I Plan to Carpe Diem after Carpe Coffee

I recently made this card for a friend and now, I can totally relate as I sew want a cup of coffee - the kitties got on the counter and shattered my coffee pot and until I get out and get another pot (MEMO to self, go shopping immediately, if not sooner) there will be no coffee this morning until I get to the store or McDonald's!!!!

ok, granted my hair isn't long enuf for curlers but trust me this is one harried crafter at this moment!!!!

  • card is size A2 using Recollection cardstock and scraps for background - don't you just love the coffee bean paper??
  • Alicia Bel Coffee and Good Morning was colored using Whisper Strokes and Copic Markers along with Prisma Colored Pencils complete with gel pen accents and of course the Stickles Fairy stopping by to pay a visit!
  • image has rounded corners and chalked around the edges
  • Darice organza with satin edged ribbon tied in a bow with a heart-shaped button and cup with spoon button are from my stash
  • sentiment, "I plan to CARPE DIEM right after I CARPE COFFEE", had been from a recent Create with TLC club is chalked around the edges and mounted on matching coffee bean paper
