Dear friend

Good morning!  I'm have a card and some exciting news from Clearly Digi Stamps...not only is today a new release, but it also opening day of the new store!  Woo hoo...I can't wait to check it out!  I hope you will check it out too, along with the new creations the DT have designed to inspire you.

Today I am working with a new set called Coffee Cup Greetings.  The set includes line art, pre-colored images, sentiments, and DP.  I used a line art image, as I thought this cup would be so fun to paper piece....  It was tricky detail cutting!  Love that!  I pulled out some papers that I thought coordinated perfectly and I also used some bling from my stash that I have been hoarding.  Sometimes I really have a hard time using the stuff that is "extra pretty"!  Does anyone else have that problem?  I simply had to make myself do it!  (I even used one of the gems on the "dot" the "i".)  The sentiment is tied onto the cup handle with twine.

For the next month, Clearly Digi Stamps will be giving away free digis on Thursdays and Sundays.  Click here to see the current offering!

Image/Sentiment: Clearly Digi Stamps "Coffee Cup Greetings"
Ink: Printer, SU! Black Marker
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Little Yellow Bicycle DP
