Caffeine High

Hi. My name is Julie and I am a coffee-holic. I have a serious addiction to the stuff. I started drinking it on a daily basis after my second son was born and I think it might have saved my life. Motherhood can be extremely tiring... and I found out that caffeine gives me just enough of a boost to keep a few brain cells functioning. I'm really glad that it's not illegal. I could be in a world of hurt.

When I was browsing through the Starving Artistamps website, my eyes spied this wired little creature... and I became instantly drawn to him. I think we have a lot in common. :) I look a lot like this most mornings:
This weekend was VSN (Virtual Stamp Night) over at Splitcoast. I wanted to make about 20 cards and just lock myself in my craft room all weekend... but - 2 kids and a tornado-hit house made me re-prioritize. (I did get to spend part of the weekend with my best friend shopping at some thrift stores... and that was almost as fun as making 20 cards.) I did manage to sneak in a few minutes to whip up one card for VSN though! This challenge was called "New Love" & we had to craft using ONLY new supplies. (ones that we've had for less than 2 months) AND... each card can only take us 45 minutes or less to create!

I used some of my new Snorkel paper from Cosmo Cricket... my new bright orange Flower Soft... some new Claudine Hellmuth paint... and Zot (my coffee-loving creature). The layout is based on the NEWest CPS Sketch #104.
Here's a close up of my little Copic-colored critter. The paint worked great as an adhesive for my Flower Soft!

Make sure you check back in Monday morning for my next 2 Sketches 4 You project!!! :)
