Hi there...

...ok, so was yesterday not the most EERILY quiet Blogger day ever?  I even checked a few times to see if something was wrong!  LOL!   I did notice that on a few of my fellow stampers' blogs I was unable to leave comments during the day so I came back last night and wanted to share some love.  But not only that, it was just QUIET.  Weird.  In a good way, a little bit, cuz I got to "detach" from the internet a bit, and a bad way cuz I kinda missed my Bloggin' buds, too ;)

Well, today is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge so I anticipate that there will be a few more of you around for her FABULOUS sketch, right?   Without further adieu feast your eyes on MTSC70:

Isn't it an awesome layout?  I love it.   Today's card was fun for me too because I got to use these SUPER cute new stamps from the Spring CC Designs kit from All That Scraps!  I stamped off some of these cuties the last time I went to visit my good friend Pammy.  She has SOOO many awesome ATS stamps, oh my!  I loved this little girl w/ the Cherries on her outfit and what a fab excuse to use what's left of my Cherry Hill DP from October Afternoon before i DIVE (and I mean DIVE!) in to my new Fly a Kite and Thrift Shop stacks! Have I MENTIONED my love affair with paper?!?  Oh dear me...

Also notable, my love affair with THIS:

Yep, folks.  Available at Costco for my fellow die-hards.  The Coffee People, Inc. actually, like, know who I am and tweet back and forth with me.  Is that cool?  Or do I have a "little" bit of a problem?!   I'll have to leave that up to you to decide...be gentle, LOL!

Well, be sure to check out the rest of the MUSES today including our SUPER fab Guest, Debbie Olson:



See you back here tomorrow with a colorful twist on the Diedrich Dare!

Live, love, laugh, and Smile,
Jessica ;) xoxo

Love your card Jess, those papers are so pretty, and so is that little cutie.

Glad to see you've stocked up on Coffee, hate to think of you caffeine deprived, that's just not right :)

Have a great day

Your coloring is the bomb on your little girl. Good call on getting some images of her while visiting your friend!! The cherries are adorable!! :-)

margie c said...

Awww, what a sweet card! I adore these lil stamps too! Your coloring is awesome and your right, those papers go perfectly!

It has been quiet, I couldn't believe that my inbox this morning only had 21 emails, lol! I'm guessing half of us are enjoying the spring weather and the other half are hiding in their beds sick with a cold, fever and to top it off, allergies! ugh!
Sorry for the ramble, lol!

Is that donut flavored coffee?! I don't drink coffee, but if so, I am sooo willing to give that a try ;)

Happy Tuesday!
hugs, margie

Adorable card! So, the coffee thing - is it that it's really good (like way better that normal coffee), or do you love it because you can make one cup at a time? :-)Traci
