Life Before Coffee???

So, tell me where the weekend went - wow, it went fast, that I know for sure!

Today's card uses an older set from JustRite Stamps.



I am submitting this card to these challenges:

Joan's Gardens Weekly Card Challenge: Use ONLY JustRite Stamps.
One Crazy Stamper: Sketch Challenge (I also used stamps found in the One Crazy Stamper store)


Supplies Used: Kraft Cardstock, Tim Holtz Cardstock, Versafine Brown Ink, Copic Markers, Starburst Glitter Pen, EK Success Border Punch, Buttons and Twine from my stash.


Hope you coffee lovers out there can relate!

Thanks for stopping by,
Have a great week!
Patti J.

Food for thought:
You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself.

As a matter of fact, I just sat down with my second cup! Love this card Patti. . . Love the sentiment and love the colors. Browns are so my favorite colors. Also LOVE the spotted band that goes across and the little coffee cup. This is one of my most fav cards of yours! Best, Curt

That stamp is a hoot! The browns in your card are perfect with it -- reminds me of the richness of a wonderful cuppa! Your dotted strip really caught my eye -- such a fun touch! Praying you're having a very relaxing weekend with much yummy coffee!
