Welcome to Hoot N’ Easy Friday : Featuring Merry Cafe Love

Welcome to my Hoot N’ Easy Friday Blog Feature!  Confused?  Yeah, me too! Actually, I have a new opportunity to bring you on Monday’s so I have moved my Hoot N’ Easy feature to Friday’s!  Friday should be a hoot and easy anyways, right?

Anyways, onto my feature for today!  The Merry Cafe Stamp Set from the 2017 Holiday Catalog and the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog Pair together to show some LOVE!  Some Merry Cafe Love!

My Quick N’ Easy card on the left is just that!  Quick N’ Easy means no fussy cutting with Paper Snips, No Big Shot Action and No Watercolor Techniques. Just a two pieces of cardstock, a paper trimmer, a couple stamps, ink pads and embellishments.  My Stepped-Up A Hoot! card on the right requires the Big Shot, a Paper Snips and a Watercolor Technique. (I just realized I need to photograph my cards to line-up with the title, next week they will be flipped….details, ha!)
