 Coffee/Tea of the Day - Spiced Hazelnut coffee 

Welcome back to another project for Junk Journal July. for more information about the challenge, see this post.

Today's prompt is 'fussy cutting.' oh my gosh, is this ever my nemesis. I love the look of fussy cut ephemera, but good golly is it ever hard for me to do. my tremors make it difficult to hold onto any paper to cut. I also can't do it for very long or else it triggers seizures. that is why if you ever see fussy cutting on something I have made, you know that it is a special project for a special person. ;)

I created a journaling card to add to Tyler and Danielle's nautical journal.  I have used a junk mail postcard covered in coffee dyed paper. other papers are from Fancy Pants and Mintay Papers. fussy cut pieces are from Ronda Winstead, Mintay Papers, and 49 & Market.

I added some netting from an onion bag as well as a blue ticket. I kept the back a bit more simple to allow room for a photo or writing. some white paint was spattered across the card front. 

thank you for stopping by today!

I always love how you repurpose things - the netting from the onion bag. I would never have thought about that!
