Starbucks Kelly

Good morning my friends.  I hope you are having a great weekend. It's a beautiful day here in H Town so welcome after all the rain we have had this past week. Blah!  Not much going on. Petunia is still being a sassy girl and it looks like she may be a permanent fixture in our home. I'm thinking of calling her Zelda! She's such a fierce warrior when we're playing with her bird on a string toy. She doesn't particularly like to be picked up, but neither do my boys, but I think there's hope for her to become a sweet girl.

Well, on to my blogpost. I belong to a group on Splitcoast Stampers called the Creative Card Chicks. We have a monthly challenge where each hostess sends a card kit to the rest of the group.  The kit must include images, dp, and any embellishments you want to add. We can add anything we like from our own stash. This month our hostess was Jeanette (Forest Ranger). I loved her kit and knew what I wanted to do from the start. I think this is the first time EVER that I had my card done way before time to post it. One of our group LOVES Starbucks. She has to have her fix every day in order to keep up with her active brood. So, I called this Starbucks Kelly!

  • Image - Unity - Dream of Being
  • Sentiment - Unity - Dream of Being
  • Cardstock -Recollections  Kraft and 110# White; Stampin Up Garden Green
