enjoy



Hello!  I hope you had a great weekend!  I know that I did!  I have a fun card to share today:


I finally inked up the Mint Owl Studio - Coffee Craze that I picked up from Butterfly Reflections Ink!  Isn't that chunky mug ---> awesome?!  I colored it with my Peerless watercolors.  I added some black dotting for a bit of contrast and topped it off with a Create a Smile Enjoy chippie!

Here's a bit of a twist on my card, that polka panel is actually a 'cozy'.  It slips off to be able to see the entire card. 


I used the Reverse Confetti Edgers Confetti Cuts to get the scoop in the 'cozy'.  

Edited to add:  Connie left me a question about the size of the cozy:  Hi Connie, I wasn't able to reply to you directly since you're a no-reply commenter.  The strip I used was 4 x 12 inches.  I placed the edgers confetti cut in the middle and die cut it out.  I then wrapped the patterned paper around the card base, while centering the scoop.  I had to trim my card base a smidge to make things a comfortable fit.  The trick is to put a stopping mechanism in the bottom of the cozy.  I used the same yellow ribbon and taped it inside the cozy so that the card can't 'fall through'.  I'll post another design since this particular card has gone postal already :)

Just say yes to Yellow + Green!
