I apologize for my delay in posting. I was supposed to have this project posted by May 15th. It's the May round of the Dueling Darlings. But I ended up sick and very much delayed in posting.
My wonderful friend Carol, from the Divas' team and I were this month's hostesses. We decided that we would like to show appreciation to the two team leaders. Jeanette, is the team leader for our Dazzler team and Kelly is the team leader for the Divas. The Dueling Darlings was their brainchild and we wanted to give a shout out to each of them because we all love them so much!!!! So our challenge this month was that when you posted your card/project to your blog you were to give a shout out to your team leader. We kept this a secret from Jeanette and Kelly.
One thing both Jeanette and Kelly have in common is their love of their Starbucks. So Carol and I decided that we would center this month's theme around coffee and friendship. This month's theme was "The Perfect Blend." (And what is better than coffee with a girlfriend...or tea, or a soda...you get the idea.)
I can't say enough about Jeanette. She is always nice and encouraging to everyone. Makes everyone feel very welcome in her swaps and always has a kind word to say. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a compassionate soul. She is a wonderful prayer warrior and I am truly blessed to share my burdens and victories with her. I am honored to call her my friend.
This month I decided to make a bag using a brown paper lunch sack. I will fill it with some small packages of flavored coffee or some chocolate covered coffee beans and give it away as a gift.
My main image is Hot Java Divas from Whippersnappers which I colored with my Copics. I also used Tiny Tea Cup from SU! And the sentiment is Latte Love from Fiskars. The designer paper is Friends Cream from DCWV and Yummy Coffee Beans from Hot off the Press/Paper Pizzaz. I cannot recall where I bought the twill from but it has the word "coffee" on it and then some coffee beans. Thanks for stopping by!
