I don't do mornings...

but not today!

Hello friends on a Monday Morning!

It is our bank holiday Monday today and it is forecast to be our hottest day of this year here in Britain!! Woot woot!

First of all, welcome to my new follower. I hope this blog will bring you something interesting each time. Thanks for following me.

It was my colleague Kate's birthday yesterday. I just had to make her this card, as the sentiment is so her. Although I am not a big coffee drinker myself  I know the feeling of not having a cup of tea/ coffee in the morning. Here is my card:
It is a clean and simple card. I followed the sketch from the CAS(E) this Sketch! #26 blog.
I've literarily stuck to the sketch. A craft paper stamped with coffee beans is attached across the card. I've stamped the coffee mug and sentiment on a separate piece of small white card. Then paper pieced the coffee mug and coloured the rest with Copic Ciao. Three small gems are added to the top left corner. Finally, the small white card is attached to the card by using foam pads to give some dimension. Here is another photo taken from the side.

I like it and most of all Kate likes it too! I will be back to share some more cards, but for now I am off to the sun! I hope you all enjoy your Monday morning~ See you soon!
