Coffee Lover's Blog Hop



I thought I would play along with the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop since I haven't yet had a chance to ink up the Perfect Blend set from Neat & Tangled (designed by my sweet friend May).

I kept this very simple.  The coffee cup was inked in Memento and the coffee design was stamped with WPlus9 Coconut Husk ink.

I added a bit of shading to the coffee cup and then fussy cut it.

The papers are from Crate's Craft Market 6x6 pad.  I added a layer of vellum and a bit of stitching to soften things.



The sentiment is also from the Perfect Blend set and I added a few sequins (Dark Chocolate Satin and Pearl Sequin Mix).

Nothing too fancy here, but I like the simplicity of it.

Ok, we're off to Mom's house.  On the docket today, lunch at the Indian buffet and then bouncing for the kids while Mom and I chat.
