In Your Cups

     I've been working very hard at getting something done for the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop but each time, this was the kind of thing I found!  Obviously, I share my home with (two) too many felines.  :-D


I based this card on the sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesday
but I did take a couple of small liberties.


     The image came from Sami Stamps but the silly sentiment is my own.  I colored that image with my ProMarkers, then die cut it with a Stitched Rectangle die from Die-namics.  I cut another, larger piece for the mat.  All the polka dot papers were leftovers found in my stash and I tied the striped bow with a snippet of ribbon.

     I decided to keep it relatively CAS so it could be used for a masculine card.

     That's all I have for today. Thanks for visiting.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
