Coffee and Friends

Hi there! Today will be a busy day for me. I am headed to town to visit my Mom and we have tons of errands to run. David is busy getting ready for his "big' fishing trip with the guys. With all of the new airline rules regarding bags, he has had to pack and unpack and re-pack to make it all work.

While he is gone, I will be getting class kits ready and packing a bag of my own to head up north and teach. I leave the day he gets home. We will be like two ships that pass in the night!

Today's card is one I made for Vicki's color challenge (STVCC28)over on StampTV. She choose black, pink, gray and white. I was surprised to find I didn't really have any gray cardstock. I did have this pretty satin ribbon and this floral scrap of cardstock from Luxe.

I stamped the coffee cup from Gina K's Signs of Autumn set once on the white background and again on the backside of the lightest pink Bazzill bling cardstock that I was using. I overstamped the pink coffee cup with the little swirl from Carolyn King's Whimsical Autumn set, cut it out and paper pieced to the image on the white panel. I then colored the saucer and cup with R81 and R85 Copic markers to add some dimension.

I am really enjoying fixing up the inside of my cards also. For this card, I layered a piece of black cardstock and another scrap of the flowered cs to the inside base of the card. The sentiment is from Gina K's Thanks a Million set and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I have a friend who loves coffee drinks so I am going to send this to her. Her kids have just started back to school, so I am hoping she will take a moment for herself and enjoy a good cup of joe.

I'll be back in a couple of days with a sneak peek of the cards I will be teaching at Green Tangerines in Rocklin, CA.

Have a great day,
