Just a note ...

Not a very productive craft day, but I'm happy to say that all has been resolved between my son and I.  While he was here I made a couple more cards that Nick & his fiance Lauren can use. 


I just got this lovely new Espresso Scene stamp from DeNami, and new I wanted to use it for the Crazy 4 Challenge #74 called HEARTS.  I love those little hearts in the mugs.  The same sentiment used above is what you would normally find curved under the large mug.  When inking the stamp I made sure not to ink that portion of the stamp.  Luckily I had the same sentiment as a stand alone. 

I took the HEARTS theme and mixed in the Repeat Impressions F16 CASE Card Challenge.  I really like the CASE card that Ayana provided us to work with this week.

CASE F16
Product used ...
 - Stamps:  DeNami Espresso Scene and Sentiment
 - Paper:  Bazzill Lagoon, Sienna, and I'm going to call mustard color

Here’s to hoping that my take on the CASE card and HEARTS challenges provide you with some inspiration to go forth and create!

You did a FANTASTIC job of CASING Ayana's card for this challenge, Ruza!! LOVE your color choices, those yummy mugs of tea (I imagine them to be tea because I don't like coffee---HA!) and the twine!!!
