My secret...

Sooooo everyone is always wondering how I do so much...  How can I have a full time job, 4 kids and manage to craft....  Of course part of the explanation is my wonderful husband!  But there's another secret...

I haven't announced it on my blog yet because it wasn't  announced all over work yet... but I got a promotion this week.  I'm now a Finance Director... so yeah... pretty busy with work and everything else.  So what's my secret beside the fact that crafting keeps me sane?!?  When I saw this digi from Create with TLC, I thought this is it!  I can show them!!!!  Are you curious yet?!?

Yup... that's right... it's COFFEE!!!!!!  Looooots of wonderful coffee :D  I decided to make this a vintage card.  I used some paper from Le p'tit blog by Toga.  I used some die cut from Cuttlebug to make the corner die cuts.

I colored this image with vintage photo ink.  That's all that it really needed.  And it matched the color of coffee :D

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Aud sentiments challenge blog - Something funny ( I think this sentiment is pretty funny don't you?!?)
  2. Scrappers-delights-challenge-blog - Distress
  3. Delightful sketches - Distressed
  4. The secret crafter saturday challenge - Distress ( this is their last challenge... :( )
So what do you think of my secret?!? :D  Have a wonderful Sunday night.  I'm off to comment on the wonderful cards that you have made and entered in the challenges where I'm a DT.

See you tomorrow!!!!




  1. As I was going down the list of blogs I follow I saw you posted sooo many cards today. I had that exact question on my mind. How can you do this? I didn't even know you had 4 kids. Guess I know how now. So many beautiful cards today. Forgive me for not getting to everyone of them but I don't drink coffee. Bunches of hugs, Robin

  2. LOL I hate coffee... so that won't work for me :p And getting up at 4 am doesn't help either I guess LOL Congrats!!! on your promotion!! That is awesome news!!! And I LOVE your card :)

  3. Congratulations! Sounds like you will need the coffee to keep up with everything. Love those photo corners.

  4. Congrats on your promotion! I am still amazed at the amount of crafting you get done with your busy schedule. Most of my time is spent sewing and designing. I try to squeeze in a couple of cards a week if I'm lucky.

  5. Love the paper and die cuts you used with this image! :^) And congratulations on your promotion! :^)
    Hugs, Penny

  6. So that's how you do it..I think that may be my problem because I don't drink coffee. I may have to start...How have I gone 60 years I love your card. Those corner dies are wonderful...You will have to give me more info on them....And congrats on your promotion...
