Coffee of the Day - French Vanilla
I have a card to share with all of you, but I'm sure you aren't really that interested in it since I mentioned in the post title that I have the winner of my blog candy to announce! :)
Our friend at the random.org has chosen Shirl as the winner this time! hooray for YOU! :) please send me an email (I'll also try to send you one shortly) with your mailing address so I can get this postal the first part of next week.
thank you to everyone who entered! I do have a purple themed blog candy at this post if you would like to try for that one.
now on to my card....
Paulette at Create with TLC has a freebie on her blog for World Card Making Day. I paired it with a sentiment of hers to make a card to send to one of my guys. thought it would be a great 'encouragement' type card for one of them.
bg paper is Basic Grey Juniper Berry, flower is Petaloo, leaf is Prima, olive crochet trim is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and buttons are all vintage. linen thread and sentiment punch are by SU!
I re-purposed a Starbuck's coffee sleeve behind the main image and added distress stickles to the pine needles for a bit of texture. it's not easy to see, but there is a double border of faux stitching around the edge.
Hope your weekend is going well so far. it is cold and rainy here, but that is our typical fall weather for the most part. don't mind as it's perfect for coffee AND crafts! :)
