Caffeine Problem for Off the Wall Craftiness Color Challenge and Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge

Hmmmmmmmm..........What could that title mean???  It means, I love my coffee and so do many others!  So, when I saw the stamp set from Skipping Stones called Funny Coffee - Vol. 1......I knew I had to buy it.  I'm just hoping that since this is a "Vol. 1" set that that means there will be a Vol. 2!!!!

School was canceled today due to snow and that means extra crafting time for me!!!  I was up super early and did some shoveling then I hit the craft cave!  I knew when I saw the Off the Wall Craftiness #36 Color Challenge that it would be just perfect for a "coffee" card!  Pair that up with the Skipping Stones #53 Sketch (since now I actually have their stamps to use with THEIR sketches) and you've got a winner!

 Coffee anyone??? 

That coffee cup stain looks so darn good in VersaFine's Vintage Sepia.  It actually looks real!

Love the inside???  I stamped off the ink once before stamping the image again on the inside of the card.  This makes it light enough for someone to write over top of it.  I was really tempted to sit this by my husband's coffee cup and see if he panicked because he thought he set his cup on

Materials Used:
Skipping Stones Designs - Funny Coffee - Vol. 1
PTI card stock- Dark Chocolate, Kraft and Stamper's Select White
PTI patterned paper - Sugar Plum & 2008 Bitty Dot Basics
PTI dies - Medium Scallop and Victorian Lace Border
Gina K. ribbon
VersaFine ink - Vintage Sepia
PTI ink - Dark Chocolate

I hope you enjoy looking at these humorous cards.  Sometimes, I think you need these ones that make you chuckle.  I know I need a bright spot in my day and hopefully these cards do the same for someone else.

Ohhhh, I think I might need that stamp set too. I am a coffee-a-holic. I have a sign in my kitchen that says "crabby till I get my coffee". I love your card and it WAS a match made in heaven for this week's OTWC colors. Glad to have you playing along.
