Skidding in under the wire.

That's me.  My inspiration works on it's own schedule but today I had to light a fire under it.  Actually this card has been tumbling in my brain and came out fairly close to how I imagined it.  I say under-the-wire because tomorrow is the last day to submit a card to my friend Jen's card sketch over at Paper Artists Online, AKA: PAO.

Jen's sketches always stretch me.  I had a great time with this one and even...well kind of...stayed close to the sketch.  The sketch's main focus was a banner.  Being a coffee geek I chose to use coffee cups for the banner.  I stamped the JudiKins background swirls stamp on Kraft card stock with aqua and brown inks.  Die-cut coffee cups are Memory Box.  Cup border is an old favorite of Paula Best's.  French press pot is from Just for Fun and the Coffee Break is a clear stamp that I have no name on.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Fabulous! You are the die-cut Queen!

  2. I love the papers you chose for this card.......... they give me a feeling of warmth :-)

  3. This is such an inventive interpretation of the sketch. Love the colors and the Paula Best stamps. Very very creative.
