It’s that time of year again! The Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop kicks off today. Yay!
The worst part of summer? Summer colds!! What could cheer one up more than an hot cuppa coffee or tea,a yummy short stack and some sunny summer flowers in bed?!!
I thing that Breakfast in Bed tray die from SugarPea Designs is genius! Their current challenge is Mix It Up:
I faded the red to pink and used lots of circles – plus the roses on the ‘bedspread’ reminded me of those roses. Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge is to use patterned paper: I had started off with some chevron paper from Fancy Pants Design as I was going to make a quilt to cover the bed. (More on that in a minute). For the paper-pieced items on the tray I had to place a couple of pieces together with scotch tape and then die-cut. You don’t notice the seam unless you look close.
Unfortunately, the quilt didn’t look right… the tray kind of got lost on it. Well, when you think about it – who has dishes that match their bedspread?!! lol! So I chose a muted floral pattern for my bedspread. The wood paneled walls are made from the packaging of the Fancy Pants ephemera and buttons sets… They outta make that pattern into cardstock, I love it!! The pillow and tissues are made from a real Puffs tissue.
