Love my coffee....I'm just sayin'

I love my morning coffee.
Really I do! So when I got back to town this week and saw the delightful freebies that Paulette had up on the Create with TLC blog, I simply had no choice but to snag them!
There are days that instant really would be too slow... I like my Bunn, you pour through the top, and almost immediately, you stick your straw into the carafe on the bottom...JUST KIDDING!

I interrupt this regularly scheduled program to wish my best stampin' friend ever, a very Happy Birthday!!! Shirley, I don't know why I was so lucky to have you come into my life, but I love and appreciate you every day!!!

If YOU would like to wish Shirley a Happy Birthday, hop over to her blog, Glittered Paws, and give her some love!!!

Anyway, my card today was just a quick, fun few minutes of relaxation. It features both an image and sentiment from Create with TLC. The DP is Stampin' Up. Coloring is Tombow markers. The chair seat, I cut from a scrap of the ribbon on the card.

And here's the inside...

Hope it makes you smile a bit. I'm sure that more than one of you can relate to the sentiment! In fact, I'm guessing that I'm keepin' pretty good company in that respect!!! You know who you are!

If you haven't been over to Create with TLC lately, hurry over and check it out! You can be a part of an upcoming blog hop! What could be more fun than hopping with ME??? lol...don't answer that, I cry easily!

Have a great evening, and a blessed day tomorrow. We are going to help DD with some household things at her place, so I may be MIA in blogland.

  11. Yes, it did make me smile! What a fun card!

  12. you KNOW I can relate! This card reminds me of my mom. She drank instant coffee and would heat her water up in the microwave. Still she would complain that it took too long! Talk about a hardcore coffee drinker!!

  13. Well this definitely made me smile! Perfect papers and colors for this awesome image. Glad you're back and that you rec'd the card and liked it! Yay. And, you are VERY welcome to any time to color with me! I'd love it! Somehow, I don't think we'd get much actual coloring done though. hehehe hugz, Mary

  14. CUTE! I can't function each day without a cuppa joe. My kids know not to ask for anything until I have a cup in my hand. You are not alone. Glad you had a fun RV trip. Have you ever seen the movie RV with Robin Williams??? If not, rent it. I know you will laugh. We have the same sense of humor I think. Have a great week!


  15. Great card Patti! I hear you about the coffee. I tell my kids to go play in the playroom after breakfast and I sit at the computer and find out what's going on in the stamping world while enjoying my cup of coffee! I really like the DSP too (wink!) Take Care! Amanda

  16. Oh wow Patti - I love this card! It's so neat, clean and cute. Can't do the coffee, has to be Pepsi, now if I could find a Pepsi
    Have a great day!
    "Hugs" Carol

  17. Patti, your card is gorgeous inside and out!
    I am not a coffee person, but I do love my caffeine. I just get it in die coke form.
    Hugs and smiles

  18. I like coffee too! Although I can't love it cause I don't eat it that much!! Love the card and I'll be sure to go hoppin with ya!! Off to wish a happy birthday!!

  19. Addicted, that's me!! Coffee that is! Love it just like you and I do love your brilliant card! Hugs Nilla

  20. First the sentiment made me laugh, then your comment about your Bunn and the straw really made me laugh! We have a Bunn too, and for the same reason you do. Quick, good coffee! Love your card and thanks for the link! Best, Curt

  21. Just the cutest card, great papers too. Love the sentiment.


  22. Patti, love your card and reading your blog!! I could almost smell the coffee brewing!!

  23. I have a Bunn, too! It's wonderful!!! Your card is great. Love how you did the chair. Don't work too hard at your daughter's place!

  24. What a fun card Patti!! I just love your image and sentiment. You should enter this in the Stampin Sisters in Christ Humor challenge this week.

  25. Well I surely didn't mean to overlook this post as it is just "charming" - as I sit here and drink my coffee this am. Love the ribbon cushion the the chair and the dp is perfect. Great job my friend,.

  26. SUCH a cute card, Patti! And yes, I relate! I didn't have any today and my head is still pounding :)

  27. Fab card Patti! What a great freebie and I LOVE your ribbon chair seat.
    I'm a tea girl myself though, the rattle of the spoon in the teacups is usually the only way Greg can drag me out of bed in the mornings!

  28. The end of the hop. Thank you

  29. Now you can't be posting sappy stuff like that and makin' be get all teary eyed! I'm so glad you have Shirley as well. I truely is a blessing from heaven above and I don't take those kinds of friendships for granted.

    Cute card! I love how the brown flowers have polka dots on them to go with the circles in the background. and that seat cover is brilliant! That sentiment is crackin' me up. I like coffe, but it doesn't always like me. So I have to stick to a cup here and there.

    I hope you had a wonderful time with DD!
