Dear Coffee ~

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.

I like Big Cups...

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!

More Glasses ~

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!

Wine a little, you'll feel better ~


I need more stamps like a hole in my head, but I just so happened to walk down the stamp aisle at Michael's and saw that they were 40% off...I was good, I only purchased this one set that is all about wine and the funny ladies cracked me up. I am going to say that I am not exactly over the moon about the quality of it, so I'll just put that out there.  I did my best to get some good solid lines, but this is the best I could do.  The inside message is stamped with the title of the post!

Stamps - Art Impressions (No name on it).
Card Base-Stampin' Up
DP - (Vintage) Close to My Heart/Chantilly
Other Stuff - ProMarkers, pastel pencils, burlap string, glitter gems, corner rounder, Wink of Stella glitter (earrings & shoes), butterfly punch.
