Sunday Sip...Aromatic Posies...


Hey there coffee loving friends.
Happy Sunday Coffee Loving Cardmakers.  It’s Kerry here and I’m excited to get back to some sort of normalcy and calm after a wild and hectic few months.  I hosted a Fun Stampers Journey Booth at the Scrapbook Expo in Chantilly, VA this weekend and met many of my fellow Coffee Loving papercraft friends!  If you’re reading this I’m waving HI and giving another hug!  It was a blast, and today I’m just catching up and cleaning.  Ughh…
I decided I would post a little aromatic card today.  Sometimes I like to send cards that contain a scent that brings back warm memories and this card does just that.  Waking up to a fresh Perkolator pot of coffee on a Sunday morning at my Grandma and Grandpas was always a fun treat when I lived with them during my college years and I loved sitting with them at their formica table sipping coffee and listening to the church service online…Oh memories…  So the aroma of this card…Memories!
I glued some coffee beans to the inside of my flower (created using the Summer Bouquet steel rule die and the leaves from Flower Swirls set that will be available July 1).   I created the background using our new Liquid Color which is an amazing concentrated watercolor.  I love that I can squirt a few drops in a mister and spritz some yummy color on my paper.  I stamped the little circle elements from Laura Williams’ doodled stamp set that is launching through FSJ on July 1 called Hello Love. 
I hope you’re enjoying the hop so far.  I’m off today to do the rounds and will start creating a few more cards for the hop too.  See you around!
If you LOVE this sketch, please consider playing along with the sketch.  I’d love to see how you incorporate your Coffee Love with it!
Hop along with us!
