Thanks a Latte with some Poppy Parade by Stampin Up and me

It's Friday!! It's Friday today.. Did I just mention it is Friday today..
  • Oh my .. I am so ready with this week.. I want to sleep in so badly tomorrow.. walk in my P.J's until it is 11 am and have a Chai Latter in a silent and clean home.. make some cards and listen to some classical music.. Hum... Now how do I talk my hubby into that one?
It's not that I had a bad week.. not at all.. It was good.. Really!
There was just so much going on.. + This morning I went with 4 of my friends to the Coffee and Scream cafe in Calgary.. or something like that. That place is a mad-house.. There were at least over 50 kids.. and they just screamed and played and made noises that were just to much for the inside of my head...
My kids had fun playing and climbing.. and probable also being loud..but I am not going near that place anytime soon.. That just tipped me right over the edge of what I could not handle on a morning. Now all I can think about is: How do I get those darn screams out of my head again.. They are still echoing in there.
Anyway.. I know there are way worse things in life and it is so not life threatening... so I shouldn't complain.. yes.. I shouldn't.. sigh..
I made this card Wednesday morning.. Again so simple.. It probable took me about 7 minutes..
  • I used the retired 'Thanks a Latte' stamp set from Stampin Up.. That one is such a keeper!
  • The card stock that I used is Poppy Parade, Whisper White and Early Espresso from Stampin Up.
  • + I used the 1 inch circle punch from Stampin Up. That one fitted so perfectly around those cute cups.. Love it!
  • + I used a very very retired DSP from Stampin Up.. This paper was probable retired about 7 years ago.. But as you can see it is still going strong. :)

Well.. that is it for today.

Have a beautiful weekend.. and who knows I might stop by your blog while I am sipping my Chai Latte in my PJ's Saturday morning :)

Inky hugs, Pauline


  1. Great card, Pauline!! Everything is classic about it. I haven't had time to post anything since earlier this week so I need to get myself into gear. I have company this weekend so I probably won't have time to post (create) until Sun. :( Enjoy your weekend and your latte!

  2. Hope you managed to talk to your hubby into waking up yesterday! Love your latte card!

  3. Hi Pauline!
    Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment! I just thought I'd come by and have a look at what you create.... there are a few I'm book marking to CASE at a later date! :)
    Thanks again,

  4. Pauline, this is great! I have this set but always seem to struggle to use it. You really made it shine with this card! Thanks for inspiring me to dust it off and give it a go! :)


Thanks so much for leaving your comment. Enjoy the rest of your day! Take care, Pauline
