Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Bloghop

It's time!! The spring coffee lovers bloghop is here!
These hops are so much fun- cool to see all the inspiration! I know it's a ton of work, so a huge thanks to ~amy~ and crew!

I'm hoping to get more done, but my daughter's birthday is this week, we've been helping my parents move, and we are getting ready to move too.... I am so tired, coffee isn't even enough these days!!

I can't even tell you how lucky I felt to have won the Lil' Inkers Latte Love stamps & dies during the last hop- I remember seeing them & thinking they were perfect!! They are a super sponsor, so be sure to check them out!

I think the paper is authentique. The mug is stamped on bristol paper & colored with zigs. The sentiment is heat embossed, a bit of burlap string & some acrylic paint spatters finish it off.
I know I'm late to the party- and I also know I've got no delusions of catching up to Erin's number of entries- but hopefully I will be back!
Happy Hopping!

The Heart Desires Mid-challenge #10

 I'm back with some mid-challenge inspiration for you for the beautiful THD Challenge #10!
Take a look: 

So many beautiful choices to inspire you!
Here's what I came up with:

I've die cut a piece of vellum with Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched rectangle dies, then heat embossed the Neat & Tangled Hope Anchors stamp in gold. A few sequins from the Neat & Tangled Peacock mix add some interest. If you haven't seen this mix- it is YUMMY! So many fabulous colors and each color in several sizes!!

The vellum panel is machine stitched to the hexagon patterned paper (old basicgrey).
Still LOTS of time to play along- looking forward to seeing how you're inspired!

MIM #276: Kraft & Colored Pencil

Melissa shared a lovely MIM this week- she is always so inspiring!
I pulled out some older goodies & my prisma pencils & this is what I came up with:

Botanical blocks, BB: text & Through the Trees are the stamps used here. I also lightly embossed the card base with the guidelines embossing plate. PP from my stash & MS border punch.
Sorry for the poor pic- quite late here & I didn't pull out the lightbox!
Happy March & thanks for stopping by!

The Heart Desires Challenge #10

It's time for a new challenge at The Heart Desires!! It's been so fun to see how everyone has been inspired by the challenges so far- hope you can play along with us again for Challenge #10!
Here is the inspiration:

Isn't it amazing? 
Here's my take:

I know everyone is shocked that I used the Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Nested Rectangle Dies, as well as the Gina Marie Scalloped Circle Frames Dies
I thought the Concord & 9th Map Love was the perfect set for this challenge! I've used Delicata golden glitz ink and heat embossed it gold on vellum paper. I stamped the earth image on the card base below. A few sequins finish it off!
You've got all month to join us!
