Coffee & Friends TRULY are the Perfect Blend

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Did you miss me? I sure missed each of you! I had a really relaxing vacation and attending the Stampin' Up! Regional in Telford on Saturday was the perfect ending to my time off!

The card, or rather card front, that I'm sharing with you is the swap I created for the event. Regular readers will know how much I absolutely LOVE the Perfect Blend stamp set and I was gutted when I saw it on the retiring list. I'd got the set in my starter kit when I joined SU and with Telford being my first event, I decided to use it anyway. I made 60 swaps and also added a cup to my name badge, so I fussy cut 121 cups, lids and wraps! Cutting and putting them together took over 7 hours, but it was WELL worth it...

Card: Pear Pizzazz, Pistachio Pudding, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake
Ink: Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake
Stamp sets: Perfect Blend and Gorgeous Grunge
Tools and embellishments: Petite Petals, Bracket Label and Decorative Label punches and Basic Rhinestones

Coffee and friends TRULY are the perfect blend and here's a pic of me and my beautiful Stampin' Sister Yvonne. We both had the best day and I can't wait to see her again soon!

Most of the products I've used for today's creation are available 24/7 in my Online Shop. Click the images below to be taken straight to them.
