Daily Grind

The sketch this week from Crazy 4 Challenges:

The Color Challenge from Diva Coffee Break Designs:

An inspiration challenge from Saturday Spotlight:
Finally my card!  When I saw the sketch and the inspiration challenges I have to admit that I was tempeted to repost this card hehehe, but I didn't.  I used my Cutting Cafe images that I have had for a bit, it wasn't until I found out about this for using some digital images that I was able to really use them!  Now as I have said many times I am not a coffee drinker but love everything coffee, including the smell so I scented this with Cappuccino Card Scents.  These papers (Cocoa Cafe) are long ago retired from CTMH but I still love them.

Love it Laurel - love how you used the coffee beans right on there! I'm with ya, can't drink it, but love the smell - it's a homey smell I think, comforting because my parents have always drank coffee.
I also love those papers, and lucky me still have lots left!

Great job, Laurel! Thanks for sharing that link. The tips will come in handy for sure.

Not a coffee drinker here, either, but I do like the smell, so I can just imagine how lovely this card smells. About as great as it looks.
