You've Got Style Birthday Card

Well I'm back from holidays and am ready to dive back into the blogging world!
We had a great holiday in Toronto and Niagara Falls. Beautiful country but I am so glad to be home. Tourist season was in high gear and there were so many people! We took in a couple Blue Jays games, the main reason for going there and we even made the Friday night highlight reel on TSN! The first home run came right towards us! I literally froze in my seat thinking please don't come to me!! Haha! 
Blurry picture saved from my camera!!

That's us right in the front middle seats, thank goodness you couldn't see the horrified look on my face... I really didn't want to be on tv and when we watched the highlights, we were there! Like I told eveyone, if you didn't know it was us, you couldn't tell! Haha!

And then us watching the Saturday game.. I didn't want it to end! It was so much fun!! Love how the picture is reflected from the field onto the plexi glass. Too cool!

So when I arrived home, I was surprised with a belated birthday card from a friend from Ohio! She used the You've Got Style stamp set and even sent me a couple extra stamped images which was awesome since I don't own this stamp set!

Ain't she cute! I totally loved the way she wrapped the silver thread around the layer of cardstock! What a smart idea! 
Well that's it from me today. As many of you know I have been experiencing technical difficulties with my Blog. Today I called in after procrastinating for 6 weeks and boom! the girl knew exactly what was wrong! I am so dumb!! Well ok I called it computer illiterate.... same thing! 
Thanks for stopping by today. I have lots to share so please check back in soon!

August 1st Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to another fabulous month of the Blogging Friends Blog Hop!
If you are joining  me from Leanne's Blog or just starting here, sit back and relax and enjoy the awesome creations everyone have crafted!
This months theme is "Our Favorite Things" and I chose to create with the Coffee Cafe Suite. This was the first time I created with this bundle and I loved it! I even painted the coffee cups with real dried coffee and the result is heavenly! If you don't have dried coffee, Early Espresso ink will work just fine! It just won't smell like coffee.
I first stamped the coffee cups and band with Crumb Cake on Water Color Paper. I stamped the other images with Early Espresso. I painted the cups with dried coffee, each card will be different depending on the concentration of coffee and water used.

For the inside of the cards I tried the cool card fold called the Book Fold which causes the inside panels to pop off the page! Super cool! Of course I had to add cooffee beans to the inside of the cards, I loved how they turned out.

For the first two cards, I paired Early Espresso and Powder Pink together.I loved this color combo for something different.
The last card was paired with Early Espresso and Old Olive. I finished it off with the Copper Mesh Ribbon. I am almost at the end of the roll, so I can honestly say this is my favorite ribbon from the new catty!

I hope you feel inspired today with my creations. Please leave a comment below before clicking on my Blogging Friend Lorene's Blog.
