Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

          Howdy all! I am here today to share a card I made using a super cute digi image from Craftin Desert Divas called Coffee Cup Mouse. I absolutely love coffee so when I saw this my mind started going crazy with all the things I wanted to do and stamp sets I wanted to combine, sadly I couldn't do everything that I wanted or else this card would have been one hot mess, lol! However, I ended up pairing it with some of my most favorite Craftin Desert Divas stamp sets called Thankful Squeaks and Lovies. I of course had to jazz my card up with some sparkly goodness so I used Wink of Stella on my coffee cup and the eyes of that adorable mouse as well as inside on the sentiment. I was also super blessed to receive the new Rose Gold Embossing Powder from Simon Says Stamp which went perfectly with the colors on my card so I used that to emboss the sentiment seen on the front of the card.
          That pretty much wraps up my card but before I finish up I wanted to remind you about all the fun things happening at Craftin Desert Divas during the month of April. Starting April 1st Craftin Desert Divas will be starting a new Monthly Digi Challenge. The theme will is "Welcome Spring", so we would love to have you join us, and by doing so you could have the chance to win a $10 code to use in the CDD Shop! Anytime during the month of April just click here to be taken to the CDD Facebook Gallery where you can find out further details and upload your entry. You can also find the weekly free digital stamp over at the CDD Shop in which you could use for the challenge as long as it fits the theme. Isn't that awesome! Craftin Desert Diva's will be having their "Linky Parties" as well, which you can find all that information in the CDD Facebook Gallery too. Then starting on April 4th they will be starting Sneak Peeks of the April Release which you can click here for all the Release details.
