Coffee & Puppies


Happy Friday!! Today, I'm participating in the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  To see more about this, visit the hop HERE.   I'm featuring a brand new goodie from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps along with a tried and true favorite set!!

Paw-some Pals is a brand new set full of kitty and puppy images to meet all your pet needs!  How sweet is that bull dog? And, those kittens...... I chose to combine the little chihuahua with the coffee cup from  Fill Me Up for a couple of reasons.

I love coffee, but hadn't had any in a good long while, until recently.  When I went through chemotherapy, I stopped a lot of stuff and coffee was one of those things.  As I continue to recover and my body continues to receive God's healing grace, I've started to consider the health benefits of a dark roast once again!  YUM!  I recently went to a fair trade expo and bought a bag of Guatemalan beans.  You guys, this is the BEST coffee!  I've only had it on a few occasions so, it could be an "absence makes the heart grow fonder" situation, but still.........YUM!


I have a not so secret fantasy of having a pocket puppy--a cute little pupper who will fit in the front pocket of my overalls--LOL, I don't really have overalls, but would totally get some if I had a puppy to put in the pocket!  I love this cute little chihuahua for that reason!  I stamped him first and then masked him off and added the coffee cup.  I added some distress ink water coloring around the main image, also coloring the rest with distress inks.  It's my favorite way to color these days.  To finish off my card, I added a tab and some stitching--super simple ways to add that little extra interest!
