Coffee Time

Hello Blog Friends - I hope you are having a lovely weekend and manage to get some relaxing in somewhere.  Once again it is Sunday night here - they seem to come around very quickly - I think the weekend goes a lot faster than any other days in the week - don't you!?!  We have had family here from Interstate and that has been wonderful - too quick but wonderful!


One of my favourite ways of relaxing is having a coffee - whether it be in a cafe with friends or at home alone in the Studio - I enjoy every sip and could not resist making this card monochromatic - almost coffee tones! 

I have cut/embossed the Delicate Doilies Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® #5 and #6 (#1 being the smallest) using white card stock and the Grand Calibur Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
  The image and sentiment are from Coffee Time Spellbinders® Celebra’tions™ Line by Richard Garay. They have been stamped using Imagine Crafts ‘featuring’ Tsukineko Versafine in Sepia.
and popped up using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  

This card is linked to the following challenges:
Hiding in my Craft Room  - favourite cutting tool  (Spellbinders Grand Calibur)
Speedy  Fox and Friends - round the corners 
Artbymiran Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes

As You Like it Challenge -  Monochrome or Colour (& Why) -the monotone colour suits the these of the stamps
