Made Espressly for You

As a stamper and card maker, we all suffer from the same ailment, paper hoarding. I made a challenge to myself, I will not buy any designer paper until my birthday...which isn't until the beginning of September!! YIKES!! Believe me, it was tough over the Christmas holidays because there were so many gorgeous papers out there!! So far, I am still holding strong, but I do have my weak this past weekend. So instead of getting on-line and making a purchase of paper, I printed off some of my favorite digital images, got to coloring and creating some cards. One of them was with this Fresh Brewed Designs image called Latte Love. Actually Heather has created several latte images along the lines of this one, and you can find them HERE under the Coffee heading of digital stamps. I think she needs to draw more of these fun and fabulous cups!!!! So Heather, if you're reading this, hint, hint!!!! Heheheh! She knows I love to tease her!!   

I wanted to shout out a reminder that our April rubber release and blog hop is coming up this Saturday thru Monday. Mark it on your calendar because this is a definite must see!


  1. I so need to adopt this same challenge for myself - no more paper until my birthday! I think I am going to give it a go. Love the cup - I need to get that one - makes a super fun card!!!

  2. EHEHEHEH!! You are soooo sweet Linda!!! I ADORE this card. The colors are beautiful and I love your paper piercing. GORGEOUS!!!

    Funny - I am on the same page as you for the paper. The only thing with me is I buy mine cheap and in bulk... so I have LOTS of the SAME paper... hahaha!!! which is good because if I did not I would hoard my favorites.. now I can use it :) but bad because I do want more when I see it... but too have been good and not purchased any (go me... go us!! :) hahhaa)

    I will take your hint and your challenge. Thinking Thinking Thinking....

    Big hugs and lots of smiles to you


  3. I just used this same image to make a birthday card for my daughter! As for the paper...I have made that same promise many times & each time I have failed!! Love that designer paper! (& Heather's images)
