What would happen if I didn't have my morning coffee in the morning? I'd probably be pretty cranky....but I'm sure I would survive....there's always tea! LOL. Something about a nice warm beverage is just comforting in the morning. I use to get up a little bit before the kids so I could enjoy a cup in peace but then they just started getting up at the same time so I thought it best to get that extra half hour of sleep.
Anyhow, I saw this Card Pattern sketch and thought it would make a lovely coupon card for a friends birthday. And then my Verve order arrived in the mail and I set to work. Here's what I came up with. I know it's really neutral without any colour but it was meant to remind us of rich dark coffee. The pocket is hand stitched on the the card so that I didn't have to worry about glue attaching to the coupons. It also allowed me to make the coupons a bit bigger. The sponging is done in close to cocoa and while not the best sponge job it works.
Hope you're enjoying a nice relaxing cup as you read this. Have a fabulous day!
