A Couple Cuppas and Fabulous Freebies!

I am still just LOVIN' Lindsay's Coffee Talk stamp set and these papers from bo bunny! I made two cards this week - one for a dear cousin who just had shoulder surgery, and one for a favorite friend who shares my love of coffee! I used this week's Inspirational Card Sketch #36 for my cards. Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is sponsoring this week, so be sure to join the challenge and get a chance to win some fabulous free stamps! Speaking of free, hop on over to Lindsay's blog to see what she has for freebies today, and be sure to check out her special this week - 50% of the Babies and Bows stamp set in celebration of the birth of her nephew, Mason. She has also added some cute BINGO Cards to this set. (Scroll back through her blog to see the bingo cards and super cute pics of Mason. He's a doll!)
My cards were quite simple this week. I printed the images, cut them out with my coluzzle oval template and colored them with my bic mark its. I used a cuttlebug die for the "hello friend" sentiment. I blended antique linen distress ink on one card to give it an aged look, and used picket fence distress stickles to give the second card just a touch of bling. The card bases are made with bazill cardstock. Lindsay has posted links to everyone's blogs so you will see the most current, up-to-date creations by her fabulous design team members. Just go to Thefrugalcrafter's Weblog to check out what's new this week! Until next time, happy stamping!
