Happy Monday everyone! I apologise for neglecting my blog for the past couple of months, but as most of you know, our daughter has been in hospital and had to undergo 2 emergency operations, both under general anaesthetic. After lots of complications, she is now home. We still have a far way to go, and even if her healing goes perfectly, she won't be back at school for at least another 3 or 4 weeks, but it is such a relief not to be in the hospital anymore.

For my card, I used elements from both stamp sets and both die sets. I started off by making the background for my card using the largest die from the previously released SugarCuts - Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles die set. I stamped the 2 different sized coffee rings from the Caffeine Addict 4x8" stamp set in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, but used the second-generation stamping technique to achieve a stained effect. I then cut out the coffee-to-go cup elements using the SugarCuts - Coffee To Go Cup die set, stamped the "caffeine addict" and the "straw" from the Caffeine Addict 4x8" stamp set in Memento Cottage Ivy ink, assembled it and fixed it over the coffee stains. I cut out the smallest coffee bean and the "latte" sentiment using the SugarCuts - Coffee Words die set from brown card (even though it looks black here, haha!) and added them. Finally, a couple of sentiment and bean stamps from the Espresso Yourself 4x4" stamp set and it was done!
Would you like to win the Caffeine Addict stamp set? All you need to do is leave a comment on today's post over on the SPD blog telling us about your favourite “warm” beverage! It’s THAT easy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
