My 3 loves...

You can't keep a crafter down with the flu! I was feeling a lot better today and felt the urge to play. Here is a card I came up with. Hope you like!

I like how this came out. Can't take credit for some the ideas. One of my fellow DT gals did the chocolate kiss in foil and I loved the I lifted! I got the idea for the ribbon coming up and down I think on Pinterest....don't remember. I just thought it was cute so I lifted that!

If you look closely you can see I punched a hole above and below the sentiment. I then threaded the ribbon in and out and tied in a bow on the front. 

 Now tell me, who doesn't love chocolate, coffee, and crafts?! No one I know, Aren't these dies from My Creative Time just the best? They are so perfect, and I go to them all the time!

The stamp is perfect! I picked it first, then set out to find stamps and dies that would go good with it. The new chocolate die and the coffee cup die are just perfect. I love that foil affect with a bit of the brown peeking out.'s what I used.

So, there you have it. Hope I gave you some ideas...even though I lifted a few....get your supplies out now, and give some of them a try...putting your own spin on it!
