Clean and Graphic

The sketch this week from 2 Sketches 4 You:

The inspiration challenge from Paper Crafts (makes me think of the librarian at my elementary school when I was a kid)


I also incorporated The Pink Elephant challenge - pocket.  I got this fantastic Library Card Set from The Cutting Cafe and went right to work, I love this set - it also gave me an excuse to use my new PTI papers, :).  I have also used the Got Coffee set another fav of mine - even though I'm not a coffee drinker!

While I still had the scraps on my desk I decided to use this weeks Card Patterns sketch:

I used my Schlosser Designs Hexagon-A-Thon stamp along with Hey Cupcake (the frame and sentiment).  I think this also fits the Clean and Graphic challenge at Moxie Fab.

Great cards! Love the colour combo on these! I think it is so funny that you have so much coffee related stuff and you (like me) don't even drink it!! I love the aroma though, how about you? It think it is a homey feel since my parents always drank it. :)

These are super yummy papers!!! I love how pretty and soft they are. Both cards are terrific....love the coffee cups and "beans".
The second is spot on for the sketch!
Blessings,
