Happy Sunday, Friends! I hope you are able to find rest and relaxation today! I'm sharing a fun pocket card I made for my daughter for a sweet little galentine! It has a pocket for a sweet treat and a gift card pocket, as well. After creating the card base, I decorated the panels and pockets with older designer papers from Stampin' Up! and some sweet images from Sweet N Sassy Stamps! I love the coffee cup from Fill Me Up and the matching dies make it a breeze to add to any project.

To finish this card, I used an image from He is Risen, some designer paper scraps, cardstock and a few other odds and ends, like twine and staples!

Hello Friends! Sweet N Sassy Stamps has a GREAT release this month--again!! Backgrounds, sentiments, "out of the vault sets", stencils AND dies!
For today's card, I've combined a little of everything for what ended up being a cheery, colorful card--reminiscent of kiddie art, which I completely adore!!
Using Texture Tiles 10, I started building my scene with those adorable clouds! The Fence and Grass dies grounded the cute houses from Love Your Neighbor. The houses and sun are paper pieced to add extra interest and color. It really gives the card that kiddie art feel.
Finally, Words of Jesus is out of the vault and definitely a great set to add to your collection.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you KJV
If that isn't good news!! Lift your hearts and voices for Jesus! He cares for you, He has chosen you and prepares all of your next steps!

If you've already been hopping along, you just left Karen's blog. If not, you do not want to miss a thing! To start from the beginning of the hop, head over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog. You can find the entire hop list on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's Blog here.
Remember when repurposing household items to use with your card making was a thing? Maybe some of you are still doing it; admittedly, it's been a while for me. But, the packaging on my Peace Coffee was so colorful and fun, I just had to use it as a back drop for my first card. Stamped images include the coffee cup with wrap from Sweet N Sassy Stamps' new I Like Big Cups set. I also added to the tropical theme with a leaf from the Be A Flamingo set. Birthday Wordfetti for the win when it comes to sentiments! I love all the Wordfetti sets--they are super versatile!! The big bonus for this card, though, is that it smells like a coffee shop--just the way I imagine heaven smells!

Before the month completely runs out--can you belive that??--I wanted to share a summary of other goodies I've been working on.
My first two shares feature the Going Postal set. This gorgeous vintage set was designed by one of my Sweet Sisters. The scripty image is actually handwriting of a beloved member of her family (see the sample above). I just love that! There is something so intimate and comforting about a loved ones' handwriting. I have an autograph book from my childhood--when those were a thing! I love seeing the penmanship of my grandparents, parents and aunts and uncles.
The little gnomie from Winter Gnomes pairs perfectly with a sentiment from the new Coffee Talk 2 set. Who doesn't relate to "coffee before talkie?" I added some stripes to the background piece with the new Background Builders: Stripes--a great compliment to the embossed hearts (source: MFT stamps).
