Coffee Time for Merry Monday and Mojo Monday.....

Hello my friends: I have another card to share with you and I'm linking it to the Merry Monday Coffee Challenge and the Mojo Monday sketch challenge, I was so happy I was able to make a card to combine both. Here is my card.



Once again, I'm using an old, retired Flourishes stamp set called "Grab a Cup", I made THIS card with the other cute image.
This stamp set also has a coffee bean stamp so I fussy cut the little beans and attached to the panel to follow the sketch design. I stamped the images onto Canson Canva water color paper and colored them with the aqua painter and my SU markers in Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Basic Gray, I used my Hello Honey ink pad for the napkin and also, to sponge the edges of the panel a little bit. The sentiment was stamped with my Baked Brown Sugar ink pad. I was very happy to see that the Christmas decorations in the DSP, (from Hobby Lobby) matched the colors of my images.
Here are the banners that inspired this card.      
Thank you for stopping by, now go get a Latte.
Hugs from Maria.

Thank you Julee, believe it or not, I HAVE ONLY ONCE drank a coffee like the one in this image, it was so hard for me to drink it because the image on top of the foam was so darn gorgeous, I didn't want to brake it or disturb it but I finally gave up, and the coffee was amazingly delicious.
I love, love playing along with Mojo Monday!!!!!

Thank you Bonnie, as a coffee lover, this set just speaks to me, I need my cup of Java early in the mornings before I start coloring my cards.
