Purple, Orange, and Blue?

That was the color scheme for the 365 card challenge today... hummm.... *scratches head*. The joke was going around about Pan's "special" coffee.... so I decided I really needed some of that stuff!!!! Oh Pam????? Shall we coffee??? Hahahaha that was my inspiration here! This is the first cup of coffee I've had in 2 whole, entire weeks!!!! yeay me for kicking the habit! But I just HAD TO HAVE A CUP to get through this challenge..... Look, it's helped! hahahah I used super dark purple paper for the background, and went with neon orange for the middle layer, finished that off with some distressed looking light blue and, voila! I had my colors, now for the hard part. My Pal image swapped me a whole bunch of these "Love you Latte" coffee cups, so I went with that, used my son's Crayola pip squeaks to add a bit of color, and used my Lovely Lilac stampin spot from SU to distress the edges of the white card stock. I've had these alphabet stickers since the dawn of time, so I figured why not actually use them for once? The blue sentiment on top actually said, "Shall we dance?" But I wasn't into dancing this morning, so I cut off the dance part and there we have it. I added a purple bow ('cause what's a card without a bow?) and sat back to see if I needed anything else...... I guess not.....

OK, now I'm off to make some breakfast..... I'm thinking french toast.... anyone with me?!?!?! See y'all tomorrow!!!

Growing in Unity Day 1

Hello there Unity Crafters!!!!! Today marks my very first day in the Growing in Unity event.  Today I'm featuring a card that I made using the set {Jar Full of} Sweetness.  Those of you who know me, know that I'm completely addicted to apothecary jars and have lots of them filled with all sorts of candies on my countertop.  I adore them and i'll never stop collecting them.  So, when I saw this set, I knew I HAD TO HAVE it straight away!
I'm very new to making shaker cards but I thought it would be perfect to have the little sequins I purchased from Firefly Crafts inside the jars to make it look like little candies in there!

I also used a few of the flowers I purchased from Firefly Crafts as well, they are made by Wild Orchid and they are absolutely perfect!

I hope you enjoyed this card today and it inspired you to make something crafty! Surf the Unity site and find a cute stamp and get with it! he he he! See you all tomorrow!
Have a Crafty Day!

Getting Nerdy!

Good morning crafty people!
Today I've made a card using a stamp I purchased from Quick Creations! Seriously LOVE that store, I could spend so much money there!  It's all online so I don't even have to put on real pants (read: not leggings) to shop, and my coffee stays hot! He he he!
