Let's Party!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Readysetstamp’s 5 year anniversary blog hop! I'm helping
my friend Julie celebrate her 5 years of having fun paper crafting.
Today's hop is called ANYTHING GOES, that way
we can give you a variety of ideas.

For my project today, I did a remake of a favorite card I made
over a year ago. The idea first came from
Pinterest where I was seeing all of these layered
cards. I wanted to try my hand and this is what I created first....

I used a Cardztv stamp set for my sentiment and a cut
using my Cricut for the mug of coffee.

Today, I made a few changes.
I used a My Creative Time Die for the 
coffee cup, MCT sentiments inside and out,
and solid black twine from Trendy Twine.

Okay, on with the rest of the hop!

Here’s the lineup:



We can't have a blog anniversary without a give away right?
