SHOPPING OUR STASH #300 - Caffeine Fix

Welcome friends!
This week at 
we challenge you to make a coffee/tea themed
card or project.
Simple, eh?
Here's the tag I made:

I started by spritzing Glimmer Mist over a stencil. Just look at the shimmer!:

Some paper piecing, sponging and stamping and this tag came 
together pretty quickly.

Now it's your turn! You know you have coffee or tea themed
crafty goodies. Why not use them and link up at Shopping Our Stash?
We'd love to see what you create!
