Good afternoon and Happy December!
I made this card last night for a coffee swap using Newton Loves Coffee from Newton’s Nook and the new sketch at Sweet Sunday Sketch.
I used a newer paper pad from Basic Grey called Barista and colored Newton with copics. When deciding on the cup color, I went with red after all the controversy a few weeks ago over the Starbucks cups lol. I think it’s a nice pop of color with the mostly neutral color palette. For embellishment, I added a border die cut and a few sequins.
Here is the sketch~
I will be back later with another cat card and I am hoping to start a few other series tonight, one being the 25 Days of Christmas! We’ll see how much I can get done though.

When I was on vacation I made it a point to scrapbook a bit. My group had their 24 hour challenge (which I won!!) and I did two of the monthly challenges.
Here are all my pages~
The monthly sketch rotated using Nikki Sivils Tree Love. I dug deep in my stash for this stuff! I added some newer Thickers and a burlap leaf cut from some paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby a few months ago.
Tonight’s creation is a double pocket card. I joined a pocket card swap since I haven’t made one in ages. Instead of going with the fold I know, I decided to try something new. I found a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers for the double pocket card.
Thanks for stopping by!

I almost forgot to share this card! I made it on Wednesday afternoon for a transportation swap. The new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches sparked an idea and I went with it.
I stamped the yellow striped background with an MFT background stamp using my MISTI. It was so easy and probably the first time I got a really good impression from one of these stamps. I masked a circle on it so I could spotlight my bike that I stamped afterwards. I then cut that panel with a Dotted Die from Avery Elle. I added a strip of patterned paper, added the sentiment, and sprinkled some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
