Coffee with a Friend

Here's my card for Mojo Monday 124. Deviating from the sketch more than I usually do, I had fun with it. What's obvious (but somethin' to say) is the fact that the cup is paper-pieced.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Olive cardstock; Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Mini Deck; Black, Olive, Grey Flannel, and Bamboo ink pads; Flourishes Coffee with Friends stamp set; Stampin' Up Old Olive grosgrain ribbon; Ecru crocheted lace from Wal-Mart; Juniper mini brads; 1-3/4 inch circle punch; 2-inch scallop punch; Sponge dauber; Sanding block; 3M foam mounting tape.

I'm bowling this evening, so I'm trying a scheduled post. If I'm not too pooped or occupied with little guests, I might pop in with another card when I get home.

 I hope you're having a great day! Later ...

This is wonderful Kathi! I LOVE your coffee cup.
I couldn't figure out why you were posting at this time...was hoping you were not home sick or anything..then I read the scheduled post thing. Have fun bowling.

Love this card!! The colors, patterns, paper piecing....it all works great together. I really like this interpretation of the Mojo Monday sketch. BTW I looked for, and found, the cards in Stamp It! that inspired your cards on Monday. I like the addition of the butterfly on the sympathy card:) Also, instead of making a late post on Sunday's card, I wanted to tell you that you did a great job with the Unscripted sketch. There! Three comments for the price of one. Here's hoping you don't feel too cheated?!:)

Wow Kathi, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card! The coffee (well, we all know about my addiction!) and the lace along the lower part of the card - (deep sigh!) - what a wonderful card!

You will see "Sharli" versions of this one!
