"Wishful Thinking" - Blog with Friends

Welcome to this month's edition of "Blog with Friends". Today, I join six other bloggers as we highlight topics aligned with the theme "Wishful Thinking". You'll find visuals and links to the related content at the bottom of this post.
I have absolutely fallen in love with this exclusive stamp set from Close To My Heart. It's called "Perk Up". The sentiments and images just make me happy and I smile each time I create something with it. Even if you aren't a coffee drinker, does someone who deserves some happy mail love coffee? What about cocoa? Or...regardless...would they love a happy card that contains a message of support or encouragement, with a fun sentiment?! It's perfect for anyone so don't limit your thinking (or their happy)!

In regards to how this happy card ties into "Wishful Thinking"...well... While I didn't waste any time putting this stamp set to use, I am ready for some cooler weather in Georgia. I'm excited to back in the South(east) to enjoy the changing of the colors and beautiful seasons. To me, this card design (and stamp set) screams Fall and I'm ready for it! So that is my wishful thinking for today - wishing you Sweater Weather (and soon). It's awesome that the season is right around the corner.

I used various techniques on this card including "Paper Tearing", "Fussy-Cutting", "Second-Generation Stamping" "Ink Distressing (with Sponge Daubers), and I incorporated Watercolors into the coloring of the coffee/cocoa. There are so many fun techniques to do with limited supplies and I would love to show you more! Consider joining my VIP Group on Facebook where I do just that (and there is never any sales pressure; just good ol' fun)! 

Feel free to ask me questions about my creation! Now...who should I send this card to? 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Consider reviewing the content of my friend's posts (shown below) and go check out what they have to share with you. We all appreciate Blog Love, in the way of a comment, so please consider leaving them.

  1. As a coffee lover, who is friends with numerous coffee lovers, I can't tell you how many people I'd like to make this project for.

  2. I love the coffee cup and have many friends that this would be perfect for.

  3. Love this! I am soooo glad it's sweater weather, and as a former Starbucks employee, I am always up for a nice cup!


Thanks for showing me some blog love with your comments!
