Thanks a Latte...

No one can understand the truth until he drinks of coffee's frothy goodness. ~Sheik Abd-al-Kadir

This week's challenge on A Muse Addicts is to make a Holiday Thank You...this is not "In Your Face Holiday"...but it is for a friend who gave me a Moxie Java GC for Christmas...and it is Sort of Red and Green. OMG, as I am writing this I realized I made the cup a Starbucks cup....she gave me a Moxie card!!! OH WELL!

I stamped the Madeira stamp on the back of the Madeira Red card, then I stamped the To Go Cup on the back of the card and on a scrap of Kraft Paper and White paper. I cut the lid out of the white and a section of the middle out of the Kraft. On the "sleeve" I used the end of a colored pencil to "stamp" a dot of olive green chalk ink to give it a Starbucks Feel. I also added a touch of Liquid Pearls to the hole in the lid b/c I am Always losing a tad of foam out the top.

Stamps: Madeira, To Go Cup, Coffee Break Set (all a muse)
Paper: Madeira Red A4 Card, Hawthorne Square Card, White CS, Kraft CS
Ink: Cat's Eye Chalk, Timber Brown StazOn
Misc: Liquid Pearls, Twill Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!!
