Coffee for Two.....

Hello everyone: I know, must of us are coffeeholics, (am I right or wrong here?😉) I don't know if there is such a word, if not, well.....I just created it, ha!!!  My alarm goes off at 3:45am., 5 min. later, it goes off again so, I quietly get out of bed so hubby can snooze another 15-20 min.  As I'm going downstairs, the aroma of a freshly brewed pot of coffee hits my nose and I start to really wake up. Then comes the first sip.....ahh!! HEAVEN!!! Now, I can get hubby's breakfast and lunch ready, pack it up and wait for him to come downstairs at around 4:45, we chat for a spell and then, he leaves for work.  This card is caffeine loaded and I will link it up to a few challenges at the end of this post.


This images are from a very old stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms and the only one I have from this company that, apparently, has closed it's doors. I couldn't find much information out there so I can't be sure if this is true.  But I'm happy to have this fabulous set, it has a lot of beautiful images and sentiments, here is a picture of the whole set.


Aren't this images just so beautiful? Well, I took the chubby pot, coffee cup and saucer and the little spoon to create my card. For the pot and coffee cup in the background, I did a bit of masking, the cup in the foreground was stamped and fussy cut, the same with both little spoons.  I used SU markers and a couple of Prismacolor pencils to add some shadows.
The pattern papers are from my stash.

Here is a picture of the finished insided of my card.


The sentiment and the cream and sugar are from the set.
I would like to enter this card to the following challenges.

  5. Hi Maria, great card! Love the stamps. Thank you for the sweet comment on my Sketch Saturday post. Answering your question: the main element on my card isn't stamp. It's fussy cut out from paper by Scrapberry's and the collection calls Afternoon tea. Hugs, Macarena.

    1. Hello Furrbster: I forgot to add to this post that my hubby and I go to bed quite early every day. By 8 or 8:30pm. we are cozy and tucked in bed, we rarely stay up after 9pm.
      I tell our daughters that, unless their house is on fire or there is some kind of dyer emergency, DO NOT CALL our cell or home phone after 8pm.
      They have been really good following this directions which means thank goodness, there have been no emergencies what so ever.
