Friendship Cards, Just Because Cards

Your Friendship Is A Blessing


Hi there, I hope you’re having a great day!

After reaching my 365-cards-in-365-days goal, I took a couple of days off and I confess that I felt a little lost.  When I came back to my craft desk yesterday, I felt sooo happy.  I really have come to love this hobby and to rely on it as a sort of therapy and a wonderful way to connect with crafty folks like you!

Just Because Cards, Winter Cards

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!


Hi there, I hope you’re having a good week!

This card is an homage to my days skiing with my dad.  He taught me to ski when I was four and until I went off to college, we skied together each winter.  For four or those winters we lived at the base of Sandia Peak, in Albuquerque, NM, and I made this little scene based on the many many weekends we spent on the slopes there.

More Coffee, Please.


Hi there and happy Monday!

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a Monday coffee card, but I’ve got a long week ahead so I thought I’d start it off with this sweet bunny from Honey Bee Stamps.  The bunny comes from the Blah Humbunny stamp set, the mug from the Blah Bunny stamp set, and the sentiment from the Blah Blah Blah stamp set.  The background is My Favorite Things’ Whimsical  Waves background stamp.

First I Drink The Coffee, Then I Do The Things


Hello!  I hope your week is getting off to a great start!

I just love this bunny from Honey Bee Stamps’ Blah Humbunny stamp set.  Today I’ve paired it with the Coffee by One Little Bird stamp set from Studio Calico to create this card that perfectly captures how I usually feel on Monday mornings.

I started by stamping the bunny and coffee cup onto Neenah Solar White #80 Classic Crest cardstock using Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink.  I did some basic coloring using E31 and E35 for the bunny’s fur, E30 for the bunny’s foot pads and inner ears, and E50, E53, B32, and B34 for the coffee cup.  I filled in the bunny’s eyes with a black Saruka Glaze pen and then added little white dots with a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  Then I cut out the images using a Brother ScanNCut2 and set them aside.

For the card front I trimmed another piece of Neenah Solar White to 4″ x 5.25″ and stamped the sentiment in Versafine Black Onyx ink.  I adhered the bunny and then popped up the coffee cup using foam tape.  Finally, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base to finish up today’s card.

Thanks for swinging by!
