Coffee and friends ....

....  Morning all!  A nice way to spend a morning is catching up with friends over coffee and cake!  Here's a card I've made for a friend of mine in the UK:

Coffee & Friends - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Reverse Confetti - Be A Barista; Paper Smooches - Cyber Cafe
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Night of Navy, Crumb Cake, Old Olive
Accessories: Cream Lustre Card; SU Card - Old Olive; SU DP - Old Olive; Promarkers; Glitter

I used the sketch from Retro Sketches - RS#102 for the layout, the colours from Colour Throwdown - CTD#280 and the theme of coffee from Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#32

This one came together really quickly.  I stamped the coffee cup onto white card and coloured it with Promarkers, cut it out and, after adhering it to the front of the card, added some sparkle, which you can't see in the photo above, but you can in the detail shot!  On the inside I cut a mat layer of green and on the cream panel stamped some coffee rings and a greeting.

There's a new challenge starting soon at TIME OUT Challenges, but at the moment they are having a Design Team call, so I'm going to throw my name in the hat!  You can see the little glitter hearts in the coffee foam!

After the beautiful blue skies yesterday, I'm looking out the office window at snow falling again!  It's not going to stay snow for long though, the temperature is going up fast and it'll be rain before you know it!  It's really gloomy out there.  Good thing I can stay indoors and watch the Olympics - the Ladies Free Dance is on as I type.  So, I'm off to make coffee and then sit down and watch what should be a fantastic competition.  See you soon!
