Feel The Joy Tag

It is a watercolor challenge for day ten at Ellen Hutson's 12 Days of Tags.  I managed to make this tag in between ironing three hours (yep, it had piled up) and fixing a breakfast casserole.  My bunch likes to have "breakfast" suppers and I do a mean Sausage, Biscuit and Gravy Casserole.  I stamped the image on watercolor paper with a black VersaFine ink pad.  I watercolored the image using Spectrum Noir Aqua Watercolor Markers.  I applied the color to a clear acrylic block and used a small artist brush with water.  I was inspired by Kelly Griglione and the way she layered her tags.

Sending Love At Christmas Tag

The challenge for day nine at Ellen's 12 Tags of Christmas is create a tag with floral elements.  I was inspired by Sharon Harnist and her beautiful tag.  I had fun getting caught up making my tags today for Ellen's 12 Days of Tags.   I'm linking this one up at:




Black and White Holiday Tags

I'm playing catch-up today for Ellen Hutson's 12 Days of Tags.  I didn't get to make tags yesterday as I finally got around to decorating our Christmas trees.  Yay!  Sometimes you have to do other things besides create in your craft room....wink.  :)  Today I woke up early to a cold and rainy day, got a cup of coffee and headed to my craft room.  Day seven's challenge was a black and white color scheme.  I was inspired by Lisa Spangler.  Once I got started making these tags, I couldn't stop!  Fun, fun, fun!


I even made 54 of the tag which says "no peeking."  Now all I need to do is start wrapping presents and use them!  :)  I'm going to link these tags up at:

Let It Snow Mugs Card

All good things come to an end and so this is my last card for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I wanted to stay in my craft room today but my little voice (do you have one of those?) told me to "get to work."  Time to get trees decorated and rooms back in order (toting ornament boxes back to attic).  So I was good and listened to my little voice (but still would rather have been in my craft room drinking coffee and making coffee cards).  Thanks to Amy for putting together another FUN blog hop.  I've had a good time and hope you have enjoyed seeing all my caffeine fueled inspirations.  :)  Until next time........


Merry Christmas Y'all Coffee Holiday Card

I at almost at the finish line with my holiday coffee cards.  I have one more almost finished but been busy getting my trees decorated.  Decided today was the day (or else Christmas was going to be here and trees still bare...wink).  So I'll keep this short and sweet since the time for posting our coffee cards is almost up (sniff, sniff).  It has been a fun hop (like they always are)....full of beautiful cards for inspiration and fabulous prizes from generous sponsors.

Happy Santa Coffee Card

The time is nearly up for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  This is where I put on my "sad" face.  It has been fun creating in my crafty cave and avoiding all the "Christmas chores."  :)  Speaking of Christmas chores, you will be glad to know I have decorated two of our three trees TODAY plus hope to finish the third.  I'm ready to get all the Christmas ornament boxes back in the attic and my house back in order.   I made this Santa card last night trying to get my Christmas cards finished up.  I need to be addressing them and getting them on their way.  This "happy" coffee drinking Santa will be linking up at:

Cup of Cheer Holiday Card

I got a new paper pad from Michael's a few weeks ago and was thrilled with one of the images in it.  I knew it would make a fast and easy holiday card.  I added a stamped sentiment by Hero Arts, baker's twine bow and a few snowflake spankles...and almost instant gratification.  (Wink.)  If you haven't been joining in on the fun at the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, then you have been missing out.  I'm dreading when it is ends because I won't have any more excuses for not doing all the holiday "chores."  ;)  Oh well, enjoy it while it lasts!  :)
