Perfect Blend for Addicted to CAS

 Hi Everyone.  It's the weekend! 

I hope you are all warmer and survived the storms around the country and are enjoying your weekend.  I must admit, I found it amazing to see that there was snow on the ground in 49 out of 50 states!

It's the fabulous Deepti's turn to host our challenge at Addicted to CAS this week and she has a great code word.'

I know one thing, since Lou bought a cappuccino maker for me, I've  really been enjoying my two-three cups a day.  It's a wonderful thing that I can be on a conference call and have my cappuccino delivered to my desk!

In addition, our dear friends R&R are as appreciative of Starbucks as we are and have fond memories of sitting in their favorite Starbucks at New Year.

So, when I saw this challenge, I knew that I would be bringing out Perfect Blend.  Here's my card:

Perfect Blend

 Now, I bet you are wondering why I decided to add embossed watches and clocks to the background of the card.   Well, that's a really good question and it's all because I had this idea for a sentiment running around in my head.  All I needed was my trusty My Digital Studio and I was all set.

Here's the inside:


Now, I hope the embossed background makes sense :-)  This ones for you R&R. :-)

We hope that you will play along with us this week.  The winner of this week's challenge will be able to choose Digi's from our fabulous sponsor:

Now, that's worth playing along for, I think :-)
The design team have created some fabulous cards for your inspiration, so don't forget to pop along to their blogs and check out what they have created for you.
On a personal note:
I have been MIA this week.  It's been a long week at work and I was a little distracted by the Olympics.  Well, a lot distracted actually!   I have completely and utterly been glued to the TV watching Slopestyle.  Those guys are amazing!   I was very sad to see Plushenko have to pull out for the individual men's skating.  What a great athlete.  I have so enjoyed watching him skate.   However, he went out in a blaze of glory for the team event and has given so much to the sport and inspired so many, he deserves to be able to relax and enjoy his family :-)
Tonight, Lou and I celebrated Valentine's Day by attending a performance by the St Paul Chamber Orchestra.  Schubert, Prokofiev and Beethoven.  What a night.  It was enchanting and exhilerating.  We are back, will be having a glass of wine, and watching some Olympics!
I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.  Colleen, continued prayers for you.  Ruth Ann, thank you for thinking of Colleen.

Love your design Jaydee. Love of texture with your embossed background and embossed tag. The coffee looks perfect on the tag and what a fabulous wooden button to top it all off. Loll xx


Like the others, I love the connection between the embossed clocks and the sentiment. Great idea.

I agree about Plushenko. It would have been great to see him skate again.

Harriet Skelly

I love that coffee cup image with that sentiment and your sentiment inside is brilliant with the embossed background on front!



Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaase!!! . . . where can I purchase those beautiful stamps????

I can receive them in the USA or in Canada . . . I have contacts in both places.

For me, it's always a great time to have coffee, so I knew right away your embossed card had to mean It's Coffee Time! Love it! The skaters and skateboarders on the half pipe have gripped me too. I watched the Westminster Dog show and agility nights as well! Hope your work week eases up a bit. Nancy B


I've been an Olympics junkie--but, I'm sure you figured that. :oP It only comes around once every four years, you have to take advantage! :o)

In fact, I just watched the finish of the cross country relay and I'm beat just watching them go!

I love the card! Coffee with a good friend is priceless. :o)

My prayers for Colleen and for those who need a lift. This has been one long and cold winter.


P.S. Hi Lou! :o)

Ruth Ann Vincent

I could use a cup right now!
So glad you and Lou were able to get away and enjoy some wonderful music.
Prayers for Colleen and others that need hugs and encouragement.
I am anxious for warmer weather in you area, so I can see the flowers in the wet lands.

Fantastic card Jaydee! I just love your tag, the embossed layers, and clocks with the sentiment. This is truly perfection!

The Olympics have been addicting, but they are each time they roll around. I've loved the snowboarding and skiing especially. They make it look so easy!

Thinking of you with your work situation and wishing you a lovely week. Ruth Ann's comment about praying for each other was really nice. I always appreciate that you mention those needing a special lift in your closing and think it is unique and special. Blessings!

Such a great looking card Jaydee......perfect blend of everything.
If I have enough caffine, I could rule the world...............well, maybe not quite. we do drink our share of coffee here; several pots a day and now I hear that coffee is going to sky rocket in price :{

Thank you all for the special prayers and hugs. I so do appreciate each and every one of them. Doing well here. thank you.
Jaydee and Lou, enjoy your day and remainder of the week.


Your idea is brilliant. LOVE the embossing to go with the sentiment. I love the design xx
