A Vintage Coffee Grinder

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin spice (hubby bought almost all they had yesterday, so there won't be much left for long!)

Wanted to show you a card I started out making for last week's color challenge at DZ Doodles, but didn't get done in time because of being sick. Went ahead and finished it up anyhow this week and will try to get a card made for the current challenge. Check our the freebie image Diane is giving away. A new one will be up tomorrow, so hurry over to the site.

I used the new Basic Grey Nook and Pantry papers. The color challenge was to use light blue, dark blue, and yellow on your creation. My blues are a bit more teal-ish, but I just loved these papers with the image. Added a few fun buttons and some vintage seam tape. The borders were punched with my Fiskars apron border punch - a new to me purchase. love the look of this!!! The main image is popped up on foam tape. easy peasy pumpkin pie, but a neato card nonetheless.

Now for a completely off topic mention - some of you know that I am about as nerdy geeky as can be. My fave show to watch, 'must see t.v.' that the whole fam gathers around for EVERY week, no fail, is Big Bang Theory. We love Star Trek - all versions, when we get bored, play 'name that alien species from the ST series' (believe me - that can go on for hours!! grins!). I am enamoured with X-Men and can tell you about many of the characters and their histories. well, the list could just go on and on. (but I do draw the line at going to conventions - go figure) One of the weekly emails I get is from a site called 'How That Works'. The one this week was super cool! and both Tyler and I were able to figure out most of the gadgets. Check out this article,
"Top 10 Star Trek Technologies that Actually Came True" . Just too neat to pass up!!! And while I am at it, I may as well post this one, too. We cracked up that there are actual directions and a website. We first heard about this extension on Big Bang - Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock. Check out the episode and then check out the directions. don't forget, as it always has, rock crushes scissors!

Awesome card! I like your off topics. I love Big Bang Theory too. You would love to live in my neighbor hood. I live on Warp Dr and you turn on Picard and Crusher to get to me.

Love the colors you used on your card and you've colored this beautifully. I can remember having one of these in our home growing up. I think one of my sisters has it now.

Hi Teamy,

Thanks for joining my candy - doesn't seem to be that popular though - oh well you learn by your mistakes don't you.
I love your card. The colour combo is great and love the added extras.

Hope you feel better soon.
