Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #177

Happy Wednesday!  Another week is halfway done and we are one step closer to March break here in Ontario!  I am some excited - so are my boys!  We are going to see my parents on Friday and this year we're going to fly so they are beyond pumped to fly on an airplane and see Grannie and Papa all in one day!  I'm not sure they'll be able to contain their excitement!

Today we have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches from the lovely and extremely creative Karren Johnson!  Karren's cards are always so beautiful and fresh!  Head over to her blog and you will not be disappointed!

I didn't freak out when I saw that tiny, little circle!  I knew right away that I needed that circle to be a coffee cup!  This card is going to a special friend who loves coffee and who has been providing Bed and Breakfast services to the man who's painting my house!  I do have the greatest friends!  I am sending some chocolate cupcakes "home" with him tonight and this card!

I do love that coffee cup stamp and die!  I could use it for so many people!  I still have a lot of paper left in my Stacked with Love DSP stack!  Thankfully, since they're double sided and generally have one side that doesn't have hearts, they can be used all year round!

I threw on some sequins.  I just thought it needed a little sparkle!  Who doesn't love a little sparkle?!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Kraft
DSP: Stacked with Love DSP Stack
Stamps: Coffee Cozy (Lil' Inkers)
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Coffee Cozy Dies (Lil' Inkers), Sequins, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have the time to head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created!

Have a wonderful day!
