Two More Cards for Today

Hi!! Another evening post for me! Well, today is snowed......all day long. Originally they said we were going to get about 10" but then they came back and said oh probably 2-4". Well, I think it finally stopped tonight and we have probably about 6-7". Lots of snow :) I did run my errands this morning before the snow really got started!

Today I have two cards to share with you. Only one of them was for a challenge and it wasn't this first one. This first card is sooooooo ME! The only change I would have to make is that the saying would be, "Some mornings you just know it's going to be a two pot day!" because every morning is a two - four cup day for me :) I loved these stamps as soon as I saw them and a friend of mine saw them first and showed them to me because she KNEW that I would have to have them.....thanks Tracey...I think :)

Supplies used for this first card:
Paper: October Afternoon - Hometown Collection , Bazzill Bling
Stamps: Stampendous
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx black, Chestnut Roan Chalk ink, Copic markers
Other: May Arts ribbon, Dew Drops - water, Blingz - Wintergreen, EKSuccess photo corner punch, EKSuccess corner rounder

This card was made for the Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS. The challenge was to 'Stretch' yourself and use at least 2 things that you don't normally use. My things were: large pieces of 'busy' paper, my die cuts, and chalks (I had to dust them off to use them :) It was fun trying some things that were not my usual routine, I really like stretching!!
Supplies for this card:
Other: Scalloped punches, Inkssentials white pen, May Arts ribbon, EKSuccess photo corner punch, Heidi Swapp distresser, chalk, Quickutz fox die

Our quote for the day: "Blessings brighten when we count them." - Maltbie D. Babcock

Thanks so much for coming by and have a great warm evening!

Both of these are so adorable but I LOVE that first one! So adorable!

Oh my, that first one is too cute...what a great sentiment. I agree...I'm a 2-pot kind of gal myself! How neat to see that fun ribbon used with two different color schemes and work so well with both!! Love 'em!

I love them both! I'm not a coffee drinker, but my first thought was that two cups didn't seem like so much! Sorry about your snow, but I'm sure it will go away quickly. We missed the snow, but the cold is back. I thought about doing the challenge to "stretch ourselves" but after doing my treadmill, I didn't feel like any more "exercise!" :)

Awwww, adorable cards!! I'm with Jami...some days I could totally go for two pots, LOL!

Lots of snow, huh? know what that means? Stay home and stamp! :)

Hey Jeanette, I like both your cards and I just drink the coffee until it's gone - no need in counting cups :-) I really like how you used both sides of the paper in the first card. I've got some of that left that would be perfect card size.

Tracey said...

You're welcome!! :)

Teresa said...

Did you buy all those monkey stamps? They look great when YOU use them.

Wendy said...

These cards are both so cute. I love they monkey one (amen to that). And the second one is awesome (how come you stopped using your Quikutz? You used to love that thing - and they're the perfect size for cards.).

Amy said...

HAHAH I had a two cup day today! Fantastic card... I had a laugh out loud moment!

LOL!! I'm not a coffee drinker, but since I drink hot tea AND hot chocolate almost every day, I can't imagine two cups being considered a lot. ;) LOVE your cards -- both are really cheery and fun, but I think Changito is my favorite between the two (I love that monkey!).

BTW, how on earth do you keep your teeth so white and beautiful drinking 2-4 cups of coffee a day?!? Good genes, I'm guessing. ;)
