Coffee Please!

Hello kind followers. Many of you who personally know me recognize that this card was really made with me in mind. I definitely HAVE to have my coffee when I get up in order to wake up and get going. I enjoy coffee. I enjoy the smell and the taste. 

This week's sponsor is Bugaboo Digital Stamps, and here is our sketch:

 This was a fun sketch. It is easy and quick but not totally CAS. The fishtail elements add some dimension and a nice focal point to draw your eye to the image. 

My image is called Mis JJ Coffee. 

The image comes in both b&w and pre-colored. I enjoy coloring, but for the past several months, I've really enjoyed using pre-colored or stamped images using one ink color only. I've been able to make some really nice cards in less time which has helped with my busy schedule. 

I started with a piece of blue cardstock to create my base card. I added the piece of stripe background (from my scrap bag). I then matted my pre-colored image on a piece of the blue and adhered it to the center of the card front. I cut the two fish tail pieces from the blue using a Memory Box fishtail banner die.

You could add a bit more bling if you wanted by adding gems to the fishtail or replacing the fishtail pieces with another design -- take a look at some of the things the other DT members did with theirs by visiting the Tuesday Morning Blog.


  1. This is my kinda girl and my own personal feelings about coffee too! LOL I love everything about coffee and mornings are misery without my cuppa joe! The stripes add to the fun of this image and sentiment, and you and I should enjoy a cup of morning coffee together one day :)

  2. Fun card! I'm not a coffee drinker but I know many people that this fits perfectly!! LOL

  3. Not a coffee drinker here either but it makes me grin every time I see this image!

  4. Yep - my sentiments exactly! I'm a coffee drinker - 1 cup a day and I'm not caffeine sensitive but mentally I have to have that one cup of coffee.
