Two Wednesday Posts - Oh My!

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for my La-La Land Weekly Wednesday Challenge post. Thanks!

If it's Wednesday, that means it's time for another fun challenge at Whimsical Wednesdays: The Diedrich Dare! I'm proud to be the hostess for this week's challenge, which is an inspiration piece by Jessica's DS Jack. (Check out what it says on the green mug... too funny!)

I took my cues from the two mugs and the colors. I absolutely ADORE the Early Bird DP by Cosmo Cricket. Paired with Warm Happiness by Papertrey Ink, this card came together quickly...which was a good thing since at the time I was suffering the after-effects of some pretty heavy dental work. All I could think was "get done, take drugs and lay down!"

I used a bit of dark brown Sparkly Fluff for the "cocoa," and some Bo Bunny ribbon to give my card a bit of zip. The paper piercing is inspired by the Stamping A Latte girl herself, Jodi Collins. I used the Stitch Doodle Dot Template from Taylored Expressions to fill in that empty space at the top of the card, and I LOVE how it turned out. My card also happens to follow this week's sketch at CPS. Have I mentioned lately that I love a good sketch?

Don't forget to check in on the rest of the Daredevils to see what they've cooked up for your viewing pleasure:

Before I go, I want to thank the good folks over at Our Daily Bread Designs Blog for featuring my card, Know That The Lord is God, as the "Customer of the Day Card." You have no idea how humbled and honored I am! To God be the Glory!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me twice today. Don't forget to HUG a veteran and say thanks!
