Inspired By... no. 4: kitchen LOve!

I'm back with a quick post for Inspired By ... no. 4: Kitchen Love!  How could anyone resist this:

I knew just the stamp set to reach for... Altenew Coffee Love! with an assist by Create a Smile's Coffee First - see if you can find the love... but first, a close-up - I've never used patterned paper for a card base!



I started to move my glasses, but then saw the gorgeous blue sky reflected in the lenses - what a delight it was to see today!

You are also delightful to see... any day!

You should use PP on your card bases more often, it looks good on you!! This is adorable. I like the way you've framed the cute images. I also like that you left your glasses in the photo. It's like seeing the card through your eyes!!

Subtle papers like that make wonderful backgrounds, Michele, especially when combined with striking images like your lovely coffee pot and cup.

How sweet is this! Love it! Perfect for Laurel's challenge too...that patterned paper is divine, but your big pot & cuppa really made me warm inside! Love your blue sky too!

Oh yes please, Michele ... how about I bring some croissants too?!! Such pretty PP, my friend ... and fabulous crisp images ... so inviting! Sorry I'm so behind that I'm rushing through to say hello ... so enjoyed seeing all your recent posts (that sweet slimey friend had me smiling!) though haven't had chance to stop and chat! Back to 'normal' from next week I hope! Hugs, Anita :)

This is so pretty, Michele! I never thought of using the Coffee Love stamps with light blue. (I tend to use them with darker colors.) I should try them with lighter colors next time. Thanks for the inspiration! Hideko :-)
