>>> 365 Cards Day 75 <<<

Today's challenge is 'Imagine this - Coffee'. The challenge is to either use an image of coffee (cup, beans, etc.) or let an image of it inspire your card. This left me speechless as I don't have any appropriate stamps for this (mental note to acquire one!) Moreover, I'm not a coffee drinker (I do drink it but very rarely). Anyway, I remembered I had hoarded some Starbucks cup holders (which I had used one for a scrapbook page) and an idea formed in my mind. So here's my card:

Patterned paper from Collage Press Jackson Lodge collection. Stamped images from Unity Stamp Company, which incidentally came in the post this morning so couldn't resist using them immediately. Coloured using Promarkers. This card will be given to one of my son's teachers later at the end of the school term just before the summer hols.

TTFN!

Audrey,
What a FANTASTIC idea!! Using those cupholders. I don't DO coffee at all - I 'take' tea instead!! Will have to look for my cupholders and see what I can come up with.
