Merry Monday #174 - Java Time

Hello friends.  Playing along with Merry Monday today, and this weeks theme is to make a coffee related Christmas card.  NOT a coffee lover!  Love the way it smells, but the taste is SOOO different.  I always loved Laura Bassen's comment about coffee tasting like "hot dirt"! :0)  But anyway, I really like how my cute little card came out, and I will send it to someone who enjoys a good latte!  Take a look:


My little peppermint latte was stamped using an IO stamp that I water colored using Real Red, Pool Party, and Baked Brown Sugar (SU!) inks, a couple Copics for the pine twig and whipped cream, and some red stickles for the berries.  The word background was stamped with a Penny Black stamp called Christmas Story and distressed a bit with some Tea Dye ink, and the sentiment is from PTI - Season's Greetings and was embossed with black embossing powder.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
