 Our Daily Bread Designs August release is jam-packed with sports-themed stamps and dies to create the perfect projects for those sports lovers in your life!   I'm excited to continue Guest Designing at ODBD this month and to share some more peeks at the newest goodies!

 It was really fun creating this baseball-themed card.  All the hard work to cut out the shaped card was done easy using the Center Step card (lovin' these pre-cut shaped cards!!)

Wild Birthday


 My birthday month celebration continues!  Although I sadly must admit, "wild" birthday celebrations are long gone :)  So I'm settling for gettin' wild creating with these sweet little guys!

 For my card, I stated with Reverse Confetti floral pattern paper from the Under the Umbrella pad.  Then I cut Cloud White and Iced Aqua cardstock using Hello & Thanks Label Confetti Cuts. My 'wild' little buddies and sentiment are from Lift Me Up set and Confetti Cuts. To finish, I added this confetti banner cut from Flamingo cardstock using the Circle Garland Confetti Cuts.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:










 

 


 


Saturday Coffee Cafe - Keep Calm



Welcome to the Saturday Coffee Cafe featured on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog -- so glad to see you!


 

 The definition of "zen" is "having or showing qualities such as meditative calmness and an attitude of acceptance".  That certainly explains my state of mind when I've had my coffee!

This wonderful cup image is one of three stamps offered by STAMPlorations - so much fun to color!  The coffee word die is also from STAMPlorations and the background die is a retired one from My Favorite Things.

Thanks to these challenges for letting me share!



So keep calm and have a cup of coffee!  Until next time...

Wow - where did the summer go?  It's mid-August, but I'm not ready to say 'goodbye' to summer just yet!  I love to see nature in full bloom during this season and I'm so glad there's still time to enjoy it all :)  And speaking of more time...you still have plenty of time to play in Reverse Confetti's August Sketch For You To Try challenge!

Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though! You may enter as many times as you wish.
