Coffee Anyone?

This is a little gift basket that I made for one of my BFFs. She, like I, is a lover of coffee, and especially coffee with a hearty dose of THE WORLD'S BEST CREAMER EVER, Chocolate Caramel.

So, I'm going to make this quick, as I have NO INTERNET service at home, and I'm stuck in my husband's office trying to get my posts done! LOL What dedication, right! ;) So, here's the break down of the goods...

This is the MFT set, Coffee, Tea?. (It's SO my current MFT fave!) I used it on this 4 1/4 card. I love this sentiment, and it SO totally fits, 'cause since we're living with our BFFs, they've been getting spoiled with homemade gifts from yours truely. Hey, I gotta give 'em to someone, right!? :)

These are a set of jammie pants and below is the thermos.

Okedoke, gotta jet! Hope you enjoyed the little giftie basket. I had fun making it! :) Till later...

Better Latte than Never!

I think that this sentiment should be on every birthday card that I make! LOL Rarely do I get a card out on time... Pretty sad for a cardmaker! :)

I had a LOT of fun with this set, Coffee, Tea?, from MFT this weekend. On Sunday, I sat down and made, I think, 7 projects with it! That NEVER happens for me!

I used some new PTI goodies, as you can see in the PP, the CS, and the embellies. I LOVE orange, and when these Orange Zeal buttons arrived to me, I asked my friend if it's wrong that buttons can make one so happy. She quickly replied "yes." What does she know?

I'll skip most of the bla, bla, bla 'cause I'm low on time, and it's pretty self-explanatory.

...and here's the close-up of the image.

Now, I'm off and running. Have a good one! Till later...

Special Part of my Life

This is a card that I made with PTI's anniversary set, Everyday Classics. The PP is from American Crafts. Ribbon and button is from PTI. I used some white gel pen on the bird's wing.

Sorry for all of the short-but-sweet posts! I've been so busy lately, I've just got to squeeze these posts in when I can! LOL Hoping for some down time soon! Maybe this weekend!?

Till later...

Let's Make Some Mischief

This is another card that I made with one of the MFT new releases for this month. She's quite naughty, isn't she!? If you're looking for an "adult" Halloween set, then this is the one for you! Click HERE to see the whole set.

I used my Nesties, Copics, a MFT button, and a snippet of some Michael's ribbon. The circles in the background are from MFT's Dog Walking set. The red ribbon is from PTI.

And now I'm off running! Gotta throw the kids in the car and head for school! Have a good one!

Too Cute to Spook

This is another quick post, as my little one needs to get in bed, but I wanted to show you this little diddy. I used MFT's new set, Too Cute to Spook, for this. I sponged the main image panel with PTI's Summer Sun and Lemon Tart. Ribbon is PTI, too. Border punch is from Fiscars and the button is from Basic Grey.

Now I'm off! Have a great night!

...And Now She's Not.

This is a little MFT jar that I altered for this cutie Halloween gift. I made this several weeks ago, but only just now got a chance to edit the pictures! The weekdays are so busy now, and add on the fact that I had a bad cold, and photo editing is an impossibility!

Anywho, I used MFT's new Ghoulish Label Set. I'll just give you the highlights, because I need to get off to bed. :) There is Flower Soft on the topper, as the spider body. The button is from Basic Grey. Ribbon is SU!.

I added some Crystal Effects on the slime to make it dimensional. Don't you love that little eyeball!? So a creepy sort of way! LOL And what better to put in the box than gummy worms!?
And now I'm off! My bed is calling my name!

With Sympathy

I had one more card that was already edited, and here it is! I used the With Sympathy set, from PTI and Taylor's sketch (76), found HERE. I'm going to skip most of the bla, bla, bla, but here is another view...

The white sentiment layer is Shimmer paper, so that's why it's not photographing well. The other white is the linen vellum that PTI carries. Butterfly is a MSL punch.
Now I'm off to go swimming with the family at my MIL's hotel! Hope you're having a great weekend. Till later...

By My Side

This is a card that I made for one of Beate's wonderful sketches. I love the horizontal little pieces that she designed. You can find her sketch HERE.

I used PTI's newish On the Couch and On the Couch Additions for this. I also used my new PTI Text Style set for the vertical words. I inked the edges with PTI's Tea Dye Duo. I paper pieced the couch with BG's Eva 6x6 pad. I LOVE that one!!

WOW, have I been mega busy since school has started or WHAT!? I have loads of things that I can show you, but I haven't had a chance to edit the pix. My MIL and FIL are in town this weekend, but hopefully I'll be able to get some of that done, since it's Labor Day weekend. I have several MFT samples to show with the newly released sets!

Now I'm off! Hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend!

September Blog Hop!

Welcome to this month's Blog Hop! If you didn't catch this from the beginning, then you'll want to click HERE to make sure that you didn't miss anything. If you're visiting for the first time, then I'm glad you're here! :)

This is my current favorite WTG set, and it will be available tomorrow night. It's called Coffee? Tea?. I love that it is a much bigger scale than the retired (much loved) coffee set. I used some pretty AC paper with it and a little Michael's bridal flower that I colored with Copics. I also added a MFT button and a SU! punch. I did some paper piercing AND piecing on this. A Bella Bon Bon is in the flower center.

And speaking of coffee, MFT is now (as of this release) going to be carrying a gorgeous ribbon set in the colors of Coffee and Cream! I can't wait to get my hands on it! You KNOW I love my ribbon! ;) You'll be able to find it on the website on THIS PAGE.

And now to continue on your Hop, click HERE for Susie's blog, displaying nothing but fabulousness. Tell her "hi" for me! ;)

Till later!
