Coffee Blessings

Welcome

I have been wanting to give some encouragement to someone going through a difficult time.  The Coffee Lovers Blog hop is the ideal time, as they love their coffee!


I deliberately kept it CAS as they are not 'fluffy' people. 


The two stamps above are from the  STAMPlorations Anywhere There's Coffee set.  The image was stamped with Memento Rich Coffee ink, and the sentiment with Ranger Espresso, and shaded with my Polychromos


The sentiment (also from STAMPlorations) was die cut in gold card, and on the card base, and the gold inserted into the base.

The white layer was then added to a soft brown card base, and both layers were edged in black ink to give some definition.


I stamped the ODBD Scripture Verse in Espresso in the left of the insert inside the card.

I am linking this to:

Thank you for the words included in your card to your coffee lovers - so appropriate for me at this moment in time. 'God works in a mysterious way his wonders to perform' has never been more appropriate than just now. Thank You Maxine and thank you for your kind words on my log.
God Bless, Net x

The amazing Maxine!! Fabulous that you decided to play along in the coffee blog hop. I love your coffee card. It's always a joy to stop by and say hello. Thanks also for sharing this with us at Word Art Wednesday. I really do hope you're having a great week....feeling well, and keeping creative. I am always SO very grateful for all the sweet comments you leave for me on my blog. It's amazing how God blesses us with friends who are sometimes miles and miles away that we might never meet in person; and yet, they touch our lives. I'm so blessed to have your blog friendship, Maxine. God bless you today and always.

Hi Maxine, brrr, a chilly one today. With my Peonie card I did the water panel first, die cut it. Printed, coloured and fussy cut the stamp from Beccy and adhered it to the panel.xx

Ellibelle said...

A perfect CAS card Maxine! Good coffee is essential :-)
Would you believe my favorite coffee is the one I brew myself ... I only like the way I make my coffee, not a fan of starbucks or other coffee shops. So I am definitely a picky coffee drinker!
Beautiful verse inside!

Brenda said...

What a fabulous card Maxine! I love the coffee mug with the saying on it. The inside scripture is the perfect encouragement card for someone who is struggling. Well done! Hugs, Brenda

Kathy Klersy said...
