Wake up and smell the coffee!

Over on TEW facebook page there is a mini colouring contest going on and there is a very special image which is only available to members of the Facebook group at a discounted price.  The image is 'Lucy Loo Coffee Aroma'.  I decided to challenge myself by going with red hair, I still struggle to find the right combinations.  So once I had finished colouring her I just had to make a card with her. I have used black cs and the paper is from a pad called Greatest Glory which I got from the Range. The black mat has been embossed with keys and behind that is a border cut using the Cricut.  I have embellished with skeleton leaves, a rolled paper flower and little key charm.

Prost Vater!

Just wanted to share a card I was trying to make in time for the challenge over at Club KennyK Facebook page but unfortunately work got in the way last week so I didn't get it finished until today! The image is 'Old Time Bartender'  and it's teamed up with 'Wine Cellar' background both from Kenny K stamps, I got them as a bundle which also comes with 'Sophisticated Gentleman' these are great for male cards.  I printed the wine cellar directly on to Kraft card then coloured the bartender in a mix of markers and added some gold liquid pearls to his waistcoat and a touch of sparkle to his beer.  The sentiment is peeloffs and the banner is cut on the Cricut.  I love this guy he makes me think of German bierfests and this in turn makes me think of my Dad!  So what better way to celebrate Fathers Day (yes I know I'm early but at least it's made now! lol)
