The Card Concept Guest: Given enough coffee...

This is post 2 of 2 for me today...click HERE for my Neat & Tangled post.



Super Excited to let you know that I'm the Guestie over at



Um, how perfect is the theme for me?!

Love it!

Here's how I was inspired:

paper:  echo park/for the record2 stamps:  stampin' Up perfect blend, verve better with you ink:  memento tuxedo, distress ink pumice stone  other:  recollections journal card, cork,  confetti cuts double edge scallop border

What do you think?

clean & layered


Yup, it's a new coffee set for me!  Kimberly RAK'd me the Stampin' Up Perfect Blend set.  Thanks Kimberly!!!  It's something that I've had my eye on for a very long time.  I teamed it up with my Verve Better With You set.

I was inspired by the colors!

I used Lesley's



I can't wait to see how you're inspired!
