I {heart} my coffee!!

If you know me, then you know I do love my coffee! I can't go without it, it's my "go go juice"! LOL! I have a huge collection of Starbucks cups as I LOVE Starbucks too! We go there every Sunday after church to get our fixes! I say our because my family loves the hot chocolate there! My Dh orders his "nuclear hot" or, as hot as they can legally make it! I'll give you a tip on how to get more coffee in your cup too, I order my coffee to be put in the next size up cup! Make sense?! I order a tall in a grande cup or a grande in a venti cup! I usually get my full size of coffee with room for my Splenda and milk and it won't spill when I stir! Good stuff! So, my family really knows how much I care when I give them a card that says something like this.....it's got to be "for reals" as my son used to say!



I used my stamp set from "Queen Kat Designs" to create this card. It's called what else but "Give Me Coffee", also known as my daily motto! The circle stamp looks like it's from an actual cup doesn't it?! It's not! It's actually a stamp called "coffee stain"! I really need to do a better job at keeping the name of my papers that I use but if you're really interested in the name of the DP let me know and I'll figure it out for you! The cardstock is from SU and is "close to cocoa" for the brown and "tempting turqouise" for the blue and for the ink as well. I stamped out the coffee rings using SU chocolate chip... I guess you could say I made chocolate coffee! LOL!

So, I know you're going to rush right over and order your own set of these stamps but I hope you get to before the end of the month! Why? They're on sale 25% off until April 30th, that's why! LOL! Actually all of her acrylic stamps are!!

One more thing....as a member of Vicki's, or Queen Kat, design team I also post to her blog! So this card, along with others, have made thier debut already over there. Would you like to see them for yourself? Here's a link to her blog, Queen Kat's Blog! I put some really cute ones up today that will make thier way over here soon!
