Smell the Coffee

I saw this image some time ago on Sharon Johnson's blog (No Time to Stamp) and I really liked it. I ordered it from Impression Obsession - it's called "Take Time to Smell the Coffee." I colored it with Copics when I got it but then it sat in that state until this week when I finished the actual card. I love the images in this set. I used DP from Urban Prairie and used Barely Banana CS with it. The black lace border was punched with my MS punch. The sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point and punched with my 1" circle punch. I have a good friend who I exchange birthday cards with, and we always express that we wish we could grab a cup of coffee together (which we can't do since she lives a lonnnnng way away.) Hope you like it. I've actually been doing cards but I'm planning on submitting them to the KLSNS Guest Designer challenge which expires at the end of April (for May posting,) so I can't post them until I've either been picked for that spot, or not picked, in which case I can still post them to my blog at that time. I've had fun doing them and I'd love to share them with you, either as their Guest Designer (I would LOVE that) or just as little ol' me. Thanks for coming by. Have a wonderful Sunday. I'm close to the deadline on my HM card but hope to do it tomorrow.

Karen, I love this card and the image also. The paper you used is so pretty, I'm so glad you used a big panel of it. It compliments your image and the way you colored it so nicely. Thank you also for your comment on my blog about the book. Have a happy Sunday.

I love how you did this with these colors. You know, I have this set and absolutely LOVE it, but have only used the single cup so far. I just love the other stamps, too. I'm going to be inspired by your card and get busy! Thanks!
