Wake up and smell the coffee

I have one last coffee card for this morning and it is also using the Craftin' Desert Diva image called Bunny Latte and I put it with a sentiment from TLC.  I just love this wonderful sketch that came out from Tuesday Morning Sketches and I pulled out some old papers from Authentique.

Coffee to save the day

I have a card for the 2017 Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop as well as it being for the Cupcake Inspiration Birthday Celebration.  I have a friend that is into Batman so this will be the perfect card for her.  The image is from Craftin' Desert Divas called Coffee Hero, and I used the pre-colored image along with the sentiment. The birthday sentiment is from TLC.

You're a real hoot

I've had this image colored for some time, but just haven't done anything with it until now.  I have a bunch that I have colored so I've been trying to work with them.  This image is from Little Miss Muffet and the sentiment and patterned paper is from TLC.

Happy 4th Anniversary

My massage therapist is having his 4th Anniversary for having his business open and trust me I wouldn't go anywhere else.  With having diabetes, I get problems with range of motion in some of my joints and it really helps to have regular massages.  So this is a card that I made for him and his staff.  I used embossing powder for the sentiment from Verve and a sticker for the number 4.

Just want to "espresso" my thanks

I just couldn't pass up this adorable image from Craftin' Desert Diva called Espresso Yourself and it goes well with a sentiment from TLC.  I kept it rather simple with an embossed background.  Today I was on a color theme of navy and kraft.

Stand your Grounds

Here is another card that I made for the Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  It is using an image from Mo Manning called Coffee and a sentiment from TLC.  I am planning to send this card to my daughter who is a teacher and enjoys her Starbucks before school and has a class full of energy with her 4th graders.  I give her credit because I could not work with kids.....I am a nurse and I tend to work with the other end of the age spectrum.
