Inky Paws Challenge 59

Hello everyone!  I know it has been a while since I posted, I am still making cards, crocheting and knitting a whole lot, I just haven't been taking photos of all of my creations and posting them here for you.  One reason is my laptop that has Photoshop elements loaded on it (as well as Vista if you can believe it) isn't working anymore, and I don't want to spend another $100 for a new version that mostly likely will be obsolete again in a few months.  

I was making a birthday card for my dear friend Barbie who LOOOVES dogs and coffee, and when I was finished I realized I had used the colors in the current Inky Paws color challenge

Here is my card:

Labrador Birthday Coffee Card by Crafty Math Chick | Fetching Friendship and Newton Loves Coffee stamp sets by Newtons Nook Designs

I used one of my favorite NND sets, Fetching Friendship, along with Newton Loves Coffee and a Tim Holtz embossing folder, fussy cut them by hand and colored them with Copic markers.  I sure hope she likes it.  Am I the only one who finds it most difficult making cards for your husbands and closest friends?  Nothing seems 'good enough' you know?

Thanks so much for stopping by - I will try to find a free online photo editing program (PicMonkey has started charging a monthly fee that is more expensive that buying PE) so I can post more often.  I have a lot of crocheted, sewn and knitted projects to share with you too!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving American friends!

I just love seeing coffee-themed cards! The embossed background is a great touch with the puppy and his latte! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Inky Paws Challenge! Hope to see you again for our new challenge starting Monday!

Eeeee! You played along! So nice to see your card! That embossed background is super cute and I love how you paired the coffee with the dog! I guess Newton isn't the only one who loves coffee! Thanks for playing along!! :)
