I love coffee...

Sometimes its the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning. I'm not a coffee purist though. I like mine with skim milk and a little hot chocolate powder. Weird huh?

I made this card for the Lime Tart sketch challenge. You can see more card samples at the Lime Tart blog.

The card uses all justjohanna stamps and the Basic Grey Infuse paper (seemed right for a coffee card). I colored the coffee cups with my Prismacolor markers - see there is a little shading. I think I'm getting better (LOL).

I want to thank everyone for the kind comments on my blog banner photo. I got some great suggestions. One person mentioned that it is a little too wide - I agree and need to work on that. Someone else mentioned adding some flourishes. I think that is a great idea! Now to figure out how to do it (LOL). I don't have any digi scrapping software and I don't think my photo editing software is capable. Maybe I need to buy more software! (But right now I'm saving up for the new cutter Julie recommended). So it might have to wait - maybe Santa will bring it.

Thanks for stopping by!! (gotta go get some coffee....)
