LPS Monday: What's Brewin?


Hey everyone!

Hope you all had an awesome weekend. I did...got lots done! I was a BIT behind on taking all of my decorations down...so I did that, cleaned the entire house, did some storing/organizing, worked on Saturday night, had a FAB Party w/ all my Prettie Peeps last night and I still managed to stamp NINE cards this weekend! Yay! That's pretty good for me these days LOL...so I'm excited about that...you'll be seeing them soon ;)

Today's card for The Little Paper Shop uses the brand new Make Your Own Mug set that we released last week. This set is extra special as it was designed by our very own Elyssa...who just so happens to be a teenager as well! How awesome is THAT?

I particularly enjoyed doing a bit of paper piecing on this card...really made it quite fun! I love the yummy brown and olive tones in the DP, too.

Speaking of which, did you know that The Little Paper Shop is going to be doing more challenges this year? Yep, that's right? Like this color combo? Then head on over to the LPS Blog and play my challenge this week! All you have to do is use Brown, Olive, and Cream in your card and you're good to go (ya need a little cream in your coffee, right? I do!)

Can't wait to see what you all whip up...feel free to leave a comment here or on the LPS blog so that the DT can all oogle your fabulous creations! If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword LPSC01. Can't wait to see what's brewin!

Hugs,
Jessica :)

Hi Jessica,

Love this card it is so cute!!!!

See I have this problem and Janna could tell you all about it, but I have a huge aversion to the color brown.

I know I know like every paper crafter out there loves it and uses it all the time, but you will very rarely see me use brown.

I think I am allergic to brown!!!!

I like it on other peoples cards, just can not use it in my crafting or in my house much if I can avoid it at all!!!!

So not sure I can play in this challenge!!!!!

You should go read the comment I left Janna on Friday about using that aweful Yucky color on all her stuff it just ruins it!!!

But hey I really do love your card you did a great job on it even if you did use that yucky color!!!!!
