Quarantine Day 56

Hello again!  I'm back with a coffee-themed card! This week I've been inspired by the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. There are already over 900 link-ups and the hop is going on until Friday!  Wow, that's a lot of amazing inspiration!  Thank you to Amy and her team for this fun hop!


I was going for some humour with this card, but it's more like the story of  my life at this time, haha!  I used a fun pre-coloured image from Free Dearie Dolls and I fussy-cut so I could pop her up on foam tape.  Behind the girl is a beautiful mandala designed by Mia at Craftartista.  This one is Mandala 8  - it's a free image and she has other free mandalas as well (thank you!).  I printed this one in grey ink and fussy-cut so it would look like a doily.  Mia is having a 3rd Blogaversary Celebration and I am pleased to participate. Congratulations, Mia!


Continuing on with my card, I created the Quarantine Diary title in Word.  I fussy-cut a fun sentiment from Taylored Expressions, which was a freebie at one point (thank you!).  I made the vertical word Coffee with digital Scrabble tiles. The background paper is from Echo Park, and I finished the card by adding some puffy stickers (pencil, coffee cup, and clock).  

I would also like to support the following challenges:  A Bit More Time to Craft AG UE; A Bit More Time to Craft Extra AG UE; Crafting Happiness AG Optional Red UE; Crafty Catz 507 Spots and/or Stripes 2/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper May UE; Double Trouble 57 Week 2 Brown Bag-It Day and Red (Thing1 Kraft, Thing2 Crafting Happiness Challenge, Thing3 Red) 3/4; Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday Make it Feminine 1/3; Show Us Your Pussycats 54 Furrything Goes UE; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 2/5; Through the Craft Room Door AG 1/2; Wednesday's Creative Inspirations Fabulously Feminine UE; Word Art Wednesday 440-441 AG w Uplifting Sentiment 2/5 wk2



Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

I didn't have this image in my Dearie Dolls Collection so I was so glad to see it was still available. Such a cute card.

Oh my, love that sentiment, and it relates to me at least one or two times a week and I'm not ashamed. I worked at home for the last eight years before my retirement, woke at 5:30 am, bathed/dressed and off to my desk; but after retirement my regimen changed. Adorable and fun card. Thanks again for sharing your card with us at Double Trouble and Crafting Happiness.

Oh Kitty, what a beautiful and funny card! I love the cute doll in pajamas and what a creative idea to use my mandala as a doily! Thank you so much, my dear friend, for participating in my blogaversary. I send you many kisses and a BIG hug!

Super cute! Yes, it does reflect on our current situation, but we will get through this and it's great to have art that reflects this time in our lives. Love it!
