January news!

 Hello sweet friends!

It's almost 2023 ~ can you believe it!

January is right. around. the. corner!

Not only will we have a brand new year,

but a wonderful start to new endeavors ...

like one that graciously landed my way

and now - I can spill the coffee beans!

I fell absolutely head over heels with a company called

 A Colorful Life Designs

when their Cloud Edger stencil literally went viral!

I've made several cards with it and it still makes me swoon!

Which is what I did when they reached out and asked if I would

like to guest design for the month of January.

It was an unequivocal yes!

M20019 ~ Coffee stains

was part of my amazingly generous budget to choose

stencils to work on for the month of January.

Of course, I had to make sure at least one of them was coffee!

It's my blood type :)

And I ADORE this one!

I give you the option of a coffee cup stain, splatter or both!

I added this cute coffee kitty from Your Next Stamp

to be part of the kitty coffee crew.

Excited for the new year?

you bet!

stay tuned for what tomorrow to see more :)

Thanks for stopping by!
