It's a Mysterious Cup of Coffee! :)



Holy Catfish! It's an actual blog post!! ;)   I am WAY behind in crafting and blogging - life is full steam ahead with no chance of slowing 'til the New Year :(

However, I am so excited to be in this round of Mystery Stampers!!  This month, our hostess of the mystery swap was the sweet Terry and she sent us this fantastic image from MFT called a la modes "miss you a latte" :)   What is a mystery swap, you might wonder?  It's a swap on SCS that sends out the same image to all the swappers and we create a card based on that one image - each card being unique and different but oh so fun!  This one especially tickled me being that I'm a huge Starbucks fan {yep, went on a 4 month hiatus until the Pumpkin Spice Lattes returned and eh, what can a girl do :)}





I wanted my card to be fun and festive - just as my S'Bux is for me!  If you have ever seen me get mine through the drive-through window, I usually drive off shouting "wooohooo!" :)  So I kept the papers fun and carried it over to the inside of my card ~ using a sentiment from Kraftin' Kimmie :)  And yes, I used buttons!  Lots + lots of buttons!  Hopefully whomever ends up with these in the swap won't mind my slight button obsession - they fit in with the design of the paper and I couldn't resist! I made two different designs of this card and this is one sample :)  Thank you, Terry, for a spectacular image to play and create with!

Thanks for stopping by!  If I haven't already been by to see you today, I will be superbly soon!!  


Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
