ADOPT card from The Cutting Cafe

Be sure to visit the Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and the 21st of every month for our design teams inspirational post in which by leaving a comment you will be entered into a drawing to win 3 free sets of your choice from the online store.  

Now on to this week’s inspiration!

This week we got to choose anything from the shop.  So of course I went for pet related.   I chose the ADOPT word card file.  We adopted our fur baby Toby when he was 3 months old and he will be 8 in June.  I work from home and anytime I run an errand, bank etc, where I can stay in the car I let him ride with.   I honestly can not imaging us not having him.    

Grab your file here.

Below is my card, I loved using the dog themed buttons and ribbon to embellish the card.




And of course can not have a ADOPT post without sharing Toby too.  





See you soon!

Coffee!!


Must have COFFEE!!!

I am the kind of person that has coffee in my hand the moment I get up in the morning and drink coffee until I go to bed.

Coffee is a must have for me so when I saw this set I had to have it.   Coffee Time Set has so many great images and sentiments.  It can can be found herehttp://www.rubbernecker.com/product-p/458.htm





I embossed the images with white embossing powder and used my Zig Clean Color real brush markers to color the coffee cups.
