Life Happens

Saturday, March 18, 2017

Welcome back to my Saturday Coffee Café on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog!  Hope you have a cup of delish brew and are having a relaxing Saturday.

 Not all Saturdays are relaxing, I know.  If you’re not running around for athletic games and errands, there’s housework or the never-ending laundry to do!  I try to get as much done as I can on Friday night.  My co-workers think I’m nuts (or at least don’t have a life) because I usually get grocery shopping done after work on Friday.  That leaves Saturday to stay in “jammies” all day, but sometimes life happens and my weekly plans get changed.  It’s ok, though…there’s a Starbucks in either direction of where errands may take me!


For my card, I chose this TimHoltz Bigz die, Tea Time, which I found on clearance at JoAnn Fabrics recently.  Using the new Distress Oxide ink pads, I used the smooshing technique to 'color' the cups.  The side was created with Tim Holtz Mix Media Thinlit Die.  The sentiment is from Verve’s set Coffee Helps.

P.S. - Be sure to Save The Date:
