Artsy Leaves for Addicted to CAS Challenge # 94
Fairy Dust Shaker

Le Cafe for Paper Players #309

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday.


It's the fabulous Sandy's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a CAS theme challenge for us:


Something sweet had me flummoxed for a little while as I don't have a lot of "sweet" themed stamp sets.  I thought I could cover it in a sentiment like "you are so sweet"... but realized I had a coffee themed set from Fun Stampers Journey that included croissant and, as chocolate croissants are one of Lou's favorites, I realized that I could take the croissant stamp from that set and use it as my "sweet" element.

I took a piece of Recollections #110 card stock and stamped the croissant image with Crumb Cake ink and covered the entire piece of card stock.  I then colored them with Copic markers.  Once I had done that, I stamped the coffee pot image, fussy cut it (including around the inside of the handle) and covered the coffee pot with Crystal Accents to make it nice and shiny.

Here's a closeup of the shiny coffee pot:

I hope you will play along with Sandy's sweet challenge this week!  If you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than our fabulous design team:

On a personal note:

Today's post is short as I am working today and that means I won't get into my craft room to do any crafting either!  I'll leave you with a photo, though and be back on Tuesday.

My favorite little bird:

Mmmmm croissants! Adorable card!


Jaydee I love this!!! Coffee and croissants, yumm. What an awesome background you've created. I love everything about this card.


What a sweet card. For me, looks like breakfast is ready :}
Croissants are good any time of day; filled with just about anything your little heart desires, peanut butter cup, cinnamon and sugar, apple quarter, filled with jam, or wrapped around a hot dog. Having them plain are also good.
Love your cute bird photo. Looks like he's peeking around saying; 'hurry, take my picture so I can get back to eating.'
Enjoy your day

Love your croissant background Jaydee! I thought at first they were flowers until I looked more closely - so unusual, I've never seen a croissant stamp before! Great with the shiny coffee pot too for a lazy breakfast that is oh so sweet!


That croissant background makes me hungry!Your shiny coffee pot looks awesome,too.

Cute lil feathered friend you have there!
