Coffee anyone?

Good morning all

Hopefully you are reading this (scheduled) post!  
I'm away on my hollies in Florida but didn't want to miss out on this lovely challenge at

Moving Along with the Times

the theme is

Food and Drink

I made this card for my hubby's birthday in January - anyone who knows him knows why!!
He's just a total coffeeholic - can't pass a coffee shop when he's out and the coffee pot's always on when he's at home.  I've had these lovely dies from Apple Blossom crafts for a while - but they were bought with him in mind but also so useful for lots of cards both male and female.  I love them!

It's an 8 x8 inch card and there was lots of die cutting, inking and matting and layering involved - quite time consuming but nothing complicated at all.  As long as it's all lined up well it's a really easy card to make - and one of those that gives you a sense of satisfaction at the end!

This is what I did .....

Dies and stamps -Apple Blossom Crafts - lifes pleasures collection 
Papers - LOTV Country Gent pad (now discontinued)
Black, centura pearl silver metalic and craft card - Crafter's Companion
Distress inks - Tea dye and brushed corduroy

Hope you'll join in with our challenge this time - I'll call in to see all your yummy makes( if I have a few moments here by the pool!!)

Hi Judith,
this card is right up my street as I too am a great coffee drinker and it's got to be what I call proper coffee.
I drink mine black with no sugar.
Love your wonderful design it's really super and brilliant.
Hope you are keeping well.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
