a blog hop that's just rite

Good morning! Taylor asked the Baker's Dozen if we would be interested in doing a Just Rite blog hop for Taylored Expressions and I jumped at the chance to try out these new stamps! For my stop along the blog hop today, I'm using the set, A Little Caffeine. These stamps are circular and come with different borders and centers, so you can change around the look of each stamp. Pretty cool! I stamped the border in Chocolate Chip ink and then used a circle Nestabilities nested inside a circle scallop Nestabilities and made a frame to pop up. The center is stamped in Versamark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder - I stamped the image again to make my pink mug and then embossed it also. I dove into my Savannah Bag-O-Buttons and grabbed 3 different chocolate buttons to add to the corner of the card and then finished it by adding the chocolate grosgrain ribbon.

Now, hop along to the other players in today's Just Rite blog hop - you won't be disappointed!
