PIP Challenge 2308

 Our amazing sponsor this week is

Jan's Digi Stamps is kindly offering a
$10 Gift Certificate. Without our amazing
sponsors the challenges wouldn't happen.
Be sure to pop over and see all her amazing
sets and ideas! Such a talent! 

Here's my card,
JDS has an abundance of amazing digital art
and I can always find something I love to play
with! In this case, COFFEE!! Admittedly I am
addicted to McD's French vanilla iced coffee.
I printed the image and sentiment and some
digital background paper (from another company)
to create this easy card. I colored it with Copic
markers and cut the images out so I could 
raise them up with mounting tape. I added
a bit of sparkle pen to the little heart and a 
few dot elements. That was it. I think I am being
very lazy with my stamping because of being on
the beach for the past couple of months. The
winter weather in Florida has been exceptional.
I will be entering this card in the following

fabulous products they have! Get everything you
need in one place to create your next project!
 Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
Well, I certainly don't need a tutorial for
this simple card. I used  "On The Mend"
from LAWN FAWN. It is a cute set for someone
not quite up to par. I will be using this for 
a friend, here in Florida, that fell and broke
her knee cap and repaired following surgery.
I'm sure she will get a smile from it. I cut out
the turtle and colored him with Copic markers.
I used a random banner die cut for the 
sentiment. The splotches were made using
a stencil and inks. I lifted the image with 
some mounting tape to complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
