Coffee Fix

It seems like Blogger still acting up?! I added a lot of text to this and the last post today and it is gone!! Grrr... guess I start over? I will never get caught up if this keeps happening! I also had to go check where I entered my cards because I noticed that my entry had disappeared. That would have been ok if the collections had not been closed!

Coffee - one of my necessities. I love to get my fresh hot cup of coffee with flavored cream and sit quietly thinking of what to write on a blog or what next to create. Half the time I browse through other blogs and follow links to their DT or links to even more blogs - it is very inspiring! Even though I don't have all the new gadgets or as many stamps or embellies, I think I can still make a decent card ;o) I truly like the CAS though there are some absolutely stunning card photos out there with tons of stuff on them that still don't look too busy but you can't stop looking at them! LOL This card is a little more than CAS, but I feel it is still clean and simple to an extent. I got really lucky for this card inspiration - the colors (which are not showing up just right on these pictures so I might have to retake them in natural light) were in my favorite category from PPC, and PIO had the "funny bone" that fit this Fairy Knoll digi perfectly. There were a few sketches to choose from but I kept going back to The Secret Crafter sketch even though other sketch challenges were closing sooner. Sometimes things just all fall into place and it sure is nice!

So, on with the card details... The one sided heavy paper really goes with another paper that you will see properly combined later, but it went well . I actually have a coffee bacgkgound paper somewhere but could not find it and my printer is acting up so I could not print one
