Coffee Date

Tuesday, July 30, 2019


Hi, Coffee Loving fans!  I'm really excited about our new feature where each of the DT invite one of their friends for a crafting 'Coffee Date'!

I'm thrilled to have my good friend Mary Reiner join me today! Mary and I have known each other for a long time (a really long time) and over the last several years have shared our love for cardmaking!  Here's a little bit about Mary...

 
Hi! My name is Mary Reiner and I live in Columbus, Ohio. I’m married and have two children in their twenties.  By day, I am a test coordinator for a local school district.   Paper crafting has been part of my life for over 25 years. I started making scrapbooks when my children were younger; but eventually card making took over. I’ve been making cards for about 10 years. After a stressful day, I look forward to my crafting time. Just give me some chocolate and some pretty paper and I’m good! Kathy and I met about 25 years ago when we both worked for Limited Too. She made awesome projects back then as well! We reconnected a few years ago at a paper crafting garage sale and now we get to see each other pretty often.  I’m so happy she asked me to be her “coffee date.” 

Our cards were inspired by a sketch and color combo:


  Here's Mary's card (it's it beautiful?!)

  4. The stamps are so cute. I love coffee themed cards! Just about everyone loves coffee, so the cards can be changed to fit many occasions (just change the sentiment). Thanks for showing us.
