I know it’s been awhile since my last post. I am finally getting back to crafting slowly after the holidays and a terrible cold. I am finally on the mend. Here are a couple of cards created using some digi flowers from a flash Prize I won from a2z scrapbooking during the Winter Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop. Anyone who knows me knows that I love coffee to drink and coffee art. So even though the Prize I chose are flowers, another favorite of mine, I still created a coffee card by adding a flower design. The second one is a card using just flowers. On with the designs.
This is the first time I used a digi stamp. I can tell it won’t be the last. You can adjust the sizes and print off as many as you like. I have several at the ready for some coloring to use on future projects. I just love the whimsical designs.
The flowers on both cards were first colored then fussy cut

No challenge entries just having fun with some new supplies and playing with the digi stamps. But I do recommend checking out the Coffee Lovers Blog as there is always something fun going on and so much great coffee, tea and cocoa inspiration and you should absolutely check out what a2z scrapbooking site too. They gave some great products, challenge and fun inspiration.
Thanks so much for stopping by and as always I appreciate your kind comments.
Enjoy and Happy Crafting ~ Pat
