Friday Store Fronts

Did you notice the new tab for 'Tutorials" just under my blog header?  Well, the first  tutorial is posted in there and todays post is showing some cards made using this information.

I am really loving these store fronts and based on how fast my wonderful fellow nurses at work are buying them from me, I think they are pretty popular with them also!

I mentioned these 'store fronts' to Heather over at Fresh Brewed Designs and the very next day she emails me with the most wonderful coffee shop digis!  Now who could ask for a better friend than that!  LOL

I couldn't wait to play with them and had a card done just a few hours later.

Well, what do you think?  How about that jar of chocolate covered spoons?  Or the bag of coffee beans!  I just love them all!

Coloring:  Copics
Sentiment:  Our Craft Lounge
Die cuts:  Spellbinders, CC designs, SU word window
Everything else from my stash.

Then I got to thinking about the cake digis that Heather released last week.  Wouldn't they make a great bake shop (Great sweetest person birthday card)!

Don't these make for a wonderful bake shop!  Really fun to color also!

Sentiment:  Beyond the Fringe
Die Cuts:  Spellbinders, Memory Box, SU word window
All papers and bling:  scraps from my stash

Finally, I got to thinking about all the digis that Heather has done that include coffee, tea or little cupcakes.  There are alot of them!  Using my crop tool, I was able to pick out the pieces that I wanted to use and TaDa!  I had another store front, all ready to go!

Even the sentiment is pieces of 2 of Heathers winter sentiments, pieced together!  LOL
