I Don't Drink Coffee!!

I really don't! I drink TEA instead - however, on Day 75 of the 365 card blog, the challenge was to create a card with coffee! WELL, this was certainly a challenge for me because I don't have any coffee sentiments or stamps - since I just don't drink coffee. I have PLENTY of tea stamps and sentiments - but not coffee. However, when my frugal friend Lori came to 'play' yesterday - she encouraged me in a MOST frugal way. We took the off cut from the top note and we split it and each created a card with it. I used my piece to create a window with 'lace' curtains half way pulled up. I then took another piece of the edge punched cardstock and made a 'table' adding 'legs'. I had these cups that someone had stamped for me years ago - and they looked a little closer to coffee cups than my other stamps, so I used them for the cups. Now, inside I stamped the sentiment: 'Let's Do Lunch'. The card is on an angle, so that is why it looks like everything is sliding - I may take a picture, or scan it again on my computer, but for now - this is what I have to show you.
