Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Good Morning,

No funny stories to share or any exciting news so we'll just jump into this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge. Here's the fabulous sketch Arlana gave us to work with:

And here's the card I made with it! We got to pick an image from this week's sponsor, Fresh Brewed Designs. When I went looking, I fell in love with this image. If you know me, you know I LOVE my coffee. The hubby gave me a fabulous coffee maker for Christmas and I'm tellin' ya! I will never go out for coffee again! It's that wonderful - and then not to mention the yummy coffee beans my sister sent me. Mmmm...

And you also know that I was still playing (and haven't stopped) with the Cricut and SCAL. I found on the SVG Cuts site a free download of a collection of cuts called My Mom's Attic and in this collection is this wonderful doily that I thought was perfect to use with my card.

I hope to see you join us this week. Don't forget to head on over to SSW for the details on how to play. Leave the girls some love, too!

Darling card Mel. Love your fun colors. and that you used the Scals. I need to do more checking into it. My friend owes me either the curcit program or that one . If I get that one I just pay the difference. Thanks for everything and for loading the blog this week.

Melissa, I love your card. The way you colored the coffee cups make them look like they could be ceramic. I also love your scallop with the hearts. And my next purchase is the Nestie Wizard labels. Love those. And it looks like Nancy, Arlana and I will all be wanting the SCAL. I thought I was finished buying supplies! Ha, Ha!
