I Don't Have A Problem with Caffeine...

 Let me start by saying that I have been hitting the caffeine pretty hard these last couple of days, I have had a LOT happening and that extra jolt of energy has kept me going! When I got up this morning at 5AM I did a zombie march into the kitchen to get a cup of caffeine, and directly into the craft room to grab this stamp set!!
I used this weeks mojo Monday Sketch, and as always, I enjoyed the challenge of working within the sketch and finding a creative way to showcase the fun sentiment! I HAD to have this saying on my card, and a slide out tag worked perfectly!

The tag was cut with my cuttlebug using the Olivia tag die. The stamp set is from TCP and is called coffee cafe. The papers are a mix of My minds eye, and the Girls Paperie. The background was embossed with a cuttlebug folder that kind of looks like squares of chocolate {maybe thats just because I'm hungry} but I'm sticking with it ...........looks like it to me! :)

I watercolored the stamped coffee cup with Stampin'Up markers, and coated it with crystal effects for a realistic look. Of course a little touch of glitter so the shimmer police don't come and drag me away for breaking the law!!  :) *giggle*



So we had a very very last minute change to the Hello Thursday lineup for the new cricut blog and I {and the whole team} was up late last night whipping up all new projects for todays release. It was a whirlwind of activity and a Herculean effort to put it all together! I have to applaud Our team leader Jana I know she was up all night!! I'm so in awe of the team for putting their worlds on hold to make it all happen with literally a couple hour notice! Visit the Cricut blog and Take a look at what these amazing designers managed in such a short time!
