Hello crafty peeps and welcome! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we'd like to see tea or coffee design elements on your projects. Here's the card I made:

 the inside:

I was using the now ended Freshly Made Sketch and Color Throwdown for my card. But since the CTD ended by the time this posted, I felt it ok to add a touch of red to my coffee mug**. ☺The back panel was cut from designer paper that I've had for years, then I stamped the coffee rings randomly all over it, stamping off first. The mug was stamped, colored with Marvy Uchida markers and fussy cut. Yet another stamp set I've hoarded and finally used! Go me! LOL!

Now it's your turn to break out those tea cups or coffee mugs, and make pretty stuff with them! Just link up at SHOPPING OUR STASH so we can admire it. While there, do check out the amazeballs creations my teammies made for your viewing pleasure! Thanks for visiting!

** I'm a tea drinker who made a coffee card. I don't even like the smell of coffee. Go figure.
