Let's Get Messy - Take 13

It's the 12th of August which means it's time for the Hot Mess Success group to post our cards. We've grown in numbers this month. What started as four of us is now six of us - Barb, Kelly, Terry, Carol, and Darlene plus me. The idea behind Hot Mess Success is to include something messy in the making of our cards. 

That stretches me - a lot! I do not typically like messes. And it shows, because the messes on the cards I make for this group really have minimal mess. For instance, this month I used two stencils (a circle and the Jaded Blossom Coffee Bean stencil) to blend coffee beans onto my card.

Be sure to check out the other Hot Mess gals blogs, too, to see their cards (you'll be WOW'd!)...

Jeanette your card is awesome. I love the way you stenciled the beans and I love your image. You did a great job on this card.

Barb said...

So Pretty! I love that you used two stencils and you know we all love coffee! Great Card!

What a fun card - can't go wrong with coffee! I had to look twice to see where the circle was - my eyeballs missed it completely but there it is, in all it's glory! Love the burst of orange!

I just love the warm, Fall feel to this card! Great job with the stencils too. I need to try this technique. A winning card for certain!

Beautifully colored and I love that doily in the back. Nicely done. TFS!

You really do avoid the 'mess' end of this challenge Jeanette, but this card is wonderful despite it :) I love that you do give it a go!
Stay safe
