Coffee with Friends
One of life's little luxuries, at least for me, is being able to sit down with a cup of coffee or tea and just catch up in person with friends without interruption. Everyone is so busy and babies need their mommies. Somehow, when asked to make a friendship card, I gravitate to images of coffee and tea.
I love this image by Elizabeth Bell. It was part of the Sugar Nellie, Sweet Ebony collection but I don't know if it's available now. I received some images as part of my Express Image Swap last year and I liked them so much, I never coloured them. Yes, that sounds silly to me too. But I was afraid to use them all up or worse, make a mistake. However, I started cleaning my craft area and have two kiddie shoeboxes of images. I don't think I'll run out any time soon!
The girl was coloured with copics weeks ago when I had lost my mojo. I then outlined the nestie with Frosted Lace Stickles. The paper is from my stash. I've had it for years and liked is so much that I never used it. Can you spot a theme here? The ribbon was recycled from gifts.
Blogging is awesome! After writing about how flowers don't fit the winter theme of this card, I remembered my snowflake punch and added the punches and bling in all the corners. Of course the pink snowflakes remind me of "The Cat and the Hat". Oh well.
