A New Challenge!!!!! #TGIFC02 this was totally LAST MINUTE! I came across this blog the other day & thought about entering their challenge this week...then I got busy & never made it back to work on a project. Tonight I sat down & thought I would whip something up, so I pulled up the site to double check the requirements...only to find out that submission ends TONIGHT! Oh no! I hadn't even started yet!

Could I get something done?!? Would it be worth posting if I threw it together too quickly?!? Was I setting myself up for disappointment?!? No, no & NO!!!
Of course I could do this! I work well under pressure & I LOVE a CHALLENGE!
Here is the sketch:
With it being the last day to enter, there were 45 entries ahead of mine...all of them gorgeous!
(Remind me again how I was going to make something original after looking at all this great inspiration?!?)
So...I did what I do best! I took the sketch, flipped it around & got to work!
Here is what I created:

I stamped the cup on Canvas Creations paper with Early Espresso ink.
& tied a knot after using a tag topped punch to make the decorative edge & hole.  
 I LOVE the way this turned out!
This coffee cup from Perfect Blend (Item #131392) is retiring. I'm sad to see it go! (If you would like to have it in your collection, be sure to order it before May 26th! You can order HERE & please use Hostess Code BVWMRZKC if you do!)
If you need a list of additional supplies I used, please let me know. I will try to update this post with a complete list as soon as I can.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy this card & come back to visit again soon!
P.S. It's taken me longer to get the photos uploaded into this post than it did to create the card, take the photos AND put the watermark on


  1. So glad you still decided to enter despite the time crunch. I love how you turned the sketch on it's side! Thanks for joining us at TGIF!

  2. This is such a fun card! I love the colour combo and the fun textures! The glittery heart is a nice touch. Found you via Friends with Flair. :)
