I am not a tea or coffee drinker but if I were it would be in a cup as pretty as this one

Joseph Coat

OMG it took me many attempts to get anything I wanted to post I don't know why I have done this technique in the past . However I did just learn the weathered bows and decided not to cover the background but let it shine in all it's glory

Weathered Ribbon

Because I could not get in to view the tutorial for this challenge I followed Pat's method except because I have never don't this before  I heated the bows before I put them on the card  I love this technique and will use it often

Household Inspired

This is my most used mug . I bought the mug and tiny butterfly  stamps at a yard sale and when I got home I wondered why. Now it is a perfect fit for this challenge.

If I could post my desk top , my hands and my hair you would see lots and lots of glitter ,. However on the card I glittered the grass and the ribbons

Kraft Color?

Fifty years I have been an interior designer worked with color every single day I have never heard of Kraft color . I googled it and got the colors of thee Kraft food boxes, going by the sample I am guessing it is the butcher paper color which is what I used , however it doesn't look that beige/brown on the screen . I used MFP Dogwood set to follow the sketch.


Climbing the work ladder to that new job "It's just a matter of timer"
