Dear Coffee ~

Saturday, April 11, 2015

When I started making this card it was still morning and I had a cup of coffee in my hand...now here it is half the day over, and I'm finally getting it posted :)

This is for the Sketch Saturday Challenge No. 356.

When I walked Bleeker this morning (another reason I didn't get this card done earlier), I not only stopped and smelled the roses, but I picked a couple too!  Don't worry, the HOA here is cool with it, haha!

My first shot at printing this digital came out too small, but I decided to use it anyway on the inside.

This is another online stamp purchase (I've been so bad lately) that I just received.  Between wine and coffee, it seems I just can't pass up cute stamps when I see them!

Here's the rest of the gals from this set of wine stamps that I picked up.

Again, not crazy about the quality.  Case in point is the sentiment.  I guess I just prefer solid lines, so I'm not sure if they are supposed to be like this or if I'm doing something wrong.  This was fun to color anyway!

Stamp Set - Michael's/Art Impressions
Card Base - Stampin' Up
DP - Scraps
Other Stuff - ProMarkers, pastel pencils, burlap string.
