A Yawn is a Scream for....

COFFEE!! Well, it is for me early in the morning!! AND... everyone knows I love me some STRONG coffee!!

So this is the week for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop...
 Here's my first card... I had the stamping time to make two today... WHOO HOO (that is unusual for me these days).



Played with some Verve, MFT, and Altenew for this card. The base is an A2 card and then, I die cut two Inside/Out Stitched Rectangles from MFT. On the larger one, I used Altenew's Watercolor Stencil and sponged blue ink. Then, I stamped the sentiment from Verve's Get Together on the smaller panel. The coffee cups are Verve's Coffee set and die-cut with the coordinating dies. "Coffee" was die-cut three times for a little dimension. 

Isn't this a fun card!!!

I used the Fusion challenge for inspiration... sketch and colors!!!

Getting in the July 4th spirit a little early... hopefully we'll make it out to the lake but, Hubs doesn't know,  and I am thinking long WE and the kitchen needs painted :-) We, well, actually Bill and Maddie removed all the old wallpaper but, we need to spakcle, sand, and paint. Haven't been able to find anyone willing to do the work. 

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