A good day has both Coffee & You





I should be totally doing other things but as I type up this post (Friday am), I'm leaving for CHA in 4 hours.  I haven't finished packing or getting ready.  I wanted to whip together this card because I was so inspired by some challenges.


The coffee cup is from STAMPlorations' Sketchy Coffee Cups and the sentiment is Literary Caffeine-Ations.  Do you remember my earlier comment about using my paper collections?  Today's card uses Basic Grey's Highline collection.



I managed to combine the sketch and the colors from the inspiration photo...super lovin' those colors.  They are so fresh + fun!  We've been having some stereotypical dreary Northwest weather...lots of rain...so, I was more than happy to use these fun colors!

I tried to keep the overall design clean and simple so that I can also link up to STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge:


Big shout out to Toni, my IRL friend and we're in the same crafty group, she's on the new Design Team!

cardstock:  recollections/110/white
paper:  basic grey highline
stamps:  stamplorations sketchy cups/literary caffeine-ations
