I hope everyone is having a super wonderful lovely weekend so far. (I know it just started, but I hope yours started off right :)!) I know at Fresh Brewed Designs, we are!! I have had my morning java and am ready to take on the day! My husband is off work and we are going to spend time together and with the kids.
On the other hand, Our lovely latte lady rubber stamp has been so very lonely. She keeps telling me she loves all the places she has been and has loved visiting all of the coffee shops, but it gets tiring going by herself all the time. I introduced her to who we lovingly call Hot Cuppa Joe and she couldn't be happier! :D hehehe
Well, maybe I have had TOO much coffee today .... but I hope you are smiling and putting up with me and my craziness. All of this leads up to a NEW DIGITAL STAMP RELEASE!!! I had some free time on my hands this week sitting with a not so well little man, so I took advantage of my being lazy and created this to share with all of you Fresh Brewed Designs fans :)
Here he is.....
Welcome to the family:
He is standing with our lovely latte lady, I'll Take Mine to Go rubber stamp.
All of the papers are from my scrap pile (GO ME!!!) I used my cricut Accent Essentials cartridge to cut out the shapes behind them. I used the fantastic sketch at Papertake Weekly for this card. I also did something I did not want to do but am glad I did :D Have you ever done something JUST for a challenge? Stamp Man is asking for stitching. I poked all the holes and hand stitched up the sides. Normally it would be calming and a stress relief for me, but I was so busy ... thank you Stamp Man for getting me to sit down and take a break :D. The colors I chose for this card were inspired by the challenge at Just Add Ink and the bling comes from the Totally Papercrafts challenge.
Look at all of those yummy layers and the shimmer :) Yes I had too much fun making this card :D I think this may be the thickest card I have made.
At least in the top 5~ :)
