 'Keys to Life.' one of the beauty things about png files is that they layer so nicely with one another. voila! my card! I could take the various sentiments from the 'Keys to Life' set and add them to the placard the Little Chef is holding. no pulling out what little hair I have going into an editing system to fix those white overlaps you get with a jpg file. hooray for that! ;)

papers are from the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry collection, itty bitty flower is Prima, enamel dots are Teresa Collins, linen thread is SU!, and buttons are from my stash. sorry I don't have any info about the stick pin. I took all of my pins out of their packages, if they were in any, and put them into a very pretty vintage pincushion I found in my antique shopping journeys. they look so nice in there, but I have no clue who made any of them. sorry.

hope your weekend is off to a grand start! Please be sure to stop back tomorrow for my next installment in the Inky Antics Guestie posts. :)

Crafty Secrets - linky party
Brown Sugar - anything goes
Creative Corner - eat, drink, and be merry
Sister Act - anything goes
Sparkles - autumn colors
Tok Bobok - vintage
As You Like It - fave twine or ribbon (I use this SU! linen thread a LOT! it's natural shade goes with anything - masculine, vintage, whimsical - just whatever I want to use. and it's ideal for all button sizes. it's not really thread, but twine, just not as heavy as what you usually find.)
Paper Crafting Journey - distressed/vintage
Shelly's - oh scrap (all 3 banners are made with scrap pieces)
Ruby's Rainbow - vintage
Creative Craft - tic tac toe: twine, ivory, distress
