The Best Part of Waking Up...

Anyone like coffee? I'm not a coffee drinker, but I know most people covet their coffee (including my 12-cups-a-day husband). So plain old coffee was the inspiration for today's CAS card.


I'm playing along with Unity's Friends With Flair and used the beautiful coffee stamp from the Livin' and Lovin' Life KOM. Here's a close-up of that awesome stamp:


I first ran the"glorious" image from Ali Edwards's "Thick Awesome Words" set through Photoshop to adjust the color and size. Once I got the right pink (on ivory, the color changed a little), I printed the sentiment and then stamped and embossed the coffee cup. The navy houndstooth paper is from My Mind's Eye Lush 2 collection.

For those of you who read my last post, I'm in the middle of the garage sale. No mob today, but I have made enough to get some new goodies. Pus, I cleaned out my craft room and found some PTI ribbon I thought I had lost. Yeah!

Thanks for looking and thank you for your comments! Have a great weekend!
