Perking Up!

It's that time of year... the weather can't decide what it wants to do; rain, snow, sunshine, cloudy - you know what I mean? This change in weather sure can effect my mood, and it always seems like there is someone around me saying something to make me smile. So... what a better way to say "thanks for the smile" than to give a card!

I stamped the percolator from Fueled by Caffeine (for you youngsters out there, that's a coffee pot. lol) in black (Memento) and colored it with Copic markers. I did the same for the strip of coffee cups.


The sentiment is stamped in black and die cut using a Nestie tag die.

I love this Abby Road line (My Minds Eye), the circles on it and the ribbon all tie together with the coffee cups! Yeaaa!

Do you need perking up?

Well, you always manage to make me smile with your cards! This is so fun and cute! The colors are just a wonderful combination. I know what you mean about the Fall weather. Yesterday raining, today a beautiful day to be outside, tomorrow it's supposed to be raining again. I'm glad I took the time to get out today!
