Must Have Coffee...

Happy Friday!!! Who needs coffee??? I know I do! This week has been a blur and the weekend isn't going to be much different! Kids have a church activity tomorrow and mommy is going to be glued to the TV to see who the Broncos will play next weekend!

So my rush of creativity has continued and today I am going to participate in my first ever Freshly Made Sketches challenge (you can click the link below to get more details)! My card is a little bit of old mixed with the new! I know you are going to like it!

My card started with a fun base of Calypso Coral. I am absolutely addicted to the Corrugated Paper in the Annual Catalog! I attached my Very Vanilla layer to the Corrugated Paper. The Very Vanilla was stamped using the new Timeless Textures stamp set with the retired Baked Brown Sugar ink. That is how I made my cute little coffee rings, I then stamped the coffee cup from Perfect Blend onto the DSP (it is from my retired stash) and then Very Vanilla card stock. I fussy cut the cup out of the Very Vanilla Card and cut the belly band out of the one I stamped onto to the DSP. Then I adhered the belly band onto the cup with my 2 way glue pen and attached it to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. The strips at the top of the sketch were made using the Corrugated Paper. I rounded the corners on these with my Envelope Punch Board. I wrapped the Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon around to add some color. The sentiment is also from the Perfect Blend. I used the 1 3/8" Circle to punch this sentiment out. Then I simply sponged around the edges, attached this with a Dimensional and popped on a couple of the enamel dots from the Holiday....

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!!
