Colour Q #219 and PS - Anything Goes

A frosty hello. BRRRR. It's cold here today -- supposed to warm up to the 60s by late this week and I, for one, can not wait. Although I will trade any of it for sunshine. Yeesh. Just one glance out the window makes me want to sleep! Hee hee.

I was so busy and rushed last week, running errands what felt like all day every day! (It drives me crazy sometimes. I know it's Christmas making it worse than normal.)

Yesterday I made this card for my uncle. I based it off of one I'd made before and loved, but I wanted to go with more masculine colors. It's hard to imagine my big, gruff (Favorite) uncle opening a card with pink lace ribbon on it. Ha. Although, I might have got a kick out of that. :) (We love to aggravate in this family.)

I went with the Colour Q colors for inspiration.

I am also linking up to this week's Paper Smooches Anything Goes SPARKS challenge since I used my Cyber Café stamp set. (Uncle is a coffee lover, too.)

Here is my quick little card:
I layered a piece of Olive DP from my CTMH Victory kit (love this set and I'm still hoarding pieces of it!) I stamped the coffee mugs on DP from a Glitz Designs Sunshine In My Soul 6x6 pad, trimmed them out and layered on with foam tape. I did stamp the plates and steam prior to taping down the mugs. The sentiment from Sentiment Sampler was stamped on each mug (masking) prior to taping, as well. I rounded a corner and tied on the brown twine before I taped the cardstock panel onto the card base. -- just a fun little card!
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
