I have to tell you, I HATE MORNINGS! With a passion! I rarely feel human in the mornings unless I sleep about 10-12 hours and of course, I rarely get that whether because of my own insomnia or kids or things I have to do. So these mugs were perfect as an inspiration challenge! Rise and Whine-AMEN! Thanks Jack!
I made a card similar to this ages ago, I loved it so much I decided to make another similar one. Heather, I hope you have your glasses on! (Heather SAYS she is allergic to the colour brown, apparently, she has ‘glasses’ that help!)
It is a Z fold card. Start with an 11x5.5” piece of cardstock. You want to cut down one long edge on an angle so when folded, each section has an angled edge. I marked a point down about 2” on one short side. Connect the mark with the other top corner and cut. Score the paper in thirds and fold. Decorate as desired. You can choose to keep it as a Z (stands up really well on its own) or use adhesive and make pockets which I did.
You know the saying, ‘Necessity is the mother of invention’? Well I didn’t exactly invent anything but I did come up with an inventive way of making my ‘English Breakfast’ tag. I wanted ivory on chocolate but my ivory EP is no name and not very good quality nor very fine. So I used ivory paper, CLEAR embossed the image and sponged on the chocolate ink! Works great! The other tag is coloured in with pencil crayons. I have no idea what a tea plant looks like (shoulda Googled it!) so no comments if it is wrong-chances are it is! The silk puff flower was made using the directions at Studio Calico-Fabric Flowers except I didn’t use an iron at any stage. Because I didn’t I needed to sew the center down with a few stitches. So worth it.
So, are you inspired to play along with this week’s challenge? I sure hope so. If not quite yet, I’m sure you will be by the time you finish checking out all the the DareDevil’s blogs!
