Coffee Lovers Bloghop Fall/Winter 2022 Day 4

Sometimes making a card is a slow painful process. The end result looks nothing like what was in your mind’s eye or you have one of those oops moments where you drop an open ink pad on your newly finished card. Luckily for me, this card almost made itself. I was looking at a coffee-themed collection of paper that I had forgotten about. The collection had little journal cards with cute sayings written on them. The saying on this card jumped out at me because I remember the days when “iced coffee” just wasn’t a thing. Cold coffee was just something to be discarded or ‘nuked”. That was it. As I was thinking about this, I glanced down at my Christmas stamp box, and what to my wondering eye should appear but a stamp with a reindeer wearing “Joe Cool” glasses from Crackerbox Palace. Put the sentiment and the stamp together with a simple Buffalo Plaid background and I had a simple but cute card. The icing on the cake is that I used my brand new Tim Holtz watercolor pencils to colour the image and I didn’t hate the result. I need some practice to be sure, but I could live with it.
