Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop-Day 3

People often ask, “What jumpstarts your creativity?”.  Now  people usually reply with answers like an inspiration photo, or a challenge sketch, but not me.  I am motivated by the desire to feel less guilty about my stash, by using something that has never come out of the package.  Such is the case with today’s card.  I had to have that die of a toaster and toast, but really, it lacks the versatility of the dies I usually gravitate toward (thank you, Captain Obvious!). I found it in my stash, and decided it had to be used…… today.  I paired it up with a coffee cup from some Stampin Up paper that was sitting on my desk.    The hunt was then on to find a sentiment that captured the feel of the little breakfast scene.   I like the look of the metallic toaster and it just might show up again paired with a metallic looking expresso maker or a French press coffee pot.   Look at that, that little toaster is versatile after all.
