Oh for Two More Hands!



Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a great Friday and are looking forward to the great weather we are having here in NC! The eighty's for the next few days sounds great to me!!!


This card was made for a weekly challenge that a few friends do each week over on SCS. We were to make a coffee themed card, use pink and brown, punches, brads and doodling.


When Dawn and I met for coffee and a trip to our LSS a couple of weeks ago, I had this stamp in my hand and put it down because I just couldn't spend any more money... and that unknown to Dawn... she bought it! In my Easter card were several of these stamped images for me! I was so excited... I just had to use it for today's challenge! Thanks so much Dawn!


I used my new nesties for this... love them!!! I colored the image with a combination of Copics and Prisma Pencils because I still don't seem to have the perfect colors of Copics..... it's a collection in progress! After coloring the image I used Diamond Glaze on the mugs to give them a shine. I sponged Close to Cocoa around just about everything. I also used my Stardust Clear Glitter Gel Pen to doodle the coffee wafts, bunny eyes and buttons. I think if you click on the photo to enlarge it you might see the glaze that you can't see in the regular size.


My sentiment is computer generated. These were the first words that came to my mind when I saw this image! I mean two cups is a given for me.... the real question is how many more will it take to get me cranking! LOL! I just know if I had two more hands they'd both be filled with more coffee!!! I used my punches to punch and layer the sentiment. My doodling is the stitching on the pajama top and the polka dots on the bottoms. This was done with a Chocolate Chip Marker.


Here are the materials I used:

Papertrey Chocolate CS as base

SU! Regal Rose matting, sponged with Close to Cocoa

BasicGrey Blush DP

Diamond Glaze

SU! Ribbons

Stardust Clear Glitter Gel Pen

Copics and Prisma Pencils in colors shown, blender stumps, Goo Gone to blend
Just a final note.... I took my photo before I added some "ground" under her feet, and a little halo around her but I just don't have time this morning to take and edit more pics. Maybe later I'll be able to change it out but for now... this will have to do. I think I met all the requirements of the challenge and I hope it brought a smile to your face this morning!
Have a fabulous weekend and take some time to thank God for all He's done for you!
