Coffee....sweet elixir of life

My family know there is no talking to Mummy in the morning before her coffee. First coffee then words.
So naturally the Kraft Plus challenge was calling me this month...Kraft plus a gorgeous coffee inspired mood board. Love!

First step coffee. I brewed a nice dark cup of coffee then set about splashing and painting it onto my background. I followed that with some stamping with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in brown using an alpha  to stamp out some coffee inspired words and also some coffee rings from a Darkroom Door stamp. It looked very effective (and smelled great too).

But as you can see it was mostly covered in the end.

I used lots of bits and pieces from my stash including the large coffee cup wood veneer from Flutterby Designs. I had been saving it for a while now - it's just too cute.

A little typing to finish my title..."There is no better therapy than coffee with a friend".

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy scrapping
