Lets us drink...coffee!


I used Timeless Textures and Balloon Celebration stamps sets from Stampin' Up! These stamp sets are so versatile. Timeless Textures can add so much to any card or layout while the Balloon Celebration has ... of course ... balloons ... and you can customize the sentiments above for tea, champagne and even hot chocolate. I loved how simple this card is -- but I am itching to add some stickles. If you are interested in these stamps, consider going to this link.

Shabby Red & Cream Chalk Mason Jars

Here's my shabby mason jars that I created for a vending event. I had won the jars at a Women's Club event. They were sprayed with red gloss spray paint on the inside and then tied with that gorgeous gingham ribbon. 

I painted these mason jars with layers of chalk cream-colored paint, and when dry sanded them down. I love how the original red color shows through, and think that they may make the perfect gift for a good friend.
