Espresso Yourself!

Writing reads: Be a coffee drinking individual - espresso yourself!

So this is my first attempt at a challenge... and probably not my last but I doubt I'll submit them all. Still caardvarks has a challenge for shaped cards... seemed like a good chance to put my coffee addiction to use... so I'm giving this one a go.

The pictures and the writing is computer generated. I used whispers markers to colour.

A set of 6 every day cards I made - never done a set before, but I thought it would be cute... it is, but it was also a pain, lol.

Also made a little box to put them in.

Papers were digital papers that I printed. RPenn Express Yourself. Picture was computer generated. Words are from a stamp, I forget where I got it...

Proof that I haven't gone completely dark side... no pink in sight!

This brown/white/teal card would be perfect for a friend having a hard time.

Birthday Card: Abigail Van Buren Quote

A birthday card... ironincally Kerry has been using brown/pink again... thankfully these cards are all being made for a friend and not for myself or I'd start worrying about my sanity!

Shakespeare Quote Thank You Card

OMG Kerry used pink again, on purpose. The world may be coming to an end.

I came across this shakespeare quote while playing in the quote garden and well... it just seemed too good to pass up for a thank you card.

Ribbon is from Laura Ashley, the tulips are a stamp from... I have no idea actually... and the papers were sent to me by a friend in the states, so again, no idea.

Thinking Of You - Brown, Green and Pink

This card with a Brown, Green and Pink colour palette (although this photo doesn't do it justice), could be used for a Birthday or just an every day sort of card.

I'm making cards for a friend at the moment and this is one of them, but I don't think she'll mind me sharing and if she does, I'll just have to keep this one for myself, lol!

Birthday Card for my Uncle

I made this for my Uncles birthday - my Uncle and I have a very snarky relationship, he's my favourite Uncle, but we spends a lot of time snarking, so I thought this was appropriate.
