Thanks A Latte

Today is a wonderful challenge Blog Hop.  The teams at Your Next Stamp and Ribbon Carousel are hopping together, so please make sure you visit all of the blogs. 

Debra has provided us with a fun sketch to play with this week. 


I'm super excited that Your Next Stamp is this week's sponsor because I'm able to give you a little sneak peek at one of the newest images to be released.  And to see more, be sure to check out the YNS Blog tomorrow and participate in the April Release Blog Hop.




This little cutie is Latte Ellie.  Although I don't drink coffee of any sort (my caffeine comes in the form of a Sunkist soda every morning) I LOVE coffee images!  Totally weird, I know.  ;)  And I thought this new image would look cute paired with some new paper from Echo Park (Note to Self).  I swear I have more 6x6 paper pads than a person could ever possibly need or use, but I just can't help myself...it's my weakness and I'm okay with that! 

I used some yummilicious Ecru Crochet Trim that I then weaved Walnut Brown Vintage Seam Binding through.  Below is a video tutorial that I did awhile back showing how I do that.



Hopefully my creation has inspired to you play along with us this week at the Ribbon 
Carousel Challenge Blog.  Your creation can be anything you'd like, just be sure you use ribbon, bakers twine, lace, thread...(anything that comes on a spool).

And for the entire month of April you can get 25% off at the Ribbon Carousel




Thanks for stopping by today!!
