Happy Latte


I should say Happy Friday, well the stamping and creating bug finally hit me last night and I plan on spending this weekend creating cards. Have lots of Birthdays in July and a 60th that I am going to the end of the month so enough slacking time to get busy. I created this card for someone at work. She loves coffee and cigarettes, I did not want to do a card with cigarettes, being an ex smoker we all know how militant those people are so I went with the coffee theme. I love this MFT set and though it would be a great image for her birthday card, I paper pieced the dress and used my copics to color her and the coffee in and used chalk for the steam and to soften the background and some of my wonderful Michael's dew drops to add a little pizazz. Wishing everyone a great weekend and will catch up with you on Monday.
