Another Jess' College Fund Digi Card!

Hi folks ,


If you are here for my Yumi & Fumi Handmade "Battle Hop" post please click through or scroll down to the previous post. Trust me - even if you AREN'T here for that post, you should go check it out!


Well, it's a Saturday morning and, as usual, I was up before 5 am thanks to the fur-babies. It was too early (and dark) to tackle the remaining autumn yard work so rather than doze on the daybed like I usually do, I decided to hit the craft room for a little colouring time.

It was rather enjoyable to colour "just because". I really don't have anyone in mind for this card, I just wanted to colour up this new image from Jess' College Fund. There is a fantastic challenge going on at her blog to introduce this collection of stamps - you really should check it out!

Did you  notice the words etched into the button? I was digging through my newly acquired buttons (as if I don't have too many already) and thought that this one was just perfect to pair with this image.

card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, kraft card stock base and mats
  • patterned papers: Basic Grey "Sweet Threads"
  • digital image: Jess' College Fund "Jess Coffee Time", coloured with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E93, E04, E21, E23, E25, E27, E40, E41, E42, R01, R02, R05, R08, YG91, YG93)
  • sentiment: Verve "Joyful Blooms", stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa with CTMH Taffy Ink sponged on the sentiment panel

additional challenges for this card:

As always, thanks for stopping by! The sun is up now and it's all of 6 degrees Celsius, heading for a balmy high of 10. Brrr. Have to get that yard work done!

LOL Everything was on your desk?? EVERYTHING?? lol! you must have a big desk!! But I'm glad you do because this card is super fabulous! The image is great! I love that it's a more mature image, perfect for an older teen or early 20's young lady! The sketch you used is great and everything looks fantastic!
