You may or may not have noticed, but I've been pretty much absent in blogland as of late. DH had a minor surgical procedure (which went well), and while at the doctor's office, he proceeded to pick up that nasty upper respiratory virus that's been going around. So I've been playing nurse these last several weeks. I don't mind; it's all part of marriage. As he's sleeping in this morning, I decided to forgo the chores and take a little "me" time. The kitchen, vacuuming, and so forth can wait a few more minutes. Crafting can't! Hopefully, he'll feel a bit better today too!
My coffee card looks like this:
Starting from the base, I used a previously
hoarded saved scrap of SU paper. Jen M., you'll recognize this right away... I stamped some LF woodgrain on an MFT die cut panel of watercolor paper, and used my Ziggies to color it up. The coffee cup is ancient. It's a printed die cut purchased from a now defunct Scrapbook store in Cedarburg. I heat embossed the sentiment. Some old flowers, and a nice Poppystamps leaf die. It went together pretty quickly. And since the theme at SSS Monday Challenge is Food and/or Drink, I'm going to play there too. And I'm off to check on my sleeping patient again. Happy dances everyone!
As an "aside...," what the heck did blogger do to my header???? It took away the nice gray pattern and left a strip of the ugly, old one peeking through. Wonder if it's time to move to Wordpress?! Has this ever happened to you? Aaaarrrrgggghhhhhhhhhhh!
