Relax with a cup of joe

What a long week!!! Boy....take a week off...and I am ready for a long weekend! Last week I was very lucky and won some free images from Modern Sugar Boulevard and wanted to use one for a card today. This card is inspired by Jen, I thought of her daily coffee flavor when I made this!

MSB is also having a challenge this week to use glitter; I just added a little glitter to the mug so I guess it really doesn't quite qualify! The comfy chair (any Monty Python fans out there?) was made by printing the image twice, once on white card stock and another time on DSP. Then I just cut and paper pieced together!

So today I am going to make my own wrapping paper! woohoo!! I know, shouldn't be that tough...but I will share the results!

images: Modern Sugar Boulevard
paper: SU Summer Sun, SU! Good Morning Sunshine

technique: colored pencils, Atyou Spica glitter pen
