I Love You Duck and Thanks a Latte!

I made this card some time ago but just realized that I had never posted it on my blog. It was created using the My Cuppa Joe stamp set by Asela Hopkins, sold at GinaK Designs. Very simple concept on the card. I used copic markers for the coffee mug and craft snow for the froth. It was fun playing with snow with a toothpick to keep in in the lines where I wanted it :).
The scalloped punch is Stampin Up and the You're Cool Beans circle stamp is in the My Cuppa Joe set as well. There are lot of cool coffee related cups, coffee bean bag, sentiments for lots of different occassions.

Oh, by the way, GinaK Designs is having a Release Party on Thursday at SCS forum. Sneak Peaks start tomorrow

Checkout this little Duck with Flowers,
This little Duck with Flower is from Dog Gone Stamps and is just so sweet and innocent. It was colored with copic markers and cut out the image square at an angle.

I stitched along the edges of the main image and also made a decorative outline border basically for added interest without adding any other embellishments, keeping it a more masculine feel.

Have you noticed that I have been on kind of a masculine card kick for the past couple of weeks. Oh well.

The card is really self explanatory, Always nice to have a few Just because I Love you cards laying around.

I know that I have not been blogging at my usual pace but I have a couple of really big projects going that are secret for a little while longer and with working full time, which pays for this addiction, I mean hobby, there just aren't always enough hours in the day. Hang in with me and I will let you know about my secret projects just as soon as I can.

See you all tomorrow,
