Coffee and Mice

I had very mixed feelings about the image I used on my card I am sharing today. I am terrified of mice. Always have been. When we saw the movie Ratatouille, I had to close my eyes for part of the movie because it kind of scared me. LOL! And it is only a child's cartoon movie. Well as frightened as I am with mice, I fell in love with this adorable image from Sweet and Sassy Stamps. So as long as Cocoa keeps a safe distance from my coffee, we will be okay. If you adore this image as much as I do, you can find it here. It is called Cocoa's Latte.

Sweet and Sassy Stamps is a company I just recently came across. There are so many fabulous images for different tastes available. And a very nice selection of digi images. Now that I have a laser printer I've been searching for companies with a nice selection of professional looking digi images and Sweet and Sassy Stamps fits that need very nicely. My latest love is Rhubarb Bear. I've bought almost all of the Rhubarb Bear images released and have been coloring up a storm with my Copic markers. I want to try to get some cards made soon so I can share.

I decided to go with a frilly feminine look for the card. I used some paper from the Basic Grey Olivia 6x6 pad to paper piece the mug. I also used the same pad for all the other papers on the card. I love the look of doilies and found some at Michael's in the cake decorating aisle. you get a lot for a few bucks. The beautiful lace and flower trim I found at a General Store in East Earl, PA near Shady Maple. I cannot wait to go back in September so I can buy a ton more. They had such a great selection and very reasonably priced. I even did some sewing on this card. I love that look, especially when using lace on a card.

I hope you are staying cool where ever you are. It is in the 90's once again here in South East PA. I am sooooo ready for Winter and SNOW! :o)

I just love Cocoa images. You have paper pieced this to perfection! I sure wish you could come to L&L when we do a stamp get together. We have a grand time! Korin from Sweet and Sassy coordinates the group.
