How I make cold brew coffee at home

   I love Cold brew coffee... There I said it...
   I am a sucker for stopping in at Caribou or my local small town shop for a cup of icy heaven. I could easily spend $20+ a week if I got this as often as I wanted. Well I would rather spend my money on crafty items than on something consumable.
   A few weeks ago I searched the web for ideas on how to make my own at home and this is what I have come up with...



Supplies:
Your favorite coffee grounds (slightly coarse tends to work better)
Strainer
coffee filters
Water
Container to hold grounds and water while brewing
Container to hold finished brew
coffee flavorings of choice

Place 1/2 cup coffee in container (I used a Quart mason jar)
Add 3-4 cups of water (I fill the jar to the top)
let sit for 24 hours
Strain grounds
Enjoy!

Fathers Day Card for my Hubby...

Hi all... Today I finished up a card that was a really hard one for me in many ways. I am not great at scene building so it was really out of my comfort zone. I hope you agree it turned out pretty cute.


Here are the Riley Moose images I colored as part of The 30 day Color Challenge



Here are some of the supplies I used...


FYI this is larger than a standard A2 card. It actually came out a wonky size because I was not paying attention :) I think it is 5 1/2 x 6 1/2. I will need to make a custom envelope but that it easy.

If you have any questions about how I made the card let me know. It was basically all ink blending except the water which I used a water pen from Jane Davenport. Then covered with the Judikins Diamond Glaze.

Conquering my fear!!!

  So I have posted many videos on my YouTube using my Brother Scan N Cut but for some silly reason I have been terrified to cut vinyl.... I don't know why... It has just been one of those things.
   This past weekend at the Stamp and Scrapbook expo there was a booth called Crafter Depot. They were selling tons of vinyl and accessories. I decided to invest in some Heat transfer vinyl and get some of the transfer tape needed for the sticky back kind (already had a bit of that.
  Today I finally put into use all I had learned from all the MANY you tube videos I have watched.
  
And...........

Success!!!



 I just love it! Now to try some more designs...  Stay tuned!
