Coffee Break





Hello,

I don't know about you but next to time to get off work, coffee break is my next best time, lol.  It's time for a new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge.  This week it's all about St. Patrick's Day or use Green.  We are sponsored by The Paper Shelter this week.  I would like to thank TPS for giving the DT some wonderful samples to use.  And I say samples because this one comes with a precolored image as well, which is what I am using.  Yes, complete with background.  I did stamp the sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Coffee in Memento Black in the label.  I also used medium scallops - die-namics and leaf filled flourish - die-namics.  I am not sure what happened there to that leaf but I did try to shorten it, and it did look better but then it slipped a little when it was wet with glue and well then, there you have it.  lol.  A bow might have fixed it but when I tried a couple of them out, it just looked all wrong, lol. 

This is the first time I  have used a precolored image and I have to tell you, I could get used to being spoiled, lol.  Not all the time of course, but you know, once in a while is great.  Especially when they are adorable like this one! 

Have you been by the store lately to see all the new items added to the store.  I swear I miss stuff if I don't check every single day, lol.  I love it all!  Laura has added Copic markers in great collections that blend together.  I wished I would have bought my Copic markers like this instead of all random.  If you are just now starting your collection or adding to your collection, be sure to stop by and see the one's she has listed.

I hope to see your fabulous creations in this weeks Challenge, I will be looking for them!

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments!

Holly

Beautiful card Holly! I was hoping someone would use this image and she is perfect for your card. I have never used a pre-colored image either but after seeing this, would love to try it!

So sweet! A pre-coloured image is such a huge time-saver...but there's something therapeutic about colouring images, isn't there?lol
