Happy Birthday Dear Neighbor!

I am so far behind on posting - good grief!  So am going to try to get back on track.  I have had some health challenges (don't we all) but will make a concerted effort to get some consistency back.  I have been continuing to make cards and bake a little and take photos, but I just have not converted all of those efforts to posts!  I am committed to getting back on track.

So here we go!

This card showcases one of the newer designs from Graciellie Designs.  She has several new ones with coffee themes and I love them all.  And it's perfect because my neighbor absolutely LOVES coffee in a way that most of us do not experience.  When she has a cup of coffee, she drinks it out of a little cup and you can bet it's an espresso - simple and pure.  We went to a local coffee shop the other day and she ordered 4 shots of espresso!!!  I would have been bouncing off the walls if I had ingested that!  OMG!!  I love coffee, but I love the lattes and macchiatos and even a simple black cup of coffee - but on the light or blonde side.  I guess that makes me a bit of a wimp, but I am not a dark roast fan.  Anyway...... when I saw the saying "saying extra caffeinated wishes" along with the coffee cup full of flowers - I knew it was the perfect combination for her!



This was printed on Crafter's Companion watercolor paper
with a laser printer and cut out with the Silver Bullet Platinum.

In the closeup, you can see some of the watercolor detail.
I used Zig Clean and Color brush markers on watercolor paper.
The teacup is covered in clear Sparkle Pen and 
then with Glossy Accents to make it appear more real.
I love the vividness of the colors.
