Sugar Pea Designs - Life's a Beach


Hey there, Sugar Peeps!
I wanted to try my hand at this Sugar Sketch #10 once more...there are a few more days to get in on the action!


With summer quickly coming to a close, I had to ink up this adorable set again, too!  I love SeaSide Wishes  from the Sugar Snap Collection SO much, so I'll likely use it all through the year!  


The Fancy Pants Trendsetter collection was a great one to create a soft and subtle "cheer up" kind of card!  There are a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins scattered about to finish off the card.



Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops - Day 5

A Cup of Tea

Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hops

Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary 2014 Spotlight Hops! This month Verve is celebrating 7 wonderful years and our release is filled with all sorts of treats! All week long the Divas will be spotlighting new stamps and dies and each day there's a chance to win a $50 gift code to Verve just for commenting on our posts! So tune in each day for a new spotlight and a fresh chance to win. Everything previewed this week will be available for purchase in the Verve online store on Saturday 8/30.

My first card today features the new stamp set, One Cup, with coordinating dies, Cuppa Tea Die Set. There are a few sprinkles of the new Signature Sequin Mix and a fun pop of color with the Award Banner Trim Die.

I was inspired by the amazing Deconstructed Sketch #166 by my fellow Diva, Jen Shultz!

COFFEE - O Taste

For the second card in my post today, I combined the Coffee stamp set and coordinating Cuppa Joe Die Set with the Psalm 34:8 Plain Jane.  And...because I LOVE the new Signature Sequin Mix, I must add a few sprinkles to every card!

The Color Throwdown #307 was a bright and cheery one to use for this "pick me up" card!
