Latte cup

Good evening everyone!  Well I finally went to the doctors today and figured out why I wasn't getting any better... I was fighting a sinus infection.  So now I've got my antibiotics and will have to let them take effect.  In the meantime I'm tired like crazy and spent the biggest part of the day in bed (other than waiting for 2 hours at the clinic which is pretty fast here actually...).

I have a little card to show you.  It was made super fast since I hardly colored it up. I thought this would be a great card to send over to my stepmom to let her know that I think of her.  She loves her coffee!!!

When Paulette sent us the new set of sentiments for which she wanted some examples I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make a card with the wonderful new digi that I had purchased from Fresh Brewed Designs it's called Latte cup.  I just looooove my lattes!!!!  Well more so when I'm not sick ;)  To make this card I used paper from Childish Things by Fancy pants.  I used some cardstock from Recollections.  I used an embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  The little charm and brad are from my stash.  I paper pieced the digi with some paper that I got over at Pixel scrapper thank you so much Lisa for the information on that site ;)  I fussy cut it out and put it on foam pad to raise it up.

Here's a closer look at the digi and the sentiment.

Here's the set
Take Time To Vintage Image Transfer Set and you can purchase it here.  Perfect for coffee and cat lovers!!!

I followed this sketch to make this card I turned it around and put the sentiment on the other side because I didn't want to cover up the wonderful heart from the cup.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
