Coffee Time with TLC


I hope that you are having a FAB Thursday!  The sun is shining here in Michigan and we are expecting temps in the high 50s.  If you live in Michigan that is a real treat!  :-)

I want to share with you a creation I did for Create with TLC using a new set Paulette just came out with called "Take time to."  You can pick it up in the store today!  I think this is a neat reminder to get off the rollercoaster of everyday hectic living and do something for YOU.  When was the last time you did something for yourself?  I purchased a pair of strappy pink suede shoes (see last pic).

Here's my creation using the "Coffee Time" image from the new set.

Gate Fold Gift Box
Gate Fold Gift Box 2

I created this box, which I call a Gate Fold Gift Box after recieving a similar card in the mail last Christmas.  I will have to write a tutorial on how I did it when I get a moment.  It is so versatile and makes for a great gift giving box.  I started out with white cardstock and then layered on some SU blue cardstock.  I used a sheet of paper from one of MME 6x6 paperpacks.  I cut a eyelet circle out on brown cardstock using Spellbinder's die.  I used my Copic markers to color the image and to add a blue highlight around the image.

Don't forget that the TLC Vintage Fashion Show blog hop is coming up in 3 days!  Make sure you join in the fun, because lots of great freebies will be up for grabs. :-)

Oh, I almost forgot to show you a pic of my pink strappy shoes that I got for $5 (regular $40)!!!  Woot Woot! lol  They are really comfortable too. *smile*

My pink strappy suede shoes!
