Just for Fun Friday

It is Just for Fun Friday and time for Color Challenge #15 at the Just for Fun Rubber Stamps blog!  Look at these great colors!  Doesn't it just inspire you to create something beautiful? 

Before you leave today, don't forget to check out all of our other Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Design Team creations for this challenge. Their links are listed in the sidebar at the left!

To start my project, I had some nifty-keen (yes, I said nifty-keen) plaid paper from My Mind's Eye, Life Stories that lent itself perfecto-ly to this challenge...so I pulled that out along with some of that really swell brand new Basic Grey Kraft paper that I stamped the coffee cup on in coffee ink.  Yum-O!  Then I added some ribbon, more stamps and and ink and by golly, this is what I got...



Now, truth be told, I don't even like coffee...GASP! (it smells great, but I just can't drink the stuff... I'm a Diet Pepsi kinda gal myself)...anywho...just 'cause I don't like coffee doesn't mean that I can't love you all a LATTE'...eh?  And ooo, do I ever... so much so in fact, that I am gonna let you in a little secret... if you pull out these colors (see above if you have forgotten already... I know I have... (grin)...,) dream up a crafty paper project and link it over at the Just for Fun Rubber Stamps blog...you could win a 25% discount at the online store!!  Yee Haww!!!.... well, okay, that wasn't really a secret at all, since I've been telling ya'll about it for WEEKS now... so, I wonder... what is keeping you from joining the challenge?  You don't need JFF stamps to play along...so go now... yes, NOW! :-)   Hmmm on second thought... hold on one second, so I can leave you with the fine print...

You are way toooo funny, Beth! So made me smile with your cute post today, and you always make me smile with your sweet comments on my blog. But to not like coffee???? GASP! Not sure I could go on without coffee. :) Do love Diet Pepsi, too, though. And love your fun card. All that kraft is so yummy and is such a perfect color for a coffee theme. And those papers truly are nifty keen.
