Coffee Break …




Good morning, I hope everyone had a lovely weekend

Thanks as always for your comments, I love to read them and will do another random commenter's candy draw later in the week just as a little thank you

I went and lost my wedding ring over the weekend so was a bit gutted, it’s never been off my finger in 20 years

I wear 5 rings on that finger; 2 wedding rings that were from both my Grandmas, my engagement ring and an eternity ring so out of them all if I had to lose one I suppose that had the least value in monetary or sentimental terms. I hope it’s not a bad omen, I have no idea where I lost it so unlikely that it will turn up now  …but I will keep on looking, you never know!


Onto today’s card and this is one I made when we had the new mini masterpiece sheets out a few weeks ago


The image is called Coffee Break and I used a colour scheme that would not normally be my first choice. I loved the papers, they matched nicely with the image and I was quite pleased with the result…





Here’s what I used …


Core’dinations card

K & Co papers

Tim Holtz brads

Crealies border die

Lace and twine from The Ribbon Girl

Gardenia, asters and rose buds from Wild Orchid Crafts

Sentiment from the Vintage Labels – Just To Say stamp set


That’s it from me, I’m going to put some washing out now because it’s given another good day so hopefully it will be nice and dry when I come home.


Have a lovely day all
