One more cup of coffee


Morning!  I am feeling decidedly pleased with myself about this card - you know why?  Well I am going to be totally honest with you and admit that it took me 4 years to learn how to tie a half decent bow! I know I just couldn't comfortably do one without tying them a hundred times before giving up.  So since I got the hang of them I challenged myself to learn how to do a double bow - eek!  Thankfully after watching several  YouTube instructional videos I decided to have a go and I have to say I really like the effect.  I would love to hear if you too have conquered any crafting demons. 

This card makes me think of chocolate coffee cake and luckily for me choccy is theme over at moving along with the times.  Have a great day and see you soon x

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: a slice of life (hostess), cheer & wishes and four frames.  Ink: whisper white craft ink, early espresso and crumb cake.  Card stock: early espresso and crumb cake.  Accessories: crumb cake seam binding, linen thread and crumb cake flower button.
