Stampin' Up! Patterned Occasions Latte Love!

Happy Tuesday stampers! I had an enjoyable day with Liam yesterday. Mondays are often a hard day for little guys because all of their routines are messed up by the weekend and especially Sundays. They just can't get all of their normal naps during church, which makes for a hard night on Sunday sometimes and a sleepy Monday. This was the case for Liam today, but he wasn't actually cranky, just snuggly more (which I sure didn't mind!), a little more attention-needy than normal (which I also didn't mind!) and took an extra nap today. Tonight and tomorrow he will be back to normal, but I don't go back to see him until Friday, sigh. . .

The third card we made Saturday used the cup stamp from Patterned Occasions, that fun, free Sale-a-bration set again! I've found this stamp used in alot of rich, earthy colors, but I wanted to try something a bit more feminine, and I believe I achieved just what I had in mind, what do you think?

Latte love 1

Basic Gray card base, Fancy Fan-embossed Pool Party layer, Tea Lace Doily, Floral Frames Framelit-cut Sycamore Street Designer Paper layer, and Pool Party 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon. The cup was stamped twice, once in Basic Gray on a Whisper White Floral Frames Framelit-cut layer, then again with Pool Party ink on a Whisper White scrap. The Pool Party cup has been hand-cut with Paper Snips and mounted with a Stampin' Dimensional.

Same color/paper scheme on the inside, with the greeting, Beautiful Birthday, stamped with Pool Party ink!

Overall a very quick and easy card!

Unfortunately for me, I had to take a break from my taxes and deal with my eyes and then my monthly class this past weekend, so my taxes are still NOT done! I plan to spend most of today tackling the paperwork to get them done, with a break in the evening to go to Galatia to stamp with those lovely ladies for my second Punch/Technique Class for the month!

Wish me luck to get my taxes done quickly so I can get back to stampin'!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!
