This GIRL runs on Coffee!!

OK... my life revolves around coffee... at least in the early morning... with me? Used to be an all day thing but, the doctor cut me to 4 cups (that's dietician cups/measuring cups) a day.

So... when Verve released this coffee die... how could I resist?

 TOO MUCH FUN... The Coffee die was cut three times and layered for dimension. Used the Verve inspiration pic and Viva la Verve sketch from week #3....


 The sketch...
I used the colors and the images from Peaceful Medallions reminded me of the sunflowers. The sentiment {dear to my heart} is from Verve's Coffee.

Also playing in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge... Anything Goes!

AND playing in the coffee lovers blog hop!! Can't believe I almost missed this.... have been hiding under a rock or work or ......
I am known for loving my coffee... interesting fact... I like it black with cream-real cream!! Over the years so many people have bought me the fancy flavored coffees (sweet thought every time) without realizing that it's the fairly "straight up" stuff I like. My fav is Starbucks- the really strong ones, Verona and Sumatra- every day of the week- first thing in the morning is to start the coffee maker so it's ready before I walk out the door. One year I splurged on Blue Mountain coffee- not sure if it's around now or not for my Christmas stocking and it was very smooth but, not very strong.

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
