Just For You, Cherish Coffee in the Fall!

Be sure to scroll down, 4 of 365 Card Challenges posted here!
The first card is for Day 186 - Ad Inspired. Never used a black card base and thought I would give it a try. Embossed in white Cherish and Flourish from SU! Baroque Motifs stamp set. Added red flower and red bling.


Next card is for Thursday, September 3, 2009 Day 187 - Label It. I think this is my favorite card this week, it had all my attention, hmmm, could it have been the smell of that fresh pineapple coffee from Dole Plantation in Hawaii? Yes, it could! I've saved the bag for quite some time just because I thought I could use it to decorate the kitchen and this card would be cute to frame. Uh-oh, more work for DH! Used stamps my daughter gave me, not sure of the name, and the cup is from Like it a Latta. The sentiment is computer generated.

The 3rd entry is for Day 188 - Touchy, Feely Friday. My trip to Archivers this week netted me a pink felt flower. Being the only felt embellishment I have I decided to use it. But the Pepto Bismol pink was hard to match. Again DD came to the rescue and suggested brown. So I used the new in-color Soft Suede. The sentiment is SU! Oval All. I placed a darker shade of pink behind the felt flower to help highlight it and keep it from looking to busy.

The last card is for Day 189 - Charming. To add a charm to the card. I really don't have many charms so I used this one, it is off a jacket zipper! Thought it would work with a fall theme so this is what I came up with. Must admit, it's not one of my favorite cards. I believe I should go back to the coffee label card and get my MOJO back!!!


That's all for today, really need to quit using card making as work avoidance! Have a great and safe long holiday week-end...
