Spring/Summer 2018 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Entry #2

Its a very dismal, cold day here this morning and I have the day off. Phoebe has the day off today (Mid Term Break for College) so she stayed the night at Ella's and they are coming home in around an hour. I did have some gardening to do today so might have to squeeze in a few hours over the weekend.... However it means I can make some more coffee cards and catch up on housework...yay!!

I have another entry for the Spring/Summer 2018 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop  featuring another 'Leading Lady' from Ellen Hutson:

I don't think I ever look this nice when I'm crafting, I'm usually in my pyjama's or old gardening clothes, so thank goodness I don't do any video's! I'd have to get a stylist and make-up artist!!!!

I stamped the Ellen Hutson 'Crafty Leading Lady' on white CS, coloured her with pencils in bright, Summery colours and then die-cut using the matching die. I also stamped a flower from Neat and Tangled 'Bloom', pencil coloured and fussy cut to add to her hair. 

For the background I stamped the coffee cup from Ellen Hutson 'Hot Mess Leading Lady' all over the card front and coloured with my pencils. I die-cut a circle of black CS with a die from Couture Creations and heat embossed the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 'Hot Coffee' in white before adhering to the card. I popped the Lady up on foam tape and added some Neat and Tangled sequins.

I'm also going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.

I better go and get myself organised before the girls get here (I'm still in my pyjama's and its 9am!!). Hopefully I'll be back here later on today with one or two more 'coffee' cards...wish me luck!!

Take care
