Coffee a magical substance

I just realized that the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is going on so I figured that I better make a card for this since I have always enjoyed this blog hop.  Naturally, I made a Stella card and kept it simple.

I'm a great housekeeper....

There is a new sketch for Stella at Catch the Bug.  For my card, I used a humorous stamp, Stella Tidbits housekeeper.  I put glossy accents on her glasses and the water puddle.
Funny that I have never had a cleaning person when I had a family, but now that I have gone back to work and have less time to craft....I am considering it.  I don't want to spend my free time cleaning, I would rather craft, lol.

Paige's Graduation

My son's girlfriend will be graduating in a few weeks, so I made this card for her. I used an image from Bugaboo, called Graduation Girl Digi Stamp.  Today there is a new challenge starting at Catch the Bug which is an Anything Goes.  There are so many wonderful stamps at Bugaboo and there is always a weekly freebie.  For the background I had some fun playing with my Distress Oxide inks.
