my first MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge

I decided to give the My Favorite Things sketch challenge a try   I really thought I had more image stamps from MFT, turns out most of my MFT products are sentiment stamps and dies (better get shopping!) .  I have the Cool Cat set and needed a birthday card for my niece who LOVES cats so here's her card and my Sketch Challenge submission.

 I decided not not cut off the side of the circle for this one.  I had a lot of fun with this sketch and will be using it again for sure!

Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Two of my favorite things in and card making!   Here are my entries for the 2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  This is such a fun blog hop - lots of entries and lots of prizes to be won!  Head over and submit your fall themed coffee cards!

I already linked up my submissions from my Flickr account, but then decided to post on my very neglected blog that I hope to bring back to life.

For this card I used Lawn Fawn's How You Bean? stamp set and coordinating die set and turned what was supposed to be Jelly Beans into Coffee beans,  I colored them with Copics and used a black multi-liner to create the coffee bean lines.

 For the "need I say more?" card I used an older Hero Arts wood block stamp for the coffee cup and a sentiment from Your Next Stamp's Java Geek stamps set.  The patterned papers are from a Jen Hadfield 6x6 paper pack and the stamped background is a new Hero Arts stamp that I just got called Starry Night Brush Strokes Bold Prints and I stamped it in gold Delicata ink.

y third card is my favorite of the three.  I used a Christmas Holiday Coffee stamp and die set from Hero Arts and turned it into a fall set.   I fussy-cut the leaves from an older Stampin' Up fall patterned paper.   The other patterned papers are from another fall themed 6x6 paper pad by Jen Hadfield that I got in Joann's.
