Coffee and Friends... Lauren's sketch
Yeah again! I got another sketch done. This one is Lauren Meader's sketch and this card turned out SO much better than yesterday's sketch card. I was about to redo it, but just decided not to - too lazy. The more I looked at it the uglier it got. Anyway, this one turned out great and I like it. It is coffee themed again, but then again, I love my coffee which reminds me I have to get the new Lattebella from Stamping Bella!!! I am lucky enough to have my very own manly barrista to serve me everyday, which reminds me that I will have to make my own this next week since my manly barrista is leaving me alone with the 3 kids during spring break. Do you feel sorry for me yet...
I basically followed Lauren's color scheme but tweaked it for the paper that I was using, which is the reason why this card turned out so much better than yesterday's. I swear I didn't make up that color combination and in the end it didn't work - I guess that's why I don't make paper. Anyway, I saw this paper at Joann's and just loved it. I added the cafepost stamp to the large dot paper to add some more interest. I would have preferred the dots smaller, but again, I didn't make the paper. See that lovely ribbon I used? That was a little gift in my package of COPIC Spica Glitter Pens that I got for an early birthday gift from my wonderful MIL from Ellen Hutson. Little freebies are awesome!!! I masked my sentiment saying so the front says coffee and friends and then I stamped the rest of it on the inside "are the perfect blend".
