This week's sketch is brought to us by Diva Anya from the Verve Inspiration Team. When I first saw the sketch it reminded me of a coffee cup (mug with a handle) so I decided to make a coffee themed card using Verve's Java Joy and Sip and Savor sets. I recently had a five hour coffee (yes you read right!) with a very good friend of mine and wanted to send her this card as a thank you. Our life does happen over coffee because we don't get to see each other nearly as often as we would like to so we literally do get caught up on life over coffee.
I created my own patterned paper using the Java stamp and combined the sentiments from the two sets. An arrow was a fun way of highlighting the "let's get together" sentiment which I faux stitched on to the focal panel. I paper pieced the coffee cup, added some ribbon and was good to go. Now I have a rather large craving for a decaf latte! May have to indulge in a quick trip to Starbucks for one.
The kids are back in school again and we are all settling back into our regular routines again. Soccer for my son, piano for my daughter, some working for hubby for me and a bit more regular stamping time once again - yeah!
Any friend you need to share life with over coffee? Go for it!
