Calling all Coffee Lovers

There is nothing like that first cup of coffee in the morning - I love to savour it!!! I realise coffee is not everyone's thing - but it is for many of us - I am a professional coffee drinker...and love it!! I do have to say though, I have gone from 4-6 brewed cups of coffee a day down to 1, maybe 2 and that is fine...but...how true is this sentiment!?!

Another Emerson and another great sentiment - love these quirky gals - according to two of the boutiques that sell may cards they really appeal to the 40 -60 age bracket - so that put me in my place - no more denial - sigh!!

This card is for the Die cut Dreams Challenge which Susie and Vikki run each week - it is a lot of fun - if you haven't already checked it out - you need to! This weeks theme is Black and White....as tempting as it was to do an elegant card, which B&W just scream for, I did a CLASSIC - and there is nothing more 'classic' than Emersons!! LOL!

I have also used recycled packaging from a 'faux fur' throw rug we brought and have used the SU Eyelets Border Punch on it - so hello 2RedBananas who are all about reuse, recycle and reduce this week! I love it when I can do more than one challenge with the one card - it's a bit of a 'buzz'. So with that in mind The Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge for this week is all about Shimmer and this card has that - I have used CE on the sunnies and the coffee cup, as well as silver and charcoal glitter pens on this gal's dress and the chair - you can't have an Emerson gal with out the bling (in my opinion!)

Thank you for coming by and seeing what I have been up to - please leave a comment so I know you have been, you know I would hate to miss you!!! I hope you have a great day....it is fast approaching evening here....time just flies!! God bless you!
