Need Coffee!

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  Once I had a couple of cups of my favorite coffee, I was good to go!  Before that, not so much!  I'm popping in to share the project I made for the MayzyArt Challenge #5 - Anything But A Card.   I often have a tough time with these challenges as I'm really a card person, but for this one, I knew right away what I wanted to do.

Here is my project:


I'm going to show a couple more views because it was really hard to get good pics of this for some reason.  I  covered a recycled coffee bag with patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus 12x12 pad.  I used another of the papers for the band around the bag where the label was.  My cute image is Shawna With Latte from MayzyArt.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with my Copics.   The fun sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  I printed it out and cut it into single words.  I thought this would make perfect for a gift of whole bean coffee for one of my coffee addict friends!

Here is a close-up with the sentiment:


And finally a close-up of just Shawna:


I am also entering my card in the Charisma Cardz Challenge #27 (recycle something - I recycled the coffee bag) and the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #194 (food and drink). 
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day and hope to see you soon!

  12. Great idea with the recycled coffee bag. I guess this is why it is a challenge...we sometimes have to step out of our card making comfort zone. :-) Cute sentiment, too.
