I started with a Crumb Cake base and stamped the beans in Crumb Cake also. I drew the center line with a Crumb Cake Marker. I stamped the coffee pot and mugs in Early Espresso~had to use that color on this card somewhere, and colored inside the lines with a Crumb Cake Marker. I colored the cups with Pear Pizzazz, Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo Markers.
I used the brand new Gingham Garden DSP again on this card. Is it not the most darling paper eva? I added a Whisper White border around the tablecloth using the Scallop Trim Border Punch. I added a double scallop frame around the coffee pot using the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch in Daffodil Delight and the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch in Melon Mambo. I used the 1 3/4" Circle Punch for the coffee pot. I added a Mambo heart punched with the Owl Builder Punch and dotted the Daffodil scallop with a White Gel Pen. I attached it with Dimensionals.
I'm not a huge fan of the wheels, but I did use the Take A Sip Wheel for the border along the bottom of the envelope and managed to get it straight and inked evenly! This was such a fun card to make and hope you like how it turned out as much as I did. Thanks so much for stopping by!

I have a confession for you. I've been a grandma for 7 years and have never had any pictures of my grandkids on me-gasp, I know...the horror! But now, thanks to My Paper Pumpkin, I do! I'm going to be the most obnoxious grandma out there now:)
I hope you enjoyed a trip through my little brag book, and I hope you'll consider signing up for My Paper Pumpkin to get your very own mini escape every month.

Finally, I added some Stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight, Basic Grey and Pacific Point. The green in the DSP is Lucky Limeade, but I've got all my Lucky Limeade pulled for my Retirement Party on Tuesday, so I used Old Olive instead-works just as well.

I got my inspiration for this card from Linda Aarhus. You can see her card at www.polkadotsand paper.com. You'll have to go back a few posts, but you won't mind-she does beautiful work! She used the Delightful Dozen stamp set on her card, so you may be able to find it that way also. I started with a Very Vanilla base and added a layer of Pool Party Cardstock. You'll notice I used some new products!!! I used the Epic Day This & That DSP and brand new Washi Tape-fun stuff! I also used the Remember This & That Rotary Stamp for the stamped date-so much fun!
I used the set Best Dad Ever one last time before it goes away:( I masked off the ties with scotch tape and stamped each one in a different color. I used Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral and Basic Grey-all colors in the collection. I cut each one out leaving a long tail at the top and tapered it to look like the end of a tie. I folded the tie over and stamped on the inside as well. I hung them over the Hung Up Cute Clip and secured them with Glue Dots. I thought I could pass on the Clips, but when I saw this card, I knew I had to have them.
I'm also posting the selections for this month's 'Kits/Card To Go'. There are 9 to choose from. See the right hand side of my home page for the prices. Pick any 4 cards and email your choices to me at email@example.com. The number for each card will be ABOVE it:
Okay, there's your choices. Please email me with your selections by Sunday, May 5th. Thanks so much for stopping by! Stay warm-brother!

I used the Big Shot and Petite Purse Die to make the little bag. I cut the flap off and glued the purse together using Liquid Tombow Glue. I used Crumb Cake Cardstock and Taffeta Ribbon as I did for the invitation. I also used the Flower Trim, White Tea Lace Doilies and Basic Pearls. As with the invitation, I had to use some contraband for the pennnant to get the right shade of blue. I stamped it with Marina Mist and cut it out with the Hearts A Flutter Framelits.

The Seriously Kit came with 3 sentiments, a Cherry Cobbler Spot, 4 Silver Buttons, Twine, stickers, envelopes and really cool cardstock thats printed on the front and back, but white on the inside. I added a piece of More Mustard (snif...) DSP from the Paper Stack and layered it underneath the bubble. I put the stickers on at an angle to add a little more interest.
I made this card just like the sample provided, and it's super cute as is. What I really love about MPP is that you can easily add an element or change it a bit and get several different designs from one kit. And I REALLY love that everyhting is all cut, prepped and ready to go!
