Time for tea?

Here's another UFO - unfinished object.  All it really needs is a sentiment, so perhaps I'll leave it until the right moment appears to give it away?  I made this card while at the escape2create retreat a few months back, late, late one night (when I tend to do my best crafting)  I used the "Morning Cup" stamp set, and my crayons and markers to colour the images, stamped in Stazon.  I also used a mask to stamp the coffee cup several times as if there were a cluster of cups on the worktop.  There certainly was plenty of coffee consumed on these late nights, with grateful thanks to Meredith for her fabbo Nespresso machine and the #10 capsules with extra KICK!  They were so yum that I had to remind myself that I have a perfectly good coffee machine that makes great coffee, already sitting on my kitchen bench...  And that I don't *really* need a Nespresso.  Much.

Back to the card - it uses the fluffy delightfullness of Melon Mambo Pom Pom trim, get it before it's gone from the Autumn Winter Mini catalogue, available in Daffodil and Tangerine as well. The card base is Baja Breeze, and the patterned paper is Elegant Soiree.  There's a bit of lifting and popping with dimensionals, and a bit of tearing and shredding with the distressing tool from the cutter kit, and that's it.  Hope you like, off to make some cards for a swap!
