you got this!





Whew, I gotta tell you.  I must have been a mechanical engineer in my previous life because I so don't have that 'thought process capability' now.  Mechanical things always throw me for a loop and that relates to crafting how?  Crafty dies with many pieces...scares me every time, just like the ikea bag 'o nuts + bolts.  I've had the Taylored Expressions Koffee Time stamp + die combo for awhile.    I finally played with it the yesterday and used THIS card by Jean Manis as a template.  I made it!


Super please with how it came out.  I'm such a fan of my Keurig...use it every morning.  I use to brew pots of coffee on my days off but haven't done that in awhile.  I should start that up again since I picked up some coffee in Hawaii during our last trip.

The sentiment is from the Oh Frappe set by Essentials by Ellen.  See that sweet flower on the mug?  It's from the Bohemian Blooms set by Essentials by Ellen.  I stamped it with Hero Arts Unicorn white and followed up with Hero Arts white embossing powder.  I topped it with an enamel dot.


I was inspired by the current Mix it Up Challenge over in The Classroom.  They're mixing it up with Taylored Expressions.


I'm also linking up to Taylored Expressions, Share Joy Challenge.  My first time linking up!


I was inspired by the sketch and used green for my mug, okay, so green is my favorite color but there is green in the inspiration photo!  Fun thing they do in the Share Joy Challenge, we're to share who we're sending the card to.  This one is going to a sweet gal that is going through some health issues.
