Starting the Week Off Right

We took a mini family trip this weekend just to get away.  With three little ones, our trips aren’t extravagant, by any means.  We keep things simple and just enjoy ourselves!  The older boys got to go swimming at our motel, DH went bike shopping and found one and I got to go to Archiver’s!  Woohoo!  I’ve been asked to make an album for my grandfather who recently moved to an assisted living facility.  He has lots of photos of family from over the years and the photos are sitting in two shoe boxes right now.  I found a 3-ring album and some photo sleeves at Archiver’s that should make it pretty easy to put an album together for him!

Today’s Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast Stampers this week is Neva and she has a wonderful gallery!  I CASE’d this card.  I love cards with a coffee theme!

Supplies:
Stamps – Flourishes (Coffee with Friends set), Elzybells (Cool Beans set, sentiment)
Paper – SU Real Red, Tempting Turquoise cardstocks, Paper Trey white cardstock
Ink – SU Tempting Turquoise, Real Red
Accessories – Cuttlebug embossing folders, SU polka dot ribbon, SU button (from Brights collection), Nestabilities (Labels 14), Copic Spica pens (added sparkle to the heart and flourish on the cup), red twine, foam squares
