Love you .....

....   Good morning everyone!  Today is the official opening of the 22nd Winter Olympics at Sochi.  I love these games, I've always been a big fan of ice skating, and being in the US there is quite good coverage.  I suspect a lot of that is because they do have good medals chances in most of the disciplines.  I would like to see the British team, but sadly I don't think they will may the cut!  Hey ho!!

Time to share a card that I made for a few challenges:

Love You and Coffee - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborahs' Gems

Stamps: Impression Obsession - Smell the Coffee; Verve - Better with You; Lil' Inkers - Coffee Cozy; Stampin' Up! - Tea Shoppe; Hero Arts - Need Caffeine
Inks: SU - Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Chocolate Chip
Dies: Lil' Inkers - Coffee Cozy
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Marina Mist; Copics; Linen Thread

I used almost all my coffee stamps sets on this card!  Yes, I know I've a lot, but I adore coffee!!!!  I used the Retro Sketch for the layout, the colours from CAS - Colour & Sketches and the inspiration from Curtain Call, although I did change it from cocoa to coffee. 

I made the background from a mat of blue and a white panel stamped steaming with coffee cups, which I coloured with Copics and then cut into bands.  Instead of buttons I used little coffee cups.  I kept the main panel fairly simple with a bold sentiment, some thread and the steaming coffee cup which I adhered with dimensional gel.  The little coffee band was coloured with Copics.  On the inside I did a mat layer in blue, some coffee stains and a little pun sentiment!

I had lots of fun with this card.  I'm keeping this one in my stash.  I tend to have lots of cards ready to give to Jonathan - just because!  That's all for now.  I've got a lot of housework to catch up on, some cards to make and I want to try and find the Winter Olympics online.  See you tomorrow for our new challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown!  Bye, be safe.
