3M: Coffee time!

Hello, friends!

Hard to believe it's been a month since I've posted!
And it is October, after all ....
fitting since I had to dust the cobwebs off my blog today :)

It's been a whirlwind here in South Florida
 (and not just due to hurricane Matthew)
with life events, busy-ness and juggling so much.
 I have felt every bit of God's grace and mercy working in my life,
and I'm pulling from the old saying: 
 "Trusting God won't make the mountain smaller,
but it will make it easier to climb." 

I'm officially creating through the chaos :)

 Since today is the 9th of the month,
that means it's time for the 3 Musketeers to post our cards.
This month, Barb was our hostess and send us the incredible
Tim Holtz "Fresh Brewed" coffee blueprint stamp and matching die cut outs.
How perfect for me!
It had my name all over it :)

You may notice that my take on the card has shades of green ...
it's not only my favorite color 
but I'm channeling my favorite coffee with a a green siren logo :)
I paired it with some cardstock and dsp in shades of similiar greens,
and used the embossed coffee cardstock as a backdrop,
added some baker's twine and wooden dots for dimension.        
The inside is very plain but you can see a bit of it peeking out here:

This week I'll be sharing a lot of 'back logged' cards with you,
as well as some new cards celebrating the season upon us.
I hope you can stop in for a visit ♥
Meanwhile, be sure to visit Barb and Jeanette 
and see what they made with this identical image.

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
