I Heart Coffee by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello friends!  I made this card quite a while ago and never posted it.  I am a coffee lover so I start every morning with a large mug of black coffee.  So enjoyable!  There is a blog hop starting today and until March 26 over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog and I decided to enter it:    http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2021/03/2021-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/

This adorable image is a clear stamp by Krafin' Kimmie Stamps but I am unable to find a link for it.  I coloured it with Copic markers. The flowers are handmade. That's all from me today.  Thank you for visiting and hope to see you again.  I wish you a happy weekend. Until next time, Lori xx

Materials and Tools Used 

Frame:     Spellbiners "Labels 11" die
Flourish:  ZVA Creative

Ribbon and Swarovski crystals are from my stash.

Gnome Gift by Conie Fong

Hi friends!  Happy St. Patrick's Day to those of you who observe it.  I love all mythical creatures and so I decided to make a card using another one of Conie Fong's darling gnomes.  This sweet little guy is "Gnome Gift", and can be found here, along with some other little gnomes:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/880719854/sale-digital-stamp-digi-stamp-digistamp?ref=shop_home_active_36                                                               

This card is similar to my previous card which has another gnome by Conie, and I plan to send them to my sons whose birthdays are in April.

The balloons, sentiment and the cupcake are free clipart images from the Internet.  I used Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils to colour this super sweet image.  

Conie has her current Facebook challenge going on now.  Why not join in the fun?  https://www.facebook.com/groups/396730687168777

Gnome Surprise by Conie Fong

Happy Saturday!   Gnomes are regarded as symbols of good luck, and that is something we all need during these unprecedented times.   My DT card today features the darling "Gnome Surprise" by Conie Fong, found here in her etsy shop:


This adorable little gnome comes with four other images, and in PNG and JPEG format.  I made this inspirational card for Conie's current challenge on Facebook:
