First time for Everything!

Hello everyone!

Well, I am going to try a new (to me) challenge today. I was blurfing this morning, and saw the inspiration photo on the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge. Oh my goodness! That photo made me happy enough to try again to load my photos, and it worked! Thanks ladies for all of your help yesterday!


Here is the Tuesday Trigger inspiration photo:




And here is my card:
Supplies used: Bazzill CS, Stampin'Up! Ribbon, Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss Embossing Folder, Copic Markers, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Ranger Glossy Accents, Gina K. Designs "my cuppa joe".


As you can probably guess, the first thing I thought of when I saw the beautiful doors and table was COFFEE!!! Actually, having a cup of coffee with a wonderful friend! Then I noticed that touch of pink in the vase, and had to add a bit of pink. I think this picture will keep me happy all day - I actually printed it out and hung it up for the day!

I am also going to enter this at 365 Cards. The challenge there today is the #1 challenge for their new year, and it's a 'white space' sketch challenge - I've posted the sketch below.

Hopefully, your week is off to a great start! We actually have no rain, no snow, and SUNSHINE!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see your card over at the Tuesday Trigger and 365 Cards!

Blessings and smiles!
Patti J.

Awesome card! I love how you've 'glassed' the coffee cup. :)

I am so glad you tried the trigger at Moxie Fab! That has to be the happiest door in the world. I bet there is no Windows 7 on the other side of it! LOL! However, I would love to have a sip of whatever that frothy goodness is in the yellow mug! It's so sunny!

Glittered Paws said...

Love It - I am thinking we just may have to make a cup of latte with whipped cream when you come to play - the only thing is I don't have those cute mugs!!! Love all the dots and it all ties together so nicely. Love your new look too.

Chelsea said...

Love it. Makes me happy too!

Eileen said...
