Where's the Coffee???

     This is my second post today.  Be sure to scroll down to see the first one. :-D
     This is how my mornings start -wanting to know "Where's the Coffee?"  Unfortunately, my fur babies have never volunteered to get the coffee made before I get up so the answer is, "It's not made until you get up and make it!"  lol

     This is the latest Progressive image from Limited Runs.

I actually used an old sketch, but a favorite,
 from The Outlawz to inspire my design.  I wish I could 
give you a link to the sketch but I loved it so much, I printed it and don't
remember what week it was used other than it was in 2016.

     This time I colored with a combo of ProMarkers and polychromos pencils, and I cut it by hand.  I made the background dp by pasting the image over and over and printing an entire sheet of them, then trimmed it to size.  I added the hand cut image to it, using dimensional dots.  I printed and hand cut the sentiment, inking the edges of it before adding it on dimensional dots.

     I found a piece of striped ribbon (Really Reasonable Ribbon) in my stash and wrapped the dp piece with it.  The bow is one of my hand-sewn bows, dyed with ProMarker to get that shade of light blue.  A nice, CAS card which can be used for either a guy or a gal.

     That's it for today and I have a really busy rest of the week so I don't know if I'll have another post before Friday.  But then, I'll give you another Twofer day with DT cards for both Colour Crazy, where I'm a GDT through June, and my regular QKR Stampede project.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
