Mocha Mojo Monday Latte Anyone?

Yes, it is Monday. 
For some of us that requires multiple cups of Joe, 
although I prefer tea, 
to get started.
It truly amazes me how long the lines are at places like Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, and even the mini-marts, just so people can get a cup of coffee.  
For today's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card, I dug out an old (but favorite) HOP stamp set to make a coffee themed card which I could enter in the current challenge at Pumpkin Spice.  I hadn't used these stamps before (I generally use the tea related stamps in the set.) so that qualifies this card for the NBUS challenge, too.
Last week I received some fabulous Graphic 45 paper pads from Pumpkin Spice, which I recently won in their Freebie Friday giveaway.  To thank them I have used some of those papers for this card.  I double stamped the coffee cup, once on the circle and a second time on scrap.  The 2nd cup I embossed with clear embossing powder to give it the look of a ceramic mug before fussycutting and popping onto the 1st cup.
I am entering this card in the following:
Pumpkin Spice Challenge # 83 - Coffee or Coffee Color 
NBUS Challenge #2 - Anything Goes + I chose option 4. 
 Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Sparkle n Sprinkle September Challenge - Anything Goes (I've used embossing powder)
Robyn's Fetish Challenge #229 - Use an embossing folder
That reminds me.... 
This time of year Wawa always has a pretty good Pumpkin Spice Cappucino.  Mixed with the French Vanilla, it is awesome.  
Looks like I'm done here.


  1. Simply delicious. Love all the texture and any coffee card is fabulous in my eyes!

  2. For a tea-drinker, you have made a sensational card for all of us coffee-drinkers, Debi! Those patterns and how you've used them for the MM sketch are absolutely perfect for a coffee card. And I love how you've given that cup such special treatment and how you've sponged your paper edges to give everything wonderful depth. Of course, I adore the punny sediment! Thank you so much for playing in my second NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Amazing card, Debi! Fantastic texture from the embossing and your combo of neutrals is magnificent. I love this card.

  4. Fabulous card Debi! Love the colors and the background and, well, everything about it :-). So glad you shared it with us for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge.

  5. This is an amazing card. The colors are great and I really love the sentiment that you used. Thank You for sharing with us over at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog.
