It's Monday - must be time for COFFEE!!! but every day is time for coffee around here! grins!

Coffee of the Day - Chocolate Caramel

It's a beautiful day indeed when I can start the day with a fresh cuppa joe in my hand and feature a card with coffee on it, too!!! Today starts a new challenge over at Digital Ink - use buttons, bows, glitter and fabric on your creation.

Well the first 3 are easy peasy pumpin spice latte simple for me, 'cause I do that without even thinkin'! but FABRIC???? oh my goodness gracious me..... I don't sew...... can't faux sew straight to save my life......... the boys would notice if I ripped up their clothes for a wee scrap of material...... but then again maybe not considering the way holes in the jeans are fashionable. so I thunk and I thunk and I came up with burlap as the perfect material for my image from Jules Junk - that fabby coffee press that I adore. since coffee beans come in burlap bags when being shipped from their far off countries (or at least in my exotic imagination!) I thought that would be the ideal pairing. little did I know in my tiny burg how difficult it wuld be to track down burlap! so I settled for this neato bandito burlap garland smidgen I found at our neighborhood Michael's crafty supply store!!! Added some of the coolio retro/vintage paper from Recollections, some added embellies courtesy of Making Memories, tied my bows with linen thread, and oh yes, the glitter is painted on with shimmerz Hi Ho Silver blingz and caramel shimmerz around the main image edges. The colors match better irl than what ended up in the scan.

So grab your supplies and play along with us!! Check out the other simply AMAZING creations by the super-dee-duper DT!!! and this is the last week of the 50% off sale, so fill up your shipping cart! I did my shopping, and it was grand! :)
