On the Eighth Day...

The last couple of weeks have been so crazy & busy... so I decided that I needed a little craft therapy to de-stress. I love reading Dawn McVey's blog & decided to try out her color challenge.


I've had these Whipper Snapper images for a few weeks now & finally pulled them out & inked them up. I LOVE this sentiment! LOL! I'm a coffee freak (It all started after delivering my second child who had colic for his first few months of life. I think it saved both of our lives!) ;)

The sketch is from Jen delMuro's SFYTT. Fun stuff!

I wanted to add a strip of "newsprint" to go along with my coffee... and without realizing it, picked just the right piece! The story is about Sunday School. Love it when things like that happen! I added a Jenni Bowlin button & a handmade ruffle. (I colored a strip of Papertrey Ink linen vellum with a Copic marker to match & then gathered it & stitched it in place.) I gave the coffee a coat of Glossy Accents too... but I forgot to take a close up. You'll have to trust me on that one! ;)

Thanks for coming to visit! :)
