I'm Blue Without You ~

We had a bit more rain here yesterday and of course some flash flooding to go with it.  Not nearly as much as last week, but everyone was sure on guard and a bit nervous about it too.  Umbrellas and raindrops are certainly on my mind, can you tell? :)

Happy Friday-Eve!

Fill 'er Up Friday ~

I love coffee, cake and new blog challenges too!

Today's card is for two challenges; the sketch is from Mojo Monday, but the inspiration comes from this photo at a new challenge that just started at - If You Give a Crafter a Cookie.  Fresh Brewed Designs is the sponsor, so of course I had to use my favorite FBD digital stamp.

Fill up your coffee cup and make it a great day!

Flirty Flamingo ~

 
Hi there!  No I haven't floated away in all of the rain here in Phoenix!  Yikes, what a crazy day it was yesterday.  If you watch the news I'm sure you saw the videos of cars floating down our highways.  Driving a Beetle was not in my favor, but all is well again for me.  I know others are still dealing with a bit of a mess and my heart goes out to them.  Please send some positive thoughts their way.

I figured a bird with a bit of water of some sort would be fitting considering, and Pink Petticoat has a new set so of course ya knew I had to get it!  Have an awesome day!

Blue Painter's Tape ~

I think chocolate cake with pink frosting would fix anything, how about you?  It's hard to see in this photo, but I learned a new technique over the weekend with the blue painter's tape.  I did it behind the stamped cake, but I should have used a bit darker ink. Basically you just cut a strip of tape off and use it as the stamp into your ink pad, put the tape on your cardstock, tear it off, and viola you've got an instant, and perfectly matched to your cardstock, background.  Who knew it would bring me such joy!

Here is the one that we made at the CTMH party I went to on Saturday, which shows it a whole lot better:
Such a happy and pretty card ~ So fun!

Celebratory Coffee ~

I will have to admit that my circles are much bigger than the sketch circles. You just never know where a sketch is going to take you, now do you?!

A few of my crafty gals and I recently had a flower swap, and I'm using one of them here that I received.  I love the color of course, but especially that it's from a recycled phone book!
