Friends and Lattes

Im not a coffee drinker but I love sentiments in this set from Treehouse stamps. I think the polka dot cup is cute too! I made this card for todays color challenge. Pink pirouette, kiwi kiss, and choc chip are the colors for today.

I colored the coffee image using the gamsol magic technique. I used copic warm gray no.1 to ground my image. I made my dp using the coffee bean stamped tone on tone on kiwi kiss and added tri-dots with my choc chip marker. The chocolate satin ribbon is from Joanns. The prima is one Ive had forever! I got them from Eclectic Paperie. I colored the prima w/copic marker and the color really looks off in the pic for some reason. The layout is this weeks OCC sketch challenge.

After we finally got to FL we had a fabulous time! The trip there took ALL day!LOL! We had probs with our car about an hour from home. So we spent 1/2 the day at a garage. I was so proud of the kids for being so good with having to sit for sooo long! Saturday made the whole trip! We went and watched the sun set on the beach and the kids were running along the beach and finding shells. They had a blast and I took LOTS of pics!LOL! Have a great day!
