Confessions of an Addict - FMS #100

Hello Everyone,

My name is Carolyn and I have a confession.  I am an Addict, please let me elaborate.

Today's post is for  Freshly Made Sketches for their 100th sketch challenge.  I really liked this cool sketch and an idea immediately formed.  I am an addict, not just an SU junkie, but also a Coffee Addict/Lover.  I can't start the day without coffee.  I can't get through the day without more of the stuff and when our Annual Catalogue was released I was excited to see a stamp set that I knew I was absolutely going to be buying that fitted me to a T.  It's called Perfect Blend and that's what I'm using on today's card.

Here is the sketch

I love my cute new stamp and haven't had it all that long, but I had a personal challenge to use this set for my very next card after talking with a friend about it last night, as I hadn't inked it yet.  It just so happens that it's today's post I can use it on and the timing of the sketch is perfect.  I am a Lover of coffee.   No, it's more than that, I am a definite Addict.  Yes I'm not ashamed to admit it, and also love this new dsp that arrived with my order called Modern Medley, so that is how this card came about.

I love all the patterns of the Designer Series Paper pack, and it's not often I can say that about a pack of dsp.  There's usually a few sheets that I struggle to use.  The little hearts were punched with my Owl Builder punch from Real Red card and the coordinating cardstock colours here are Basic Black and Very Vanilla.
Let me remind you again, the stamp set is called Perfect Blend.  It's the perfect set for addicts, sorry Lovers of coffee like me.  The sentiment has been punched out with the Artisan Label punch, a very versatile shape too.

Come and have a closer look at my coffee cup, it's soooooo cute.

Thanks very much for stopping by, and if you call in home to me, you are welcome to join me for a coffee.  I'm savouring the aroma now!
