Coffee...it's what's for breakfast!

What not to do on a beautiful sunshiny Saturday morning.....make a stop in the craft lair!  Uh Oh, it's now 10:30 am and there is much work to be done in the garden.  I am trying to rid a bed of volunteer lily of the valley (have you ever tried to dig up lily of the valley?  It grows as you are digging!) that has taken over so I can make room for a new Hosta garden.  I received 7 beautiful, large Hostas as a gift from a friend's husband.  This new garden will be in remembrance of my dog rescue friend Cindy, who passed away a couple of years ago.

I knew I wanted to make a card for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop that is this week so I did get something accomplished.  I just picked up this stamp when I stopped in at a scrapbook store I had not been to.  Now I have 2! coffee stamps.  Yippeee....

Brown dotted paper from Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go 6x6 pad
layered on kraft paper
Stamp and sentiment from Art Impressions Cathy Caffeine Set
stamped in Versamark, heat set with Zing Brown embossing powder,
then colored with Spectrum Noir markers (still practicing!)
Coffee beans also stamped with Versamark on Kraft,  heat set with the same brown,
fussy cut, and popped up a bit with Zots dots
Tiny bakers twine bow secured with a brown brad
  Not bad for a first try with a new stamp.  This is a birthday card for a former co-worker.  We always had coffee together, but now we're both retired.  Miss Corinne!
