Coffee With Friends

Hello All,
I am still working on my creative room "exchange"...
tonight the DH is going to move my lights, yeah, then maybe I can see what I am doing!!
I had to put it off for a bit to do some DT am not sure when I can get back to it.
I did manage to get a black eye from my "moving" event.
My "laziness" caused me to have my paper stacker fall over on me and hit me
in the eye, let alone dumping ALL my DS paper helter skelter.....
AND...the fact that the entire thing came apart and not so mechanical "me"
had to figure out how to put it back together....ugh...
So, last night, just to pacify myself, I actually put a card together for a challenge.
I used to never, ever miss the Flourishes challenges, but it has been awhile
So, I came up with this card for the challenge "Grab A Cup"
I don't know about you, but I love any kind of coffee, teapot, cup stamps!!
I started my card on SU Very Vanilla cardstock with a piece of paper that
I received in a package of goodies I won from Simon is so pretty!
I already had my Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish cut, and the bow
was one I had made up..that ribbon came from gingham ribbon!
My birds are a MS punch...and the coffee cup is a Flourishes Stamp from the set
"Coffee With Friends"...I think this might be one of the very first stamp sets
I purchased from Flourishes....I stamped it and fussy cut it out.
I even finished the inside of my card!!
Well, that's it for now...back to work !!

So soothing and very pretty. I like the flourished die you added with the cup, lovely. So glad you were able to play, even if it has been awhile. ;-) Thanks for playing in Flourishes Grab A Cup Challenge this week.

Awww this is really cool Diane! I don't think I have that many 'cup' type stamps/dies ... but of course, once again, you have enabled me since I just LOVE this card creation!
Sorry about the black eye ... yikes!

I'm so sorry for the broken eye and the broken stacker! But good for you for putting it back together!

And if it's any consolation, your Flourishes card is fantastic! What a winning take on the inspiration photo!!

Take it easy now; you're hard on yourself! Hugs, Darnell

Another stamp room mishap? Yikes! I hope you survive this thing. But in the meantime, you made a beautiful card. The flourish with the birds is so pretty, and I love the colors. Take care, my friend!
