Take Life One Cup At A Time…..
Life can be really crazy and this little hedgehog mirrors my thoughts of being in a hammock, just drinking some coffee or tea, if you please. I’ve been collecting stamps since 1987 which I suppose, dates me a little bit. I pulled out this Penny Black stamp from 2000 “Nap Time” (I got this stamp back in Guam). It’s so nice outside today, I felt like I could be in a hammock and take a nap! This little hedgehog is me today.
The Penny Black Stamp does not have a cup on it so I borrowed a cup from another Penny Black stamp set “Mocha Moments” from 2015. I got it from Simon Says Stamp. I used my CTMH ink pads and a watercolor brush to color this. I need to do this more often. I have a wonderful collection of stamps that bring me smiles as I remember why I got them.
I stamped with Memento Ink on the CTMH Watercolor Paper (which really does make a difference). On the cup, I colored it in and then went over the heart with the CTMH Shimmer Brush (like Wink Of Stella but way better for a few reasons – mainly more juice for less money)! I put Liquid Glass over the heart and coffee to make them stand out a little more.
I’m showing this image for my friend Connie Estes who is a good friend from Guam. Her husband Tim was a bee keeper (as well as my personal locksmith because I kept losing my keys) before he passed recently. I got this stamp in Guam and the bee reminds me of the awesome friendship I made there. Connie and Tim both LOVED their coffee. Tim leaves a big space here on Earth. On the inside of the card, I used another sentiment from the “Mocha Moments” set.
I bet you all can guess who will be getting this card. =)
