MTSC36 Smell the Coffee


Ahhhh.... caffeine! The breakfast of champions! Hehe.... This has been a whirlwind of a month and I've needed caffeine to keep me going I swear. My husband was home for awhile and left again on the 10th of August. Silly me.... thinking that 13 days was enough to get all my DT projects done as well as working full time. Needless to say I've been an incredibly busy girl this month who has been fueled by my fave drinks: Grande Peppermint Mocha Lite Frappucino from Starbucks and my handy dandy faithful Diet Pepsi! My DT projects for the month are done (I can't wait to show you later on this week) and tonight I just wanted to play!

I've been a fan of Mercy's sketch challenges for quite some time and was happy when she started them up again on her blog, Lord Have Mercy. I haven't had the chance to play so tonight when I saw that the sketch was already posted, I went to my stamp cave and started creating. Of course, I had to go with the coffee theme tonight. I love this Impression Obsession stamp set, Smell the Coffee so I inked it up using Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with clear detail embossing powder. I then colored the coffee cups with my ever faithful Tombow markers. I love this Cosmo Cricket paper and it was the inspiration for the colors of my card. Hope you like it!

Sparkle and Bling List:
Stamps: Smell the Coffee (Impression Obsession)
Paper: Gina K Luxury White, Blue Bayou, Baja Breeze, Cosmo Cricket DP, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Tombow Markers, aquapainter, ribbon, linen thread, buttons, MS punch, clear detail embossing powder
