Coffee!!


The challenge at the Card Concept #10 is a coffee theme. I used a House Mouse stamp for my card, coloring with Copics and using some SU! coastal cabana dsp. I matted with some baked brown sugar card stock and added 2 snippets of burlap ribbon, and that's all this card needed! There's no room for a sentiment but the image pretty much says it all. I think this falls into the "clean & layered" category.

Are you prepared for the 80% increase in coffee prices coming soon?! I'll have to mortgage the house in order to have my morning cup of coffee pretty soon! LOL

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

What a fabulous job you did coloring this cute, cute image, Carol. I love it!

80%????? Glad I don't drink the stuff, but hubby does. They better not mess with the Diet Dr. Pepper. Ha

What a fun image, love the effort to tip the coffee mug.

80% increase? sigh. Coffee, milk and eggs, I don't fret about those prices.

Great coffee card, Carol, the mice are so cute! I hadn't heard about a rise in coffee prices, YIKES!

Just precious, Carol. I love the dsp and your colored cup matches the paper perfectly. The burlap is an ideal embellishment for this image. Have a great day.

This is one of my favorite HM images. You have made a great card with it...Like the colors you used.
I am a BIG coffee drinker...but it looks like I am going to somehow learn to live without it...

Oh my Carol, this is just too cute!! I love these cute mice anyway. The colors and papers you used are just perfect. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I think everything is going up in price from our food, to electric, to everything!!! Look at the price of a gallon of milk-outrageous! Sign of the times I guess though. Sigh Hugs, Brenda

I had no idea that coffee was getting expensive (not being a drinker). I shall be prepared for cranky people! Thanks for the head's up. Great card filled with happy buzzed mice. The burlap ribbon is the perfect embellishment for this!
