Life Happens Over Coffee

Gosh I can't believe it's been a week since I have gotten inky!!!

Work has been CRAZY busy! 
So much going on, changes happening and I seem to be smack in the middle! LOL!

This morning after Chloe and I took Snickers to the groomers I needed to try and get my mojo going. So I popped over to the Dynamic Duos Challenge Blog and also the Freshly Made Sketches as a starting point.

The Dynamic Duos Challenge #49 is Basic Black and Basic Grey with a dessert option of masculine.
I am in need of a birthday card for someone at work who is a heavy coffee drinker. I think he visits Tim Horton's 3 times during our work day! 
My layout comes from the Freshly Made Sketch #82.
Stamps are from Verve's Better With You.
I stamped the coffee stains off once on a piece a paper.

Stamps: Better With You; Cardstock: White, Basic Black, Basic Grey, SU retired DP; Inks: Basic Black, Basic Grey, Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Sewing, Dimensionals

Fantastic card, Dawn! I love the way you can post a super girly card and then a perfect masculine card right after.

So did you take Snickers to the groomers or did Chloe have a spa day? :P

Marisa said...

Did Chloe got to the groomers or did she take Snickers ;)

Love the touch of stitching against the dark colours - pops wonderfully. Three trips to Timmy's in a day - that's a lot of coffee!

Gorgeous card, Dawn! You have colored the coffee cup so beautifully that I thought it looked almost 3-d at first glance. And I love your stitching! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
