Be Inspired :)


Hi friends!




"Orange" you glad it's the weekend?  I am! *smile!* 
 I'm so inspired this new year and really love hanging out in my craftin' Cabana ~ just being in there brings me such joy and peace :)

One of the fun challenges I spied was this one The Alley Way Stamps 
and couldn't wait to create a card. The picture is splendid ~ isn't it cute!




I printed the steamin' hot coffee digi from the freebie of the month 
and pulled from the colors of the photo inspiration #19.
After coloring my image and layering it onto my card, I had a inkling (hee hee!  No pun intended!) to paper-piece it instead and I'm so glad I did!
Somehow it makes the card a little more charming :)
I added the matching sentiment to the inside of the card.
I love the vivid, contrasting colors of the picture and absolutely adore non-traditional type cards ... wouldn't this make a FUN Valentine's card!

And here's my card:




And the inside :)



 And that's it from me today!  Lots still to finish before Monday
gets here :)  Hope today is a crafty one for you!

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  1. I'm going to get a cup of coffee... but first I thought I'd tell you how nice your card looks. I love that you usually always have buttons on your cards. I need to do that because otherwise they pile up! lol Hope you have a productive Sunday.

    Hugs,
