So, how do you know....

....when you've had enough coffee.....

(click on photo to enlarge)
Hi everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I ~LOVE~ this fun sentiment from Pink By Design...it pretty much says it all!

"If your not shaking
you need more coffee"

I'm thinking I should have this one tattooed on me somewhere!  Ok, let me tell you about my card:
* Printed papers are by We R Memory Keepers - "Tiffanys" paper stack
* I used kraft paper for the coffee cup and scraps for the accent pieces
*Lots of "Chocolate" ink from CTMH
*MS punch for the scalloped edges
* Coffee cup image is from the "Love You A Latte" cartridge cut at 5inches
*Twine is from "Jillibean Soup"
* I machine stitched the edges with dark brown thread

And this fun sentiment....

is from the Pink By Design stamp set "Days Like This".

I love this card...but then, I'm addicted to coffee!

Anyway, before I let you go, I want to share some news with you.  In yesterday's mail I received my July issue of Cricut Magazine.  If you have yours, I want you to open with me to pages 96 and 97.  Now...look on page 97, about half way down the page.  Yep...that's my name....yikes!  I am so excited...my first published card!  I want to thank two special people that helped me get that card published (now I feel like I'm at the Academy Awards).  My sweet hubby who never fails to encourage and support me in whatever endeavor I venture into. And my sweet blogging friend Theresa (better know as Scrapper 69) who coached me through the process with great words of kindness and encouragement!  I would probably have never tried again after my first rejection if not for these two! *I don't handle rejection well...lol*

Ok, so thanks for letting me share my fun card and my special news with all of you today!  I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon!

Until next time
