Hope Wreath and Coffee Lovers blog Hop

I have two cards for you today.... first up is the card I made for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


I used a Bugaboo image and some Spellbinders dies.  The sentiment is a Penny Black one. 

Next up is a card I did this afternoon.  I picked up issue 125 Papercraft Essentials and it had a great stamp set.   I just had to make a card straight away


I stamped the beautiful wreath in Versafine green ink and then clear embossed it.  I used some Distress markers to colour the berries and leaves.  The dove was inked with Memento Gray Flannel ink and a few strokes of a pale gray Copic.  I stamped and embossed the bow and fussy cut it out.  The Hope die is by WPlus9 and is cut in some shimmery green paper.    Just love the result I got with this one.   I have about 10 more cards to make over the next week to send to my local relatives.

thanks for stopping by, I do appreciated your visit.
