Morning!!! Coffee anyone?
This month our hostess, April, challenged the Calendar Girls to create a card about something we are looking forward to and to use a product or technique that "scared" us. And then she provided a great sketch for us to use.
Most people are probably looking forward to summer or spring, and yes, I am too. But...the one thing that really came to my mind is the small amount of time I have alone some mornings. Some mornings, after I get my husband and kids out the door...then it is my time to sit and have a couple cups of coffee, read my devotions, blog hop, read the news, answer emails, visit with my incredible on-line friends and so on. Don't get me wrong, I love my husband and kids very much...but that little bit of "me" time is so relaxing and enjoyable.
So my card relfects my morning time. And yes, I do look forward to it!! My image is Polka Dot Mug from Whippersnappers. The sentiment is from the SU set called You're a Gem. My cardstock colors are Early Espresso (how appropriate huh?), Whisper White and Cool Caribbean. The designer paper is from American Crafts. The ribbon is Early Espresso from SU. I also used several different punches and Nestabilities. I colored my image with my Copic marker. And the product that "scared" me...is the Smooch I used. I am not sure if you can see it in the photo really, but I painted the polka dots and stripe on the mug with Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink. (The delicious cookie was made by a couple of my children...and yes, it was yummy!!)
Thanks for stopping by.
