Coffee..... Anyone????

Was not planning on making a coffee card today but came across this image I printed out eons ago and since it is the Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop I would make a card.  I had this paper on my desk so I just went with it.   The inside reads.... "Never under estimate the power of being properly caffeinated!"
The perfect little card for a coffee gift card!

Way out of the box....

This is way out of the box for me.  In fact, it almost made the circular file but I think I salvaged it and it is actually growing on me.   This is my first purchase of a Unity Stamp..  I used all watercolors.

Layer it up!

Hello friends,  I got this stamps some time ago and have never inked it up.  Today was the day!  I know a few quilters who I have a feeling will be requesting some cards.  The inside says...



Designed by heart

Pieced in time

Sewn by hand
                                    And bound to keep you covered!

I colored with copics and the paper is from My Minds Eye.  Truly not in need of a quilt these days Sat it was 117 degrees yesterday 115 and today 109.  Hot, hot, hot!
