Fall Cup to Go

Last night I had to sit down and make a card for the Mod Squad Challenge which is to make Fall  Beverage cards. I, of course, went to a coffee themed one.

I had this unused stamp set from Unity Stamp Company called Fall to Go which worked in perfectly for the challenge theme. I stamped it on ivory card stock and then colored it with Copics. This panel was die cut with an Unbranded die. I also added some ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbons in the right top and bottom corners. And, then this panel was placed onto a black layer before adding it to the ivory card base. And I really like that wonderful sentiment that came with the set too!

Also on a more personal note I am sharing the card I made for my hubby for our 49th wedding anniversary which is today. It is not an elaborate design but it did take me a while to do it. And again for this card I used the Picket Fence Studios stencils and the Life Changing Blending Brushes to make the background. The sentiment was stamped onto that design and the I popped up the two cacti images. All the stamps and dies for this card are from the Gina K. Designs.Stuck On You bundle.

I don't think we will be doing anything special as both of  us have bad colds at the moment and it is probably best we not go out in public and spread it around. If we do get anything it will be most likely a carry out meal. We both are sneezing, coughing, blowing our nose and having weeping eyes together in unison. And all that going on is not like a pleasant sounding orchestral performance. I don't think any restaurant would like us being there. LOL We are gradually getting better but it is something that takes time to get over  and I don't take any cold meds as sometimes I think that prolongs the bug even more. At least we don't have any fever so that is good.

Well, I  best get on with my day here. I wish all of you a most wonderful weekend. I think I am going to take a break from card making and maybe see if there are some good movies to watch. I also have some reading that needs to be done as well so there are things to keep me occupied. Oh, and yes, housework is always there but who likes to do that? Not me, that is for sure! LOL

Thanks for the visit and lovely comments.

God bless,

Gosh, I love both of these cards! The coffee cup is so cute, and nice to be able to use the ribbon on an easy to mail card. Your anniversary card really wows me! Fabulous stenciled background in beautiful colors, fun sentiment and images. Happy anniversary! I hope you both feel more like celebrating soon.

I love that fall coffee cup. The circles are so pretty overlapped like that. Beautiful colors on them and a cute verse. Happy anniversary. I hope your colds are about done now and you are getting back 100%. This is the time of year for them.

Splendid work on the punkin coffee cup. That is adorable. Also loved those sponged bright circles on the anniversary card. Happy Happy on that by the way. Quite a milestone to be proud of - but so sorry both of you are down with colds. That's not fun...but after all these anniversaries, you can always postpone any special celebrations for when you both feel up to it. Take out gets my vote, as I doubt you feel like making something to eat!!! Take care, and hope you are both on the mend real soon. (and speaking as somebody who has respiratory problems, I applaud your keeping your colds at home and not exposing the public. Wish more people were so considerate! Hugs) TFS
