Lookin Good Cookin!

If we have to cook,we need to look cool!.So this little item of fashion came from ,
The Cutting Cafe .This has been a week of crafting in the scrap box. So I really do not know about any of the papers,or ribbon.I need to use my new paper, so I can tell you the company name.( I want to be a good blogger). I really needed to clean out that darn scrap box. Maybe I should just give it all away.The teacher in me says NO, you might need it someday! ! Do I listen to the good angel on my left shoulder, or do I listen to the bad angel and keep it all.Might need it for a rainy day!

One More Cup Please!

Just one more card with a coffee theme. Paper was scrap that I had from an old project. Stamp was a Verve Stamp,coffee bean was a Hero Arts Stamp. Bow was in my ribbon box, I do not know the company name.Sorry.

Hope you have a great Fathers Day!

I Love Coffee

I love coffee,anywhere,anytime,anyplace. My favorite is hazelnut.When I found this paper I knew what I wanted to do with it. It just looks like Hazelnut coffee to me. I can not remember the name of the paper,but will post it this afternoon,when I find out. The coffee cup stamp I found at Michaels,it is a Hampton Art stamp. I could not find a link to this stamp.I will try again this afternoon.The sentiment is from Verve Stamps. The ribbon I have had for along time.Might have gotten it from Hobby Lobby.

Maybe he will come out of retirement this year, for one more round of fun.

I have had such a hard time getting this blog up and going.First I forgot ALL the user names, passwords.I'm surprised they didn't what to know what was on the grocery list.The answer to that , would be salad dressing!
Then walks in the 29 year old who could stop you dead, with his blue eyes.The fix it all guy. Well it seems the blog as I knew it for 3 days was GONE in computer heaven. So we started all over again!BUMMER! He leaves me with complete directions on paper. Guess what? New blog gone!

Well, the person that I'm,took the Bull( computer) by the "horns" and started to dig into the past computer work.
Guess what? I think I have it all back! Please do not tell Blue eyes!

Hoping I can post a few pictures tomorrow!
