Recycled - But First...Coffee

Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by - if it was IRL we would have a coffee together and all things creative - how lovely would that be!  It is a drizzling Sunday here and we are loving it - and desperately need it infact - so I thought it would be a great time to share a little recycled Coffee Humour with you - brace yourself! Wink:wink!!

I have had the cow image for a long time and decided to fussy cut (hand cut using scissors) and pop it up onto a negative Die from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Swirl Frame Etched Dies On the Wings of Love Collection by Joanne Fink - using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares - don't you love those funky swirls!  I used the original Die HERE.

The layered image has been popped up onto a card front - using patterned paper designed by the lovely and talented Trudy SjolanderThe paper reminded me of a meadow of grass and flowers - perfect for the crazy cow!! LOL!  All of the layers have been adhered to the pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

 A computer generated sentiment has been trimmed and adhered onto the negative Die.  A coffee has been added to the image - what more does it need!?
