Coffee does a morning good!

I didn't start drinking coffee until I was about 40 years old. I don't know why I waited to long but now I absolutely love it. My favorite brand is Gevalia but in a pinch I'll go for Folgers. My coffee has to be flavored or at least I have to have flavored creamer. I always use Equal to sweeten it. Give me a cup of coffee and some kind of pastry first thing in the morning and I am in heaven!

The image is a freebie from Saturated Canary. I colored it with Copics and cut it out with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4. I added a bit of Stampendous "Shabby white embossing enamel" and Tim Holtz Distress ink to highlight the image even more. The papers are from my stash and always around because I often make coffee themed cards and send them to my coffee-drinking friends and family. I used gold foil paper and an EK Success edge punch to had some contrast and interest. I roll the flowers from the Close To My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and also added one from Wild Orchids. The sentiment is from Create with TLC and was cut with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Pennant die. Finally I added the coffee pot charm.
