Life Happens

When I saw the set for the first time, I knew I had to have the Coffee Helps Stamp Set.  It's just so cute, and perfect for making simple cards.  

Super simple card, perfect for a sweet note and a little gift card to the recipients favorite coffee shop.  Created with Fun Stampers Journey Coffee Helps Stamp Set.

Today's card really fits the simple idea.  I stamped my images and sentiment in Cocoa Powder Ink, and then colored in the coffee  cup with my Color Burst pencils.  A little flick of Dark Roast Silk, and a couple accent strips of paper, and the card was finished.  Easy-peasy!

I got my projects for Inking Idaho on the Road finished up, and I photographed them yesterday.  I'm so excited to share with you what I made!  I always try to make one "showpiece" project, and that will coming at you on Monday - but you *may* get a sneak peek this weekend over on my Facebook page...perhaps a little live video at some point? 

Thanks for stopping by!

Breakfast in a Cup

I absolutely adore simple and cute gift ideas, and this little "Breakfast in a Cup" idea - from FSJ Creative Director, Kim Kesti, and Brittany Young, The Certified Celebrator - certainly fits that category.

I wanted to say thank you to those that have sent me emails, and sweet messages about my eventful week (I'd been sharing bits of the adventure on my Instagram stories, and it was mentioned in this week's Assembled video, that Becky had to do solo)!  I had to go the emergency room Sunday night due to an issue that caused my heart to spend all day Sunday beating way too fast.  It took a couple of days in the hospital to get my meds on track to regulate my heart rate.  And it will likely be a few months of follow up to see what we will be doing long term for this issue.  I've had heart issues since birth, but this was a new quirk that took me by surprise.  I'm very hopeful that we are on the right track for treating this issue.  I so appreciate the concern, and caring that has been expressed.  
Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,
