everyone should have one

what, you ask? why, a card editor! I wasn't happy with the card I made to be from me to my DH for Father's Day the other day and brought it into work for show-'n-tell w my scrappin' buddies. Kimmie suggested adding a touch of red - and here it is - based on Stamp Something's Sketch Something 0612 challenge. The red touches are Ruby Red base and matted main stamped image, and a red paper pieced coffee mug. Oh, and the red bling. I FINALLY used some DP I'd picked up last year with a coffee theme. I'd picked up the matching bling, ribbon and stickers too ... gotta use more of that stash soon. I used some lyrics from a Nat King Cole song - You're The Cream In My Coffee - for the inside sentiment. I'm listening to Nat right now on Jango - isn't modern technology wonderful?!

stamps: gel-à-tins' coffee break, CHF's Canvas backgrounder; paper: CI's Bohemia bungalow and coffee collections, SU's Ruby Red and The Paper Co's Kraft cardstocks; ink: StazOn Timber Brown; accessories: CI's Bohemia bling and ribbon

I often wish I had a card editor! This is lovely. I do like the red borders and the bling. Very nice.
