Here is a card that I have created to help inspire you...

General information:
  • I am probably one of the few people on the planet (okay maybe not the planet but definitely the western world and probably parts of the eastern one) who does not drink coffee or even tea for that matter.  So, this was an interesting challenge for me.  However, quite a while back I had come across a fabulous saying and wrote it down to create into a sentiment in the future.  Well future meet present, and as a result, I've got a great inspirational card for someone.  Uh...the great implies the meaning behind the card, not the quality.   Yup after two years, I'm still insecure about my abilities and still measuring them up to others; although, I'm at least not doing it as often as before so I suppose that is progress of sorts!

    Digital Image Details: 
    • Latté Cup:  The main image on the front is the Latté Cup.  The image is currently available in the FBD store.  You can find it by clicking on the image name or watermark below.  The image was coloured in digitally.
    Digital Sentiment Details: 
    • While I didn't create the saying (couldn't find an original author), I did create the sentiment. 

    Digital Image Details: 
    • This tea cup is the same image that you see in the digital paper.  For more details, see below.
    Digital Sentiment Details: 
    • The other half of the saying.

    Paper Products: 
    • Card, image and sentiment base:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
    Digital Paper Products: 
    • I created the coffee cup paper and the tea paper using images from Scribbles Designs.  I also created the textured paper used in behind the image on the front and the sentiment on the inside.  Look for these new papers plus several more coming out soon as part of a new Scribble Doodle Designs paper set called, "Sip and Savour".
    Challenges I hope to enter...
    Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  I hope you have the chance to go and check out the Latté Cup image I used, along with all the other great images available in the store.  If you are into coffee or know people who are, then FBD is the place to be.  Heather has such a wide variety of coffee images, you'll be able to easily find what you need. 

    If you are looking for more fresh brewed inspiration, I'll be back in a couple weeks to showcase a card made with another one of Heather's awesome new images.  

    At Fresh Brewed Designs we always have a fresh pot of creativity brewing. So stop by and join us for a cuppa whenever you want!

    Until next time,
