Is it just me or are the weeks just flying through? It only seemed like a couple of days ago I posted my card for the DSC24 and here we are with the next one! I thought it was just week when it was 10 weeks till Stampin’ Up! Convention and now its just 19 days away!

Hopefully this week will slow down a little as we are all on two weeks’ school holidays so we can sleep in a little each morning – I love school holidays and those sleep ins!DSC25

While I was making my card last night for this sketch I thought of another so today you get two cards and here’s my first card.

I just love this coffee stain image and in the shape of a C too.  I think its just so clever.

Now I must apologise for the quality of this photo as I just  couldnt get a good shot of it. Maybe I need one of those little tent things or maybe I need a better camera or maybe I just need to read the manual so I know how to overcome those ‘bright bits’.

I have distressed around the edges of the Creamy Caramel layer and after stamping the coffee stain I lightly sponged in Chocolate Chip all around the image and a little darker around the edges of the cardstock.

The cups were just coloured with the Stampin Write markers and then stamped individually and I used my 1 1/4″ and 1 3/8″ square punches to layer the coffee cups.

I’ve used some of the gorgeous paper from the new Tea Party Designer Series Paper pack. This was the first time I’ve cut into any of the new DSP packs and thought I was very brave to do so! This pack is just gorgeous with beatiful colours and it was hard to cut this piece as it has a gorgeous pattern on the back!

Again I’ve just used the Stampin’ Write markers to colour the cup images and the square punches to layer them. I’ve also used my Elegant Eggplant marker to colour in the words only and stamped that directly onto the Designer Series Paper.

I do hope you like my challenge cards and dont be surprised to see the Sip by Sip stamp set and the Tea Party DSP used in lots of samples in upcoming months

Have a great Saturday and make sure you have all the eggs you need for tomorrow and have a chocolate egg for me as I’m on my Weight Watchers diet and trying to be very good but this IS chocolate we are talking about!!
