Mojo Monday #413 - Take 2

Mojo 413B photo Mojo413b.jpg

This is my original "Tall and Skinny" card which was a result of  rushing to get it done for Monday's post after an 8.5 hour power outage and forgetting to go tall and skinny.  Nothing like having to make two cards instead of one LOL!

With the rain and cooler temps this past weekend, I was in the mood to make a coffee card using fall colours.  This was the end result.  Some old Stella and Rose MME papers, some fun, polka dotted coffee cups from Verve's Get Together and the Coffee Word die in case you thought it was tea wink, wink :) 

Also blaming my faux pas on just getting back from vacation and obviously still not into the swing of things wink, wink.  We had a wonderful family vacation over on Vancouver Island, visiting our old neighbours and getting some good quality time with hubby's parents.  Always great to stay with them and have an extended visit as it had been well over half a year since we had seen them.

We had our annual mini golf tournament and I'm ashamed to say, I lost the first round even after getting two holes in one on the first course!!  Yes, my two nemesis holes strike again LOL!   We enjoyed some time on the beach, fierce games of hearts, walking the trails, visiting Coombs for some lunch, shopping, mint moose tracks ice cream and enjoying the goats on the roof (roof is covered with grass and the goats graze up there).  Bonus: no wifi at grandma and grandpa's so we are able to totally unplug for a few days.

Paper:   Stella and Rose (My Mind's Eye), Real Red, Early Espresso, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise (Stampin' Up), Cream Linen
