The May 2016 Sampler....For Coffee Lovers

  The theme for the May Sampler Class is "Coffee"....for all the coffee lovers I know. The color theme is brown, turquoise and coral; with small accents of silver. The sentiment in the center, decorating a huge coffee cup says "You are the cream in my Coffee". Some of the mini icons are: a coffee grinder, Irish coffee with whipped cream, an Enamelware camping coffee pot and mug, a French Press pot and a full coffee cup seen from above and decorated with a cream swirl. Makes you want to run to Starbucks.........

Daring Cardmakers....Celebrate Love!

This week we’ll celebrate love.
Prince William married his Kate 5 years ago on April 29th 2011.That’s reason enough to make wedding/anniversary
cards for all the lovely couples we know personally.
Or your partner ;-).

With such a lovely and timely theme....and for my last card as Guest Designer at Daring Cardmakers....I chose to make 
                     two amusing wedding cards featuring the paper pieced Penguin Bride, Groom and their little Flower Girls. On the first....the bride and groom are atop their wedding cake. On the second card...the bride is waiting to walk down the aisle with her adorable little flower girls.
                                      Visit the Daring Cardmakers site and take a look at all the amazing cards that the designers have created for this theme....and visit each week for a new challenge!
                                       Thank you Kathy Black for choosing me to be your Guest Designer for March and April and for being so warm and welcoming.....I enjoyed it very much.
