coffee = sunny smiles.

Happy Sunday!
So I’ve had this Stamps of Life set, coffee4two, with the coordinating dies for, well, awhile.  I bought it from the fabulous Niki Garcia.

I had so much fun playing with them yesterday.  It always makes me feel productive when I use something highly neglected for the first time

Why yes, the cup is wood veneer!

The paper is from my Simon Says Stamp August kit.

The sentiment is SRM Sticker is from their Summer collection.  I smacked it on a wood veneer circle that I picked up in J’s unfinished wood section.

I was inspired by

I loved seeing this on Taheerah’s blog…we’re in the process of putting together a joint office…darin already has an office downstairs so we’re converting the girl’s room {she is living in her apartment} into a joint office for me and the boy!  Currently he does his homework in his room, sitting on his bed, watching TV.  Don’t get me wrong, it works…he had all A’s last year but having a joint office will be even better.  I’m moving my computer over there, along with the printer.

Anywho’s, my card was inspired by:

All the exposed wood
the pops of color {especially from the washi}:  coffee sleeve
smidges of white:  coffee lid

My card was also inspired by

Yay for this challenge!  I LOVE shaped cards but never seem to make any!

and the last challenge…

I was, if you didn’t figure it out already, inspired by the coffee challenge!

  4. This is fabulous, Amy, and so you!! I love the wood veneer coffee cup and the colors you used. I am not a coffee drinker (sacre bleu!!), but I would happily drink my vanilla steamed milk if it came in a a cup with this pop of color. πŸ˜‰

    Hope the office reno continues to come along well. Now,I need to find some wood veneer to add to my craft stash – interesting that I have not seen it in my local stores or on line yet. I must not be looking in the right places.
