Coffee Break

Hello Peeps,
Thought I would share this card I made, the image is a Lili of the Valley stamp called Coffee Time which is very apt for me at the moment as I have acquired an addiction....... a coffee addiction . I have always been a tea  kinda girl, but one particularly cold day I decided to have a mid afternoon milky coffee. Little did I realise how quickly I would be hooked, now every day I find myself clock watching until  'COFFEE TIME' .
                      Hello my name is Lottie and I am a COFFEE HOLIC !!!
Any way back to the card, 
I coloured the image with my ProMarkers and die cut it with a Spellbinders Hexagon die then cut another which I ran through a dots EF to make a mat. The swirl is a Die-namics die cut. I embellished with punched flowers also embossed with the dots folder and coloured with DI. The Special Day ticket is a digital image from Pink Gem, and the  backing paper is from Fancy Pants Design which came free with Cardmaking and papercraft magazine, a bit of gross grain ribbon and  voila.

Lastly here is the 'something' I said I would post, that I thought my Blog buddy Darnell would find amusing. This so put me in mind of you Darnell with your funny interpretation of words.
 I don't know if  any of you will recognise yourselves  in any of the below,  but personally I scored a nine!

My Travel Plans for 2014-2015 

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. 
Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I've also never been in Cognito.  I hear no one
recognises you there.

I have, however, been in Sane.   They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there.  I have made several trips there, thanks to my children, friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt.   That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.

One of my favourite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart!  At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

I may have been in Continent, and I don't remember what country I was in.   It's an age thing.   They tell me it is very wet and damp there.

Today is one of the many National Mental Health Days throughout the year.  You can do your bit by remembering to send this e-mail to at least one  unstable person. 
My job is done !
Happy art making
Hugs to all x

  1. Hi Lottie, your card is beautiful, I do love that LOTV stamp and your colouring is wonderful. I do recognise those words, I am sure I have seen them before somewhere........ or perhaps I just recognise being there - lol! They could have been written by Darnell herself, they are so clever. I think I easily score 9 too. Hugs, Anne x

  2. Adorable card, Lottie! There are worse addictions to have - aside from paper crafting ones, of course!

    Thank you for the shoutout! Does that make me the MOST unstable person you know? LOL!

    I love this wordwork and, in fact, it is published under my "Way With Words" tab on my blog. Before you found me, I had done a post about it, too, which was fun because all the readers were chiming in with there own paragraphs to add more "IN" words! You might get a kick out of reading them. I found I couldn't stop thinking of new ones for days afterwards!

    So, you see, you have me pegged just exackly right!! I'm a Wordaholic!! Hugs, Darnell


Thank you for paying me a visit today and leaving your comment and a little crafty happiness. Hugs Lottie x
