Coffee Goodness {Mojo #203}

I created this card using Debbie Carriere's sketch for Mojo Monday sketch #203.
Debbie is a fellow CTMH Consultant, so I had to play along.  ;)

I used a Verve set that finally arrived a little while ago from my very first (and only) Mojo win from a couple of months ago.  With the Canadian postal strike, it took forever to arrive.  For my win, I picked a coffee set called Delightful & Delicious.  I paired it up with another new B&T, this one from the Elemental paper pack.

I also had some coffee beans in my kitchen cupboard that were just screaming to be used on my card.  I adhered those with Liquid Glass.

Overall, I really like the sketch and how my card turned out.


I have been thinking a lot about how I've been spending my scrappy time.  I've decided to participate in less challenges and blog hops.  I recently joined a blog hop called Paper Trail that I will continue to do, but the rest are ones that I can join in whenever I want, so I may do those every once in a while.  Instead I am going to focus on getting more of my scrapbooking done -- I have a lot of photos sitting in boxes!  And I will be focusing more on creating for workshops, too.

I'll still be posting everything I create, as I always do.  I do have some cards done that I need to post, so as time allows, I'll be doing that over the next while.  We're hoping to have our high-speed internet up and running by tomorrow.... fingers crossed.... which will make a huge difference in my time spent on uploading, editing and posting my work.  :)

For now, happy creating!  :)

Good for you Vicki! It is difficult to do it all without other aspects of your life suffering...I try to incorporate all my challenges into my own pages that need to be done, but the process of uploading and creating blog posts are time consuming! Can't wait to see some layouts!

What a really cute card and stamp set. I LOVE the addition of the beans. Good for you, Vicki! I pull back now and again, too. I've been doing dt work, but have participated in very few challenges over the summer. We all need a break now and again!

Gorgeous card, as always, Vicki. And good for you for doing what you have to do! I'm sure your scrapbooking creations will be every bit as lovely and inspiring as your cards. :)
