House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #43.- Caffeine Crash

This is me!

I've crashed and I can't get up! Just kidding...But I do have to tell you...a LOT of caffeine is consumed during harvest!

I made this card for this weeks House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #43...a sketch from the ladies at 2RedBanana's. I had to fudge just a wee bit to squeeze in the kaiser pearls, but otherwise I stuck to the sketch.

I know all of us "harvest type" people feel like Mr. Biggly Gruffie! Give us a LOT of caffeine and we perk right up! My caffeine of choice is always pepsi or cocoa...no coffee for me...never acquired the taste...but love the smell!

Okay, the rest of the story...

All the cups are cut out and put on pop dots-- as is the waste basket. This makes for a fun card with lots of dimension. The inside is finished off with a white mat embellished with a small strip of the red polka dot DP matted on a scalloped piece of gable green.

-------------------------

Stamps: Biggly Gruffie stamp named "Attack of the Caffeine Crash" OR1048 by Stampabilities.

Cardstock: SU! Specialty DP, Gable Green, Basic Black

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Misc: Nesties-Circle and Scallop Circle, Dimensionals, SU scallop punch for the inside of the card, Kaiser pearls

Pin It!

This is just the greatest! The added dimension really makes it. This is one stamp I "must" get -- my sister says she is going to refrain from caffeine starting July 1.
