Latte Love...STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Sketch #32, Anything Goes, Simon Says Monday and Wednesday Challenges~Anything Goes

Happy May 1 and Happy Friday!

We're off in a few minutes to grocery shop (aisle-wandering actually...my husband enjoys that sort of thing), so given I don't know how long that will take (5 minutes would be my choice...), I'm parachuting in with my card now.

As I mentioned in my previous post, some a lot of new STAMPlorations goodies have joined my wee stash.  I've attempted a 'collage' card, for STAMPloration Bi-Weekly Sketch #32 and Anything Goes,



 using a few of them, and VERY  much following Shery's lead with her DT card.

Here's my Latte Love...posing this way and


that way...

Since it's double-double "anything goes', I'm also off to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Anything Goes and Simon Says Monday Challenge~Anything Goes.

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

Fabulous card! Yay for coffee! :)
Enjoy your trip to the grocery store...I would prefer 5 minutes, too. Not a huge fan of grocery shopping. ;)

Ok...I am on my way to pick up my latte, if it tastes as good as it looks it will be well worth the drive! This is so amazing!

Barb Ghig said...

You're a riot, Carol...I love how you posed your card :) Fabulous take on the sketch...I love your Latte cup, and how you worked your elements to create the collage! Very, very cool! I hope grocery shopping went quickly for you...I'm the same way, five minutes is plenty of time for that activity :)
