Be Magical and Coffee, Yum!

i've been working on some new cards, but i can't show them here just yet - some are on their way (or will be) to friends, and the others are part of a batch for a customer. Yes, a customer! She is one of my best friends - we've known each other since we were 15, met in high school psychology class. i know she reads my blog, so i want her to at least be a little surprised when she gets her cards.
So instead i thought i'd post some older cards. These are from a couple months ago.

i made 2 of these and sent one to my MIL. She's constantly bugging me to sell my cards. ;)

Ingredients: PP-MME; CS-stash; stamps-Rhonna Farrer's Swirls V:1, Brenda Walton's Garden Words (flowers), sentiment-?; ink-Palette Hybrid, Colorbox; brad-MM.

i made this one for my mom. A little background on this: Two Christmases ago, we got mom a Senseo coffee pot, the kind that takes pods and makes 1-2 cups at a time. We are some serious coffee drinkers in our family, and for years i've been grinding beans to make the best, freshest coffee i can. Well, goodbye beans! The Senseo pot makes the best coffee i think i've ever had, and it's never, ever bitter. i can't say as much for my beans. With Senseo, the coffee even comes out with a foamy top, and the overall texture is velvet and smooth. A few months ago i finally got my own Senseo pot and shelved my regular pot for emergencies, i.e. if we run out of pods and can't get to the store right away. That has yet to happen because i stock up on pods, hehe. Anyway, this card was in honor of that oh-so-delicious coffee.

Ingredients: PP-stash (can't remember who makes it); CS-stash; stamps-foam stamps from Wal-Mart, letters from Alphabet Pixie's Love Letters set, faux ribbon from Art Warehouse Ribbons and Lace set; ink-Palette Hybrid, Colorbox, Ranger Archival; ribbon-Wal-Mart, A.C. Moore; brads-MM; pop-dots.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone has a wonderful day!


  1. Very cool cards Jess. Love that coffee one, even though I'm not a drinker myself. Really good job making that PP with the coffee beans...that's something I'm terrible at...maybe you could give me lessons?
    I've never heard of a Senseo coffee maker and must go look it up on google now!

  2. Great Job on both of the cards. I love the color combo on the 1st one and the coffee one is really neat too!!
