A 'latte' love for the perfect blend
Hello and welcome! In keeping with the theme of today's card, I'm offering you a complimentary cup of cyber coffee and a magic muffin-it can be your favorite kind if you like!
This is not a typical anniversary card which is quite fitting since it is going to a very special couple! Regulars of my blog will remember I worked with my sister on some wedding goodies for my nephew and his wife. They were so easy going and fun to work with, and almost always had a coffee drink of some type in their hands. No wonder we got along so well! Their anniversary isn't until later this year, but the idea of a coffee themed card popped into my head and here I am completing a card well ahead of schedule! Yippee!! The inside is a sentiment I made on the computer. It says "to a perfect blend. May you have a 'latte' more happy years together!"
I used my Blendabilities markers on this and really was happy with the results-not perfect but pretty good by my normal standards! I used the rich razzleberry set since their wedding colors were purple and silver. I dropped the silver and replaced it with coastal cabana since I didn't want it to be a total flashback to their wedding, not to mention that I really liked the colors together!
If you haven't made the leap to Blendabilities or the similar copics, I can tell you that they work so well for coloring images. I love that the Blendabilities come in sets of three markers taking all of the guess work out of choosing colors for shading. I am not very good at that! The set of three also makes them an affordable option if you want to try out the alcohol based markers.
Well, we are preparing for the annual police/kids camp and I have to go grocery shopping for 20 hungry boys so I better get out of here and head to one of my least favorite places-Walmart. Wish me luck and I hope you have a marvelous day! I'd like to 'espresso' my feelings and thank you a 'latte' for stopping by! OK... I'm done now!
