Coffee and Friends

I hope you have gotten a head start on your holiday shopping.  I have, and I have most of it done.  However, I still feel 'behind'.  I don't know why.  Maybe its because I saved the hardest few people for last, and I don't have any idea what to get them.  It's a struggle.
Today, over @ Nacho Average Challenge they have a creative sketch challenge for you to try.  I love the simple lines and the large degree of potential.

here is what I created

I used soft suede card stock as my card base.  I like the soft, creamy brown color.  I used soft sky card stock for the main panel.  I used the Postcard stamp set to create the postcard, and inked it in soft suede classic ink.  I used Sweater Weather DSP for the trio of banners, and for the coffee cuff.  I just love the soft cozy colors and patterns in this collection {smile}.  I did a quick and not straight machine stitch along the left end of the banners.  I added a few pearl jewels, to help soften the whole look.
I used the Perfect Blend stamp set, for the main focus of the card.  I am a huge fan addict of coffee, so it only seems fitting to have coffee with and for everything.  I stamped the to go coffee cup in soft suede classic ink onto very vanilla card stock and then used my detail scissors to fussy cut it out.
I created a button for the coffee cuff out of clay and the button & blossom mold.  I stamped the sentiment in chocolate chip classic ink, where the address goes.   I created my postage stamp with daffodil delight classic ink, and the Postage Due stamp set.
Thank you for stopping by.  Now, it's your chance to create something wonderful using our sketch @ NAC.  Can't wait to see what you create!
