Quickies, That Really Weren't Quickies...

Okay, so this first one was way quicker than the next one I'll show you, BUT they were both supposed to be faster cards than they were. I really was only supposed to spend 20 minutes in my craft room. That turned into an hour! The Limited Supply Challenge over at SCS on Friday was called Orange Roasters-you were supposed to create a card with a coffee related image and use any shade of orange you desired. I pulled out my Washington Apple dsp and my Pun Fun set and this is what came of that. I actually quite like this card. I think my favorite part of it is the awesome button accent. Man, I love those new buttons in the Button Bouquet!! I paper pieced the cuppa joe with some pumpkin prints dsp. This second card, well, let's just say it had a life of it's own. I was reading my friend Becky's blog and saw the awesome card she did for the Limelight sketch challenge. I was so focused on the keep it simple part, that I wasn't able to. For some reason I kept adding layers and then I couldn't make the full sketch work for me. Literally, I think I re-did this card 4 times and I don't re-do cards often. I do like the end result, but I felt like it strayed from the sketch, oh, which is here BTW- The sketch. Again, I used the Washington Apple dsp (this is my second favorite print in the pack!) and the Pumpkin prints dsp. Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back with a scrapbook page tomorrow. Hugs,


  1. They are both wonderful even if they didn't end up as planned, lol!

  2. LOVE the button on the coffee cup!! I also love the flower in the second one- it was worth the extra time these are cute!

  3. These are both awesome! I never use these colors and should give it a try, they are so warm and sweet-looking!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
